Will learn a lot
If all goes according to plan I will learn a lot since I am older and returning to college after a 16 year laps. This time I am more focused and determined to accomplish all my goals at MassBay!
Will enjoy being here
Definately
Bang for the buck
I feel this community college will be a great investment. I feel that I will receive the best education. The college has very tough standards and if one studies hard and does they will benefit greatly.
Tips for prospective students
Have all your paperwork in order prior to meeting your advisor(s) so you do not waste their valuable time. When you are not prepared you will have to repeat trips to the college and that wastes not only your valuable time and gas but now you are taking up time that could be useful to another student who needs their help.
Great for these types of students
Anyone who is focused and ready to take on the challenges that lie ahead in their field of choice.

In three sentences
Massbay is a really good school to attend. The teachers are all passionate about their work and try there best to help their students learn to there full abilities. I definitely recommended this school for a great education.
Tips for prospective students
There are wonderful resources to use at this school. It is open late, and teachers are willing to stay past hours to help there students out. It is a fun school that knows how to create a fun but still academic school.
Academic Rigor
They offer many academics to there students. They are all at there own level of challengers. I personally love the online classes. They are more compatible with my daily schedule.
Dorm Life
There is no dorm life, you commute.
Food and Dining
The food is no restaurant or five star dining room but it is still delicious and fulling.
What to do for fun
There are so many clubs and things to do, such as yoga, belly dancing, basketball.
Great for these types of students
Anyone who has financial problems, or cant pay for a dorm can afford this school. People who loves small classroom sizes as well.
Clubs and Activities
So many clubs its hard to keep up with them all. Whats even more wonderful is that you can create your own club or organization by yourself.
Campus Safety
The campus police are very nice. They helped me break off my lock on my locker because i lost my keys to the lock.

Did learn a lot
This is one of those schools where you get out of it exactly what you put in. If you do your work, you will learn, but teachers will let you fail if you don't ask for their help when you're having trouble.
Did enjoy being here
As a commuter school, you choose whether or not to have any on-campus social life.
Bang for the buck
These are the same professors as the ivy league schools with the same curriculum and the same books, for a tiny fraction of the price.
Tips for prospective students
If you're not serious about your education, don't waste your money. Keep your focus, do your work and you won't regret a moment. Also, schedule your classes online and avoid the advisor rush.
Great for these types of students
Returning students and those who have other priorities, this school is great in terms of their flexible scheduling and teachers sill work with you when approached. The key is communication.
