The Acceptance Letter ... You're In!

The journey here has been unforgettable, and now it's time to make a very important decision. You're probably asking yourself:

  • What university will I call home for the next four years?
  • Where will I explore my path in life?
  • Where will I make friends who I will have for the rest of my life?
  • What university will prepare me for a successful future?

The answer: Assumption University

We have said yes to you - now we hope that you will say yes to us.

A Special Message to Our Future Hounds Regarding COVID-19

As the COVID-19 situation continues to change rapidly, we want you to know that Assumption is committed to doing what we can to help you during this difficult time. As a result, we are taking the following steps to ease the stress of the university search process on you and your family.

  1. The Assumption University Board of Trustees have authorized the creation of a $3 million fund to assist current students and incoming members of the Class of 2024 whose families are facing financial hardship as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. Learn more about applying for assistance.
  2. We have extended our enrollment deposit deadline to June 1 to allow for some breathing room in terms of making a final decision.
  3. We have decreased our enrollment deposit from $400 to $50 because we want to do what we can to reduce the expenses you need to think about over the next couple of months. We hope this will provide a little extra cash in your pocket at a time when you may need it most.
  4. We are developing creative ways to connect with you virtually since experiencing campuses and connecting with current students, faculty, and other community members is an essential step in determining the right fit school for you.

Assumption is a close-knit community and especially in trying times, we seek ways to support each other. This will be just the first step in our commitment to your Assumption education and journey.

Shining Their Light

Peter Serencsics

Economics 2017
Quality Control Analyst, American Transit Insurance Company

Assumption connected me with alumni at American Transit Insurance Company that resulted in a job!

During my internship, I worked with all of their departments to gain an understanding of how the insurance business works. I was well prepared to take on New York City as I began my post-grad career at the company that I interned with.
Sean O'Rourke

Accounting 2020
Business Tax Services Department, Deloitte & Touche Boston Office

At the Accounting Career Fair, I networked with several different companies - including Deloitte.

Because of Assumption, I have the understanding of the important accounting principles necessary to do the job, but I was also given the skills that go beyond the field of accounting which allowed me to distinguish myself from other applicants.
Kathryn Graydon

English 2016
Interactive Media Producer, Boston College

The Broadcast Journalism and TV Productions classes taught me so much about my future career.

In my experience at the College and since I’ve graduated, I’ve also learned that it’s okay to make mistakes. Mistakes are something you learn from, so don’t be afraid to make them.
Mia-Michelle Russell

Art History 2015
Senior Museum Educator and Art Educator, New York Historical Society / Resident Curator, Canaan Baptist Church of Christ

Assumption has prepared and molded me for success in all aspects of my unique field.

I am thankful for the transferable skills that I've developed in art, art history, and history, and for my professors teaching me how to make art history fun, fascinating, and engaging!
Alexander Richardson

Human Services and Rehabilitation Studies 2019
Intern, Pawtucket Red Sox

I want to give back to the community and give back to the youth since they are the next generation.

I want to help youths ideally through sports. Whatever I can do to help people is what I want to pursue for a career. Through Assumption’s partnership with the Red Sox minor league baseball team, I’ve been given this opportunity.
Natalia Kaczor

Chemistry 2020
Research & Development / Quality Control Intern, Randolph Products

Assumption provides opportunities to form relationships that can be pivotal in your career.

From the moment you step on campus, join clubs, expand your social horizons, and do not be afraid to network and attend school functions. Assumption is your home away from home so try new things and have fun because these four years fly by faster than you expect!
William Armstrong

Neuroscience 2020
Undergraduate Research Intern, UMass Medical School Neurobiology Department

At my internship, I experienced what it’s like to work in a medical research lab.

I worked with Professor Lemons researching genes involved with neuronal development in c. elegans. The labs I had to take for many classes helped me gain hands-on experience with the techniques I would later need for my internship.
