3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There are some very motivational teachers here who are truly willing to help you, but there are also plenty of teachers that believe it is your job to take things into your own hands. The food is decent for school food, but the housing leaves something to be desired ( 4 cement block walls with shoddy TV & internet connection).

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: If you want to live off campus you can find a place. The school won't help you at all because they want you on campus for 4 years

Parking: Plenty of parking on campus

Drug Safety: majority of people drink a decent amount smoke weed but thats really it

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: The safety here is pretty good. I never feel uncomfortable because campus police is always around- whether it be biking on the campus or driving on campus in the campus police cars. All visitors have to sign in and have a guest pass, which is not always followed but it is an important rule.

Local Atmosphere: Worcester is not as bad as some people assume, you just have to look in the right places. There are many areas that have amazing restaurants and cool shops. Highland Street and Shrewsbury Street are two of the most popular streets to find something tasty to eat or to just browse along. They are mostly occupied by college students.

Campus Strictness: The Worcester Police station is located inside of our campus. They are pretty good with safety. They are not overly protective because they are aware that college students are simply trying to enjoy their weekends but they are not lenient. Parties do not go on for more than four to five hours and any minors are always kicked out of parties if campus police or any RA knocks on the door. No alcoholic beverages are allowed in freshman or sophomore dorms and they will be written up if any is found but RA's are not allowed to check inside the refrigerators if it is not AC property. Overall, AC is fairly strict.

Academics: The education as Assumption College is wonderful. I sincerely felt like I grew as a person and especially as a student. All of my professors were incredibly intelligent and always helpful. The professors do their best to give the students the benefit of the doubt and they are always available for office hours.

Off-Campus Dining: I attend school in Worcester and Assumption is not in the very middle of the city. It's located in the middle of the suburbs so in order to catch a burger or enjoy a nice restaurant you have to have a car to drive to these places. If you do not have a car you practically have no option but to eat on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Professors are great to contact and they are willing to help. The curriculum is well-organized and registration process is fast and simple. The work load depends on each professors, but usually they try to be considerate.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are a variety of dining places around Worcester, but you need a car and they aren't that cheap either.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: There are some good parties on campus, plus the parties at the Football house. Also there are some clubs and frat parties at other schools, but nightlife is better when you are 21

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: There is not much to do off-campus. You have to be 21 or older in order to go to the bars. There are a few clubs that aren't that bad and other colleges are nearby too.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: Often cold. It snows or rains a lot, but classes do not usually get cancelled.

4 College Sophomore

Computers: There are computers pretty much all over campus and they are all new macs and super nice. They're starting to provide more printers in different areas of the campus and I've had some issues with a few of them. But the campus is not too big so that if one printer is giving you problems you walk a minute to the next one. I have never had an issue finding an available computer on campus, even during exam week.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: I have had some great experiences with professors so far, especially with my adviser. Except for my bible class, which was totally new to me (not having opened a bible once), I enjoyed all of my professors, felt like I actually got my moneys worth, and the classes weren't ridiculously hard.
However, I have heard a lot of complaints from people about certain linkage programs and some of their classes. Some teachers are not available, seem to be a waste of time to show up to class and you cannot wait to just get the credit. But sometimes there's professors like that everywhere so I'm not letting it effect the grade I gave.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: The school is small so it makes sense that there is not a ton of diversity. The majority of students come from New England, including myself, and of that majority, 80% of them come from Mass. Even with this majority, there are still large organizations on campus and clubs that get together with other colleges in the area. There may not be a ton of diversity, but there's a niche for any individual that's looking for one.

2 College Sophomore

Transportation: There are buses on the weekends that go to movie theaters and close shopping malls but no buses that take you into the city. If you want something in the city, you need to find a friend with a car or take a taxi. Freshmen aren't allowed to have a car on campus freshmen year, which is typical but really frustrating if you ever have to go off campus to get medicine, cleaning supplies, bath supplies etc. For the last month of my freshmen year I sneaked my car on campus in the overflow parking lot and never had any issues or tickets but the tickets can get super pricey. On the weekends for late night there is "Safe Ride" which has the ride back to Assumption a flat $5 rate no matter where you are in Worcester, which is definitely nice especially for keeping drunk drivers off the road. But other than that, a car is definitely necessary.

4 College Junior

Computers: My favorite thing about the computers on campus is that printing is free! All you have to do is swipe your card on a little screen, select what you need to print (it is touch screen) and you're documents are ready for you in seconds. The only thing that I don't enjoy is that IT only prints single-sided, so if you need to print something double-sided or just have to save paper, you can only go to the library. Also, getting connected to wifi is a pain unless you have an ethernet cable (this applies to people who have Dell computers). Overall, the computers are efficient on Assumption's campus.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: While every student is involved in his or her own interests and students, the student body overall is very friendly and I always see people waving, smiling, or saying hello to each other. It is also very easy to make friends on campus because everyone I've been exposed to in the dorms are very outgoing and engaging.

Facilities: There is plenty to do on Assumption's campus! Lots of activities every weekend. The only complaint I have is there isn't a group for sober kids who just want to hang out.

Weather: Worcester weather is crazy. Lots of rain, snow, and sun. You never get the weather you were hoping for, but it makes each day an adventure.

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: I usually don't eat off campus or leave campus because it's so expensive. Worcester has a lot to offer, but first years cannot have cars and for me that was a reason to stay on campus a lot.
