Assumption College

Worcester, MAwww.assumption.edu
Assumption College is a Catholic liberal arts school in New England's second-largest city, Worcester, Mass., and about 45 miles from Boston. Worcester itself is a college town, and Assumption's 2,500 undergrads can take classes at the 11 other schools that participate in the Colleges of Worcester Consortium. Assumption also offers combined degree programs in partnership with universities around the U.S., including Duke and Notre Dame. With about 40 majors and nearly 50 minors to choose from, however, most students should find plenty to study on their own campus, as well as at a satellite campus in Rome, where sophomores and up can spend a semester of study. But student culture is vibrant back at the campus in Worcester, where 90% of students reside for all four years. Spiritual groups focused on prayer are a staple of student life, as are movie nights and a yearly spring concert; past performers include Sarah Bareilles and Third Eye Blind.
