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.

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!

I absolutely ADORE UMass Lowell. The classes are challenging and interesting in my major, and the atmosphere of the school is exactly what I wanted. Most of the students here are extremely dedicated and interested in their fields of study, because they came here to get a degree, not to party. The professors tend to be extremely helpful and nice, and I have never taken a class that was taught by a TA (excepting Labs). I've met most of my best friends here, and I wouldn't change my choice of school for anything!
