- 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. 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 - 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.
