Worcester Polytechnic Institute - Comments and Student Experiences|
6) expect everyone to be in relationships
7) live off campus after freshman year to save money.
8) live in a freshman dorm.
9) don't expect to find hipsters (i'm using the term loosely). this school houses more introverted, arrogant, depressed weirdos than you can imagine. the free spirit doesn't exist. 10) kids act like they're living the high school experience they never had.
On top of all of this, you need to be in a frat to have a good time. There is literally NOTHING to do on the weekends, but the school makes up for this by making you work hard all weekend and just end up hating life.
I haven't felt comfortable at this school and don't think it's my fault. In high school I had many friends and felt happy. Usually in college, that is supposed to progress into something better and more enjoyable, but this school has just been killer.
I do have a good core group of friends and we're able to hang out and have fun, but if it wasn't for them (and their fraternities), I'd be having a much worse time.Do yourself a favor and get into the UMass Amherst engineering program. Don't give this school a cent of your money cause you'll never see it spent well.
About the only thing that is good about his school is the snow removel. If there is a snow storm and classes did not get cancelled, the sidewalks and pathways are cleared.
My point is that if you pay top dollar for a school, you should get the best of everything. Well here you don't. If the WIFI was better, if the servers were better, and everything else was better. Then maybe I would change my rating. But for now it is low.
