Program director is extremely unhelpful, disrespectful , andQuite BrightNursing
Program director is extremely unhelpful, disrespectful , and downright rude...... "it's my job to try and fail you" ! Extended faculty/advisors can care less, you clearly "get what you pay for" therefor it's no surprise this program has such a high drop out rate. Needless to say with that type of support I withdrew from the WSU Nursing program and I'm at another major MA University Nursing program and proud to say I'm at the top of my class !

Question
Faculty is condescending andBrightPsychology
Faculty is condescending and arrogant. They are NOT helpful and treat you like they can't wait for you to be out of their class. They make you feel stupid for asking questions and like you are BOTHERING them. I have never seen such politics in administration constant damage control.

Question
- I attended Worcester State for a year,BrightPsychology
- I attended Worcester State for a year, then transferred out. However, I know many people who love the school.

- It is mostly a commuter school, so there definitely isn't a "community" feel to it. A lot of people come to campus for class, then leave.

- It's a pretty basic campus. Definitely not "pretty", but it's functional. Looks a lot like a high school.

- Parking is insane. It's best to park at the nearby Goddard Ave. parking lot they assigned, because on-campus parking will be impossible unless you arrive to school at 7:00AM or 4:00PM.

- Party life is good, though. Most parties are off campus. You can find drugs if you need them, and almost everyone drinks. With most parties being off-campus, you have to make connections.

- Staff is okay. Financial aid office is brutal - everyone is really bland, and they seem annoyed all the time. Some professors are awesome, some don't seem invested in the slightest. But I'm sure that's the case everywhere.

- It's a good school convenience-wise: affordable tuition, ideal if you live in Worcester, etc.
- The education isn't top-notch, but it's something.
- My biggest complaint is that there isn't a "community" feel to it. - Worcester is an amazing college town, though. So many bars and clubs. Clubs are a big thing on Thursday nights. It's easy to meet people from the other colleges. It's a great social scene within the town. You definitely have that whole "hook-up culture" thing going, as well. Some call that trashy, some call that college life. Either way, Worcester is a fantastic college town when it comes to night life. That was the best part of going to school there.
