1 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Living off campus in Boston? Good luck! It's expensive and hard to find. The dorms are expensive too but at least you can take out financial aid to pay for them.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are 2 grocery stores within walking distance, although to me the prices seem a little on the high side. There are a few little restaurants nearby that will deliver to the dorms which is nice. Mission Hill Sushi is particularly good.

College Freshman

Administration: I'm kind of a goody-two-shoes so I don't have first hand experience with the strictness of policies. However, I've had friends who have been busted underage with alcohol and the RA's and RD's genuinely seemed sorry and didn't want to be harsh with them on their first infraction. I also knew of someone who was busted multiple times with drugs and, despite a zero-tolerance policy, was let off the hook multiple times.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: The financial aid process was very easy. I filled out FAFSA and got my aid award from the school. I ended up needing to find a third party loan and also do a payment plan with the school - the school helped facilitate both those things, and the process was incredibly easy. I've also had good interactions with staff whenever I've had concerns about being able to make a payment or deposit on time. They are very reasonable and want to help you however they can.

College Freshman

Party Scene: I'm not a party person. As an older (21+) student living in an apartment, I am able to have what's called a "Wet Suite". In certain dorms if all of the occupants are over 21 you can apply for a wet suite which allows you to have a set amount of wine and beer. Hard alcohol is prohibited but generally, if you aren't being a loud nuisance, no one will notice or care if you have a bottle vodka as long as you aren't obvious about it. There are plenty of bars within walking distance that are more appealing than going to a dorm room party where you might get busted.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: The main cafeteria, Beatty, has pretty good hours and an acceptable selection. The salad bar is usually well stocked, but the other cafeteria available (at MassArt) is generally better. Even at peak times in the morning and at lunchtime it's fairly fast to get in and out depending on what you want to eat. Good coffee bar set up with hot and iced varieties. A big perk is that you don't have to eat in the actual cafeteria, you can grab and go unlike some buffet/all you can eat style college cafeterias that force you to swipe your card upon entry and then take your chances on finding something you like.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I'm really impressed with the food offerings on campus. There are 2 different cafeterias to choose from as well as an on-campus convenience store that accepts meal plan dollars. On any given day it's easy to find healthy options like soup, salad or sandwich; as well as frozen organic meals at the convenience store.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Its Boston. Obviously there are tons of places to eat. Even more if you take the train, which for some reason, a ton of students dont do.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: If I need to park overnight or just run inside, its fine. They don't care if you park there especially if you ask nicely. And its really cheap for a night parking pass.

2 College Junior

Party Scene: There is nothing good happening at WIT. No one really cares though. If you want to have a good time, you figure out how to do so. I have been to many parties on campus, and they're fine but usually leaving campus is best if you want to be loud.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: Depending on what you get, its okay. If you're a salad and a Naked Juice kind of person, you're all set. You get used to it by junior year.

4 College Junior

Majors: Architecture. Exceptionally challenging but you learn a lot if you don't rage quite because of your teacher

3 College Junior

Scholarships: It's not too hard to get a scholarship

4 College Junior

Local Area: It's Boston, some of it is great, some of it sucks. Same as any other city.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Meh, only the athletes really seem to care about sports.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: I know numerous girls who have been raped or assaulted by their classmates and not reported it because they don't believe anything will come of it. There are students who seems to have a kind of off view on sex and consent.

College Junior

Greek Life: We have a super low key, co-ed, academic fraternity.

2 College Junior

Campus Housing: So far my experience has been exceptionally negative. I've lived in EWT, Louis Prang and 610. The first two have cockroaches, and all three have mice. When I say mice I mean You can easily see one or two a day once the cold weather sets in, if your food isn't in plastic boxes it will be eaten. One mouse lept out of my closet at me.

The temperature regulation is poor at best, one of the rooms in EWT, the exterior walls are very cold to the touch, and there was a constant breeze through my window even when closed and locked.

Also many of the quad rooms are forced, there's bairly room to stand, let alone store four people's worth of clothing.

1 College Sophomore

Greek Life: We only have one fraternity, it is female and male, and its an academic fraternity that does nothing.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Nothing too close to school that is affordable for students, therefore the neighborhoods aren't as safe as they could be because students are forced to live far away from campus near the projects.

1 College Sophomore

Party Scene: This is not a party school, we are all engineers

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: many wish it were easier to get involved in varsity sports, especially since they are all division 3

3 College Sophomore

Administration: I have had some very good teachers and some very bad teachers. Overall I would like to see department heads get more involved in supporting student led organizations that better the department.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I don't personally live on campus but I have many friends that do, I spend a lot of time on campus, I know that maintenance is often very slow and it may take weeks to fix problems that should be handled more quickly.
