2 College Freshman

Party Scene: there really isn't anything ever going on unless you are 21 or over

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: taylor is a hit or miss, can be good, but often not

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: freshman dorms are small, heat is way too high all the time. clean though

3 College Freshman

Athletics: The quality of the facilities often does not reflect the success of the team. For example, some of the best sports on campus have mediocre facilities while some of the less successful sports on campus have prime facilities/schedules.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Downtown Worcester provides many variable options at a good price, the only setback is transportation to such places, as it is not provided on campus. Taxis to restaurants downtown can be quite expensive.

4 College Freshman

Administration: For the most part, campus police is very helpful. As long as they receive respect from the students they are very willing to help out. They are very good about coming to help when students are locked out/need assistance.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: The financial aid office is very open to working with students to help them receive the aid that they need to attend school. The school has a smooth process for applying for aid, and is open to working with students via email, telephone, or in person.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: The party scene at Assumption is overall quite positive. Non-Drinkers can attend parties without having to worry about judgement. The best parties are in the Sixes in the Valley, however some parties take place in the village for upperclassmen and athletes. The only night that parties take place for the most part is Saturday, otherwise the campus is mostly dead.

2 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food options on campus are limited, and the variety is virtually nonexistent. The presence of healthy options for protein, and fruits and vegetables is extremely limited and is a problem for many athletes trying to follow a healthy diet. However, the Charlie's points allow for some variety, and the food is better quality. The unlimited meal plan that all freshmen and many sophomores are forced to purchase is often unnecessarily, as even those who frequent the dining hall the most only use 2-3 swipes per day. The plan is more expensive than it is worth.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on Assumption College campus is certainly an enjoyable experience. The dorms are in good proximity to classes and the dining hall. The small campus size gives the college a friendly atmosphere, and the dorms are situated so that the dorms near each other also share a sense of community. However, the living spaces located on the hill of campus (Hanrahan, Nault, Young, and the T's) Are a hike in the winter from anywhere on campus and the stairs leading up to them are quite slippery. The people living on the "hill" share a less distinct sense of community. The separation of freshman/upperclassmen dorms is not ideal, but it allows the freshmen living in Alumni and Desautel Hall to form a strong sense of community. The options for upperclassmen housing are good, North Hall, West Hall, Plough Hall, and the LLC are very good options, however space is limited in these buildings and admittance is difficult.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: There is a lot of support for our sport teams.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Worcester is a college community, so the restaurants in the area do cater to the college life style. Some places keep late hours on the weekends for students with late night cravings.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: Parties happen from Thursday night to about Sunday night. Depending on the weekend determines how crazy the parties get. Usually they are pretty crazy but some weekends are crazier than usual.

Off-Campus Housing: I don't know much about off-campus housing, I live on campus.

4 College Freshman

Majors: It is good to have an idea of what you want to major in when going into college. It is perfectly ok to change your mind later, but just be aware of your interests and what you might want to do in the future.

Advisers are very helpful and understanding. They will help you plan out your future at the college, the classes you need to take and help pick what teachers would be better for you.

I had no problems with my major. Technically, you don't have to declare your major until the end of sophomore year, but I knew I wanted to major in a science. I applied to the school with a chemistry major in mind but ended up changing it to a biology major. No problem there.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: The better you do in high school the better your financial aid will be.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: It is an overall very safe campus, campus police are very nice and easily reachable. The parties can be loud and crazy but nothing too bad.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are alright but freshmen year really sucks for housing. Definitely go with Sals if you want a social atmosphere, the others just don't match up.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: worcester is a suburb so everything is pretty expensive unless you know someone to share housing with

3 College Freshman
