this is a totallyy unorganized review cuz i'm just speaking
what's on my mind..
Overall, Suffolk is a terrible school
to go to, especially if you're looking for a legit
'college experience.' First off, I'm an art major and the
art school is an approximate 20 minute walk away, depending
on which building you live in. That's one hell of
a walk if you're carrying a crap load in your
portfolio and it sucks even more when you have class
before or after on the other side of the school.
It's honestly on the other side of the city. Unlike
most schools with a campus, you'd have to cross the
Boston Commons and the Public Garden in order to get
to the art school. & That's no fun at all,
especially walking through the Commons at night. Basically, if you're
unlucky and is stuck with a late schedule at the
art school, you're screwed even if you decide to take
the T back to your residence hall. Why? because first
off, you're tired, you don't want to be carrying a
huge portfolio around, and from the T, you'd have to
walk at least 2, or 3 blocks away (possibly even
walking uphill on Park St or Beacon Hill if you
live in Miller or the Holiday Inn) and by the
time you've got to your destination, you're fuckedd cus you're
so exhausted from the 3 hour art classes and crap.
Don't get me wrong, Boston is an absolutely gorgeous city
and the surroundings of Suffolk isn't bad, but it definitely
doesn't compare to Northeastern, BU, etc because they actually have
a legit campus. The problem with Suffolk's location is that
it's in the CENTER of downtown, which kind of makes
it unsafe. There's tons of homeless people begging for money
and that kind of makes it scary for people to
walk around at night. And the fact that Suffolk is
right next to Emerson (one of the most dangerous colleges)
doesn't help either. Seriouslyyy, it's retarded.
The people at Suffolk
aren't so dandy either. They're definitely not the brightest people
around. Let's just say, almost everyone goes to Allston to
part every weekend. Everyone's always getting drunk, despite what day
of the week it is and that's absolutely ridiculous. Seriously?
No one really gives a crap about their school work
either. If they're a tiny bit stressed out, they drink.
Not to mention, people tend to be extremely clicky. They
are so immature and act like middle schoolers. For instance,
the previous semester, people at 150 Tremont weren't allowed to
have guests because they decide to pee and shit
all over the suits. You can't tell me that's not
immature and disgusting. Mind you, these people are COLLEGE STUDENTS,
supposedly. ALSO, it's impossible to study in your room with
people in the hallway running around like wild animals.
was totally thinking of transferring but I'm obviously fucked because
the credits aren't even transferrable. Apparently, the first semester, i'm
supposed to have 4 art classes (which is what normal
universities have) and i didn't. Therefore, I have to wait
until next semester. Most of the classes don't measure up
to other university's credits so it's not that easy to
transfer, unless you decide to go to a community college
It's impossible to save money in Suffolk. First
off, your friends are most likely rich because come on
now, you have to have good money to afford to
go to such a nonsense school for so much money.
And second off, people spend all of their money shopping
(cuz there's not that much to do) or on alcohol
since everyone is drunkies there.
BASICALLY, i do not advise
any to come here AT ALL.
