  • Ninety-five percent of graduates from the Class of 2014 were employed or accepted into programs for further study.

  • To help commemorate the 25th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), professors from the interactive media department unveiled a new virtual reality game. The program attempts to simulate what it's like to suffer from Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD).
  • Worcester was named No. 1 in the U.S. for its community farmer's markets and was the only city in New England to make the list. (It's a great way to get fresh, nutritious foods while supporting our local community.)
