Colleges of the Fenway
Wentworth is a member of the Colleges of the Fenway (COF), a collaboration between six academic institutions in Boston's Fenway neighborhood. The COF gives students the opportunity to engage and interact with other students, organizations, and classes at participating colleges. There are numerous activities for COF students, including performing arts, intramural sports teams, study abroad opportunities and COF wide events.
As part of the COF you can join clubs and organizations at other COF schools, and attend events at other schools. In addition, the COF plans large events each year for the COf population. Each September there's a Block Party where you can see COF offerings and get free swag from local area vendors. The Block Party is followed by an After Party, a free party where you can meet students from around the COF. Each spring you'll see COF spring weekend which may bring a concert, carnival or comedy show. And in between you'll see talent shows, ski trips, field days and more. (Events vary by year).

For all COF members, Intramurals are the perfect way to stay active. Whether you were a former high school or college athlete, or just want to try your hand at a new sport, Intramurals have something for everyone. COF leagues provide competition in an array of traditional and non-traditional sports. Participants create teams with their friends of residence hall community and the COF provides the leagues, space, officials, and equipment. It’s free to play, and teams are encouraged to incorporate players from across the six colleges.

The hallmark of the six college consortium, cross registration enables students to take courses that may not be offered at their home institution, in addition to the chance to create unique academic minors. More than 1,200 cross registration courses are available, and since the consortium’s inception hundreds of COF members cross register each year.
