ABOUT THE SCHOOL
Founded in 1906, Suffolk University is a medium-sized, 4-year private university located in the historic neighborhood of Beacon Hill in the heart of downtown Boston, offering an urban setting where academic buildings and residence halls are all within a 10-minute walk. The university places a strong emphasis on experiential learning, small classes, leadership development, and internships and career connections.
