| Suffolk U isn't that horrible. It's like a small school for people who really do wish to work and study because there's really no room for partying. The social life is in school with study groups. |
I've had experienced with both business school professors and CAS school professors my freshman year when I was still undecided. Let me inform you that the science professors seem a lot more competent and down to Earth than the business professors. Hence I became a science nerd. Professors in the Chemistry Department are there in the labs or their offices 24/7 if you just want to drop in with your questions and theories.
In general I landed with professors who really take into account effort when they grade. If you show up in their lab or office once in awhile or ask great questions your grade gets bumped up half a grade. Generally, getting an A in the finals guarantees you an A for the semester because you prove to the professor you cared enough to study for their class in the end. Unlike big schools, this small school is flexible and laid back. As long as you get work done it's fine. But if you decide to go to school to party and have fun in a back alley, SU is not for you.

| If you want to have a social life in college, Suffolk is not your school. It is not nearly as diverse as it claims to be, and it has several dorms, (all flawed in one way or another), making it even more separated. Mainly, every day at Suffolk tends to repeat itself and becomes very boring. Including the classwork. |

|Not so bright|
| I did not want to attend Suffolk University, but after taking a gap year off, I was crazy to go into the first school I found; Suffolk was the lucky one, I suppose. That being said, I was surprised of how much I liked it. The faculty cares about you, the school work is challenging, and the location is great. The only negative thing that I can say is that some of the students are arrogant and not very bright. Also, I was disappointed with the "campus" which is composed of a few buildings in Downtown Boston.|
I see there are many comments saying that the fact that there wasn't a campus made it hard to meet people... I've read the reviews of BU, Simmons, and UMass Boston and if you go right now to read them yourselves you'll notice the same comments. This is definitely going to sound like a clichÃ©, but college is what you make it. If you look for friends, you'll find them.
There are ALWAYS going to be negatives and positives. If students are very outgoing and fun, they will gain the reputation of slackers that only want to party. If the students' priority is to study and work, the whole student body doesn't have a school spirit and you won't meet anyone. Go to any review and you'll see for yourself.
If you like the school or if you're unsure, go; you could always transfer.
