transferred here to Suffolk from a bigger school (over 20,000)
so I got the “college experience” However, no one who
went to Suffolk as a freshman got this experience. If
you want to go out to the bars every weekend
and spend hundreds of dollars, then go to Suffolk. Other
than that, you don't get a campus community feel like
other schools will get you and there are no raging
house parties like bigger schools.
The dorms may come off
as nice, but they are AWFUL. Way too expensive (although
you should know that since your in the heart of
downtown boston.) I lived in 10 West, I went home
for a weekend and came back to a nasty message
from the head lady saying they found alcohol in my
room. Pretty sure you need some permission to do that,
but nope they just went into my room, went through
my closets and everything. Although I was in the
“wrong” I just simply felt disrespected.
Academics are OKAY, the
faculty are easily accessible. The classes are fairly easy, since
going to another school I have something to compare to.
I went to a much more prestigious school prior, so
I wasn't expecting the same thing at Suffolk. It's easy
to get into. You feel like your in high school,
theres still smart kids but there's still dumb kids.
one thing I hate about Suffolk the most, academics wise,
is constantly being compared to obviously the more prestigious schools
in the Boston area. Suffolk is clearly the bottom of
the barrel in terms of surrounding schools, and I have
found that professors are constantly boasting about graduating from Northeastern,
or Harvard, etc.
