Your four years here is a chance to transform your life—and there’s nothing more transformative than being part of the Assumption community.
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.
Enrich your experience through cocurriculars
Participate in student government. Join the kickball team or running club. Write for Muse, Assumption’s literary magazine. With nearly 60 clubs and organizations, you’ll have ample opportunity to exercise your mind and body.
Nurture your spiritual growth
Catholic students, students of other faiths, and those still searching all find at Assumption an open and welcoming environment in which to explore their spiritual side. Assumption offers myriad ways to connect more deeply with God, the world, and oneself.
Have fun while staying fit
From figure skating and floor hockey to Latin dance and Ping-Pong, Assumption has a broad range of intramural clubs and sports that enable you to compete, stay fit, hone your skills, and make great friends.
Change others’ lives—as well as your own
Fostering your commitment to improve your life and the lives of others is central to Assumption’s mission. You can put your ideas into action in the ways that matter to you most, from promoting sustainable practices on campus to rebuilding homes in Alabama on a service trip.
Benefit from big-city opportunity
Live on a beautiful, tree-lined 185-acre campus—while enjoying life in a dynamic city. Home to 35,000 university students, Worcester has plenty to offer undergraduates, including high-quality internships, stellar restaurants, and world-class entertainment.
Help make the world more sustainable
Assumption is committed to creating a healthier planet. We use a high percentage of renewable energy; have significantly ramped up our recycling and composting capacity; and offer a broad range of academic, research, and service opportunities for students passionate about conservation.
