Experiencing Our Community
Worcester State University is situated on a 58-acre campus in a residential neighborhood in Worcester—a vibrant college city home to more than 30,000 students. You’ll find it’s the perfect blend of culture, community and academics. Our campus offers state-of-the-art facilities, such as the Ghosh Science and Technology Center, the Fuller Theater, an art gallery, and modern residence halls. Sheehan Hall, a new residence hall and dining center opening in 2014, and Wellness Center, opening in 2016, will expand our campus community, giving our students the perfect blend of academics and campus life.
Students at WSU are committed to taking full advantage of learning inside and outside of the classroom.
- Undergraduate research is hands-on and celebrated through the annual Celebration of Scholarship and Creativity. Internships provide real-world experience. WSU students have interned at UMASS Medical Center, Genzyme, and Staples, just to name a few.
- Community-based learning inspires our students to make an impact on the local and global communities. Last year, WSU faculty and students partnered with over 380 organizations
- Study away is encouraged for all students. With over 200 affilliations, students travel to places like Argentina, Austrailia, Belize, Germany, Greece, and South Korea, as well as around the United States through the National Student Exchange.
- Our Commonwealth Honors Program is one of the oldest and one of the largest in the Massachusetts state university system.
Commuter and residents students alike complement their WSU education by getting involved in over 30 clubs and organizations, Division III NCAA athletics, intramural sports, and our dynamic visual and performing arts programs. Annual campus events such as Welcome Week, Homecoming, Senior Capping and Spring Week are some of the most favorite traditions.
