Suffolk University Reviews
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.
Suffolk University is what you call one diverse school. It's amazing to see different ethnicities coming together. And it's a plus being in the city, if you want more of the "campus life" then Suffolk isn't your school. But overall the school is wonderful academically!
The academic lifestyle at Suffolk is very unique in a sense that everyone feels involved in their learning. The classrooms are small which enhances that fact that the professors are able to interact more closely with the students and have a better idea of the strengths and weaknesses that students have, rather than just having a big class and giving a lecture. Everyone feels accepted and the level of diversity creates a sense of community between all, which is what makes Suffolk a melting pot of diverse cultures, bringing in everyone together as a community and possibly a family.
