4 College Freshman

Academics: We have great academic classes that students can take, and all of the professors are kind and helpful to all students.

4 College Senior

Academics: Its great to be my specific major at my school. Not many schools offer biotechnology as a major in the state of Massachusetts and Worcester state does that and also a major program. The workload is manageable but is a workload nevertheless. Facilities are pretty good and internships as well as job opportunities are exceptional. Wouldn't choose another school to do a program at. the price is just right and the educations is amazing. you cant beat that.

3 College Freshman

Academics: It depends on your major.

3 College Freshman

Academics: Professors are mainly fine. There some pretty cool ones, but those are mainly adjunct faculty...

3 College Junior

Academics: quite diverse but not as many majors as others.
