5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love my school! I'll admit that UMASS Lowell wasn't my number 1 pick in high school, but now that I've been here for 2 years, I would choose it all over again. I never expected to love UML as muhc as I do now. i wouldnt change it for the world. UML has given me such great opportunities and lifelong friends. My time here so far has certainly been memorable from attending hockey games at the Tsongas, studying long hours in O'leary Library before every exam, starting clinicals at Mary Immaculate Nursing home, and participating in club sports, such as Underwater Hockey. Yes thats a sport, and its awesome! I would never have had the ability to make these memories at any other school. Go Riverhawks!

Overall Experience: The college experience for me in general is awkward because the people are basic everywhere.

Overall Experience: I wish I had applied to the U.S. college before but I stayed in Ukraine due to health issues.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Many different types of housing options. There's always something to do on or near campus. Not too far from Boston.

4 College Junior

Party Scene: The party scene definitely benefits the students at ULowell, and there are a lot of parties on weekends.

Off-Campus Dining: The city of Lowell can be a bit sketchy at times, but there are a few good places to eat if you know where to look. Some nicer restaurants are only a 10-minute car ride away from campus, as well.

4 College Junior

Campus Food: Fairly large variety of food available on campus. Another highlight is the new addition of Induction stoves to the dorms which helps students who wish to make their own food to be able to do so in a less time-consuming manner.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: The college got back to me in a relatively short time with information pertaining to my financial aid. Unfortunately, I didn't qualify for much at all, but this is probably partially my fault for not completing the FAFSA on time.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Overall it's a good school for the price.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Some majors have a ton of support, some not so much. The career fair that's held twice a year is very helpful. There are many services which help you get your resume, cover letter, LinkedIn profile, etc set up. The co-op program has gotten much better in the last year as well.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: It depends on what campus you attend. North campus has the STEM + buisiness students, so many people study a lot. There are also many commuters. It's not easy to make close friends who you spend all your time with, but there are plenty of nice people to hang around at school with in between classes or after school to do work with. South campus is a different story.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: People have been robbed on campus by people outside. It's not very common, but it's too common for a college campus. The police are very good an monitor the premises but there's only so much they can do.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: The Men's Hockey team is excellent, but that's about all there is to say about the athletics.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I say it's great because of the price and availability. Many of the places are renovated, but many also aren't. I've come across and landlords and tenants who try to make the process a hassle and make things more expensive than they should be, but it's not too difficult to find a reasonable room/place to rent.

2 College Sophomore

Party Scene: There isn't really a party scene, but there are plenty of bars downtown if you're over 21. People have small parties, and there are frat parties if you like frats, but it's pretty weak compared to other schools. Partly due to the fact that it's Lowell and the students are outnumbered by the residents.

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: It's pretty bad. Most people go to Suppa's around North Campus, but most people who live in that area shop at Market Basket or another super market in the area.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: There are some scholarships if you're a top students. Very difficult to obtain.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: There are usually enough parties to find. Best parties are at the frat houses. Party scene allows students to take a break from classwork

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: There is some off-campus housing offered through the school but the school does not assist students in finding off-campus housing. Safety is an issue as many neighborhoods and locations are unsafe.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Cost is average. There are plenty of different types of restaurants available. Student discounts aren't offered at most of the places.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: School policies are appropriate and there aren't usually any problems.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Applying for the FAFSA is easy and then the financial aid office can answer further questions

2 College Sophomore

Campus Food: There is no dining hall on north campus. The best places are places that require River Hawk Dollars. The P.O.D. is very overpriced. The dining hall hours are very bad.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The best options are the suites because they are much nicer than dorms for the price. Housing on campus is more expensive than living in an off campus apartment but is more convenient. Housing process is difficult and leaves some students without housing.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: I heard they are crowded.
