Overall Experience: Western New England has been a really great fit for me. After my first year I have become really accustomed to my school and really appreciate the small classes and caring professors.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Immediately when I walked on campus I felt a sense of comfort, a feeling that stuck with me throughout my freshman year. Something that I always hear people say is that everyone at my school is so polite and friendly, and I agree completely. During my first semester, I was given multiple peer mentors who's jobs were to make there to make sure that I was on the right track in my classes, and were always a text or phone call away if I had any questions. I also felt that bond and security with my professors, who as a whole made it a point to show that they truly cared about my education. One of the best decisions that I made going into the year was to join the field hockey team. I was welcomed right in, and those girls are now some of my closest friends. Playing a sport is incredibly time consuming in and out of our regular season, but it helped me to manage my time and made me feel so much more comfortable with my school. My freshman year was an incredible one, made possible by the community at WNE.

Campus Food: Sometimes there isn't much variety on certain days which leaves you with the generic food items as your options

Scholarships: As a transfer student, handling the financial aid and the process was much easier than I thought it would be!

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Definitely older, some updating could be done, but overall can't complain

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Most students qualify for several scholarships which help to reduce costs but still gain the same education

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living on campus is a great atmosphere to make friends and be independent and housing is rather spacious and clean as well as friendly all around to be in.

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Not many places and their all run down

2 College Sophomore

Campus Food: No food for people who dont eat meat

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I don't really know much about the off-campus housing, but I haven't seen much from what I've heard of. I'm not totally sure what the off-campus housing entails.

Off-Campus Dining: Off-Campus dining is awesome! There are so many options and they vary a lot. The prices also vary often too; some are more expensive than others, but there are always good options to choose from. The food is great and it is plentiful around campus.

Administration: The administration is pretty good here; they take care of what they need to, and most of the times it's pretty fair so the students often obey the rules and guidelines. There are usually little to no problems.

Scholarships: The financial aid process was easy, but considering the price of the tuition, I didn't get a lot of financial aid. However, due to my grades in high school, I did get a pretty good scholarship from the school that I receive yearly.

Party Scene: The party scene is okay at best at this school. There are very little options for parties outside of campus--and most of the time, it is hard to get into them. Other times, there isn't much going on, which is difficult as well. The party scene is pretty disappointing at this school, especially when there's not much going on because there are very little choices for partying.

Campus Food: The campus food is okay, good at best. The dining staff is nice, the food is average, and there are good quality options. However, it gets old after a while, and it is very expensive, especially for first and second-year students. A lot of times, you don't have a choice; if you don't get the meal plan, you have little options for food around the rest of the campus.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Depending on where you live, living on campus is great. It's not the most affordable, but it's convenient, and there are lot of options. There is a huge opportunity for social experiences, but the housing process is a huge stressor for everyone to go through. It's not the easiest or most convenient process to undergo.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There are places available, but it's mostly expensive (not quite as expensive as living on campus!). Springfield is a shady area, though, so be careful. Something like 5th most dangerous place in the country

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are so many options just down the road, including both chain restaurants (Ruby Tuesdays, Olive Garden) that cost a bit more as well as local places like pizza places, frozen yogurt, etc. Domino's (I think) gives student discounts, and you can use your points on them.

4 College Freshman

Administration: I've never seen anything where they were out of line. They aren't that strict (however, I haven't been to many raging parties, so I'm not a top authority). However, beware of Commonwealth fire alarms! They happen ALLL THE TIME!

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: Get good grades, pay attention in high school! It could get you up to $16,500 a year! Not to mention, they're more likely to give you other scholarships (like they did me) if they think you're a good investment, i.e. you're going to stay with them and you're going to produce good grades. Talk to them if you have any questions. It's pretty straightforward.

5 College Freshman

Campus Food: I'm one of the few people who actually LOVES the dining hall. It's extremely versatile; there's a salad bar, a pizza area, sandwich area, "grandma's home cooking," vegetarian, the grill, pasta, etc.. the only way you could get tired of it is if you go to the same station every day. They really work hard to change things up and make things taste good, which I think they succeed in.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It costs a lot to go here, given. I'm a freshman and I live in Commonwealth. It's nice, the rooms are slightly bigger than usual dorms, and they give you good furniture which you can loft no problem. Commonwealth (semi-private bathrooms!) are definitely better than the Quad freshman dorms, but it's easier to make friends in the Quad since everyone is a freshman and is looking for friends. It's a small campus, so everything is extremely close to classes. La Riv is actually a building with both classes and dorms, which is cool. The people that do housekeeping/maintenance are really nice. Overall, pretty good.

4 College Student

Campus Housing: Housing is pretty decent as far as campuses go.

4 College Student

Academics: I love the academics and the helpful teachers.

3 College Student

Campus Food: It's not the best food but it's not terrible.
