About WNE

A small school where you can actually get to know your professors and other students, Western New England University offers undergraduate and graduate academics, being particularly well known for its Pharmacy and Engineering programs.

Western New England University is located in Springfield, Massachusetts, a small city about two hours from Boston and only 30 minutes from the beautiful Berkshire Mountains.

Undergraduate programs at Western New England University are offered through the Arts and Sciences, Business and Engineering departments. There is also a Pre-Pharmacy major from which many students move into the graduate Pharmaceutical Sciences program, one of Western New England College’s strongest. Other graduate degrees are awarded in Law, Engineering and Business.

Since Western New England is a small school, students have the chance to get to know one another through the numerous on-campus events. Traditional festivals are a big part of student life and include a Music Fest, and fall, winter and spring festivals.

There are also performing arts groups, including a drama club, choir, and a school newspaper and other literary publications. There are also weekly campus parties and field trips throughout the Northeast.

While students applying to the graduate programs will have to meet department-specific requirements, all undergraduate applicants submit the same materials, such as transcripts and an essay, regardless of their preferred major.

Students may also apply for scholarships and other forms of financial aid to help with tuition costs.

After graduating from high school, the idea of going to college was kind of scary. I remember my first day where I had to move in. Parents with their daughters and sons, everyone excited with that thought of a new chapter in life. I remember looking forward to meet my roomate Cassandra. One thing I definitely liked about western new england college is that they made the transition of college life very easy, enjoyable and exciting. They had this website where we could meet other future alumni, and possibly potential roomates. That is where I met Cassandra. We had fun planning and shopping for our room and life together at college. As soon as I arrived, everyone was firendly and very helpful. I mean even as I began living on campus, I was still scared. I remember getting around campus. At first it was hard, but I think that for me it was easier, since back in the summer before college started they organized an event for new year alumni and parents stay over at the college, in order to have a feel of what college was be like. In which we stayed over at dorms and tour the campus and got to meet others. So getting around campus wasn't that hard. On my first week I already had a taste of what my college was going to be like, and I have to say I fell in love with this college. I loved the dining experience. The food was great. Especially breakfast. My professors were awesome. I loved my political science class, since our professor was very pasionate when he taught us about the government. Everyone participated in that class. But my most favorite one was my English class, our professor was very helpful and our class was small which gave us a better chance to learn so much more and being able to interact with our professors. My psychology professor always had something fun for class activity. I have to say collge is way better than high school. Learning was more fun. Besides the academics, the collge always had organized events to maintain students cheerful and makeign college fun. They always had educational activities and known people come in doing magic tricks but with a lesson. I even got to know people out of my dorm and major field, which was fun. Their library is full of books and even movies to rent on weekends. Everything was fun! I would tell prospective students, Western New England College is definitely and experience to not miss. Be prepared to start a new life, but don't worry they will definitely make that transition easy and fun. Good luck!
