LIFE AT WSU

  • Life at WSU

    Life on the Worcester State University campus is a perfect blend of community, culture, academics—and fun. Whether you are a resident student or a commuter student, you’ll have many opportunities to make friends, learn new skills, and discover new interests.

    Our campus is always a whirl of social and cultural activities, including films, live music and arts performances, speakers, sports, fundraisers, and community-wide special events. We find plenty to celebrate on campus, including Homecoming Weekend, Winter Week, Commuter Appreciation Day, the Multicultural Festival, and many other events throughout the year.

    On campus, you’ll find:
    • Student involvement and leadership. Choose from more than 30 different cultural, social, and academic clubs and organizations.
    • Leadership development programs. We offer many opportunities to get involved and develop your leadership skills.
    • Healthy, hearty food. You’ll have campus dining options to suit every taste, from cafés to food courts to an all-you-care-to-eat dining hall.
    • Lancer athletics. Our men’s and women’s teams compete in NCAA Division III, and we also have 10 intramural sports.
    • Student services. Extensive resources include academics and career services, commuter, disability, counseling, and wellness services, campus ministry, and more.

    Worcester State University is located in the residential northwestern side of Worcester, which is the second largest city in Massachusetts and home to 11 other colleges and universities. Our 58-acre campus features state-of-the-art facilities like our Ghosh Science and Technology Center and the Fuller Theater. Expanded green spaces, modern residence halls, and the Mary Dolphin Cosgrove Art gallery will soon be joined by a new Wellness Center (opening in 2016).
