What Students Are Saying

3.82 Average Rating
Be prepared to do a lot of walking across campus from one building to the next. Worcester gets really cold in the winter, and has a lot of drastic weather changes, so be prepared to wear your winter coat. Like any college, some professor and classes demand different work ethic out of their students. Be prepared to work hard.
1. Get involved in the various clubs and activities that Assumption provides.
2. Use the tutoring center and you professors office hours, it may be the difference between an A and A-.
3. Make friends with more than one group of people, its nice to have multiple options for plans on the weekends.
4. 8:30 AM classes are worth it if your taking a class with the best professor.
5. Manage your time effectively and efficiently.
Kathryn from Worcester, MA
The school is very party oriented on the weekends, if you don't want to party you should request to live on the Hill. The Hill is the quietest place on campus. You should also always ask the professor for help when you need it and tell them when you'll be absent they'll help you out the best they can and sympathize.
Gabriella from Otisfield, ME
Give Assumption a chance. Students will be able to balance the school work and also have a fulfilling social life. Every student will feel welcome by other students and faculty. Students are guaranteed to belong in a sport or a club that will make them feel welcome.
Jonathan from Holden, MA
The great thing about the size of Assumption College is that all of the main buildings are very close to ine another. With that being said, take advantage of going to the library to complete your studies. Also, venture to the dining hall in your free time so you are able to meet new people and have a great meal on top of it.
Marisa from West Haven, CT
Keep yourself organized early. Keep track of your awards, activities, leadership positions, volunteer work, etc. Taking AP classes is a great way to get ahead in college. Make sure your admissions essay truly comes from the heart. Most importantly, don't put too much pressure on yourself.

If you are nervous about anything, please do us all a favor and remember to breathe. There is no problem that cannot be fixed and at AC everyone is willing to help, even students for that matter. The courses are challenging, but its college so that is to be expected. When and if you apply here... we'll fill you in. AC has a great community and you are bound to find the right freinds whether they are in your field of study, dorm, residential hall, or club you are bound to find the right fit here.
Giovanna from Billerica, MA
Study hard and follow your passion. People will be there to help you if you can find those who are willing.
Julianna from Worcester, MA
Embrace the idea of general education requirements! You will learn interesting things and become a more well rounded person. If you keep an open mind you might find a new passion. If you find something out side of your major you like, minor in it! It will make your experience more exciting and you will stand out on a job application.
