Worcester at a Glance
With its industrial heritage, Worcester and the surrounding area are filled with history, beautiful architecture, and a real can-do spirit. Thirteen colleges and universities, great restaurants and cultural offerings have given Worcester a well-deserved reputation as "the other college town" in Massachusetts.
It's a great time to study in Worcester, too: the town has been undergoing a major revitalization, with $1 billion invested in downtown development.
Worcester is full of energy and opportunity - for both work and play.
