#2 Best Colleges in Massachusetts

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!

#4 Best Colleges in Massachusetts
- 4 Year
- Williamstown, MA
- Rating 3.83 out of 5 303 reviews
Alum: TL;DR: Williams is one of the best schools out there, especially for economically underprivileged and/or international students. Apply even if you think you won’t get in!
Financials: I am a recent alumnus from a foreign country who had to pay less than 3K per year(!) towards my education at Williams; the rest was covered by non-repayable Williams grants. The College also pays for your medical insurance, ALL book expenditures, yearly round-trip to your home country (with all expenses). Other one-off expenses they covered: getting a visa, passport renewal, dental expenditures (over $10K). For someone who comes from a poor family whose total earnings are less than $30K/year, all this was an enormous benefit!
Academics: Williams is very strong because its professors take time to teach you the material. 1-1 teaching sessions, research work with professors is easily attainable because professors care about their students.
Exit opportunities: plentiful, prosperous, and very accessible!

#6 Best Colleges in Massachusetts
- 4 Year
- 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.

#9 Best Colleges in Massachusetts

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!

University of Massachusetts - Amherst

- Amherst, MA
- Rating 3.71 out of 5 3,584 reviews
Sophomore: UMass Amherst is an amazing, financially viable option for in-state students. As an in-state student, I can state that I am paying a very reasonable price for my education. I have enjoyed every class I have taken so far and have had amazing, dedicated professors. There is an abundance of extracurricular activities to choose from and there is always something to do on campus. It is easy to get caught up in the party culture however, it is just as easy to avoid it. Downtown Amherst and the surrounding towns, namely Northampton, are fun to explore and are easily accessible by the PVTA bus system. The campus food is amazing; the food does get repetitive at times, but there are many dining halls that offer different options daily. Overall, I am thrilled with UMass and feel that I am getting more than my money's worth!
