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.
Review Wentworth Institute of Technology
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!
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.
