4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love most of my professors. They're very helpful and enthusiastic and are always sharing real life stories to help me apply my learning to my future career as a nurse. The class sizes are very reasonable and they're run very effectively.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The career center helped me create a great resume that I've just used this summer to apply for jobs as a nursing assistant. I haven't yet seen the effectiveness of my resume they helped me with, but I am very confident with it. Nursing doesn't offer many internships but I think its understandable, its not a career with a lot of room for internships.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: In a city known for high crime rates, I've never felt unsafe on UML's campus. Between security in dorms, police, and emergency posts I feel very safe.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Almsot all dorms are renovated with air conditioning. Very nice quality, I do not have a complaint about it.

2 College Sophomore

Greek Life: If you are part of the greek life at UML, you are considered weird. Its not even recognized by the National Greek Society I've heard.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: As a new D1 school, the athletics are rising. The hockey team is ranked highly in the country and the attendance and spirit for them is commendable, not even comparable for other sports however.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I am part off the nursing program at UML, one in which I consider to be amongst the best in the school. We have many tools for hands on learning and I feel the simulation labs are extremely helpful. We have a lot of great technology that I'm confident will help me in my future career.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I personally don't know a whole lot of information about this. I feel safe on campus, which is important, but I cannot speak for all individuals.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I really like this school. The class sizes are manageable, the professors are pretty good, and the atmosphere is really great despite being in a dumpy city.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: People say that those who get a degree from a UMass school have a better chance of getting a job in Massachusetts than those who go to other schools. This is because so many alumni that go to UMass schools end up excelling in their fields, that you could be interviewed by a fellow alumni. That truly shows the value of Massachusetts public universities, and also shows how many people excel through UMass. The chancellor of UMass Lowell is currently travelling across the country asking alumni, who have branch out nationwide, to help support a fundraising campaign for the university. So many people succeed after graduating from UMass Lowell.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: UMass Lowell's campuses are all separated and integrated in the city, so depending where you end up living it might not be close to your classes or a dining hall. The housing process is a little chaotic because there aren't a lot of dorming options or space to build more dorms because the school is in the city.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Because the campuses are so urban and separated, Greek life doesn't play a huge role in student life. We all just kind of coexist.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: UMass Lowell just completely went to Division 1 for many sports, and despite the big leap this is from Division 2 the teams did exceptionally well and the student body showed a lot of support, especially in hockey and basketball. The club sports are also not ignored, in fact some teams get more credit than the Division 1 teams. UMass Lowell's Quidditch team, for example, is number one in their division.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: UMass Lowell is very unique. It is the kind of school that you hate because it is ugly, but it grows on you once you're there. It's located in a very interesting city that has a lot of history, and the school does a great job with incorporating the city with the students. I would recommend it to anyone and I'm so glad I go there.

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

Overall Experience: LOVE IT.

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

Athletics: There is a lot of school spirit for the hockey team especially around opening game.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Police patrol a lot but it is still lowell so no walking around after dark.
