What was your motivation for returning to school?

I have a lot of work experience in the construction field, but had no formal education, which held me back in terms of career advancement. I knew that Wentworth had a great reputation and my father in law pushed me to enroll. I started out with the construction certificate, rolled some of those credits into the associate degree in construction management, and now I’m in the bachelor’s degree program.

What do you like most about the classroom experience at Wentworth?

The classroom is a great place for idea generation. I get to talk shop with my fellow classmates, which has helped me to be more efficient in my job. More generally speaking, I’m able to tie the education and theory into the vast work experience I have, and it’s all coming together well.

Would you recommend Wentworth to others?

I actually already have encouraged several of my younger co-workers to come to Wentworth. There are so many things I like about the school! I received a promotion after earning my associate degree, there’s a ton of knowledge to soak up, and Wentworth structures their adult programs very well.
