WHAT I LIKED

For those who are not blessed financially, UMASS Boston is the cheapest school to go to and you’ll still get a great education. The advisors I worked with were very helpful every step of the way.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The prerequisites make it hard to take the classes you actually need.

WHAT I LIKED

The campus is in a gorgeous location. Some of the buildings are old and still have chalkboards however the new science buildings are beautiful. The professors are decent. Like wherever you go, there are certain professors that aren't great.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Look at the rate of my professor before choosing classes. Some professors shouldn't be teaching.

WHAT I LIKED

The campus is super nice, even if some buildings do feel a bit old. The professor, for the most part, are chill and serious about their job but also understand that students need a break sometimes.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Not much that I didn't like. I would just say how construction around campus seems to be going slow and caused traffic jabs at times.
