Student Experience

Your four years here is a chance to transform your life—and there’s nothing more transformative than being part of the Assumption community.

Be who you are. Become what you imagine.

As part of the Assumption community, you will do much more than broaden your knowledge. You’ll challenge your perspectives, test your abilities, leap outside your comfort zone, make lifelong friends and expand your possibilities.

Inclusive, supportive, and opportunity-rich, Assumption is a place where you’ll feel comfortable being yourself, exploring your potential, and pursuing every interest. You’ll achieve more than you ever thought possible, and embark on an exciting journey to a fulfilling, rewarding, and impactful life.

Everything you need to learn, grow, and achieve

Assumption offers round-the-clock access to opportunity. No matter what interests you, you’ll find a club, class, event, or resource that allows you to do it. Study at Assumption’s Rome campus for a semester. Take yoga and martial arts classes. Complete a life-changing internship in Worcester. Join the philosophy club, or create a new club with your friends. If you can dream it, at Assumption, you can do it.  

Maximum support in all that you do

Assumption cultivates an environment in which you’ll feel at ease expressing yourself, exploring your passions, and discovering new possibilities. You’ll be surrounded by diverse and interesting people who support and encourage you in every endeavor, from roommates, teammates, and classmates to career counselors, faculty advisors, coaches, and ministry staff.

Assumption is small—and that’s a big deal.

With 2,000 undergraduates, Assumption is a university where each student is known and valued. You’ll forge close, personal relationships with peers and professors whose ideas and backgrounds will enrich your education—and help illuminate your path.

Enjoy a stunning and vibrant campus

There’s a good reason nearly 90% of our undergraduates live on campus all four years. Our campus is beautiful, comfortable, rich with amenities, and buzzing with activity around the clock.
