    I have loved my time at Western New England University, from the professors to the campus, everything is just so welcoming. The campus itself is very beautiful, and during spring time especially so, as there are these gorgeous trees in the center of campus that bloom a lovely shade of pink, making the morning walk to class very lovely. The professors are all very helpful, with many staying late hours after class to offer their time to help students out with their work. All in all, its a great school and I love it!

    I was very impressed with the tour of the campus, the credentials of the professors and the reputation of the University for Engineering. The dinning system looked great - was very excited about the athletic complex and the integration of student athletes. I am excited to attend this fall!
    As I walked the campus on tour as an incoming freshman I fell in love with the student life. Everyone was active and loud and enjoyed the live music from the band. Everyone was super friendly and welcoming. What I loved most was that none of that changed throughout the school year. There was constant events going on that would be packed with enthusiastic people and it was always a beautiful experience. Aside from that the campus itself is beautiful, it’s not too big nor too small. I loved every detail from dining hall, library, bookstore, residence halls, and learning buildings. Western New England has so much to offer every student that walks through campus.
