WHAT I LIKED

The environment and the people on campus

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The food is not the best but after the first year. There are options with kitchens and you can lower your meal plan.

WHAT I LIKED

The WNE campus is the most beautiful campus I’ve ever been on. In the fall with the changing leaves and in the spring with all of the growing flowers and blooming trees. Absolutely stunning!

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Because it’s a small campus people tend to make little cliques, especially if they’re in sports.

WHAT I LIKED

At a small school like Western New England University, the opportunities for growth are endless. In the research setting, WNE staff welcome and encourage students' work. Unlike a larger institution, the research we do is done by undergrad students. The small student body makes it easy to become close with staff, where you are a person and not just a number.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The administration at WNE is not in sync with the student body. There is a lack of communication from the administration to the students, and it can be hard to reach out to the admin. School funding goes towards things that may not help students due to this lack of communication.

4.0

WHAT I LIKED

I love how everyone cares about the well-being of others and the welcoming environment that occurs on campus. I like how you can go to anyone for help and they will listen to you and take your needs into consideration.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

If you don’t like a small school then WNE is not it for you, you mostly know a lot of people on the campus. You’ll see the same people all of the time.

5.0
