Our in-person COMPASS Orientation has been reorganized to take place virtually this year on select dates in July. This online event is still a great way to help ease your transition from high school to university as you meet faculty, select course offerings, meet upper-class student orientation leaders, and interact with your new classmates!
Admitted Student Portal
We have created an Admitted Student Portal, a virtual space designed and personalized just for you and your interests at Assumption. You can view various decision statuses, access your financial aid award letter, and discover more about academics, student life, and the thriving city of Worcester. You can also view all the virtual opportunities available to you including fun events and contests!
Virtual Financial Aid Conversation
Assumption is dedicated to providing a clear understanding of what your education will cost — and committed to helping you understand your options to finance it. As an accepted student, you can have a Virtual Financial Aid Conversation with one of our knowledgeable counselors to discuss your personal award letter. You can also watch our Financial Aid Information Session Webinar and Commonly Asked Financial Aid Questions Webinar.
Virtual Visit Opportunities
Experiencing university campuses and connecting with current students, faculty, and other community members is an essential step in determining the right fit school for you. We have created new and meaningful ways for you to learn remotely what it would be like to be a Greyhound through opportunities to speak with admission counselors and current students.
Shining Their Light
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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!
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.
