As chilly temperatures encourage many of us to hunker down at home with hot chocolate and Netflix, our winter athletes are just beginning to ramp up their quest for NCAA Division III victory. Help us cheer them on in a new blog feature we’re calling Winter Athletics Roundup. First up, their skills are as cold as ice, [pun intended] meet freshman forwards Brian Farkas and Christopher Sattler from Wentworth’s Ice Hockey team.
- Brian hails from Seattle, Washington and studies Interdisciplinary Engineering and scored the shootout winner in the Salem State tournament earlier this season. He notes that “the best part about being a student athlete at Wentworth is the opportunity to earn a great education while continuing to play the sport he loves.” He is most excited for the “final stretch of the season and a deep playoff run.” He encourages prospective athletes to “manage your time well, Wentworth is not an easy school and it is important to balance your time with school and sports.”
From Springfield, Massachusetts, Chris studies Construction Management and his hometown team, Western New England University, didn’t know what hit them when Chris scored two goals in less than 26 seconds against them earlier this season. He enjoys the camaraderie of the team, especially the opportunity to befriend upperclassmen studying Construction Management because they help inform him of future expectations of the major and how to excel in classes. Chris encourages prospective freshman athletes to “go for it, Wentworth is a great school and in the end you will graduate with great job opportunities.”
Both Chris and Brian hope to win the ECAC Northeast and make the NCAA playoffs. Their current record is 6-6-2 and their next game takes place on Wednesday, January 14 against UMass Boston at 7:30 PM. We wish them the best of luck. Go Leopards!
Happy New Year blog-o-sphere! On January 1, 2015 the FAFSA (the Free Application for Federal Student Aid) became available for the class of 2019. For tips and tricks from Wentworth’s financial aid experts check out Wentworth’s Financial Aid Blog.
As we look ahead to the Spring 2015 semester we are thrilled to welcome our incoming class of transfer students. Since many transfer students choose to commute to Wentworth, we asked Mallory Pernaa, Coordinator of Commuter Student Programs to create a short vlog for us with resources for commuter students. Check it out HERE.

Wentworth Admission’s fall travel season has come to a close and we are thankful to be able to wake up in our own familiar beds and eat delicious home-cooked meals. Admittedly though, we’re a little nostalgic for You-Pick-Two lunches and plush hotel bedding.
All kidding aside, we want to thank you the students and families that we’ve met at high school visits and college fairs across the country and around the world. You energize us with your passion, welcome us to unfamiliar places with your smiles, and warm our hearts with your kindness.
Seniors, as we begin to review your applications it’s nice to meet some of you all over again. We are awed by your talents and accomplishments. Thank you for sharing your stories with us.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.
Are those the gorgeous rolling hills of Vermont? No, they’re not! Admissions Counselor Abby took this serene shot of a field in the Nutmeg State on her way to a college fair!
