Bay Path University Reviews
Bay Path University has been an amazing experience for me. A week after I found out I was accepted to Bay Path I had found out I was pregnant, but that didn't stop me from continuing my education. The staff and students here at Bay Path have been nothing but supportive and kind to me throughout my experience of being pregnant while going to school and then when I came back after my daughter. All of the professors I have had really care about me and my education and being able to succeed. I high recommended this university to everyone!
I have been here at this univ for 3 years now & I have faced the most discrimination & in your face racism from students & faculty in my whole life. As a POC your safety is not seen to be top priority. Each year more things happen to POC of all classes & majority ends up transferring out because actions are never taken. For Black History Month they served barbecue chips & said that was the representation of black culture. The education is amazing but with the lack of diversity, ignorant students and faculty, lack of safety, and honestly the lack of a campus life I wish I would have gone elsewhere. This was my top pick for college I boasted about this college to everyone before coming here. Now I hate to walk on this campus that cost too much and seems like all they care about is money. They say they love diversity but they dont. As a WOC I warn others DO NOT COME HERE!
Being a Junior here my experience has been great. Everyone here is EXTREMELY NICE. I have meet many cool peers and I have a lot of amazing professors! Mostly all the professors are here to see you rise not fall. Great school if you are looking for a small school, good academics, and safety is REALLY big here. BPU was ranked 1st for safest college in Massachusetts. However, BPU is not for everyone. If you are looking for a party school, apply somewhere else. Like every school, BPU has minor things that need to be changed; better food, better athletics. But, overall I wouldn't want to be anywhere else.
