The tops three reasons go hand in hand. The first one usually works for everyone, but the other two might not. The number one reason why someone should attend Umass lowell is because the cost. It is cheaper than other state schools, its well known, accredited and has smart, well taught professors who are willing to help students more hours than needed. The second reason is because of the location. Sitting in a popular part of Lowell on a river there is a lot to do whether it is inside or out. The Tsonga's center is always having events you can attend to. There is a huge sports field and on the river you can enjoy canoeing or kayaking. The third reason is because it is very easy to get around at North Campus which is where Engineering, math, accounting students, and science students are mostly. There are underground walkways and an above ground walkways connecting buildings so in the coldest of weather you do not have to walk outside. Umass Lowell is always staying on top of safety as well, practicing fire alarm drills, and improving safety around them.
