3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I feel that I'm not receiving the best education that I can if I were at another more recognized school for my specific major. The spotlight for this school is really it's nursing and biology majors. That's were most of the renovations are being made in terms of classroom additions. However, for my specific major and college (College of Engineering), I'm not receiving or seeing the same renovations. It's upsetting but I am too far along in this school to transfer to a different location. I rather finish here and continue into graduate school at a more prestige and nationally recognized school specifically in the engineering field.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The value of a degree here is great, especially if you have a major that is accredited. However, it's not the best value as there are still many schools that trump this school.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: There's a lot of emphasis on how serious of a crime sexual assault is on campus. There are many services in place in the event of a sexual assault. The campus officials and the school police do a great job or stressing the importance of having a safe and healthy campus.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I believe the campus housing is overpriced. There are many more affordable living options off campus that many upperclassmen and graduate students take advantage of. However, free housing is a possibility if you receive the resident assistant (RA) job. Definitely take advantage of that if you can!

4 College Junior

Greek Life: I've heard great things about the Greek Life on campus such as its advantages it gives you when it comes to networking abilities and finding support when having academic or job searching troubles. Greek life can be an amazing resource to support your college career, but it's easy to get carried away with the partying and other fun elements offered from Greek life.

3 College Junior

Athletics: It's mainly okay for students who are athletes. They have the priority when it comes to the gym facilities other than the fitness center. If they want to have a practice, they will close the basketball courts or the pool so that teams may practice in them, with little or no notifications to the non-athletes.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: 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.

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: I literally know nothing about them.

1 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: 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

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Freshman dorms aren't too bad depending on which building you live in. Honors students can get into the apartments in their sophomore year and it's the best place to live. The apartments have kitchens which is helpful because the food on campus is way too expensive and is not the best

4 College Freshman

Athletics: There are a lot of good teams on campus and there is a good number of students who participate. It seems to take up a lot of time and classes have to be planned around the sport's schedule

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: There are a lot of events put on by Greek organizations that are for charity

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There aren't as many 'blue lights' around campus as there should be and they are too spread out

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Most classes are a good size, some professors can be a little intimidating to approach but most of them are really helpful

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The career center is really helpful and there are always a lot of internship and career fairs

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I am part of the cheerleading team. We are going to be competing again next year and we are very excited. Sports get greta funding and the athletes are well taken care of

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: 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.

4 College Student

Athletics: I'm apart of the UMD volleyball team so I love it but we don't get all that much funding and they almost took our program away which isn't fair but other than that great

4 College Student

Overall Experience: I love it here, I just have no clue what I'm going to do with my life. I'm almost having a mid-life crisis. Why am I choosing something that I want to do for the rest of my life right when I turn an adult.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Alcohol is accessible to underage students, and the dorms sometimes smell like weed.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Umass Dartmouth is very safe, being in a small town and in its own bubble. There is a lot of alcohol and drug usage, however.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love this school, Umass Dartmouth provides a high quality education with an affordable cost. I had a poor high school experience, Umass Dartmouth makes up for it with a wonderful academic and social environment.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Every student has an adviser that assists him or her with both academics and career related topics.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The freshman building are nothing special, but sophmore and upperclassmen housing is nice. Instead of having open hallways with communal bathrooms, dorms are sectioned off into "suites" containing 4 or 5 dorm rooms that share one bathroom and a living room.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: I am not in a Frat personally, but I have nothing against them. They are not snobbish and they help the Umass community.
