3 College Junior

Health & Safety: Apart from the occasional alert email about something that happened I really don't know what happens on campus

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: There are some great courses and professors and then there are some that aren't so great. Since this school is becoming more of a research school the professors are great researchers but awful teachers at times,

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Career services is great especially since my major requires it

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: The on campus housing could be better. I only lived there for one year and then moved off campus and I now live closer to the campus than the dorms.

4 College Junior

Athletics: The only sport most people care about is hockey which is huge here, the other sports are talked about and sometimes attended however I've never been.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Very difficult at times, most professors are good and helpful but in aspects can be better

4 College Senior

It is challenging at times, but who said college would be easy?

3 College Freshman

Academics: The workload is manageable but like with all colleges, it varies from course to course.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: There is a very diverse community of students and there are events all the time to make everyone feel included.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: While the school does have an anti-smoking policy, people still smoke a lot.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Umass Lowell is a good school with good programs and courses. Professors are helpful and there are a lot of courses to choose from.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are a lot of internship and co-op opportunities if one knows where to look.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Riverhawk hockey games are some of the most fun sporting events I have ever attended. The crowd is excited and engaged and care about what's going on in the game and the team is one of the best in the country.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It's incredibly affordable as a state school and offers great teachers and programs for engineers. They offer plenty of opportunities to get internships and co-ops and have a very effective system of helping the students that want it. Everyone here is friendly and it's a great environment to live in.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: They have the blue poles for student who feel unsafe.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Most students take their degrees seriously.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I have the handicap suite, so it's pretty nice.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It's the only school I really looked into, so I don't really have a comparison.

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: I choose to rate "It's great" because students don't do hard drugs from what I noticed. The main thing on campus for students to use is defiantly Marijuana, which is good because it's decriminalized. I have heard of students using Adderall to study for big exams.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: On campus it is relatively safe because its all students generally and nothing that I've heard of so far as happened. I chose to rate "It's okay" because I don't necessarily live on campus, although the school owns the building I live in. I amongst a lot of other transfer students and mostly upperclassman live downtown which is isolated from other parts of campus. In downtown its mostly the people who live in lowell and there's a lot of alcoholics, homeless people and drug addicts in that area. I've heard of students getting mugged and assaulted in this area which is why I rated it as such.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: A big problem that I've noticed, as well as other students have, is that a lot of the professors are great teachers. There is a different between being a professor and a teacher, but professor must also teach. I feel as if they just lecture to students, rather than getting the class room involved and/or are just dull and dense. I'd prefer to have an interactive teacher who seems interested in the topic and draws in the students. To myself and a lot of students it seems like we have to teach ourselves a lot of the material and seek extra help, which seems pointless considering we're spending so much money to get taught and we somewhat aren't.

Campus Housing: Specifically where I live on campus is somewhat a hassle because I have to take a shuttle every day to get to class, which takes about half an hour. The perks to where I live are great, because I can walk into town and buy items that I need, whereas other dorms on campus don't have that option. A con to where I live is that the food quality isn't very good, so students tend to travel to other parts of campus or spend money in town to get something better.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: The Greek Life at Umass Lowell is okay. A lot of students do go to their events, but it isn't as big as it would be at other schools in other areas of the country like down south. Although it isn't great, people still enjoy themselves.
