University of Massachusetts Boston Reviews
There are a range of courses offered, so you can try a lot of different things and maybe even discover more about yourself! I always knew I was interested in cinema, for example, but I am taking Cinema 101 at the moment and it made me consider minoring in the subject. I really recommend taking a variety of classes!
The campus is pretty small, so it's hard to get lost (even for someone like me, who is really bad with directions). It's also really pretty, it has an ocean view and there's so many cute squirrels and rabbits running around! It can get pretty cold, though, due to the aforementioned ocean being right next to the university.
The university also prides itself in being one of the most diverse in the country, and it's so nice talking to so many people from different walks of life.
The faculty was highly knowledgeable and supportive. They brought a wealth of real-world experience to the classroom, providing practical insights into the nursing profession. They were always available to answer questions and provided valuable guidance and mentorship throughout the program.
Overall, my experience as a Traditional BSN student at UMass Boston was a positive one. It was a demanding program, but it provided me with the skills and knowledge I needed to succeed as a nurse. The combination of academic rigor, practical experience, and a supportive community made it a fulfilling journey.
