Massachusetts Bay Community College is a great place to learn. The staff is responsive and the academic advisors are available and helpful when meeting with them. The website is easily navigable to find the information I needed for the Nursing program and figuring out all of the admissions requirements.

MassBay is a great Community College that has all the resources I need. The students are friendly, the professors are always available and the atmosphere all together is great. I look forward to going to school. I'm from Texas and I came to MassBay and I really like being here more than other community colleges I've visited.

Jacqueline

After high school, I was pretty burnt out, and planned on taking a gap year to work at a daycare full-time, which I did. My employer recommended I take a Child Development course to become teacher qualified, so I enrolled at MassBay and fell in love with my professor, classmates, and curriculum. When that first semester ended, I immediately knew that MassBay would be the perfect place for me to continue my education, and I ended my gap year with no regrets or hesitation. I enrolled as a full-time student in the spring, and haven't looked back. I look forward to all my classes (even the 8 AM's!) and I've never felt this confident about myself, my abilities, and my future. MassBay may be a community college, but it works tirelessly to shatter the stigma that community colleges are inferior. I am receiving a quality education for an unbelievable price, and I'm making life-changing friendships and connections with both teachers and students. MassBay is paving the way for a future that I look forward to, and I cannot thank them enough!

Sofia

It's a great school overall, I loved my professors and I met alot of great friends. I would definitely reccomend this college to a friend/family member as it not only saves you money, but gives you a good amount of opportunities to participate in things that 4 year colleges offer as well.
