What Students Are Saying

3.66 Average Rating
Get Involved! Rock the Block is during the first week of school, every club and organization on campus is there with sign up sheets, if something intrests you, sign up! The best way to make the best of your 4 years here is to get involved in something you love to do, it will make day to day life at college 100 times more enjoyable! Be spontaneous & try something new, meet new friends, and adventure!
Caylynn from Attleboro, MA
Be yourself and involve yourself with campus activities and clubs. In my opinion do not involve yourself with campus too much your freshman year because you are getting used to the surroundings, but it really all depends on your personality and major to be honest. FOCUS on class. Make sure to take good notes, listen for any repeated things that a professor might say and have fun. This is a new beginning for you enjoy yourself, discover new ways of learning and stay truth to yourself.
Carlos from Worcester, MA
Great open houses, staff easy to talk to and very knowledgeable, always able to answer your questions or point you to someone who can. President of the school very visible, makes students feel like he knows each and every one of them.
JULIA from Yarmouth Port, MA
You have to work hard thus do your homework and also study for tests and quizzes. You also have to go to class everyday with a pen and a notebook so that you can take notes. Never let go an extra credit pass by without doing it.
Kwaku from Worcester, MA
Remember, even though college is super fun, it's still school and you need to study.
Nicole from Salisbury, MA
Get involved! This is the best way to meet people! My freshman year I did cross country, indoor track and field, softball, intramural basketball, worked with the Athletic Trainers, and trained to be an RA. I loved every minute of it and met so many great people! Another tip I would have is to always go to class. No matter how tired or lazy you feel, remember that every class you skip is costing you money. One professor told us that missing one class is basically equivalent to throwing $100 down the drain. Don't do this! Also, you need to work hard. Don't put your social life before your studies.
Shannon from Blackstone, MA
A tip that I wish I had was to look at your degree evaluation and figure out what classes you will need to take for your major and the pre-requisites that are required for your degree! Not knowing that in the beginning of my Freshman year made me behind just one course! Also if you have the chance to add on a minor DO IT! With the advanced LAS that is required for every student, just doing TWO more classes gets you a minor in that subject!
