What Students Are Saying

3.60 Average Rating
Get to know your professors and take adavsntage of the libraries and other resources. Study hard.
Isabella from Milford, MA
Work hard and you will be rewarded. There is a light at the end of the tunnel. Choose a program that will help you get a job.
Justin from Arlington, MA
I highly recommend this school. If you are serious about getting a good education, a good college experience and not come out hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt, then this is the school for you.
Kyle from Marlborough, MA
This goes for any college, but the best piece of advice is, you get out what you put in, and there are no diminishing returns. Also, if you're an engineering major, don't go to the library to print stuff, they charge you like 10 cents a copy. Go to the engineering computer Labs where its free.

When the time comes to take Tech Electives, talk to your advisers and take graduate level classes as tech electives. It will count for both your undergraduate, and graduate degrees, saving you time and money.
Ross from Merrimack, NH
All one must do is work hard to succeed. Manage your time well. Class time is limited, so be ready to do a good deal of work on your own. You will appreciate the independence.
Jessica from Bradford, MA
A state school with great rating!!! You really can't go wrong with this school. Make sure you get a tour of the dept. your interested in. If you go see Computer Science, you will be blown away!
Jonathan from Topsfield, MA
It is fabulous because of its small classes. My largest class has 42 students. My smallest has 16! The professors want you to succeed. They all offer convenient office hours and will do whatever is necessary to help you get a good grade.
Surprisingly Happy Student
Always take the class you find interesting, because when you like a class, it makes it that much easier to do well.
Try not to choose classes based on the professor, because many times, classes move around and the professors can change. When that happens, you may be out of luck.
Make sure you leave time for fun and for yourself. Take the classes you need to take, maybe even one extra if you want to, but don't overload yourself.
Allison from Franklin, MA
Commuting may be easier for some students, but I would absolutely recommend living on campus. Allowing yourself to be surrounded by other students who have the same major as you or have similarities with you is much less stressful. I would recommend getting involved with any extra-curricular activities you can. Being involved in the school community helps establish a sense of belonging and importance in your lives.
