“UMass Dartmouth is the worst school in allJan 15 2014English
There is no academic rigor at the school, especially in the English department and program. They literally let ANYONE enroll and push them along until they drop out or flunk out in higher level courses.
Faculty is more than 80% part timers who are working at other schools or jobs because they don't hire full timers. The full timers they do hire are not interested in student success, only their own retirement.
The school is tired and lacking direction. Students can get a much better education and experience if they drive 30 minutes north to Bridgewater State University. I've studied at both and BSU is leaps and bounds ahead of UMD.UMD will take your money and leave you floundering. I wish I had never gone there.
“UMass Dartmouth is definitely what you make outDec 18 2013Finance
The campus is not that beautiful, but setting your priorities to how pretty the campus is when deciding what college to go to, is probably not the best idea.
Freshman dorms are being renovated, so do your homework and pick the ones that are already renovated. They are extremely nice compared to the ones that are not!
The food is terrible, but they try their best to improve it.
Overall, UMD improves all the time. The chancellor wants to improve the school for everybody's experience. It is not perfect, but we do NOT live in a utopian society and nothing is perfect. It is a cheap school and you can get a great education if you pick the right professors. If you can go to your dream school go ahead, but if not UMD is a good back-up!

- Besides the classes, I actually really like Dartmouth's campus as well. The buildings themselves are pretty damn ugly to be honest, but then again, if you make your choice of any college based on what it looks like alone, you probably have your priorities in the wrong place anyways. The sports facilities, fields, and gyms are pretty nice, although the work-out room is always overcrowded. I understand the discontent with the food services that have been made known in some of the other comments on this website, since the food isn't amazing and the operating times are just as impressive, but the food provider company is extremely receptive to criticisms and suggestions, so there's no complaint there either. - All of that being said, I would happily recommend UMass Dartmouth to another (or at least to those wanting to attend the school for Electrical Engineering).
