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.

I'm currently enrolled in UMass Lowell's online continuing education program. Without a doubt, the professors are some of the best I've worked with in my whole college career. They're so enthusiastic about the material, and will jump to your aid any time you feel that you may need some assistance. It's a great opportunity to connect with students in a similar profession from all over. You work with a diverse group of people from all backgrounds with varying experiences that have a lot to offer, especially in the Criminal Justice field. UMass Lowell has made getting your education incredibly convenient with this online program, but has even gone one step further by opening a new location in Haverhill, MA.
The campus is great! They have a good sports program with a great hockey team. Plenty of activities on the weekend with a good bar scene. I strongly feel for the price I pay for my meal plan which was forced upon me when living on campus the quality of food should be higher. We pay the same amount for a meal plan as UMASS Amherst and they have the #1 found in the country, if UMASS Lowell could improve this it would go a long way.
