"This school gave me all the resources I needed to succeed and left me the option to cease that opportunity or to let it pass me by. My school has shaped me into who I am"

"The counselors at the school are very informative and will do their best to help you succeed. However as of recently it seems there are major parking issues and increases in fees that students are having a hard time seeing where their financial offerings are going"

"UMass has an amazing culture that is not replicated at many schools. The interactions you have with professors & other students makes you eager to learn more. The dining halls have superb food and a great variation every day. The town itself is gorgeous and has tons of little niche stores where you can find unique items. The location is perfect - there are buses directly to Boston, only an hour and a half away, you can visit New York City for the weekend, or head to Vermont or CT easily."

"I had a very positive experience at UMASS. I was also part of the Commonwealth Honors College, which I would recommend as well. Even though the classes are on the larger side in the Communication Disorders department, I was able to make valuable connections with professors."
