    This was not my school of choice, and I'm not staying here, I'm transferring to Clark University. But that doesn't mean that I don't greatly respect Worcester State for everything they've done to create an affordable and eclectic liberal arts school

    The bang for the buck is definitely there seemingly because the school is definitely inexpensive and you get a great education for a low cost.

    It's a great four year school especially for people who work and have to commute. Parking is usually hard to find so I suggest taking early classes to make sure you find a spot. The overall quality of everything is pretty good. If there is ever a problem there are plenty of offices and professors always willing to listen to your opinion and do their best to make sure you are satisfied.

    Worcester State is really cheap, especially if you get the John and Abigail Adams scholarship, which covers tuition.
