I have gained so much knowledge studying in the Construction Managment Field. The hands on labs, co-op opportunities have been a great privilege. The professors are great, helpful and willing to work with you all the time. The campus is friendly and easy to get around. So much to do in Boston on time off!
the school has the best programs and the educators are so respectful. the eduactors will sit down with you and help expand your mindset and help you the best way they know how. the students are nice and helpful. the campus isnt too big which is a plus in terms of intergrating into a unfamiliar place.
I am happy with my decision to come to Wentworth, playing a sport definitely helps you get connected around campus. Really nice living conditions for freshman and even better for sophomore, junior and senior housing. Love being in Boston, there's always something to do and really good restaurants to try.
