I am currently a freshman at Suffolk and it has not been the good experience I had hoped for. First of all, living in the heart of Boston has been amazing. Living here has been the best part of going to Suffolk. My main problem with Suffolk is my experience with campus staff and residence life. I do not recommend living in the dorms if you can commute or rent elsewhere. The staff in residence life are horrible. I had the job of an office assistant in this office for my first semester and the behavior of the staff is appalling. Whenever a student would come in or call with a serious question or concern, staff would gt irritated and gossip with each other about the student. I was not treated well as an employee either. The woman at the main desk is rude, arrogant, and treated me very poorly. She also made several insensitive comments to the other staff members about parents and their children. When I decided to commute for the second semester to save money (housing is so expensive), it was a pain to get out of the contract. I needed to write a one page paper discussing my reason for moving out, then meet with several staff members and basically got grilled with questions that I felt like they didn't need answers to. Overall, it has not been a good living experience at Suffolk. I can't, however, complain about the classes yet. My professor have been fine and classes have so far been good. Another bad thing to consider is the food is terrible. Barely any options and it rarely changes day to day. They also only use paper plates and plastic cutlery which I find super wasteful. It is not a traditional college dining hall to say the least.

I went to suffolk for a year and a half before transferring. I like it for the first 2 months then it got old..quick. No school spirit and no college campus. Its just an awful place to go if you are looking for the good old college experience. For example doing activities such as going to sporting events (for your school not the city of boston), tailgating, joining a frat or sorority, having mixers, and many more things that the typical college experience includes. None of those things are available at suffolk. There is no campus and you're whole college is based out of 4 buildings. It is an absolute joke. Highly recommend going somewhere else.

I hate my life because of Suffolk University. I commute from a suburb outside Boston, which is good and bad. It's good because I don't have to live on campus and pay 15k a year for a crappy dorm on a campus that has an essence of misery and coldness. People don't smile much here. There's always a crowd of foreign students chain smoking outside the business school, looking unapproachable and wearing Louis Vuitton everything. If you are a girl, forget dating. Most of the guys are full of themselves and just want to get drunk on the weekends. Your only chance of a relationship is to date someone who does not go to Suffolk. Academically, it is good and most people do get jobs after graduation in their fields very easily if they survive the years of drudgery. The T(public transit) is really gross and during rush hour it is crowded and sweaty. If you don't like trees or flowers or nature, this is the place for you because you will be surrounded by concrete. Besides that, if you study Applied Legal Studies, you have access to the law library which is really nice. Otherwise, its isolating and many people will say the same thing.
