I am not an athlete myself here at Wentworth but I know a lot of the athletes and they are all happy that they chose Wentworth. Most of them attend Wentworth on scholarships for their chosen sport, which helps a great deal. The coaches and the teams as a whole all seem to be great and there have never been any problems regarding athletics. We're definitely not the best school in the country or even the state when it comes to athletics, but with our school spirit and the intelligence of the athletes, I would say that the athletics at Wentworth are worth it if you are an athlete stuck between choosing colleges!
Review Wentworth Institute of Technology
I love Wentworth Institute of Technology, the location is perfect. It is right in the heart of Boston, so there is no need for a vehicle. One can walk anywhere or use Boston's great public transportation system to get around which is wonderful. As far as I can tell the Academics are great, if someone were having trouble keeping up Wentworth has a Center for Academic Excellence which is designed to help the student excel. The Professors are willing to work with their students to help them. They have a great public safety department and police all over campus to help keep students safe.
I visited Wentworth Institute of Technology as a prospective Freshman. I was impressed with the small class size. The ratio of student to faculty is 15 to one. There is a focus on engineering, and other tech fields, which is what I am looking for. The location is great, right off of Boylston St in Boston. There are five other colleges right in the area, and I would be able to take classes at any of them. I also ate in the dining hall, and there was a good variety of foods. The dormitories are clean, and everything is within a small footprint. It is an expensive school costing more than 50K/year, and that is the only negative that I can see.
