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.

Overall the school is great, it's in a great part of Boston with lots of things to do which makes up for a lack of things to do on campus. The academics are challenging but that is the nature of the subjects offered. Some of the professors are great and will make their class enjoyable, most classes are small and the professors can actually get to know their students and help them understand the material. If you don't have a good professor or simply struggling with the material there is plenty of help available from organized study groups to one on one tutoring sessions. The school is fairly racially diverse however only about 20% of the student body is female. There isn't really a "party scene", you can still find parties but mostly people have fun within their friend groups. My only real complaint about the school is the food, there is little variety with what is served, the good food is only out for a short period of time and I often find myself eating off campus.
Wentworth is by far a great technical school, but what it is slowly becoming more well known for is its Architecture Program. This college puts its architecture students through hell, and you'll never be more grateful. If this is what you are passionate about, Wentworth wants you to prove it. You have to earn your spot in this program, and that may mean numerous all-nighters, no sleep, and no life outside of school, but you're here because something told you this was the major you wanted to pursue. You learn so much in the first year alone, without even realizing it. All the Architecture students here did not choose this major on a whim. We are students who dream of a future in this field and are determined, passionate, and driven, so if you want to know whether Wentworth is the right fit for you, answer one question, are you?
