Umass-Boston is a fantastic school for all ages. Being that I am an adult student, I do not feel out of place while on campus. It's inclusive and I feel at home. I love the affordability, opportunities for adult students making career changes, and flexibility to work school around my work schedule.
It's a college that teaches you what you need to know and helps make connections with possible people that pertain to your career. I'm an off-campus student, but from what I do hear campus life isn't so bad. And the college has a lot of student support systems to help with everything from financial aid, to emotional aid.
I love the location and the classes are great, but i wish there was a wider range of sports to do and clubs/teams to partake in other than the ones already offered. having a wider variety of sports teams could pull in more students to enroll for instance adding a field hockey team. dance team, and so many other could pull more interest from prospective students.
It's a big enough school where you get washed out by the other people, but you're also seen as important in some ways. The advisors aren't that great if you don't have prior knowledge about them, and often times you're stuck helping yourself and figuring out classes and grades as you go while hoping for the best. The professors are mediocre, with a majority of them not caring about their class or making it too hard--it's hard to find the perfect balance so sometimes you're stuck struggling to find your way out of the ocean yourself and keep your head afloat for as long as you're there.

So far my college experience has not lived up to my expectations when I was first entering. The classes seem at the same level as my high school ones, and a lot of the material I have already learned. But just that has been a rewarding experience in itself, I'm miserable at the school I'm at now, but that has pushed me to search for other options, ones that will make me happy, and give me the rewarding experience I am looking for. I am currently enrolled at the University of Hawaii at Manoa in the Zoology for the Fall of 2010. I am extremely excited to start the next phase of my college career and feel that if not for attending UMass Boston first I would have never been pushed to attend the University of my dreams, in a field that I have always had a passion for.
Umass-Boston is a just a school, nothing remarkable nor bad, just a place to learn if you so choose.
A load of helping hands whenever you need them.
If you want to hold down a steady job while going to school, this is definitely the place for you--there are classes in all subjects offered at all times of the day (and week for that matter, as well). It's better for people who don't want the typical college-frat-dorm life that you see in the movies. It's a much more mature group of students.
Commuter school so no on-campus housing. Very small class sizes despite large undregrad population.
Anyone with a different race or religion is welcomed to attend this school. Since this school is very diverse, every student is treated with respect.
I love a lot of things about this school like the size and the campus. But the location is the best feature. It is located on the waterfront to Boston. The view is amazing from anywhere on campus. We are easily accesible to anywhere in Boston, I think it's ideal for students in my age range.
I consider the food because i feel that they could offer students better food. The prices are also very expensive so sometimes it would be better to just save your money and eat elsewhere.
What I brag about the most when I tell my friends about my school is that it is very big. I also tell them that the school environment is nice and there are many students that go there. It's hard to get around with so many people.
It's tough! You get a lot of work and you have to work really hard in order to get good grades. The teachers are also very committed to their classes and don't allow disrespect. Despite-- or maybe even because of all that, I am always confident when I walk into my classroom that I will learn something and I'm not just wasting my time.
It is a commuter school and so there are many people coming and going, but it is very warm and welcoming to all.
I wish I had known what a great school UMass Boston was before I came here because I would have enrolled here my freshman year year of college as opposed to transferring my junior year.
