Suffolk is a relatively small community so it is easy to meet other students, to talk with professors and make use of the available resources for students - which vary from academic to personal help, there are many resources! However, I am aware that residence life can improve in more ways than one.
Review Suffolk University
Suffolk Univesity has an amazing location, the heart of downtown Boston! There is always something to do. Concerts, volunteer opportunities, festivals, 5k runs, bars, shopping, job opportunities, dance clubs, and restaurants. However, Suffolk only supplies students with two years of on-campus housing, Parking is scarce and cost of living is high.
I originally chose to study at Suffolk University because of its location and Interior Design program. Studying at Suffolk is exciting, because everyday, I get to walk around in a beautiful and historic city that the school utilizes. There interior design program is challenging, and the school helps with networking by having guest speakers and class trips to nearby companies. The school is involved in my future, and has academic advisors meet with students frequently to discuss school plans, internships, and other related business. While Suffolk isn't well-known for its sports, it is helpful in building a future for its students and creating and full-college experience in the heart of Boston.
