-bustling downtown

-varied food

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: Worcester is a city. However, it has the town atmosphere. There's plenty of attractions to go to, many stores to shop or many restaurants. The only problem, sometimes you may need a car to go to a few places but most of the time, it's a walking distance. I believe worcester is the perfect size for many people

3 College Senior

Local Area: There are bars all over time, convenience/service stores are readily available, living is affordable. Area attractions and activities are limited to a park, library, museum and Ecotarium. Safety is average in the local environment, it is an urban community.

3 College Sophomore

Local Area: 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.
