Most Helpful Review for Worcester Polytechnic Institute

Classes are fast paced and can be difficult but there are many resources to help you. Professors are generally willing to help, as are other students. The Math and Science Help Center (MASH) is extremely useful for early math and science classes. An emphasis on projects and hands on learning also makes learning easier.

    Be prepared to do a lot of work. The classes are harder here than at another school for some reason. Their are always people willing to help you.

    WPI has a very beautiful campus. The teachers are very helpful and care about the students. The courses are not easy but there are plenty of places where one can receive help.

    This is a world class school, but with this being said it comes at a world class price with an expected world class wealth of knowledge. You're making an excellent choice in this school and it can and will set you up for the life. There are many resources like tutoring and office hours that can ensure your success here.

    By submitting my deposit to WPI, I had no idea that I was making the best decision of my life! Honestly, I cannot see myself anywhere else for college. WPI has more to offer students: one-on-one interactions with professors to hand-on projects within the first year!

    The campus and the people at WPI are beautiful. The work load and the material taught in the institute is a real challenge. There are many resources and opportunities available to make the most out your college experience.

    I loved the campus. It was not too big and in city, but still had an actual campus unlike some of the other schools in Boston I've looked at. I also liked that I don't have to decide right off what my major will be.

    I can not say enough good things about this school. Sure, it is a challenging curriculum but if you put in the work, there is nothing stopping you from exceeding. It is a fabulous community of students who are truly dedicated to learning.

    Its a combination of everything. You will find nerdy CS majors to football jocks and guys like me that are in the middle. If you can't handle too much workload then I suggest not coming here.
