  • I am accepted here and planning to attend soon

    If you're looking to be in a city and urban setting, this is DEFINITELY your school. It's located in the heart of Boston, and majority of the campus surrounds the commons. Being an urban campus, walking quite a ways is necessary to get to certain classes. A small price to pay for a beautiful city.

  • I am researching this school and have visited the campus

    The campus was great, right in Boston Commons. I really liked the art school, the dorm was amazing. I think Boston would be a terrific plase to go to college.

    Sometimes I really enjoy Suffolk, and other times I feel there are a lot of things missing. For one, the sense of community and school activity lacks greatly. The school is not so good at getting the word out about events or student happenings. The campus is also really spread out, so you have to walk through the Boston common to get to classes. The food was really sub-par until they opened up the cafe at 73 Tremont which is WORLDS better than anything they had before, so it's where I go most of the time. You'll be happy here if you are outgoing and take the time to make friends, and you may find you enjoy being with a lot of people who are a different race or class than you. I think one thing I really like about the school is that the demographics range from inner-city kids to rich international students, which makes a unique culture at the school.

    The administrative aspects of the school could be improved. The library hours are also pretty limiting.
