It is a beautiful small town in Central Massachusetts. It is close to Worcester and about 45 minutes from Boston.
Not much to do here. It was very hard to live here as a student. There wasn't anything to do, all my friends live far away. If I wanted to walk somewhere it would be so far. The community is wonderful but I wish it was more inclusive and had more activities.
