Beautiful environment, very conducive to learning. Great professors awesome staff and tons of resources for Graduate students. Adapted very well to the changes during COVID. Located in a great area, where there is a sense of calm and not too far away from Boston if you enjoy a bit of hustle and bustle.
Pretty decent college. You need to study and put in the work for the general business courses. Most other first year courses are fairly easy. There are resources to help you if you are struggling. You can always email teachers for appointments, don't be shy!
I've had an awesome time and made a lot of great friends.
Bentley is the best place on earth... for the right student. The students are ambitious and passionate about business. My favorite part about Bentley is that students live on campus all four years. It creates an incredible sense of community and keeps you close to your friends! It also ensures that the campus is always active and there are things to do!

I have gotten an great education so far and the opportunity to discover more about myself and what i want to do with my life.
Career placement, because our career center is connected with many businesses in the area and in Boston.
The career services at Bentley is ranked high nationally. I have no doubt that I will receieve excellent job placement upon graduation. I recently went in to get my resume checked out and the woman I met with was very helpful and gave me tips that went beyond my resume.
I wish i had known more of my class mates, been friends with a few people before i arrived.
The worst thing about my school is the repetiveness of the food choices in the dining hall. While the food is very good compared to many other schools, they don't really change it up at all. Here and there we will have a new choice of food to eat, but for the most part it is extremely repetivie. It is very easy to get sick of the food very quickly.
My school is best known for business and job placement after you graduate.
There are a few types of people that I would not recommend Bentley University to. One such group is students that do not know what they want to do with their career. These people would not fit in well because this is a business first school, and almost everyone knows what they want to major in from the time they step on campus. There is a limited amount of non-business majors, and they may end up wasting their money if they decide that they don't want to do business.
Driven by the want to succeed
A dedicated, and excited student who is ready to learn and make lifelong friendships. Being a business school, Bentley is very career focused and becomes very specialized in your major, so it's important to be open minded and dedicated to all of your courses.
The classes are small so it's comfortable.
Lack of arts-based activities and electives.
Classes are an hour and fifteen, insightful teachers
Lots of emails from the social groups, its a very involved community
Business school that tends to favor financial sector and accounting, they have good ties with the big four
Lots of foreign kids, everyone is rich, everyone is only concerned with making money, etc.
The stereotype, from an outside perspective is that Bentley is full of international students (asian and indian) and that bentley is a good school. Within the school there are many different segments of students that can be put into categories. There are the athletes, decent portion but nothing substantial to the whole population of Bentley. The following groups tend to segment themselves from the rest of the school: football, hockey, and soccer. The soccer kids are not terrible, the hockey kids dont hang out or converse with anyone but the kids on their team and the other athletes, the baseball kids will converse with the football kids and most other people if you approach them or interact with them. The football kids are the biggest team on bentley and thus associate with moslty/only other football kids. There is a small/decent size fraternity population at Bentley. Their parties are mostly filled with younger years (freshman and sophmore). Foreign students associate primarily with each other: Spain with Spain, Indian with Indian, South America with South America. I have had many interactions with these groups of students only because I have had many jobs on campus where they work and my roomate is very social with them. Bentley has a decent marijuana afficianado crowd and it is slowly growing in numbers, especially with the recent incoming freshman class and in fraternity life. Everyone at Bentley (99%) is dedicated to completing school work and securing a job by their junior year. Bentley drives this into their students I have plenty more about the different stereotypes and clicks at Bentley but I have taken up enough of your time on this questions
