Welcoming New Students to Campus

Last week, Wentworth welcomed back to campus the first group of new students. Wentworth is following an extensive Re-Entry Plan  to guide the gradual and safe return to campus. We are committed to providing our students with the highest quality experience possible while safeguarding the health and safety of everyone in the Wentworth and surrounding community.

We are excited for the start of Wentworth Opening Week  (WOW), beginning September 3rd. WOW is our official welcome program for all first year and transfer students at Wentworth. This is a great way to help welcome new students and transition them to life at Wentworth.

All students living on campus will participate in person, remote students will participate virtually, and commuter students have a choice between the two options. Students will participate in orientation group meetings, faculty panels, academic department and advising meetings, optional Boston walking tours and other fun programing. Evening programming will include both in-person and virtual bingo, trivia, movie nights, carnival games, lawn games, and interactive online games.

Keep in mind, all students who are participating in WOW in person must complete a COVID-19 test. Students will be required to show proof of a negative test result upon arrival to WOW programming or come to Wentworth for a COVID-19 test.

If you are participating in WOW and have a smartphone, please download the MyWentworth App  prior to arrival. You will use this app throughout WOW to access the schedule and virtual programming.

We look forward to meeting all new students and welcoming them to the Wentworth community. If you are coming to campus, please follow all safety guidelines. Wear a mask, adhere to physical distancing whenever possible and use the hand sanitizer stations that are placed around campus. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Admissions Office at 617-989-4000 or admissions@wit.edu.
