Avoid this school at all cost!Quite BrightMechanical Engineering
Avoid this school at all cost!I only attended this school because of the inexpensive cost to attend. I was never fond of the campus, and after attending for 2 years my opinion of this campus has steadily declined. The campus is simply a garbage heap. The faculty (with few exceptions) are unhelpful and unwilling to assist you in any task, that's if: 1. They speak English and/or 2. They are attending work that day. Like many schools UMass Dartmouth plays games with their students on an educational level. The only difference is UMD takes it to a whole new level. Be forewarned that if you do decide to attend this school, you must study something you love because you are going to be stuck in that department like glue (changing departments in a medieval process), so you might as well set yourself up for a little less misery.

The school lured my daughter with merit basedQuite BrightMath
The school lured my daughter with merit based scholarships bringing my financial commitment down to $8k per year. I received a detailed list of my commitment for the year and I was asked to create an account with tuition management systems to pay that exact amount. AFTER my daughter moved in, they tripled the amount I was to pay without itemization. My daughter was forced to transfer.

The faculty is not on the same pageAverageBiology
The faculty is not on the same page and you will more than likely have to take courses that are not published as a course a requirement. The faculty is unhelpful and unprofessional in most cases with the exception of a select few. I do not feel that the education I received was worth my time or money. The faculty does not support working student or students who work through college. Most professors will ask you to reduce your hours or give you a hard time about it.
