3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: We have had some problems with local residents and parking. It's a big problem on campus, and so when trying to park in other places, the residents have complained and wanted to tow the student's cars.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: You can't walk to anywhere off campus. You probably ask for a ride from a friend or take a bus.

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: I love Worcester, but WSU isn't in the best part of it. Not a whole lot to do in the Tatnuck square area. To get anywhere cool, you've either got to drive or take public transportation. Walking that far would be insane.

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: There are a lot of sports in which the student could be involved in. There are a couple of malls and bars that are nearby.

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: There are a lot of bars and clubs for students to attend on weekends, and also a few good restaurants around Worcester. But Worcester is not a good area for walking and I would not feel safe living there after college.
