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.
Review Massachusetts Bay Community College
I was in the biotechnology program, but I had to switch because the advisor (who is the only advisor) did not approve of my decision to dip my toe into a different class not apart of the curriculum. Anyway, the engineering program has a particular section for engineering and you're mostly in one of those two rooms. Depending on the teacher, the workload is not bad at all and the teachers are the best!
This is definitely the best community college in the Boston area (I would know, I tried Bunker Hill and Roxbury Community College). It has a surprisingly good academic reputation, and professors who genuinely care!
