University of Massachusetts - Lowell Reviews

Great engineering school with professors who want to see the students be successful. Great dining food at Fox Hall. All engineering classes are in Ball hall so I didn't need to go to different campuses. The return investment was great since I found a job at the even during the COVID. The housing options weren't cheap enough for students and the local areas had a lot of drug addicts. I didn't join any clubs, but I heard people had a great experience in their clubs. If you go to the school website there is no recognition or acknowledgment of any of the graduates from this year from the little ones or grades Kor 8. They did nothing special for any students. Many Schools went out of their way for their students to make the memories they were missing due to this tragic pandemic special. This administration did nothing but the bare minimum. So sad that families paid for this treatment. They did not check on families. Only emails the administration sent were from the Archdiocese.

I cannot speak for all of mass lowell, but I have very mixed feelings about the public health graduate program. First of all they are not accredited yet. Second it is very built towards the students who started their undergrad there and are doing an accelerated track. Third they are all over the place, and many different people will have different answers to the same questions, which has made my time here difficult because I have been told to make choices that have hurt me later on, especially when it comes to scheduling and picking classes. The classes are small and are not offered every semester so it has been difficult to make everything work. But for the most part almost all of my professors have been wonderful and want to see their students succeed and will do their best to help you. I cannot speak too much on other aspects of the school such as social life, I do not know many people as I did not go here and I commute, so I basically just go to class and go home.
