4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: School so far has been great. The transition hasn't been too hard. The professors are great, however, if you are lost in the material tutors can't really help.

Overall Experience: Not really involved in the process yet as of now. But hearing about it from peers, sounds like the school really cares about your post education endeavors.

2 College Sophomore

Greek Life: The greek life at Wentworth is pretty nonexistent. The is one coed fraternity that I know of but I'm not sure if they even have their own house. Greek students aren't really viewed any differently than non Greek students because to get into the fraternity you have to have a gpa of above 3.5 I believe so the members of the Greek scene aren't really viewed as the type of greek kids that might be seen at a southern school like Alabama or Missouri. In general the ones I know are very pleasant people who just wanted to get involved with the community more.

Athletics: The athletic facilities at the school for sports teams seem ok but nothing great. The facilities that we do have are very nice but we are missing some facilities. We have no baseball field so no one can go watch the baseball team play because they play all away games. Also the Wentworth home hockey rink is over at BU which is fine for the players but its pretty far for fans to go just to catch a game. The basketball team has been doing well this year and they have a good fan section. However, I think Wentworth really needs a football team. I feel like if there was a football team a ton of kids would go to the home games to root on the team. It would really bring the school community a lot closer together than it already is.

Overall Experience: So far at Wentworth I have had a very positive experience. Educationally I wasn't sure what to expect going in because Wentworth didn't seem to have to high of standards for admission but since day one I have been very impressed with the teaching, the students devotion to learning, and the course material was more challenging than I expected but still manageable. All of the professors and students here are very friendly. I haven't met someone here yet that I wouldn't want to have a conversation with or eat lunch with.

Overall Experience: I love it here !

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The campus police are always on campus in areas that they need to be. The health center on campus also accommodates to students' needs

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: So far I am very pleased with my Wentworth experience. Classes are challenging but not impossible to do well in and the professors show sincere interest in helping students.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The housing process was relatively easy and the suites are much better than I originally expected.

1 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life really does not exist at Wentworth. From what I know there may be academic-based Greek life but nothing too popular.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Although we offer plenty of varsity sports I feel that there is not enough publicity around campus for games or matches.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The campus is great. Wentworth is the perfect size school for what I was looking for. The professors know how to make the material easy to understand and relate to.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Campus crime is relatively high at Wentworth just because we are right in Roxbury in Boston, so there is a lot of crime that happens right around us but it never really affects our campus as a whole. I have always felt personally safe on campus. Wentworth takes a lot of special security measures, like text alerts and they have guards in the residence halls at night. The police and safety services at our school do a good job, but they take their job too seriously. I wish they were a bit more lenient and understanding of the whole college scene but I guess it's better to be safe than sorry.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I could go on forever about the career prospects and the value of a degree from Wentworth Institute of Technology. The career prospects from Wentworth are outstanding; you do co-op for usually two semesters or more and you are pretty much guaranteed a job, sometimes before you even graduate. A degree from this school means everything; when people hear you are graduating from Wentworth they usually applaud you and some will offer you a job on the spot or refer you to someone they know immediately. The alumni are pretty involved and the employers recruiting on campus are great, especially when there's job fairs, which happen often. The career center/services on campus also help you a great deal and help you get a co-op you really want, while making sure your professionalism is on point.

Overall Experience: The quality of courses and professors here are amazing. I have never been disappointing with my choice of classes and the professors really care about you and get to know you. Every now and then you get that professor you don't like but that's normal at any college. There are tons of courses offered for specific majors, but they should work on offering more electives at better times. The class styles are like any class style; the professor teaches, they want respect from the students, they use the white boards and power point slides. The class sizes are usually small or average sized, which helps you retain what the professor is saying much better. I love the classes and my professors at Wentworth.

Campus Housing: Living on campus makes going to Wentworth a lot easier, considering Boston traffic is awful. Taking it from someone that has lived on campus and now commutes, if you have the money, I would live on campus. The worst dorms are the freshman dorms, Baker and EWT but I would choose EWT if I were you because the suite style is way better than the traditional dorming in Baker. The best options are any of the upper classmen dorms, specifically Apartments at 525 or 555 Huntington. The social atmosphere is average, there's not always a ton of acitivity but if you choose who you live with and like who you live with, you'll be satisfied. The cost of housing at Wentworth is absolutely ridiculous though. It's the most expensive I have heard of from all my friends at other schools too. After my sophomore year I couldn't afford to live there anymore (although, I couldn't get private loans and I pay for school myself). I really wish housing was just a little cheaper or that Wentworth chipped in financially a little more for housing. The housing process is kind of a hit or miss, it depends on your grade and your GPA for your time slot to choose but you're most likely able to get housing and if not, housing always works with you to figure something out. All of the housing buildings are extremely close to classes since we have a small campus.

Greek Life: We do not really have Greek Life at our school. There is one fraternity at Wentworth but it is an academic fraternity; it is difficult to get into because your GPA has to be a certain number. For the students in that specific fraternity, they have a lot of Greek spirit but do not "own" any body at Wentworth, like the Greek Life at other colleges, and they are all your ordinary kind of student. They are all intelligent and stay low-key. I believe there is also another fraternity that connects all of the Fenway Schools that Wentworth students can join and they also have a lot of spirit but are also low-key. Most of the students in these two fraternities live on campus in housing or live off campus in separate apartments. Greek Life is not huge at Wentworth by any means, but I like that about Wentworth because Greek Life does not define you as a college student and I think some colleges and their students that focus strictly on Greek Life take away from the academic scene of college.
