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 is not exactly the "college experience" the average senior in High School seeks. It is more like gaining an education while being a full-time adult in a big city. You can't simply buy a handle of vodka and walk down the street to the nearest frat house. You have to find friends with houses who throw parties and hope the cops don't come. Or you need a fake ID and tons of money to afford an Uber, drinks, and club cover fees. Overall though, Suffolk has it's perks. It is literally in the heart of Boston! And the academics are great, especially if you are a Business or Law student. I am in the Arts and Sciences program which is still good, but the Law and Business programs definitely get the most attention.
I finished my freshman year at Suffolk this May and I greatly enjoyed my experience there. The University is very welcoming. Students from all over the world attend the school and the social environment is great. The dorms are quite good compared to other universities in the area. Most professors are good and have a great attitude. Getting good grades isn't too hard as long as you keep up with the assignments and attend classes. The location is probably one of the university's greatest features. It's right in the heart of Boston where everything a college student might need is within walking distance! The worst thing about the school is probably the food on campus but keep in mind that this matter is very subjective and many people actually enjoy it. Overall it's a great school and I highly recommend it for anyone who is considering applying/enrolling!
