Positive Negative Neutral Advice
- 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.

This school is all about money.Not so brightBusiness - Management and Administration
This school is all about money. They are more focused on how to make more money than they are in helping students. I think it's horrible how they will try to take every last penny. Actual example: Student is available for grants, financial aid adviser recommends to take loan, not grants. The way they word things, they should be used car sales people...

Came here for a second Bachelor's degree -Quite BrightBusiness - Management and Administration
Came here for a second Bachelor's degree - wish I had gone here first! Great professors in the Business Dept., especially Wark, Dahlin and Stefanini. Due to my education at WSU, I landed a job paying $20,000 more a year than my previous position. But, you have to do the work and get involved. Do an internship (or several), and get to know the professors.
