Wentworth Institute of Technology Reviews
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.
Wentworth is definitely a great college for those interested in the STEM field. The impeccable reputation the school has built for itself is indicative of it's dedicated professors and encouraging staff. The upper rank faculty such as President Mark A. Thompson are driven towards helping the students get better and better. They care about Mental health and push to make the learning experience diverse, in-depth and easy on the stress so as to not burn out the students. The school is in the heart of Boston and is a part of the colleges of the Fenway. As a result, the students can easily mingle with students from the surrounding colleges. Wentworth is a very welcoming environment full of story waiting to happen for all new comers that seek an education.
