Is the stereotype of students at your school accurate?

The stereotype that really haunts the University of Massachusetts Lowell is the idea that it’s a safety school – a place that prospective students choose if they’re unable to get into the school that they initially chose. In some cases that happens to be true, but in my experiences talking with students and listening and learning from them, UMass Lowell has become a second home and an experience that they wouldn’t trade for any other university they could imagine. The educational opportunities and the campus life offer students so much, and the Times of London and US News and World Reports recently ranked the university in the top 200 tier internationally, which basically means one thing: this “safety school” is an internationally renowned, world-class institution that more students are attending now than ever before.
