Most Helpful Review for University of Massachusetts-Lowell

UMass Lowell won't just teach you about writing, math, and science- it takes you beyond to learn about yourself. One must learn to manage time well with so many campus activities. The school also has a great amount of diversity, which helps students to learn about many other people and cultures. Learning in the classroom is great as well. The small class sizes are highly beneficial.

    I had a bad experience touring this school. As a senior dedicating much of my time into finding the right school for me, it was almost insulting. The maintenance staff does not do their job well (cobwebs everywhere, spills, sediment dripping in tunnels, etc), the underground tunnels do not sound safe, and our tour guide made it sound like a total party school; it's just not the one for me.

    An increasingly more respected institution in Massachusetts. New state of the art facilities are being built all over campus. Many programs are second to none.

    UMass Lowell has everything a student will need to succeed, and even have a little fun. They want you to excel and will provide any and all assistance necessary to help you when you need it. It is a well rounded campus and student body among all elements: social life, academics, and athletics.

    UMass Lowell was subpar. I didn't like the city it is in. There wasn't anything that I saw on my tour that made it stand out as a safe, welcoming or academically rigorous school.

    It is a very large campus with opportunities for all. Your major is usually set up with your classes all on one campus. There are great sporting events.

    The school has an outstanding reputation for having very intelligent graduates. I Feel the school does not produce them though. You either come here and make it through by being very smart already, or a very fast learner with the ability to get the required knowledge from outside sources.

    Overall, this is a good school for academic purposes and the community is great. The only down side is that the administrative services are not as helpful or easy-to-navigate as they claim to be. It can be extremely confusing and most people point you in different directions.

    Although UMass Lowell is a campus on the rise they forget to make their current students happy. The staff at most offices is rude, impersonal, and terrible at communicating with the students. The staff takes away from the overall enjoyment of the university.
