Worcester State University Reviews
Worcester State has been great so far. The various departments and professors are super helpful and I've always gotten prompt repsonses from them when there's an issue. They really want to see young adults going to school and are super helpful about keeping you on track. The campus is easy to navigate and the classes are pretty cool. I would definitely recommend to someone who wanted a cheap, well-rounded school!
Overall my experience with WSU was average. It all depends on what you are looking for when deciding on a college. I wish I had looked more into the career preparation that WSU offers. The resources available to students are extremely limited. Job fairs consisted of employers such as Honey Farms and Express which were looking for part-time employees not graduates with a specific skill set. I was in the Business/Accounting program and most resources were limited. There are two business clubs on campus (Enactus & Business Club). That was pretty much it. As for events and conferences, there wasn't many pertaining to my field. A lot of these events pertained to Science majors. Before choosing WSU I would research your specific program and what is offered outside of your regular classroom environment.
Big enough to do great things and small enough for everyone to be involved. Terrific athletic teams on which to play and for which to root. First class student government learning how to implement solutions-based action and involvement of all sectors. Great to see all the recent improvements to the campus facilities and the connection and celebration of the history of the university representing the Heart of the Commonwealth and all New England!
