#2 Best Colleges in Boston Area

- Rating 4.13 out of 5 767 reviews
Niche User: Harvard University is one of the most prestigious academic institutions in the nation and the world. The rigor and the quality of education is what gave Harvard global recognition. Although the college admissions process may be intricate, the idea of attending Harvard some day would be an astonishing achievement. Harvard University, unlike any other institution in the United States, is confined to a few scholars. The school is small, yet the name instantly gives you a stimulant to boost your self-esteem. I always favored quality over quantity. Harvard University was founded in 1636 by the General Court of Massachusetts Bay, and was named after its first donor, Reverend John Harvard. Attending this university would feed my obsession with history. I come to from a humble background, yet stepping into the shoes of these historic visionaries will be the highlight of my potential career and, possibly, my life.

Freshman: I'm a freshman at Tufts and have had an amazing experience thus far. All my classes have been highly engaging and truly make me feel as though I'm learning rather than just going through the motions. The professors have always been helpful and open to questions and concerns. Many have definitely taken a personal interest in seeing their students succeed. Tufts provides an amazing environment for students to socialize and to find their place with a wide array of student organizations to join. As well as plenty of events for students to attend including sporting events, concerts, guest speakers, and more!

- Wellesley, MA
- Rating 3.74 out of 5 591 reviews
Sophomore: I have had the best two years of my life at Wellesley College and I'm excited about what comes in the remaining two as well. It has a great environment that is both encouraging and supportive in every aspect. The size of the school is perfect. I really like the small classrooms and the ability to get to know my professors and classmates well. It also allows for detailed and fruitful discussions during the lectures and seminars. I have been in a class of eight people in my first year! Apart from academic excellence, Wellesley also offers a wide range of clubs and sports where a student can easily find a group of friends like family. I also really like the lush green beautiful campus and Lake Waban.

Sophomore: BU is a wonderful school located in the heart of Boston, granting students access to all the sights of the city in addition to other college students. The university has an incredible staff, clubs for every interest, and a great community feel. You never have to worry about working out because you can walk miles from one end of the campus to the other. Additionally, the campus is used for events such as concerts, and so there is always something to do outside of BU right outside your door. The only drawback is that sometimes it is hard to get that college feel because of how close the city is, but a quick visit to the BU Beach to overlook the Charles River helps one feel like they have had some time with nature. Overall, it is a fantastic school!

Niche User: Wheaton College has exceeded our expectations in every way. There is nowhere else we'd rather our college student be, even though we are not in the New England area and it requires a flight in our case. The beautiful campus, the tight-knit community, the academics, support, professors, the incredible president, Dennis Hanno... I could go on and on. Wheaton truly is a special place. And that was our opinion BEFORE Covid. Seeing how carefully and responsibly they have handled this unfortunate situation has only further cemented Wheaton as a top-notch institution. If this school is not on your radar... research it. If it is on your list... GO!

Junior: I’ve been enjoying my time here!
Academically: professors are awesome. The work can range in how challenging it is but its all manageable.
Socially: it’s an awesome balance for me! I’ve found friends through living on campus, my classes, engaging in activities on campus, etc. The campus culture is polite. Campus can be quiet especially with COVID. However, I prefer a weekend to recharge or be with a few people anyways. Pre COVID, bigger parties happened but were done by 1 AM. There were also more in person events like BINGO. These still exist but distanced and outside if its nice. There are virtual events.
Area: the surrounding area is suburban. There are some restaurants/businesses to explore but ultimately it’s quiet. I wish we were close to Boston sometimes, but I ultimately feel at home on my cozy campus!
If I could change anything, I think counseling services could use more staff, diversity/inclusion needs to be more of a priority, and the food could use some improvements.
