Student Life

Funeral Homes

Many out-of-state students work and live in local funeral homes in an effort to gain valuable experience, save on living costs, and earn a nominal wage. Worsham College students have set a high standard of performance in the past and are eagerly sought by area employers.


Some students elect to live in apartments affording the student more personal time attending the College. The Registrar’s Office maintains a list of students interested in sharing apartments.

Private Homes

The Center of Concern is an agency that pairs Worsham College Students with clients in Wheeling and neighboring townships who have rooms for rent in their homes, complete with kitchen privileges and laundry facilities. This option offers the student the personal freedom of an apartment at a lower cost.

Worsham College Statement

Dear Students,

2020 continues to be a year that challenges us in most every aspect of life.  As we grapple with the uncertainty of a pandemic, we are now faced with what can feel at times like the unraveling of our country. 

As I have taken some time to reflect about this current situation, I was reminded about what drew me to both law and funeral service.  It was a desire to help those in need.  The profession you have chosen begins upon a foundation that every person in death deserves to be treated with dignity and respect.  We do not see differences in death, in fact we realize it is the great equalizer. 

I am proud that our profession begins upon that basis because with that we must also see that every family we serve also deserves dignity and respect.  We are in a unique position to understand suffering, sympathy and empathy.  It is with that understanding that we can stand with those who are suffering from the threat and the consequences of violence, economic despair, disease, and death.  Our values and ideals, as funeral professionals, inspire and direct us to dedicate ourselves to caring for those who are in need.

As you navigate this complicated and complex world, I encourage you to do so with vigor and empathy, with great care for those who are most vulnerable, and with the values that bind the Worsham community in our unyielding commitment to serving the common good.
