University of Massachusetts-Dartmouth Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (13)
The MLS program at UMD greatly prepares and educates potential hospital lab employees. Because of the didactic instruction, many graduates pursue advanced degrees with the knowledge they've obtained through their undergraduate career. The science background obtained from this degree will help any future scientist or medical professional by providing a concrete understanding of the pathophysiology of the human body and current testing methods used to treat and diagnose various disease states.
The University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth, offered me a world-class education at an affordable price. I had the opportunity to work with professors who were alumni of prestigious Ivy League schools from a variety of backgrounds, and learn alongside my classmates who hailed from a variety of diverse backgrounds. I built meaningful relationships as a result of attending this school and garnered a wonderful education that has now lended me the opportunity to pursue my graduate degree at Boston University. I'm greatly indebted to my alma mater.
Umass Dartmouth was a safety school out of all the schools that I originally applied for. Coming from a low income family, college was very important to us as a family. So choosing the school was based off of affordability and closeness to home. My 4 years of college at Umass Dartmouth ended up great. The professors really were into the major and teaching all the information they know to pass along to us. The student life was very lively and diverse. I was involved with as many groups as possible because not only do you get to meet alot of people but you learn important leadership skills that are useful later on. The only thing I wish the school would work on is the career advising. Students often have to take the initiative to see someone for help. So make sure when you're in your last year 2 years of school, talk to as many people as you can at the school to obtain career opportunities.
University of Massachusetts is a state school and very affordable. As an immigrant, student diversity was a good thing that I experienced. There are students from all over the globe. The location of the school is also great. North Dartmouth is a quiet and friendly city.
UMD was a wonderful school for what I wanted to get out of it. Professors ranged from highly engaging, knowledgeable and enlightening to lackluster and arrogant. Though I thoroughly enjoyed my college experience and learned a great deal in the realm of world literature, professional writing and film technique, so much of what made my experience wonderful was study sessions with friends I made during my four years and my involvement with the theater company. The outside-the-classroom experience is what I gained the most from and carry with me to this day. UMD is not for everyone, but remember that the college experience is very much what you, yourself, make of it.
My years at UMass were some of the best of my life. When I started my freshman year I didn't know exactly what I wanted to do, but quickly because involved in the theater company which helped focus me on what kind of education I wanted to have while I was there. The English department was full of fun, interesting and smart professors who helped expand my vision and knowledge of the major I had chosen.
UMass Dartmouth was an excellent University. Classes were small which allowed me direct guidance from my professors. The campus and buildings are constructed within a circular design so that you daily connect with fellow students from all majors, widening your pool of social interactions. Along with engaging curriculum and supportive faculty, there were excellent job opportunities on campus. These jobs often extended into the summer allowing me to live on campus year round and focus on the responsibilities I would undertake after graduation. The education I received gave me the courage to move across the country 3 weeks after receiving my diploma. I highly recommend this university and encourage a visit to the campus.
Umass Dartmouth isn't for everyone, but for everyone looking for a good college experience as well as a great institution that will give you a great hands on experience for whatever career path you choose, this is a great choice. The school has a lot of resource centers dedicated to student development as well as career centers. The instructors are down to earth and are willing to meet with you one on one anytime upon request. But like any other college, what you put in, is what you get out. It is good and well advised to get out of your comfort zone and interact with others. In the business world, networking is key, and being able to present yourself is an ability we will need to possess. With Umass Dartmouth, there are opportunities that will be given to you to practice such things and develop yourself. So this school is definitely worth looking into. I recommend it.
UMass Dartmouth had a very small art history program with many passionate and devoted professors. All of my professors were entirely willing to dedicate their time to help me. Dartmouth offered a lot of scholarships and made my education affordable.
I could connect, talk with, and develop meaningful relationships with all of the political science faculty. Once you go through the customary phase of hating all the concrete you look up and are amazed by how light it seems.
