The social aspect of the school can lack at times, but that's not really the University's fault. For one, the location of the school is not the greatest as its not as accessible via public transportation as other schools in a more city-enviroment are. Also, there are many cliques and groups on campus, making it somewhat uncomfortable to meet new people. However, most of these groups are very welcoming and will make great long time friends once your time at the University is finished. This school is by no means a "party school" but that doesn't mean you can't have an enjoyable time on campus. After all, school is what you make out of it.

I have only attended UMass Dartmouth for 3 semesters now, and those months spent there have literally been the worst periods of time in my life. The social life is terrible: I have been kicked out of 'parties' under suspicion that I am a homosexual. On top of that, this past semester I was physically assaulted by those living in my suite multiple times because they simply did not like me. The only friend I made on campus passed away the first weekend of this past semester due to a heroin overdose. I literally cannot think of a single aspect of this school that I can honestly say is not terrible: from the academics, to the food, to the dorms, to the campus life, and everything in between. I cannot transfer to another school unless I want to lose many of the credits I have earned so far and therefore I am stuck at UMass Dartmouth. To anybody considering this school, I STRONGLY suggest you look anywhere else for education. And I would go as far as to say that I would rather not have gone to college at all than attend this university had I known what I was getting myself into. -5/5

All the teachers are very nice and there are a lot of extracurricular activities and clubs on campus. The school also puts on many events and the housing is good.
