Assumption College Reviews
I had a great first year at Assumption! I was lucky enough to be recruited for the varsity softball team and I had such a wonderful time with my team and working hard for our season. My classes were also very enjoyable and I had very knowledgeable professors. One thing I really appreciated was how understanding my professors were about my athletic commitments. Campus life was also good as Assumption has a very strong and active community there was always something to do!
My freshman year I struggled to keep my GPA up I ended up on probation my second semester of freshman year. The amount of support and help I received from the college was outstanding. Now I'm going on to my junior year and have been able to keep my grades up and learn to get help when I need it. College has many quite study places. Everyone is friendly, I mean everyone!
I chose Assumption because of the community. Everyone is always willing to help others out and everyone gets close to each other. It’s a small school, and the location of campus makes it feel like your own world. Being a small school, I saw the same kids all the time and could know who was who on campus. I joined clubs where I was able to continue my love for music, theatre, sports, and to grow in my faith. I personally don’t mind the core classes because I went in undecided so it gave me a chance to make sure I wanted to Major in History and minor in English. The teachers always have office hours and Academic Support is always good to look over a paper or go over material for an exam. There’s always activities to do on campus on the weekends, whether it’s a sporting event or a CAB event. I just went to visit campus just because I missed the school and now I can’t wait to go back.
