"Western New England Universitys college of Engineering played a significant role in my engineering career. The faculty and the engineering program here are top notch. The faculty really wants to help you and get the most out of you. The small class sized definitely helps them give the individual attention that you need. There were numerous times that I have gone to a professor since I didnt understand a concept, they take the time to make sure I understand it and even follow up on it with me. Most of the faulty have extensive industry experience and will share with you various industry practices and why its relevant. The campus overall is beautiful although, the location is not necessary the most happening area, NY and Boston are not too far away. I facilities here are well maintained and the students enjoy being there. The sports team are good, there is some school spirit, but most of the students just take part in club or intermural sports. Most of the student population is from the Massachusetts, CT and up state NY areas. The tuition here is hefty to make sure your finances check out with financial aid and scholarships if not you will rack up some serious debt. The school does a really good job with helping you in your career placement, including summer internships and full time jobs. They host a lot of networking and workshops that will improve your skills and network. I was able to get a good internship and finally a fully time job though the career services."

"This program is a newly starting out program, that has a few kinks to still work out. This program is academically rigorous program that challenges students and gives some excellent instruction. However, many of the faculty do not practice in the field and are not up to date on the material. Classes sometimes appear unorganized and you have to do a fair amount of preparation outside of the classroom to make sure that things are learned necessary for the career. This program is focused a bit too much on the appearance of the school than the academics and the quality educational experience that we should be receiving."

"This is a smaller Law school affording each student more one on one attention and oppotruinies fron both faculty and staff. I have been to bigger universities and I like that I don't feel like a number here. The professors are great, and always willing to guide you in the right dirrection if you seek additional help. What I didn't realize when I chose to pursue my education here is that in a lot of ways the interests of certain professor and their values/beliefs power the school and make it far more favorable to certain minority groups. This is not to say that I don't support advocay, rather I am speaking to such strong adovacy for onew group that another group is forgotten about, or unintentionally negatively affected due to a clash of views. Overall I like the school however in any situation there is always room for further developement and improvements."
