Location
Worcester, Massachusetts is the second largest city in New England, only 1 hour from Boston and 3 hours from New York City, and an education hub with 13 colleges/universities and 38,000 college students. Worcester's location in central Massachusetts is one of its greatest assets, since the cities of Boston, Providence, Hartford and Springfield (and the terrific prospects they offer in the media, financial, medical and insurance fields) are only a short drive away.
