3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: For the most part, the food is tolerable. Res is kinda gross most of the time, absolutely disgusting occasionally, and absolutely delicious very rarely. Birch and the Commuter Caf are great.

Campus Housing: Depending on where you live, the dorms can be very nice or not so nice. As your grad year approaches, the housing gets better and better. The worst place to live is the freshmen quad, and the best is the woodlands. Oak Glen and Pine Dale are ok. The Dells have paper thin walls and are party central.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food here is just okay. Some days it is great, other days it is just bad or not enough options (in response to res). Personally the best place to eat on campus is Birch. It just tastes so good and you have a plethora of things to food to choose from. The only downside is it is on the opposite side of campus from the freshman or sophomore buildings.

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I live on campus, so I'm not actually that sure. Dartmouth is a very small town, and feels very country-ish, so there aren't a lot of housing options.

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Dartmouth doesn't have much to offer. A handful of pizza or chinese places and then a bunch of fast food joints. Theres two or three sit-down restaurants, but nothing too classy. Everything is cheap though, and often open late, so that's a plus.

5 College Freshman

Administration: The campus is generally very lenient on most topics, they obey the laws and have rules they enforce, but they don't force them on you and interrupt you continuously

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Of all the scholarships I applied to, I received three. They helped pay for college a bunch, but my savings have been squeezed to cover the remainder.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: I generally stay off campus for parties, we try to avoid risking campus life or probation. Of the few on campus events I've been to though, they've been enjoyable

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: It's pretty good, but can often be hit or miss. Some of the foods at res have been totally amazing, swordfish and lobster are prime examples, but I've had my share of gross foods too (i.e. fish tacos or their pork). They generally give wide variety though, which is definitely awesome.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It's comfortable, and the people are nice. A little bland, but architecturally interesting. The people are generally really cool too, but I have the short end with hallmates and my roommate

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I don't know much about living off campus.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Off campus dining is great. I live in the area, so these are the restaurants that I go to normally when I'm out with my friends and family. Almost everything around is delicious and the cost is manageable. Lots of options and cultural experiences, as well as vegetarian/vegan options.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Strictness on campus is enforced quite harshly, however, in my opinion it is understandable.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Personally, I didn't have much of a problem with the financial aid process. (Even though I totally think I should be getting more because both of my parents are on disability!) However, I know many students who are not receiving the financial aid they deserve and I'm honestly shocked at the prices they're still supposed to be able to afford.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: As a freshman, I haven't been to too many parties just yet. On Friday and Saturday nights (and sometimes even Thirsty Thursday!) you can find a small group partying it up in a freshman dorm breaking a million rules and trying to learn what their limits are. However, many freshman I know still complain about the lack of parties. I've been to the dells and maybe it's just the ones I've been to, but I think they're overrated. Don't get me wrong, you can totally find a good party there if you know where to go, but I think UMass Dartmouth has a good happy-medium of parties and academia.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: There are certain places on campus that are good for certain things.. It all depends. Res tends to mess with people's stomachs... Birch is good, depending on what time of day you get it, and then it's still a hit or miss. I like Mondo's in the commuter cafe, and 2mato is good as well. Outtakes is always reliable for bagels, and the library cafe is great for anything except hot chocolate.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Dorming on campus totally makes the college experience. My parents live in the next town over and it's the perfect mix of being able to see them as well as being able to become independent and live on my own and make my own decisions. It's letting me become a big girl.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of restraunt chains.

5 College Freshman

Administration: You are independent and can do whatever you want.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: It's a party school for a reason

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It's meant for houding and that's what it does

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: It is a whole lot better than the res food here because it tastes like home cooking.

4 College Freshman

Administration: They help us out a lot and we can go there for any questions.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I have not heard of any scholarships that are offered to us.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: You can always find a party here on campus whether it is at the dells, or off campus.
