The professors are all extremely qualified scholars with degrees from Harvard, Boston College, Boston University, etc.
It is a commuter school, so there is little college life/environment to take part in.
The best thing about UMass Boston is the education I received. I have been able to look back on the things I learned there and apply them to my job today.
