Suffolk University Reviews
I LOVE Suffolk. I am starting my second year at the university and have already taken advantage of the plethora of opportunities that the school offers. I've gone to model united nations conferences at Harvard, flown to Spain to Suffolk's Madrid campus, and been accepted as an RA for the 2018-2019 school year. Boston is the ideal place for college students and the opportunities in the city are endless. Suffolk set me up with the perfect work study and the dorms are clean and come with great views. I can't wait to go back in the fall. Go Rams!
Suffolk University has stood out from day one. From the application process to the admission team they are very accommodating. I am currently a incoming graduate student. While I have not yet attended my first class I would say that the admission ceremony was a very warm and inviting event. The diversity grade truly reflects that. There is a wide range of students all over the world that attend Suffolk University. I am very exciting to start this new chapter of my life at Suffolk!
I came here because I was looking for a career as a forensic scientist and saw they had a Biochemistry program that catered to that. The program is not an ASCLD accredited program, which I wish I had known sooner. This means their curriculum is not necessarily in line with the standards required to pursue a career in this particular field. There is no sense of community here. The campus is very scattered and unorganized; you have to do a lot of literal footwork to seek resources, as everything is located in different buildings and on several different floors. It was hard to streamline resources here. Housing is limited to Freshman and so you're stuck either commuting or paying a ridiculous amount of money to live in the city after that. Plan ahead. The library is beautiful, though.
