Archives For Class of 2020

Congratulations on being a #WITCOMMIT!

You’re probably wondering, what’s next?  Here are some important dates and deadlines to keep on your radar.

1.  Activate your Wentworth email address: Now that our deposit deadline has passed, your Wentworth email is ready for use! To activate your email, click the email link in the top right hand corner of your LConnect home page or visit email.wit.edu. Enter your username which can be found at the bottom of your acceptance letter, and your temporary password which is the same as the temporary password for LConnect. Once you login, make sure you follow the instructions to change your password. Once your Wentworth email is active, be proactive and check it often. From here on out, this is how we will communicate with you.

Having technical issues? Contact our Division of Technology Services (DTS) at 617-989-4500.

2. Register for Orientation by June 10: Attending New Student Orientation (NSO) is mandatory, and fun! It is your opportunity to explore campus and make connections with other members of the class of #WIT2020. You will also learn which courses you will be taking in your first semester and how to register for them. Read more about what to expect at Orientation here!

Transfer Students: You are not required to attend New Student Orientation. Transfer students are invited to attend an optional transfer orientation in July. The date will be announced sometime in June.

International Students: We understand the high cost of travel, so we also do not require International Students to attend New Student Orientation. We do require International Students to attend Welcome Week and International Student Orientation which will take place right before the start of classes.

Questions about NSO? Email Emily Smedick at smedicke@wit.edu

3. Living on Campus?  Complete the Housing Agreement and Roommate Questionnaire: Both the housing agreement and roommate matching questionnaire will become available to students on June 1st. Students are not required to participate in the roommate questionnaire. Students are welcome to room with a friend from high school or someone that they meet at orientation. The questionnaire is a means of pairing students up with a roommate based on living preferences.

4. E-Bills available on June 18: Log into LConnect to access your bill. Students should also remember to assign their parent as a proxy on their account, especially if their parent is paying the bill.

E-Bill questions?  Contact the Student Service Center 617-989-4020 or ssc@wit.edu. 

5. Housing Selection July 11-15: Students will be notified of their housing selection slot, which will specify their date and time to chose housing. If you have already found a roommate at NSO (yay!), the student with the earlier selection time will place both themselves and their roommate in a room.

Wondering about housing?  Contact Housing & Residential Life 617-989-4160.

6. Documents Due August 3: Fall 2016 bill, immunization form, and  student insurance plan waiver or insurance enrollment form are due on this day.

FMI contact the Student Service Center 617-989-4020 or ssc@wit.edu. 

As always, contact Admissions with further questions or concerns.  We are happy to help!

Welcome Wentworth Class of 2020! We have some awesome Accepted Student events coming up. We hope to see you there! #WITAdmit

Accepted Students Day:

What: Accepted Student Day is an important event to attend if you are considering Wentworth for Fall 2016 whether or not you have already visited campus. There will be a variety of information sessions throughout ASD. We will also run “Ask the Experts” panels, one specifically for students and another for parents. ASD is a great opportunity to get all of your questions answered, whether about co-op, student life, transitioning to city living, homework, or even the food on campus. If you are wondering how you can get involved on campus, look no further, student clubs and organizations will be available to speak with potential new members for Fall 2016 including Society of Women Engineers, Competitive Video Gaming Club, and American Society of Mechanical Engineers, just to name a few!

Make sure to bring your appetite, we will have a continental breakfast and lunch buffet. We will also run campus tours continuously throughout the day for students who haven’t had a chance to visit campus, or want to take a second look! Don’t be nervous to break the ice and introduce yourself to other accepted students. Everyone is apprehensive about starting college in the Fall. Developing lifelong friendships is one of the most rewarding aspects of the college experience. Someone sitting next to you during a session on Accepted Student Day might end up being your freshman roommate!

When: Friday, March 25 and Friday, April 1

Why: ASD is a great opportunity to determine if Wentworth is the best fit for your educational needs.

How: If you haven’t yet registered for Accepted Student Day, there is still time! Sign up through our Accepted Student website or by calling the Admissions Office (617-989-4000). Lastly, if you’re excited about attending Accepted Student Day, let us know on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram by using the #WITASD and #WITADMIT hashtags!

 

Shadow Program:

Who: Students who have been accepted for Fall 2016.

Why:  Attending a Shadow Day at Wentworth is a great way to determine if you can truly see yourself as a student here. It is also a great way to see if the major you are considering is everything you had hoped for!

What: You may be asking yourself, “What is a typical day-in-the-life of a Wentworth student?” A Shadow Day will answer this question for you! We will match you with a current Wentworth student in your major and you will have the opportunity to shadow their classes for the day, as well as dine on campus!

When/How: Our Shadow Day program concludes on April 8th and we do request that students give us at least 2 weeks’ notice to ensure that we can organize the most informational day possible! You can sign up for a Shadow Day through our Accepted Student website or by calling Admissions.
