A more expensive college to attend but they are very generous with financial aid. Fairly small campus with all dorms being within a 5-15 minute walk to classes across campus.

Tends to rain more than average some seasons but mainly average New England weather.

Some neighborhoods may be more expensive than others and parking availability depending on location.

Plenty of options for bars if you are of age. Options for those under 21 as well. "Safe-ride" service very convenient $5 fee back to campus from anywhere in Worcester.

Good atmosphere in terms of campus and academics, I personally found the student population to be somewhat privileged.

There is no Greek life on campus as Assumption is a Catholic school.
College Sophomore 2013-11-19T01:58:23Z
Professors are great and very willing to help. Can be a lot of work depending on major (sciences) but manageable if you keep up with it.

It's like living in the center of the city without being in the city. Located on a more remote side street that is only a few minutes from downtown. Plenty of things to do in proximity.

Necessary to have your own computer for convenience so you won't be fighting with others when the labs are busy. Printing is great, IT'S FREE! Wireless is good but can be slow at times when a lot of people are online.

People definitely take part in somewhat excessive drinking and smoking on the weekends but there are alternative activities provided for those who are not interested.

Awesome new science building build a few years ago! Up to date labs and nice classrooms. Great science programs and very helpful faculty.
College Sophomore 2013-11-19T01:44:39Z
Some diversity but mostly upper middle class whites.
College Sophomore 2013-11-19T01:41:23Z
Good food but can be somewhat pricey depending on where you go. Not many student discounts offered or advertised.

Living on campus is not bad but it depends on where you dorm.The housing lottery is a mess and only makes everyone's lives difficult. Be ready for a stressful afternoon! They tend to accept to many students and then find it hard where to place them. Especially if you're a sophomore.
Freshmen have certain housing: Alumni, Des, Salisbury, and Hanrahan (but pretty much for the honors students only). Alumni and Des are three floor identical twin buildings in the heart of campus. They house students in doubles. They're not bad but you're living on top of another person, so hope that you get along. Everyone on that floor shares a bathroom. Don't worry there are girls floors and boys floors. Hanrahan is usually 95% honors students housed there. There are two triples in the basement floor and the rest are doubles. It's a maze like building that makes you feel like you're just living in one giant house with 40 people. It's not bad except the furniture could be updated. Salisbury is usually not the best place to live. Many students enjoy it but it's not for everyone. Typically you're in small rooms where three or four people are made to live together.

Health & Safety:
The campus police are great. They do their job well. The campus is not in chaos. People seem to feel safe on campus especially at night.
The health center is not that great.

It's very rainy in Worcester.
College Junior 2013-11-18T23:05:15Z
Assumption is a great school. I was told to go here. They don't seem to care much about my club sport or my major here, but I stay because my teacher and my coach/team are so amazing. It makes it worth it.

The school loves their football team. That is their crown jewel. The other varsity sports do get many perks in their own right, but the intramural are probably more popular to the disdain of varsity and club sport athletes. The club sports are not seen to be sports at all by the rest of the athletic departments but they are award wining and the student athletes are hard working. Students of all athletic departments are great and put their all into their sport.

Worcester is a nice city. The scenery is nice. There is a park down the street but Assumption's grounds are lovely enough. There are many colleges in Worcester and so the students interact a lot. The Art Museum is great and there are plenty of places to go shopping.
College Junior 2013-11-18T22:57:39Z
There are a number of computer labs on campus. If your own is having a problem you will still be able to use one of the labs or rent out a laptop in the library. The IT center here is pretty good at getting your computer running again. Printing here is in black and white only, but it is free.
College Junior 2013-11-18T22:55:27Z
Worcester is a large city with many great surrounding towns. There is an abundance of food options. Pretty much take your pick and it's somewhere. The prices do vary so be aware. Some places offer student discounts or if you have the WOO card here in Worcester that can be helpful.
College Junior 2013-11-18T22:53:30Z
The school does a great job in educating incoming freshmen about the consequences of alcohol and drug use.
College Freshman 2013-11-17T18:17:19Z
The courses aren't very challenging.
College Freshman 2013-11-17T18:17:19Z
There aren't many courses offered.

Guys & Girls:
The really attractive guys are either creeps or in a relationship. Kind of sucks for everyone looking for guys.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
