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 very good school with friendly classmates and faculties. Some professors are nice, some are not. Some Classrooms are small and hot. If you have a huge class like Biology, or Chemistry, you might get distractions really fast by others students around and the professor can’t pay much attention to each students during lectures. Overall, UMass Boston is not that bad and has a good environment for you to learn. Hopefully the school has more food courts inthe future and more internships for students.
