What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Massachusetts-Lowell has a very nice vibe throughout the whole campus. There is always something to do at the University with the number of organizations and clubs. The campus is also safe and everyone seems to be very nice. Anyone can make the best out of it if they get involved.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a pretty average university. The meals could be much better for the cost of the meal plan, and I wish it weren't required to have a meal plan when living in certain residence halls because we try to avoid the dining hall as much as possible anyway. The class sizes are hard to rate because they vary greatly in size. Some are around 20-30 people and others have over 100. Additionally, hockey is a big deal so other sports aren't given as much overarching attention.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love my school and continuously advocate for students to come and check it out. This was the school that I felt most at home at. I never doubt for a second that i made the wrong decision to attend this school. The school is large but you get to know people by joining activities. It is a very friendly and welcoming environment!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have no idea what the classes of the college are like, I am only leaving this comment on the behalf of a friend of mine. He signed up for a course to take online at the university, but he dropped it. Despite that, without any notification of such, he got a call from a debt-collecting company. Yes, the college called him to collect a 70 dollar debt for course registration they didn't notify him about, and even though he dropped the course, they still charged him for just attempting to register for it before the class even took place. So, in this college's mind, it's okay to charge students for just attempting to register, even if it is full, is cancelled, or the student changes their mind before the course even takes place. Then afterwards, instead of trying to notify through phone call, they send a DEBT-COLLECTING COMPANY after you for "dodging payment" even though this unseen, unheard of, unwritten rule for payment was unknowingly enforced on someone who didn't even wind up taking the course at all. What in the heck is that? That is not a college's honest policy, that is the policy of a company looking for money with under-handed tactics.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have found that the University of Massachusetts here in Lowell, is one that takes itself and carries a lot of pride being part here in the Lowell community. The classes that I have taken have been very well put together and follow strong syllabi. The campus is very nice and aesthetically pleasing, especially our prided South Campus. The sports games are fantastic and full of Riverhawk pride. The people are great. You can't really find somewhere this nice all the time for what it takes to come here.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Teachers rely too much on pre-made computer activities. Teachers either test too hard or their tests are ridiculously easy. The gym is great and easy to access and use. Food is sub-par, and repeats happens far too often. One time, there was the same dish for lunch and dinner.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a great school. It was not my first choice, but the longer I am there the more I like it. The dorms are all new and re-done, although the food is not the best but there is plenty of it. The hockey team is great, and going to the games is fun. A very diverse and fun student body.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a great school. Well known for its engineering departments but the others are just as great. The campus life is really good. There are lots a places to eat and hangout. The art scene is good too. The only down side to the school is the current remodeling of two of the halls on its North campus. Other than that, I really love this school!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

As a student who has attended another UMASS school, and a community college, UMASS Lowell seems to be the best overall. The administration for when i was applying and registering was actually pretty great; as hassle free as realistically could be. The program i am in for graphic design seems to also be great. I know a few people who have gone through the program here, and they all recommend it and have only great things to say about the program and the staff. The campus i am on is also the best ive been on for a state university. It's very clean, modern, technologically up to date, and has a wide array of resources from tutoring, academic advising, free equipment to be used by people in my current program, and the food is also really good. What needs improvement? i think the financial aid center, also known as "The Solution Center", both online and offline could benefit from some refinement. Online, things can be a bit confusing when finding about your bill and what you have for loans/grants, ect. but other than that, i haven't noticed much to be bad about this university.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Umass Lowell is a fantastic school, with amazing facilities and great academics. It is so easy for students to get involved in extra curriculum activities, because there is such a wide variety tailoring to any student. One downfall is the Solution Center, in my experience not everyone who works there is on the same page and can give misleading information.
