What Students Are Saying

3.82 Average Rating
worcester state university offers a great education for a great price. college is very expensive and its nice to know i wont be even close to $100,000 in debt upon graduation (especially since i want to obtain a masters degree later on). commuting works for me because i can work as well as enjoy the perks of being on campus whenever i want.

there is always some kind of event taking place on campus. the teachers are great and really care about the students' success. the campus offers a comfortable library to study in.
