Boston…you’re my home!

Boston is an amazing city! I feel incredibly lucky to have access to all of the things the city has to offer. While I personally don’t live in Boston, it certainly feels like home as I have been in the city for work or school for over 20 years. 

Boston is one of Wentworth’s five factors for our students’ success. With access to co-op employers, cultural opportunities, and major attractions, you have to take advantage of your time in the city!  The Mayor’s Office is once again launching the #MeetBoston campaign, encouraging students to get out and into the life of the city. Make a bucket list….what are the things you want to do and see?  We’ve started a list for you….be sure to share your adventures with us on social media using #MeetBoston!
