Western New England is an excellent choice if you are looking for large university opportunity with a small college atmosphere. Classes are small and only taught by professors with PHDs who are entirely invested in their students and will know you by name within a few weeks. The curriculum is in depth and aimed at preparing you for real world employment, or to continue your education. WNEU is well managed, with many opportunities to grow through clubs, activities, community involvement, and options to study abroad. The campus is a must see, offering state of the art facilities and technology with impeccably manicured grounds and an amazingly clean campus. The college offers many scholarships to students who excel academically. As a second year Junior, I am having a tremendous college experience and highly recommend you put WNEU high on your list, and please come and take a tour, as I cannot possibly tell you all this University has to offer. Good luck in your search!
The campus housing is great! The dorms are the same size as your bedroom back home and we have staff that come in and tidy up the bathrooms and hallways so it is always kept clean. We also have safety room checks every couple months to ensure that we do not have anything of hazard in our rooms. The social atmosphere is incredible! The RA and other staff host events to get everyone together which provides great communication for those who are either shy or afraid to make friends. Everyone in the hall respects each other, we have hall meetings that allow us to give feedback, get to know each other and pretty much hang out. Most of my friendships started from the hall meetings, the girls on my floor are very friendly and we all get along very well, and have become close friends and pretty much do everything together now. Everything in our campus housing is at a convenience, the laundry room is not too far from your floor, and if you are lucky it is right on your floor. Our classes are not far from our housing, sometimes two to five minutes but not much of a walk. The housing process was at ease, the staff made it very quick and easy to get into our dorms and to get ourselves established to our surroundings, and I am more than happy that I did not have to wait in a long line to obtain the keys for my dorm.

The professors here are very understanding and they help to ensure that you understand the material and are prepared for the next quiz or exam. What I love most is how quick my professors are with responding, if I am having trouble on an assignment I can email them at the very moment and receive a response no late than an hour which is incredible! The professors really dedicate their time into the students to ensure that we are not just doing the work for the grade but understanding our work and knowing that how we did is what we are being graded on.
