From Suffolk University

Suffolk University is student-centered. We’re committed to nurturing our students' academic, professional, and personal journeys and preparing them for success—however they define it.

Experiential learning is a cornerstone of a Suffolk education. Thanks to our partnerships with Boston’s top employers, students enjoy internships, service learning opportunities, and project-based curricula. Our downtown location places students at the center of all these possibilities—along with Boston’s famous arts, history, music, food, and sports scenes.

The workforce needs culturally competent thinkers who understand problems on a global scale. Suffolk students gain intercultural insights on campus, in Boston, on our 50+ study abroad programs, and at our campus in Madrid, Spain.

We’ve been welcoming students from all walks of life since our founding in 1906. Diversity is in our DNA, and we celebrate it in our inclusive community.

The Suffolk experience is truly life-changing. It will change yours.
