3.17 Average Rating
take the mbta to school.
you can afford to study here!
treat yourself to cafeteria lunch on wednesdays.
Maureen from West Roxbury, MA
Keep up with all the school work, join clubs and different organizations. Do not be afraid to ask for help whether from a fellow classmate, professor, or tutor.
Kristina from Somerville, MA
Boston and surrounding area is wicked expensive. Be prepared. Look for scholarships if need be.
Angelia from Pepperell, MA
This is best school for the prospective students with very good chances of GA's n TA's. the environment here is seriously awesome.
Pradhyun from India
Check out the student housing options at harbor and peninsula. Also, get used to the metro and have fun down town.
Jordan from TEMECULA, CA
DO NOT GO HERE IF YOU ARE GOING TO RENT AN APARTMENT. So many things can go wrong. And you won't get ANY help from the school. Even if they assure you that they will help you, take it from someone who's been there and done that.
Emily
don't take too many courses, no more than 16 credits ever
stay focus, and know when to take a day off
Ryan from Lynn, MA
Enjoy the University and what it offers and the city it is in.
Shelby from Greenfield, OH
Get involved with clubs on campus. It is a great way to meet people because the school is so large. Students may also want to take advantage of their professors' office hours whenever they need extra help or just have a homework question.
LP
Great professors!
