University of Massachusetts - Boston Reviews
Review University of Massachusetts - Boston
UMB follows the paradigm, "university is what you make it." The academic level here varies greatly. Many of the students accepted here have a weaker academic background. This noticeably translates into classroom engagement. It can be frustrating to witness the lack of preparation and care for classwork that is common in the lower-level classes. This can make the university feel like high-school. Despite this, there are many incredible professors and students here. You will be able to find your "tribe" if you pay attention. If you're looking for more of an academic challenge, the Honors College is a wonderful opportunity and resource to help motivate you and put you in contact with like-minded students. You can skirt by at this university with minimal effort and graduate, but if you really want to learn, the education can be equivocal to many of the other more prestigious universities in Boston; it all comes down to how you apply yourself here.
My experience was pretty amazing because there is a wide diversity here so I got to explore different cultures. I absolutely love the ocean view I get to see everyday. It reminds me of how beautiful Earth is and it is not worth wasting time on electronics, instead go out and explore! The only thing I would change is I would have dorms to make accommodation easier for students.
Although I am only a freshman at UMB, my experience by far, is incredible. UMB provides many opportunities for students to excel in their education. This ranges from one-on-one subject tutoring to small class sizes so that student-professor relationships are close. Professors will help you in your struggles in the class and will do everything in their power to get you to understand the subject. I am looking forward to an awesome next 4 years at UMB as I learn more about the school and participate in the different opportunities that UMB has to offer.
