What Students Are Saying

3.53 Average Rating
Although most of the UMass Dartmouth's instructor team is made up of great teachers, I would recommend thoroughly looking for the right teachers. Not really look for an easy A, because than you don't learn anything. But you don't want a very difficult teacher where you don't learn anything either. For example, my friends and I attend different Engineering classes. I know just as much as they do, and learn the same material, but I have a much more fair professor.

Take your time before just going right into college right from high school. Figure out what you really want to learn, and a career you want to pursue in life that will make you HAPPY! Not just pay the bills, because if your going to be pursuing a degree just to pursue the cash flow, there is a high probability that you won't finish. So just take your time, focus, and make the right decision.

* Robin Burr (Psychology 101); shes a sweet older woman with a very low voice. Sit in the front and you should be alright. she accepts late work at full credit and attendence is extra credit. she gives you a study guide with everything that will be on the test including the essay.
*Alan Thompson (Arts&Crafts): a very useless class if its not youre major but you learn a lot either way. He gives one quiz, a midterm, and a final. Hes very funny and likes class discussions. And dont worry he gives study guides.
*William Riley (Music 101); one of the few teachers that you can actually tell that he loves his job. he give out easy notes, plays a lot of music that kills time and a lot of in class concerts. i didnt but the book and CD and i still passed the class.
*Robin Kish (English 101): shes very sweet and understanding but there are four papers due in the first semester. you have to peer edit every single one but she lets you pass in the peer edits later. she gives you the option of re-doing two papers for a higher grade.
*??? Marikan (Chem 130): hurry up and take bio 11 if you can. choose this class last minute and got stuck with a very sweet lady with a heavy turkish accents. she goes through the notes very fast because everything is in the book. rarely takes attendence but if youve taken chemistry before and have any common sense you'll pass. I got a 90 and its out of 154 so you cant get anything wrong.

Meet as many people as you can as soon as you can! Spend as much time outside as possible! I did my first month and now I know someone every where I go! Join! Join different clubs and organizations to have fun and meet even more people! There is a club here for every one.

Look for scholarships if possable. Price might be an issue for some people but if you're dreaming of a certain college, don't let that get in the way. college is a once in a life time oppertunity.
Also, do your research. Some people don't, and they sound stupid posting unresearched stuff.
