| Suffolk is 100% what you make of it. I came as an out of state student. It was definitely a bit difficult at first to adjust to the fact that it was mainly a commuter school with kids living at home or outside the city. However, if you get yourself involved in clubs and activities it is extremely easy to make friends. Some of the best friends that I still have are ones who I met in classes or in other activities around campus. People who say that there is "nothing to do" or "it doesn't have a campus" are just lazy and not putting themselves out there. Don't just go to class and then go home. Stick around to see what is going on. Attend events, info sessions, and volunteer projects. Not only does it help you meet people, but it also looks great to potential employers!|
As with any university there are some really amazing professors at Suffolk and then there are ones who just will never mesh with your particular learning style. Professors that one student thinks is insanely hard and awful another could find to be really helpful. It's all about how you use your resources. And yes, tuition and living in Boston are crazy expensive. My advice - apply for as many scholarships as possible. Become an RA in the dorms to help subsidize living expenses. At 19/20 it may sound awful to live on campus throughout college. Trust me, it will be a lot less painful than the student loan payment you'll be making after you graduate if you decide to live off campus.
