Assumption College - Comments and Student Experiences |
I came from a high school of similar size and I can totally understand why some kids here call it "assumption high." The student body is incredibly cliquey and self absorbed. Everyone here is incredibly judgemental and no one knows how to have fun! The party scene is awful, if you can manage to find one, people will either leave after an hour or 2 or will be shut down by the overzealous campus police force. I had much more fun going off campus than trying to find a dorm to drink in. Dorms are decent, apartments are nice but feel incredibly antisocial. Dining hall food varies, some days its awesome, but others aren't so much. Activities on campus are either awesome or godawful. Student run open mic nights are always a great time, but lately assumption has been keen on sponsoring "club nights" and grooveboston visits which are essentially middle school dances.
The one positive I really can give about this school is when the academics are good, they are DAMN GOOD. Yeah, there are a few professors in each subject that should not be teaching, but at the same time I have had some incredible professors that are very kind, helpful, and really passionate about their jobs. Some majors do have wayyyy too many classes that you need to take, but they are working on consolidating them. If you do go to assumption, you are going to get a top notch education.All in all, I can't recommend this school. While the academics are amazing, the social life is just awful. Worcester is a dead city, and the on campus activities are almost always lacking. I'm planning on transferring to a school where I know I can have fun every weekend.
