I live on campus at Wentworth College. The environment here is beautiful and the location is great, with a beautiful lake beside it. We are surrounded by this endless green panoramic view; it’s very pleasant. The location of Wentworth College is really good. It is close to the Nisa supermarket, bus stop and Morrell Library on Campus West. It only takes me about 8 minutes to walk to each of these places and it’s very close to my classroom. I am really happy that I live here.
