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.

Great professors and a welcoming comminity. I have yet to have a professor that I have not liked! they take time out of their day to get to knw students personally. They are truly there to help. I love the small campus, it is located in a safe town. The campus safety officers are quick to respond.
I loved that I had small class sizes at Bay Path, I was able to get to know every professor that I had. I strongly disliked the fact that every year at Bay Path, my tuition went up significantly, leaving me with more student debt/loans than I am comfortable with or would like. Bay Path also promised me that I could finish my double degree in four years, it ended up taking me five years because the classes from my degrees overlapped in times a lot, being a small school, there was sometimes only one section for each class available. Bay Path opened up doors and opportunities for me, which was great; I was able to travel to The Gambia, Africa and Florence, Italy with Bay Path.
