There are very few options when it comes to partying at Suffolk University. Dorm drinking in one of the suites is usually the norm, but other than that there are a couple of groups of kids that hit either the clubs or the bars every weekend. If you're interested in going to a college where partying is a big part of the experience, Suffolk should be near the bottom of your list.

You are in the middle of Boston when you attend Suffolk University, and it definitely shows. There are plenty of both chain and independently owned restaurants within a 5-10 minute walk from the dorms and you'll never get bored if you want to make a point of eating out frequently.

Guys & Girls:
The girls at Suffolk are a pretty standard representation of the general population. There are definitely hot ones, and there are definitely ugly ones, but I wouldn't say that the norm is anything but average.

Nobody cares about sports at Suffolk - they're just not a part of the college. We don't have many of the typical sports teams, and the ones we do have are all D3 by a long shot. The people I know who are involved in the teams say that playing on them is a good time, but besides the players, nobody else shows up for the games.

Suffolk does not offer any sort of on or off campus parking whatsoever. You're still welcome to find a spot somewhere in Beacon Hill, but there are plenty of times that people have spent long enough looking for a spot for class that they've just driven back home.

The front desk in the lobbies of the dorms require students to both swipe themselves in and sign in any visitors they have with them. Getting alcohol into the dorms isn't a real issue, as you can carry it in and out in a backpack, but suspicious behavior will merit a search of whatever you have on you at the time. As far as getting caught in the dorms goes, my only advice to you is "don't". Campus police are relatively strict about Suffolk being a "dry campus", and the punishments that go along with possession of alcohol/drugs are fairly harsh.

Greek Life at Suffolk is completely irrelevant. The only fraternity "on campus" is Sigma Alpha Epsilon, and they do absolutely nothing that would affect the life of a normal student. They have no housing, don't throw parties, and are not at all recognized as a fraternity in the conventional sense.

I'd say being a Business major is probably the best move you can make as an undergrad at Suffolk. The staff is professional and actively involved in the field, making them passionate about what it is they're teaching their students.

While a degree from Suffolk University isn't going to do a whole lot for you professionally, the classes are easy and the workload is manageable. It's a school with 75% acceptance rate; you're not going to get much more than you expect.

Apartments around Suffolk are expensive, but completely worth it. It's a time-tested fact that the only real fun you have at Suffolk is once you've moved out of the dorms.

Make sure to bring your own laptop for class, but don't expect too much from the Wi-Fi in the dorms. Keeping track of homework would almost be impossible without access to Blackboard, and having your own computer is a huge part of that.

Suffolk University has one available "dining hall" available to the majority of it's students. The food is bad, the prices are higher than they should be, and it's located in the lobby of the freshman dorm. You're much better off eating at one of the many restaurants surrounding the dorms.

I didn't apply or intend to apply for financial aid, so I have no insight on the process or the accessibility of it.

You're right in the heart of a major city, so wind can be a serious factor when walking to and from class. Besides that, pretty basic New England weather is what you should expect.

Suffolk University is not exactly what I signed up for. I was the kind of kid that had a great time in high school. I loved hanging out with my friends in school, going to the games, and partying on weekends - by the time we graduated, I was ready to do it all over again. Suffolk has not been anything like I expected college to be; there is absolutely no campus, no sense of community, and school spirit is almost nonexistent.
College Freshman 2013-12-06T00:51:56Z
Suffolk is in the middle of the city - as a result, getting anywhere that's not within walking distance is always a little bit of a process. That being said, the dorms are right next to the Park St. train station which allows access to anywhere on the Green or Red lines.

I went to the financial aid office because they didn't give me enough the first time around. They were very helpful and offered me many different scholarships.
