It is a good school in the sense of affordability and academics. The campus culture is very lively and there are lots of sports events to attend. The classes are a reasonable length and the professors use their time wisely for the most part. Overall, it’s a good school.
The University of Massachusetts-Lowell provides a wealth of knowledge for its students. There are numerous academic programs available and the professors are amazing. I have yet to have a bad experience with a professor. Some can be slow at grading at times, however, they have a lot on their academic plates. They even offer both on-campus and online degrees, with hybrid options as well. They offer bachelor-to-masters pathways that are tempting to explore.
The University of Massachusetts-Lowell is an incredible school. When I was younger, I grew up in southern New Hampshire; Merrimack to be exact. I only heard of bad things about Lowell and the school there. People do say "you can't always believe what you hear". This is so true. I was in absolute awe when I toured UMass Lowell a year ago. The facilities are impeccable, the social areas for students are fantastic, the academics and sports teams are phenomenal. I hope so incredibly bad I get accepted into your Exercise Science Program.

When in college one shoild start being serious about education. Apply for as mant scholarships as he/she can to help with college funds.
A boring class can be interesting when you have awesome classmates.
U-Mass has several campuses, and a great online program. I currently reside in New Jersey, so the online classes are the obvious choice for me. They make the whole process of registration, obtaining books, and attending class very easy.
If you are looking for an enclosed college experience shielded from the real world this is not the place for you. The weekends are dead largely because most kids have jobs elsewhere and are supporting their own education. Boston is really close and has a lot of opportunities for cultural exposure but you have to be willing to go to the source, it won't come to you.

Administration is very disorganized. I am fortunate to have gotten to know a lot of people in my department and in financial aid through my job, and while they all mean very well the overall infrastructure is very poor and confusing.
I am transferring there for Spring 2010, so I am not too sure how to describe my school.
I had a really good knowledge of student life and academic prospects before I attended this school. I think Umass Lowell is under-rated in quality, if I had known how good their programs were I wouldn't have been so reluctant to attend. Advice: Don't be fooled by the horrible city life surrounding the campus.
Since UMass Lowell was originally an engineering school, the stereotypical student is an engineering major. However, UMass Lowell has a wide variety of students, from geeks to hippies, each unique in their own ways.
Academics are taken very seriously at Umass Lowell. All the professors already have their doctorates so you rarely get stuck with just a T.A. The professors are very accessible and great teachers. The class sizes are also kept small especially the honors classes which are limited to 20 students a class. This is done so that students who are devoted to learning are ensured plenty of time from the professor. There are academic clubs for almost every major which helps foster learning between students. Umass Lowell also offers Living Learning Communities where students of the same major can live together to promote learning in groups and improve grades.
I have visited many schools both before and during my time at Umass Lowell and I can safely say that I am extremely glad I came here. While I have been to some schools I liked better, there have been none that are as affordable, I might not get the absolute best but I do get a fantastic college experience with out having to take out loans. One great thing about this school is that if something is bad, it won't be long until it is fixed. The current biggest complaint is that the dining halls are not good enough. The administration is highly dedicated to providing the best they can for the students and since hearing these complaints have decided to completely renovate the dining hall.
The most frustrating things about the University of Massachusetts Lowell is the transportation system. Being in a crowded, urban atmosphere, often the buses or shuttles have to detour in order to safely transport students from one location to another. There are many unstable bridges in the city of Lowell that the weight of the buses can not support, so in result, by "back trailing" often students find themselves late to class. Aside from this frustration, UMass Lowell is a great school.
Its fun! We have a huge recreation center, which as basketball and racketball courts, gym, pool and ping pong table. We get to do some labs in chemistry.
One of the most popular events on campus is watching the hockey team. Umass Lowell purchased the Tsongas Center from the city of Lowell and it is now the home rink of our D1 Hockey team. Tickets are free to students so attendance is high, and school spirit is even higher. Concerts are also often held at the Tsongas center of big name artists.
Classes at UML are becoming better and better every year. Currently, UML is trying to limit class sizes in order to better help students understand the material and be able to have a more one-on-one experience. Class difficulty can vary quite a bit depending on choice of major. UML is known for their exceptional engineering college, but with top quality education comes hard work. Personally, I find my business courses to be the perfect level of difficulty, while I can still maintain an active social life. Professors tend to be very nice and helpful throughout campus. The only classes I would try and avoid are big 200 student lecture halls. These classes are slow and it is difficult to learn the material, but like I said, UML is slowly phasing out this set up.
The food on campus is great. Theres multiple dining halls on each campus. There's also ones open late-night so when you're out with your friends and come in late on the weekends, you can still get a bite to eat. We have a Subway and Starbucks on South Campus, among many other food options. Additionally, the good thing about UMASS Lowell is that there are so many things around it. There's an abundance of restaurants and other dining options around the campus. For examples, Suppas on North Campus is where everyone goes on the weekends because they have great pizza! Theres also a Dunks across the street from North Campus. The options are endless!!
I wanted to stay close to home and this was cheaper than every school located near me. The campus was nice, and I knew I would be getting a great education for a lower price than most schoools.
A day on campus that I will never forget has to be the Mr. UML pageant. It's a mock beauty pageant for boys who compete for the crown. For the talent competition, some were serious and sang a song or recited a poem. Others were funny and danced. The questions were funny and resulted in rap battles and voting on the best pick up line. Also, during the intermission, they had a raffle and my friend won a flat screen TV.
