I believe the campus housing is overpriced. There are many more affordable living options off campus that many upperclassmen and graduate students take advantage of. However, free housing is a possibility if you receive the resident assistant (RA) job. Definitely take advantage of that if you can!
Review University of Massachusetts - Dartmouth
Even though Umass Dartmouth is considered one of the ugliest campus's in the United States I would not go back on my decision to go here. I came from an upper-middle class town with basically no diversity, and when I came here I was pleasantly surprised. There were people of all races and cultures that I could meet and be friends with! The education here is up to par with its sister schools. I feel challenged in most classes and I love it. I also love the school because I have met so many bonafide individuals that come from all parts of Massachusetts.
I feel that I'm not receiving the best education that I can if I were at another more recognized school for my specific major. The spotlight for this school is really it's nursing and biology majors. That's were most of the renovations are being made in terms of classroom additions. However, for my specific major and college (College of Engineering), I'm not receiving or seeing the same renovations. It's upsetting but I am too far along in this school to transfer to a different location. I rather finish here and continue into graduate school at a more prestige and nationally recognized school specifically in the engineering field.
