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.
Tips for prospective students
get involved. i know this is mostly a commuter school, but getting involved really helps you feel like part on the worcester state community. it also provides a learning experience which you can add to rev up your resume.
Academic Rigor
i am a junior, and as a junior classes should be challenging. an important thing about classes is that you can chose how challenging it is based on how much work you are willing to put in. the more work you put in, the better the grade, and, most importantly you will learn very important skills for your field.
Dorm Life
honestly, i have never dormed at this campus but hear mixed reviews. many people enjoy living on campus for the convenience very much. the only complaint is the shorting of housing, but don't worry, wsu has already started plans to build a new residence hall.
Food and Dining
i love the taco salad bowls found in the lower caf. if you go, you have to try one out! i also recommend the paninis at the lower cafe. breakfast is better than ihop at the dinning hall. the cooks make breakfast sandwiches and omelets to order and have a wide variety of ready foods if you don't want to wait. pre-made salads are good and i love the starbucks on campus!
What to do for fun
the greendale mall is close by, and there are tons of clubs in the area.
Bang for the buck
prior to attending wsu, i attended a private college. i am saving so much money by attending wsu and i am getting a great education. professors are very helpful.

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.
Tips for prospective students
go to the events, they are fun and get you connected. study in the library, it helps you to focus in a peaceful atmosphere. if you commute, get to school early to get a parking space.

worcester state is a small quiet school. it has small class sizes which gives you the chance to get to know you professors.
Tips for prospective students
save money! don't slack off. teachers do care if you attend class and do your homework.
Academic Rigor
some teachers don't care if you show up. however the majority do. some days there will be a lot of homework but as long as you keep up with it, it's not too bad.
Dorm Life
i'm a commuter. however i would prefer to live in the dorms as it's easier to get to know people and make friends.
Food and Dining
food is awesome! and pretty cheap too.
What to do for fun
you can pay sports. there are a lot of clubs you can join and there are field trips all the time.
