I am studying Communications here currently, about to go into my fourth semester, and I have attended mainly the Wellesley Hills campus. The campus is very safe, and there are a ton of resources. The faculty are extremely helpful and really want you to succeed. Because there aren't many students, getting one on one tutoring or help in a subject is very easy. While there isn't a ton of student involvement, there are still ways to get involved and make the most out of your 2 or 3 years here. There's Student Government, as well as clubs. The reason for three stars is some of the professors. While most of mine have been good, a lot of the math professors are seriously lacking. Also, the class selection isn't great when you get into your later semesters. I would definitely recommend Massbay to anyone looking to save money on education. Overall, it's been a great experience.

I really love all the professors at the college! I have never had any trouble with any of them. They are so helpful and understanding. I also really love the programs and certificates available. I am studying Interior Design and the certificate is a great start for my future! The teachers really do care about you doing well. Something that I would like to see a difference in would be the staff in the front office that takes all payments. They don't seem to have much interest in helping succeed and going through simple processes. I would also love to see more events where students can meet other students. It's hard being in a community college where your restricted from living with other students and being in a small community like regular colleges. Other than that, I would recommend MassBay to anyone, any day.
Massbay has a very active and inclusive community. There is always someone to talk to about what you need. There are great resources at the school and it's a great slow start for those unsure about college. Massbay is also a great place to return for education and there are many students that range over multiple age groups and backgrounds. There are many opportunities available at the school, you just need to reach out and take them.
