It's in a great location in Lowell! There's great places to eat around and on campus. The community is very diverse and everyone is pleasant. You won't feel out of place. There's a great amount of things to do in Lowell for music as well as just walking around. The professors are great and are willing to help those who seek help. The school staff is very helpful as well and very knowledgeable. If one person cannot help you, they will find the right person or department that can. The only downside is the construction that's going on right now, but it is to improve some of the older hallways.
Review University of Massachusetts - Lowell
I attend the College of Health Sciences at the University of Massachusetts - Lowell, and I am very impressed with the caliber of instructors here. They are all tops in their chosen field, and most have been out there in the field, doing the work, and have come to UML to share their knowledge with the students. They genuinely care if you learn, and go above and beyond to help you understand the information you are learning, and how that translates into real world application. They have a diverse campus with a vibrant student life, and have Division 1 sports teams, including one of the best hockey teams in the country. You can't beat UML!
As a current student who grew up living around the University of Massachusetts- Lowell, I have seen UML change for the better. Growing up if someone told me that they were going to UML my first thought would be that they probably didn't care much about their education. Although, this thought changed. When I first started to go to UML I was very intimidated by how large the campuses were and how many students were there. You never see the same face twice and you see people from different ethnic backgrounds- it's refreshing! As a person who graduated high school with four African Americans, seeing the diversity on campus is a relief. Because I am a commuter I do not eat the campus food or live on campus, so I cannot give a fair judgment on the food. It's tough to make friends if you don't live on campus or if you are shy. It's easy to get lost in the crowd.
