About Assumption College

Assumption College, a Catholic institution sponsored by the Augustinians of the Assumption and rooted in the Catholic intellectual tradition, strives to form graduates known for critical intelligence, thoughtful citizenship and compassionate service. We pursue these ambitious goals through a curriculum grounded in the liberal arts and extending to the domain of professional studies. Enlivened by the Catholic affirmation of the harmony of faith and reason, we aim, by the pursuit of the truth, to transform the minds and hearts of students. Assumption favors diversity and ecumenically welcomes all who share its goals.

Campus information

Worcester is New England’s second-largest city and an exciting, metropolitan location in which to live, learn and discover. Visit the City of Worcester Web site or the Central Massachusetts Convention and Visitors Bureau site to get a feel for what’s happening in and around the city, find accommodations and restaurants, or learn about places to visit in the area.

Greater Worcester is a college town with about 30,000 students living here during the academic year. Assumption participates in the Colleges of Worcester Consortium and our students can cross-register at 11 other area colleges and universities for academic credit, participate in many campus events at those schools, and access other Consortium college libraries.

Just 45 miles from Boston and Providence, travel to and from Worcester is very convenient. The Boston commuter rail runs a number of times each day and there is also regular bus service to both cities. The Boston international airport and the Providence airport are each an hour away and Worcester has a regional airport.

The west side of Worcester, where Assumption is located, is a beautiful, residential neighborhood. With convenient, free shuttle service, Assumption students can take advantage of the many excellent shopping, dining, cultural, and recreational opportunities that are located just minutes from campus. In addition, because Worcester is an important manufacturing, insurance, biotechnology research and transportation center, there are numerous internships and employment opportunities.
