Truly a failing instituion. Assumption College has really become the laughing stock of the Worcester College Consortium. I seriously don’t know how they stay open with the amount of kids who transfer out. Academics are below average for the money being spent and professors could care less about their job. Food is very sickening. Police prohibit anyone from having fun, Assumption feels more like a detention facility.
Terrible. Classes are easy, professors are not helpful. You might as well be in a massive lecture hall. Campus is decrepit, everyone is super cliquey since it is so small, worse than high school. Campus police and RAs are overly strict, the party scene is awful since there is no off campus housing. Any "party" is in the apartments which is pretty much and insane amount of kids squished into a dorm sized room. "Parties" also get shut down by campus police before 12. Food sucks here too. Do not come, most kids transfer. Retention rate is very low which is why they do not publicze that on tours or open houses.
Everything about the "college" aspect of AC is flat-out terrible. The classes are boring. The professors try to act like they like their job (but you can tell they hate it) or act cruel and superior to their students. Based on their life stories, I am convinced that some of them are actually crazy. Don't get fooled by the tours, when everyone is screaming crap like, "We're so concerned with community! Community means friendship, and you're a part of it!" Most People here are clicky and judgmental as hell. There is no "community." Others are stuck-up, full of themselves, or try to act cool, when they're just being stupid. Lots of parties go on here, so if you're into that we'd love to have you. I guess if you STRONGLY feel this college is right for you then it probably is (honestly, if you feel that way about any college you should go there). If you don't know where to go and Assumption didn't feel like anything special to you, I'd look past it. There's a reason it's a small campus.

The small classes allow for students to engage on a personal level with professors and connect better with other students. The campus is a tight knit community, and the location is slightly away from the city part of Worcester, so students feel more safe and "at home".
Assumption has a beautiful campus. Different activities are planned for Friday and Saturday nights, so there is always something to do on the weekends. Some of the buildings are nice, but some are outdated. The academics can be challenging, but the professor are always willing to help. There are a lot of cliques amongst students.
The faculty and staff with whom I've interacted have shown a sincere regard for my well being well beyond the classroom. The sense of community at Assumption College is unparalleled.
I loved that Assumption was a small school and I was able to have the a good relationship with my professors. I wanted to be known by them and not just a number.
I love the community and classes. I believe Assumption provides great opportunities for work experience. One thing the school could improve on is freedom. I believe the school can be a bit strict and I think since we are adults we deserve freedom.
I really enjoy Assumption College! The professors are amazing, and they really want to help you succeed. Classes are small so you can ask questions and go to office hours and the professors know your name. The campus is beautiful! in the fall the trees look so pretty. Sometimes it can feel pretty small and sometimes cliquey, but also a lot of people are friendly to everyone and you can definitely find your place, there are all types of people here.
My experience at Assumption College has all around been very positive. I do not have anything to complain about. The student to teacher ratio is great and the opportunities here are beneficial to everyone. They have a really strong academic support center with peers that are very smart and excel in the subjects that they are tutoring, and the library has a lot of other great resources as well. The campus is very clean. The dining hall offers a variety of different meals every day, and it compatible for every person, despite if you have an allergy or eating preference.
Assumption college has great professors, decent resources for life after college, a friendly helping community, and great sport programs. Food can definitely be improved. Residence halls could be improved as well.
I loved Assumption! Just the right size for me. Great community and atmosphere. Can always find something to do. The food could be better but it isn't as bad as other schools. Excellent professors who actually help you. Good DII sports, especially the football and women's basketball program.
I really had a hard time at the school when it came to friend making, the academics and everything else. I stayed almost three years was put on academic probation twice and left the school. It is a drinking school and that what kids did three nights a week. Students were constantly being sent to the hospital for being drunk. It was a bad environment.
My experience so far at Assumption College has been amazing. Everyone here is so welcoming, it's so easy to fit in. I feel comfortable in every class. Classes are capped off at thirty students, so you're never in a class with a ton of people. This creates an environment where you're more than just a number to your professor. Assumption College has been one of my best decisions so far.
I love the campus and the overall feel of the college! I have enjoyed the majority of my classes so far as well. There are many very nice and helpful professors who genuinely care about your studies and plans for the future. Biggest downsides are the overall price is quite expensive and there are not a ton of options for food or activities on campus, but it is very close to Worcester! Overall it has been a great experience!
I came to Assumption because I liked how it was a smaller campus that still had a welcoming and fun community. The friends that I've made here are the best I've ever had and I'm closer with more professors than I ever thought. My only complaint is that time is going way to fast.
I love the community aspect here, I have met so many amazing people through campus ministry and chorale. I have always wanted to go to Catholic school, and I definitely call Assumption College my home.

I love how much of a community this campus is. It has a small enough student population to be familiar with a good number of people while it is large enough to be able to meet new people everyday. Everyone is so giving and are willing to help anyone at any moment. Also, the professors are extremely helpful and are willing to work with a student until they feel confident in their abilities in that course. There are also an abundance of resources available for every aspect of life that students do not always know about. One thing that is certain is that no one will ever have to struggle on their own, because a helping hand is somewhere near.
Love the classes and courses. Professors are always engaging.
I haven't used the alumni network but plan to do so.
