I am a freshmen and although I don't have much experience here at UMASS Lowell, I do have to say that this college makes your transition from high school to college so easy. They really want to make your transition as smooth as possible and they strive for you to be the best worker or educator as you can be. The professors genuinely care about your learning and the university itself provides many resources for you to succeed. I love this school and I recommend anyone of any major to come here!

As a current student who grew up living around the University of Massachusetts- Lowell, I have seen UML change for the better. Growing up if someone told me that they were going to UML my first thought would be that they probably didn't care much about their education. Although, this thought changed. When I first started to go to UML I was very intimidated by how large the campuses were and how many students were there. You never see the same face twice and you see people from different ethnic backgrounds- it's refreshing! As a person who graduated high school with four African Americans, seeing the diversity on campus is a relief. Because I am a commuter I do not eat the campus food or live on campus, so I cannot give a fair judgment on the food. It's tough to make friends if you don't live on campus or if you are shy. It's easy to get lost in the crowd.
