    I am a freshman CIS major at Wentworth. The people and professors are great. The professors are top of their fields and most of them are passionate about teaching, especially in the Business Department. However, the food is terrible and It costs a lot of money to attend. The school does not offer enough money for merit scholarships. Education here is some of the best you can find, but make sure the high cost is something you're willing to deal with. Boston is a fun place and is a very nice college environment. Take advantage of all the fun things to do around the area!

    The five years I attended Wentworth were some of the best years of my life. It is the perfect school for people who are willing to work really really hard to earn a degree. It has very focused curriculum, and I would not recommend it for anyone who is unsure of the field they want to pursue. I had a wonderful experience socially and academically. Co-op is a huge plus. After graduation, I was hired by the top architecture firm in the state! Wentworth in a nutshell: easy to get into, very hard to graduate from. Wentworth instills work ethic in its students and companies love to hire Wentworth grads for this reason. It is one of the best colleges for anyone seeking to enter the construction or design field.
    I am a junior in architecture. I have found that you have to go out of your way to seek a well rounded social integration. The campus tries to improves it's community, and while it is nice, it needs to be improved. It is not quite diverse with its representation of POC, and LGBTQIA+ students, but it is somewhat there. I have found that you must be determined if you want to go here, you must seek excellence and strive for it.

    Wentworth also has some of the best professors around, they are very well-educated and well diverse in their studies. This school is focused on academics and success, not partying and extreme socialization.

    In all, I adore this school, and if you have the determination, you can achieve so much.
