The computers at our school all function far beyond the minimum requirement for getting work and research done and are easy to print from upon completion

There Is No Real Drug Use – Drinking is popular on campus but there is little to no drug use.

They Work. The computers are not extremely high technology atleast not in the libray. in IT they are better but all of the computers work and get the job done so I am completely satisfied with them. The computers in the library fill up very quickly in the mornings and at night so it is sometimes hard to find one, but computers can be found at other places on campus such as IT, Kennedy, and the 24 hour room. Printing works well with the ID card and the computers are very reliable.

Guys & Girls:
People Are Nice but Arrogant – I feel that a lot of people are stuck up and very wealthy and it shows. People are not very friendly and usually keep to themselves and their friends.

Very Good With Helping – The professor that I have had so far have been very helpful in office hours and in the classroom.

The School Is Helpful – My major is barely noticed at school, but the teacher is amazing. The workload is manageable and the professor is understanding. The school itself is very helpful and has many programs to help their students find work or figure out where they're going after college.

It's Not Bad Here at All – Assumption does offer a diverse choice in classes, but they prefer to focus their advertisement to solely their business and science majors. Personally, I go to Assumption for their Classics major (Latin and ancient Greek studies). It's a tiny department but it is taught by a wonderful and extremely knowledgeable professor. Most teachers are happy working at Assumption and they are always there for their students. The school offers tutoring sessions for their students if they choose.

It Rains a Lot – The weather is usually pretty nice in Worcester. This past semester it rained a lot. Classes are never usually canceled. When they are, it is because a major storm is hitting.

Drinking Is Very Popular – The school has the nickname of Consumption. Many people on campus drink, especially on the weekends. There are plenty of people who do not drink and they have a wonderful social life. The people who do drink are very respectful to the people who chose not to drink. Peer pressure is non existent.

Guys & Girls:
A Little Bit of Everything – Unfortunately, girls outnumber guys. There are just about all types of guys on campus. The cuter ones tend to play sports. Girls get annoying but it's always a fun time chilling out people watching and rating the girls and gals that walk by.

Numerous Options With Student Discounts – There are a lot of restaurants, shops, and stores( froyo!) that are available to colleges in this town. Many accept student campus cash and some also give student discounts.

Health & Safety:
Very Safe – Assumption is a very safe campus with an active campus police. Assumption is one of the few colleges where the campus police carry guns, so in emergency situations, they can actually do something. Make sure to always lock your door, no matter where you are going, and don';\t walk alone at night.

There are many smaller parking lots as opposed to a few huge ones. This makes the campus prettier, but it can be hard to find a spot. Freshmen are not allowed to have cars on campus.

Process Was Easier Than Expected – Like all financial aid, no one ever gets as much as they want, but I was happy and got as much as I expected. The school is very reasonable.

Great Student Activities Offered on the Weekends – I may sound like a loser, but I enjoy all the activities that Assumption puts on every Friday and Saturday night. While the 21 year olds hit the popular Worcester bars, the rest of campus can go to the student center to see a comedian or participate in a gameshow and every Friday night the school operates its own "club" where there is a dj and blacklights. Students definitely have their own parties in their rooms, but I guess I think that the school does a great job at making sure that students are never at a loss for what to do on a weekend night. Some people hit the clubs on thursday nights, but they are never worth the trouble of getting yourself there.

I am a natural born New Englander so I enjoy snow and leaves and rain in the springtime. Assumption receives lots of snow and typical spring and fall weather. The school is very good about removing the snow and making the campus safe. The grounds always look beautiful and school is cancelled when it is appropriate. No complaints!!!

You Have to Rely on Taxis More Than You Want to – Assumption College is part of a consortium so it has a shuttle that transports students to all of the colleges in the consortium on weekdays. That is convenient for students in that situation. However, in terms of going off campus to the mall or grocery store, students are only offered to ride the "Woobus" on Friday and Saturday nights. The "Woobus" is not reliable and it is an actual school bus so it is pretty lame. If you want to go to the club or out to dinner you are most likely going to end up splitting an expensive cab with your friends. They do have UShare car on campus but it is too expensive. The only method of transportation that I really appreciate at Assumption is the 5 dollar cab rides that are offered on Friday and Saturday nights. Basically the rule is that the school does not want anyone driving drunk or getting in the car with a stranger because they are trying to be frugal. So on those nights, not matter where you are in worcester, you can call a cab and get back to school for 5 dollars. You don't have to be drunk or in danger to use it, and the cab drivers are on board with the deal so it is easy to just get in a cab and say what you want.

Assumption College has several places where students can gain access to computers and printers. Printing on campus is free and unlimited so that is a great perk when a class expects you to print dozens of slides or if you just want to spare your own printer every now and again. WiFi exists all over campus but it can be a little spotty. I have very little trouble with my Mac but I know that those with Dells tend to rely on their ethernet cable oftentimes.

Health & Safety:
Extremely Safe – Although this school is located in a city that doesn't have the best of reputations, Assumption is a very safe school. I have never felt threatened by fellow students or visitors to the campus. The campus police are all over so you always have someone to turn to if you need help. I feel completely comfortable leaving my computer on a desk in the library while I search for books or step outside to make a phone call. I do lock my door at night, but that is just because I don't want friends to feel free to come in whenever they want. Assumption College is truly a safe place to be.

Assumption College was my dream school from the very beginning. Everyone was so welcome and respectful. People are always willing to help you at a drop of a hat. We always have activities going on everyday so that people can get involved around the community! It's an all around amazing school and I wouldn't dream of transferring to a different school!

Decent System – Everyone is very welcoming at the financial aid office. They give you plenty of time and notice so that you get your papers in on time. My only complaint is that I've had to make multiple trips back and forth to the financial aid office because they have told me I had everything in, and then a day later sent me an email saying that another paper was missing.

Health & Safety:
Usually Safe – Assumption College is a very safe college. There is a sense of security that I didn't get from any of the other schools I have visited in the past which is one of the main reasons as to why I am enrolled in the school. My only concern is the weekend drinking that sometimes gets out of hand. For the most part, myself and many other students feel completely safe.

Even if you are not on a sports team, which most people are, you still have the opportunity to participate in intramural sports. They are very popular and competitive on campus,and you and your team recieve prizes for winning.

The academics at Assumption College are very challenging and you really have to strive to succeed in your classes.

There is always an available computer to use on campus, with free printing! The internet is also very fast.
