Many colleges and universities want you to choose between a meaningful life and a rewarding career. At Assumption, we believe you deserve both.
For 120 years, Assumption students have been known for curiosity in the classroom and beyond. They’re known for their commitment to community. Most of all, they’re known for their gritty determination— for the way Catholic liberal education universally speaks to every person’s hunger to ask life’s enduring questions and their ambition for rewarding careers.
Our job is not to simply teach you, but to learn from you. You make us better when you ask the hard questions. You grow, and we all do, when we engage in study for its own sake.
14% of our incoming 2023 students identify as Hispanic, and 13% identify as Black. Our students come from many different states and more than a dozen countries outside of the U.S.!

Athletics Are a Thriving Part of Our Campus
