Golden Bear for a Day

Want to see what it’s like to be a student at Western New England University? Register today to be a Golden Bear for a Day! Here accepted students will have the opportunity to shadow a current Western New England student attending classes, eating lunch in our dining hall, and meeting with professors on campus. You can add to your day by meeting with a coach, going on a campus tour, and/or speaking with an Admissions/Financial Aid representative. This is a fantastic opportunity to see if Western New England is the place for you!

Engineering Academic Preview Day!

All Accepted Engineering Students are invited to take part in a very special program hosted by our College of Engineering on Monday, February 15.  While on campus, students will meet with both faculty and current students from the College of Engineering, and have the unique opportunity to participate in a hands-on project specific to your intended Engineering major.  We strongly believe that Western New England University’s College of Engineering is distinct, and we welcome the opportunity to share this experience with you.  Parents are welcome to join their students, and will have the chance to learn more about our First-Year Program as well as have any financial aid questions answered.  Students and their parents will be invited to try out lunch in our dining hall, and for those who have not had a chance to visit Western New England, we will be providing a campus tour following the conclusion of our program.

To register:  please contact Madeleine Bergstrom at mbergstrom@wne.edu or 413-782-1321

Business Academic Preview Day!

All Accepted Business Students are invited to take part in a very special program hosted by our College of Business on Friday, February 19.  During the event you will meet with members of the faculty and hear from current students who will share why they think a degree from Western New England University’s College of Business is well worth the investment.  Students will also have the opportunity to attend a class with a student in your intended Business major.  A customized campus tour will be offered and you will have the opportunity to continue the conversation with faculty and students over lunch!
