Veterans Lounge Established in Willson Hall

August 9, 2019

Wentworth has designated a special area on campus for military veterans to study and socialize. 

U.S. Army Infantry Sgt. Sean Kennedy, BSME ’20, speaking at an Aug. 7 preliminary opening for the space, cited the team work that made the designation possible.

“We weren’t the first class to suggest a lounge and it is something that so many of us can benefit from,” he said. “We’re very grateful for your support and I know with President (Mark) Thompson at the helm that the future is bright for ROTC at Wentworth.”

The lounge space, located in Willson Hall, features a kitchenette, new furniture, television, and whiteboard.

Room 105 across the hall has been transformed from a traditional classroom into a space that can be reserved for veteran/ROTC events, and training and tutoring sessions.

A ribbon cutting for the lounge is scheduled for this fall.
