Western New England University. The Support You Need to Succeed.
Where will you be most successful? That's the question you need to ask when exploring your college options. In today's world, we all have learned it's not about buildings or amenities, it's about belonging to a community—finding a school where the people will support your ambitions, passions, and learning style. And a school small enough to give us all plenty of space yet big enough to offer you the room to explore majors as you grow as a person and as a student.
So if you're looking for a university with a proven track record of success, you've come to the right place. WNE has been ranked #5 in the U.S. and #1 in Massachusetts for getting a job, according to data from the Federal College Scorecard. Ten years after graduating, our graduates earned an average of $6,916 a year more than 80% of students from other schools where our applicants typically consider enrolling.
