Bentley has been a great experience for me. I came here from out of state and the community has been extremely welcoming. Bentley offers many clubs, sports and activities to get involved in and the academics are rigorous. The accounting and finance core curriculum is one of the best in the country, preparing grads for jobs with top employers. It was the best choice I made so far in my life to join the Bentley community!!!
So far we have been very unimpressed with Bentley. My son is a sophomore this year. Last year was a joke. Full tuition to sit in their rooms and take classes. The food is terrible and there was zero effort put into helping these kids meet people. It is very money driven and political. I would love to have my kid transfer but he has some nice friends so is staying.
Great sense of community with strong academics. Most professors have industry experience which is a valuable contribution to class material.
The campus is very beautiful and overall people are super open and willing to get to know you. My best advice is to get involved on-campus as soon as possible
Bentley is a great school that sets students up for success. While it is primarily accounting school, the career opportunities for other paths are constantly being invested in improving.
I really love the small classes and how it allows students to bond with their peers and professors. Something I would change though, is the residence halls.
Really good balance between social life and academics. I love that campus is not too big or too small. Ideal size not to be overwhelmed but also find good friends. Many stairs around campus😅
Great small campus community feel. Most professors are always willing to help with any struggles you may have if you ask them.
Bentley sets you up for success after graduation. The amount of work put in during undergrad is worth the degree received.
I have loved going to bentley. It has a great education and lots to offer in social and athletic aspects
I have loved my time at Bentley University so far! I feel as though the students and Bentley community are unmatched with everyone being so involved on campus as well as being so friendly.
Great school, the smaller number of overall students helps the professors connect with us and be there to help. Taking advantage of academic offices will really help you succeed.
100% return of investment. Incredible campus. Has a diverse community. Great courses and learning opportunities. The local area is somewhat good, especially Moody St. Is not a huge party college, but you definitely get the chance to go to some and have a lot of fun. Athletics are incredible. Professors are generally great. Campus food is average, the issue is having SODEXO as the company controlling the dining area. Dorms are generally good, except trees complex. Avoid that. Student life is awesome. Bentley is a go-to.
Great business education, but that's about it. Food is bad, social scene is bad, and very isolated from Boston so not much to do(feels like high school). If you want to be the best accountant ever go here. If you want to do anything else go to different school.
The school has provided me a great learning environment to grow and learn. I moved here from out of state and all the students have been very welcoming. The social scene is fun and I have met a lot of life long friends.
Bentley has been very great. All of the staff is so friendly and all of the students are very driven to do better and pursue a career in business.
Online classes are not as good as going to school in person. But the professors at Bentley did a great job balancing the work load.
While having to take classes remotely is something that is very difficult to get used to, having professors that make class interactive and interesting make it a little easier to pick up information than if they didn't.
My experience at Bentley University so far has been pretty satisfactory. In my first year, Covid has certainly taken a toll on the ability to interact, and as an athlete, practice and workout. However, Bentley has done a good job at working to keep people on campus and deliver a relatively fun experience while adhering to Covid guidelines.
Zoom is not fun. Makes my head hurt. Breakout rooms are silent. Zoom is too confusing as I keep leaving class by accident.
