Love the vibes. Lots of welcoming people. Cute campus, and lovely location. The professors are nice and the campus is super safe.
Don’t bother going here. Their marketing will fool you into making this school look like something it’s not. Assumption is basically high school 2.0 but with Alc and s**. It’s racist, homophobic and overall the “community feel” they bank on, is a community only rich New England born kids can be apart of. This is not the college for you if you are looking for the classic college experience. I transferred out my sophomore year and since then assumption Hs been getting flamed by the news. They don’t have a great reputation and the money to go here isn’t worth it. And i was a part of all the groups on campus and had a lot of friends, but realized the school is not competitive in what it offers it’s students in any regard.
As a STEM out of state students I had a horrible experience. No professors made acclamations for me even though i was three hours behind of EST, which meant if i couldn’t wake up at 5 am and watch a zoom class, I would miss class and be punished for it. This school is not accommodating and I learned nothing while having to take science classes online .
Only took a couple of classes online. But enjoyed them and felt I got a great deal out of them. Helps when you're working a job to be able to have flexibility with online classes.
Great Academics. Professors are very involved in the progress of students. The campus is beautiful with competitive sports teams. There is a lot to do around campus especially with sporting events, but the City of Worcester offers plenty of dining, bars and now Paw Sox.
Assumption University is a second home where you can connect with students and faculty, make new friends. Become a part of the games on the field.
Great experience all around. Fun campus great people, really helpful staff.
The campus is beautiful in the fall.

My experience and opportunities at Assumption are something I am very grateful for. As a commuter student from the city of Worcester, I originally viewed Assumption as just an institution to take classes. However, after attending the university for just a year and a half, it is much more that just buildings with classrooms. It is a community that has welcomed me and pushed me to be a better student. The professors are really personal and actually want to learn your name which is really reassuring, and classes are a comfortable size as to not overwhelm a college student. The campus itself feels like a small town within a city and is a great little home away from home. Even with the transition to online classes during these unprecedented times, Assumption has stuck to their mission and push for success. I am very proud to be a Greyhound.
Despite such unprecedented times, Assumption has made the transition to online learning smooth. Administration always stays in contact with students, staff and family to make sure every one is on the same page. Assumption also makes a solid attempt to hear the voices of students and what works best for them through surveys and forums. Professors have done an outstanding job adapting to this new normalcy. Whether hybrid or fully remote, the instructors seem to have everyone at the same pace. As a biology major and remote learner, I unfortunately miss the opportunity to experience a hands on laboratory environment, however my lab instructors have put in full effort to get the full effect. Assumption has stuck to their mission despite have to do a 180 in classroom conditions.
I am attending the second half of my first semester remotely due to COVID-19. Although I would prefer to be on campus, my remote experience is going quite well. I am quite disciplined so I am managing to do very well. I keep in close contact with my professors and advisor on a frequent basis virtually. Assumption is especially good about communicating well with the school community.
I live assumption for the people honestly. They are so nice and helpful. As a first year I definitely felt like I was at a home away from home.
Online has been pretty good. My professors are very understanding and are willing to work with me if I need help.
Professors adapted very well to the sudden need for online based classes. Many promptly recorded lectures, modified syllabuses, and changed assignments to fit the new situation.
The only online classes that I have done have been because of corona virus. Though they were rushed and unexpected, they were absolutely terrible and nonproductive. I learned almost nothing from them. The only bright side was that the teachers were good about trying to stay connected and responding.
Assumption is pretty much what you would expect to get from a small private catholic college. The amount of classes offered is small but decent, dorms and food could be better, and the sports teams do ok. But it delivers on a smaller closer community that you expect from a smaller school.
It was a very community-oriented school with a lot of different clubs. The school had good professors and good courses. It was a good school for Community service learning and for the major on Human Services and Rehabilitation Studies.
I only took online classes when we went online due to the pandemic. There were definitely some hiccups, but that is to be expected when transitioning material from in person to online. For the pressure and last minute notice, the online experience got the job done.
