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 or Umass Dartmouth for short, 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 personnel who are constantly willing to help you out when you're stuck, and free transportation services.
Like people always say, "All work and no play makes Jack a dull man" Umass Dartmouth 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 centers for students to enjoy.
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 Umass Dartmouth for a few months, but I honestly feel like it is the right place for me and I would recommend this to anyone looking to attend college.
The school itself is very nice however being a transfer it is a little difficult to find the right niche as it can be very segregated. Most of the people are nice however drugs can be an issue. The party scene isn't what I was hoping for. For some odd reason people here don't like to day drink or really trow down at all for that matter, you will get the occasional gathering but trust me it will be nothing like its big bother Umass Amherst. The living situation in the "dells" is somewhat dirty but having a room to call your own is a plus. As for its academics they can be challenging but only if you seek out those challenging courses, but at the end of the day you get out what you put in.
