    Western New England University is located in Springfield, Massachusetts. This is about an hour and a half away from Boston and about three hours away from New York City, we're located in a very safe residential area of Springfield. What's nice about this location is that we're close enough to the cities where students get to travel and they have a lot of opportunity to network and get jobs after graduation, although because we're outside of the major cities, the cost of living is much cheaper for students.

Portland's a very green city. Second, I think people are very friendly, very approachable. You can ask them questions if you get lost and they will answer them. And it's been really nice. Third of all, I think it's a very easy and navigate buses, trains, trams. They can get you anywhere in the city really quickly for one single ticket and a very cheap price.
