Bay Path University Reviews
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.
I am in my fourth semester as an online student. I love the format and the pace of the program. I can take up to two classes per session and the sessions are 6 weeks long. There are 3 sessions per semester. It's not the traditional semester length but it's perfect for me. I work full-time and I volunteer with a couple of civic organizations so if this program did not exist I would not be able to complete my degree. They took all of the credits I had earned at a local community college helping me even more. I cannot wait to be able to say that I am a proud alumnus of Bay Path University! Love this program and the opportunities it will afford me. This program does include a series of classes which are meant to elevate you as a woman and develop your leadership skills and potential. They are required.
