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.
