Wentworth Celebrates NCAA Division III Week

NCAA Division III Week is currently taking place through April 13 across the country. The event is a celebration by member institutions and conferences of the division’s unique philosophy that equally values academics, athletics and student-athletes’ involvement in a full and rich campus life. This year's celebration takes on more meaning as member schools and conferences also are celebrating Division III's 40th anniversary year.
