Your experience at UMD is very much dependent on you; your major, attitude, abilities, etc. The Psychology department is poorly organized making it seemingly impossible to fit in all requirements, but there are a few diamond in the rough professors that make it worth it! Greek life here is completely different from any notion you may have. Very welcoming, strong, supportive community. Get involved - it's really what you make it!

The University of Massachusetts Dartmouth , is an amazing school. The campus is huge and it has an amazing scenery, the campus is fully equipped with hundreds of learning materials for different majors, qualified staff who are constantly willing to help you out with any difficulty, and free transportation services within and off-campus.
Admission is quite easy, and the school has an acceptance rate of 71% which is quite fair in my opinion.
I have only been attending UMassD for a few months as a freshman, but I honestly feel like it is the right place for me and I would recommend this to anyone looking to attend college.
Also, UMassD provides sporting activities and entertainment on a regular basis, there is a whole section specifically designed for sports and athletics, and the campus holds concerts in the auditorium, and parties in the recreational centres for students to enjoy.
