Wentworth Institute of Technology Reviews
I chose Wentworth not only because of the many possibilities and opportunities the school provides, but because of the many positive stories and experiences that I have been told by alumni and friends of alumni. In my experience, it seems like a great learning environment. The staff are all friendly and helpful if you have any questions. The campus is small but that's the beauty of it because all of the school's buildings are within a 10 minute walk from each other so there is no need to stress about getting too much exercise! There are countless activities and stores within walking and biking distance of the school if you decide to wander and explore the great city of Boston. Move in day was a breeze and the staff was very helpful and organized to make it as easy as possible. My recommendation would be to consider Wentworth because everything from the location to the academic possibilities are amazing.
Wentworth Institute of Technology is a small Engineering and Design based institution that is quickly rising as one of the more respected universities in the region in terms of job placement. Wentworth gained university status this year, and as a current engineering student at Wentworth, I would recommend any student who is serious about their career to considering attending Wentworth. The professors work at Wentworth to teach, not to do research, which makes them particularly invested in their students. The Co-op program also sets Wentworth apart, requiring students to work real companies during their time at Wentworth allowing students to potentially leave Wentworth with a degree and a year’s worth of work experience between three different companies. The social life and "Party Scene" many students look for in their college search is not great, but you are living in Boston. Dorms could use some improvement, but overall, I highly recommend Wentworth for its educational value.
I have gained so much knowledge studying in the Construction Managment Field. The hands on labs, co-op opportunities have been a great privilege. The professors are great, helpful and willing to work with you all the time. The campus is friendly and easy to get around. So much to do in Boston on time off!
