University of Massachusetts - Boston Reviews
UMass Boston is an awesome college! Great professors who want to help students learn new material and graduate. Fun activities to join such as groups to perform volunteer work, sports, school newspaper, and student government. Lot of new buildings are being built to expand the school. New buildings that are now open are real nice and up to date. Not a party school. Must students there work while attending classes.
University of Massachusetts at Boston is an excellent choice if are a matriculated student that does not mind commuting. Their new science buildings, campus center, and lecture hall buildings are excellent and beautiful. The professors are all very kind, intelligent, and knowledgable. This is the cheapest university in the greater Boston area, with the best education around. They are a Research School, with graduate programs. The campus offers sweeping views of the harbor. That being said, there is significant construction being down on the campus that won't be done for a few summers. This is primarily a commuter school, so there is no community feeling. If you are looking for new friends, lots of social groups, and college pride - you won't find it here. If you are looking for a great education at a great price, with intelligent people and helpful professors - this is the place to be.
UMass Boston is a diverse community treasured with what I believe to have the most hidden talented students in the of any University. With students from all around the world, our education is enhanced when we must work with others who do not have english as their primary language in subjects very difficult for an average person to comprehend. Being a Umass Boston student had taught me to struggle and succeed through adversity, especially through the financial struggles of the school and the difficulties most students struggle with daily.
