University of Massachusetts - Dartmouth Reviews
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!
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!
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.
