The University of Massachusetts-Boston is a public research institution and part of the University of Massachusetts System. The Asian American and Native American Pacific Islander-serving institution is part of the Greater Boston Urban Education Collaborative. The Princeton Review lists the school among their “Best Northeastern” colleges list. UMass Boston is partners with IBM, Sanofi, Genzyme, and the Dana-Farber/Harvard Cancer Center as part of its research initiative.
The school is great for those who rather commute or live off campus because there are no dorms but it is in the city and accessible by the T. The professors are helpful when you need them, there is always an event going on so you will never be bored, and it is extremely diverse. Faculty and students make this University one big community.
I love the the history that surrounds the University. This is an amazing place to get an education. I feel like a student and not a number here.
