It's a small school in a big city, and you never feel like just another number. Most of the professors are great and other students are super helpful. It's not a party school, but you'll never be bored. the curriculum is challenging and prepares you for the future, but you have to be prepared to work hard. The co-op program is excellent and one of the most developed co-op programs in the country. The housing is pretty nice for Boston as well, and overall I can't complain. The food gets old after a while, but there are a lot of off campus dining options. I do not regret going here at all.
Wentworth Institute of Technology is a great institution with a very positive reputation in the construction and sciences fields, especially in New England. The required co-op opportunities are responsible for the school's success rate when it comes to students finding jobs after graduation. The only reason Wentworth has a drop-out rate is because students decide to enter the workforce early, which the school doesn't advise students to do. The female population is lacking but the females confident to enroll at Wentworth are treated with respect and as equals, therefore, more females should apply in my opinion. The school is the least costly private school in Boston and offers a great atmosphere with a mixture of small school and big city life.
Wentworth is a good place to go if you are looking to be prepared for your post-graduate career. TThis school is not a place for drinking or partying on campus, there is one fraternity on campus and it is an academic one. The sports are small. This is not a place for a "typical college experience". However, this is an excellent school for preparing you for your career. Students graduate with at least two internships completed and there are resources on campus to help you with writing your resume and cover letters and finding a job even after you have graduated.
Wentworth Institute of Technology was my top choice of colleges to go to, and I'm so glad i decided to attend the college. Its in the city, there is so much to do, and places to explore. It is the best decision i made, I wouldn't trade the experience for anything!
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Wentworth Institute of Technology is 70%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
To begin, I really wish I could go back and talk to myself as a high school senior. I would tell myself to take a year off between school and work to help pay for college. I would also inform myself to really think about what I want to do for a career. However, knowing that, I would probably still go to college.
Chelsey, before you go to college know this: 90% of the freshmen are homesick, only a few of them show it. Talk to your roomates about it, because you will be surprised that they feel the same as you do. Also, talk to everyone in your class. People are going to split off into their own groups, better make your friends now instead of later! However, your friends in the first few weeks won't be your friends at the end of the year. Lastly, talk to your teachers. They are here to help you, but they won't do anything if you don't ask. Actually, talk to them all the time, sometimes your professor is the coolest person in the world and may be your second dad. Hang in there kid.
The school is working on becoming enviormentally friendly and they are doing an alright job.
Wentworth is a focused, career-oriented setting that strives to educate their students toward a rapidly changing tech-savvy world.
The worst part of the school is the lack of scanners and printers available to students for mass use. We have a print lab with two major printers, but when many students and scrambling to print their work for projects, it can usually turn into chaos with so many students waiting to print. Similarly, the library has three scanners (of three different sizes), but when we need to scan our large drawings, everyone needs to use the biggest scanner, and, just like the printer situation, it can be difficult.
The competitiveness in my architecture studio encourages my classmates and me to be creative and hardworking as we are constantly working on projects for studio that require such determination in order to achieve success.
The convenience and availability of transport and staff. There is a transport system deticated to the school and popular off-campus housing making even off-campus living possible for those who don't have rides. Teachers and staff are always available or have hours listed when they are so. Of course there's the energy about the school. There are always students on Landis Green playing ultimate frizbee, tanning, or just playing with their dogs. FSU is the first school I've ever seen that allowed pets on campus.
The work load on the architecture students vs other majors.
a person who loves hands on experience all the schools classes have a lab portion that go along with them so you get both hands on work and classroom work when taking your classes. the student also needs to want to learn becuse there are so many ways to get help and to help yourself at school including the tutoring, your professors, and the library.
Sometimes I feel that some of the professors do not know how to teach. They know their "stuff" but they can not teach it.
Architecture and engineering.
The location is the best part about Wentworth, it is located in the middle of Northeastern and Mass Art, with MCPHS, Simmons, Emmanuel and Wheelock all down the street. You are always around people your age, and all the schools besides Northeastern are part of Colleges of the Fenway, so you can join clubs and also take you electives at the other schools. At Wentworth, unlike other architectural schools, you get to jump right into the drawing and construction of models. at other schools you have to study the fine arts side of it first.
One who is motivated and wants to excel in life.
Tough and challenging.
