3 College Junior

2 College Junior

Campus Food: uncooked, burned, doesn't tast good, you name it.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: It's incredibly easy to find an apartment in Boston, and I know people that will be getting an apartment incredibly close to campus next semester. The cost is very reasonable.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Boston food is phenomenal and incredibly varied.

5 College Freshman

Administration: I wouldn't have it any other way. They are strict on the things that they need to be strict on, but they're more helpful, than anything. Just don't be an idiot and get caught.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: It's what you would expect for school food. It's better than high school food. There's a large amount of options, but seeing those same options every day makes it seem like there aren't many

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The only downside is not having a kitchen as a freshman, but that is expected. Things in the dorms also break a lot (such as heating), but it is very easy to get someone to come to the dorm and fix it.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I do not have off-campus housing, therefor I am not aware of it's pros and cons.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are many different places to eat near the campus.

3 College Freshman

Administration: The campus is very strict when it comes to social lives.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: The financial aid process wasn't too bad. A tip is to begin the financial aid process sooner rather than later.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: It's more than I expected for a small tech school, but it could be better.

2 College Freshman

Campus Food: The campus food is not extremely healthy aside from the salad bar, which gets boring because who wants a salad for every meal every day? There is not a big variety either.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I really enjoy living on campus. Instead of regular dorms with just two people, most of the dorms are suites with 8-12 people with multiple bedrooms. This is much more like an apartment, which I enjoy. They are spacious and mostly clean.

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.

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.
