5 College Freshman

Local Area: It's in the middle of no where but five to ten minutes down the road is Worcester so there's always something you can do.

Local Area: I love Paxton. The small town charm makes you feel safe to spend time in.

3 College Freshman

Local Area: not a lot of people know where paxton is. we have schools nearby in Worcester but thats still a thirty minute drive.

5 College Sophomore

Local Area: Anna Maria is located in a quiet town, at the end of a neighborhood type road. The campus its self is very isolated, which is nice because it gives it a small and very safe feeling. But Anna Maria is located only a few miles outside of Worcester, a city with plenty of entertainment and shopping. The Worcester area is also home to 13 other colleges, making it very easy to interact with other campuses.

3 College Junior

Local Area: I personally do not like the location. It is close to Worcester, a big city but the campus is very isolated.
