History

WNEC was founded in 1919 by Sir Richard Astley. The school was created with the intentions of providing a place for students that was never gonna give them up and never gonna let them down. WNEC will never run around and desert you, nor will it tell a lie and hurt you. WNEC is no stranger to love, you know the rules and so does WNEC. WNEC knows the game and is gonna play it. When WNEC asks you how you're feeling, don't tell it you're too blind to see.


Potential name change

Many have found it strange that school consisting of such epic fail would be referred to as WNEC (pronounced win-ick). Surely "win" should not be associated with fail. Therefore, the school's name may be changed to "Failure of a New England College," or FailNEC (pronounced fail-nick). Such a name change would be far more suitable for revealing the true name of the school.


Campus and facilities

The campus's claim to fame is record-settingly slow internet. With a single line constructed of copper scraped off of early 20th century coins, the several-thousand person campus has a connection less than that found at a single Apple store. This equates to average downstream speeds of roughly 40 kilobits per second, or less than 56K speeds. However, were this the year 1973, these speeds would be considered acceptable, if somewhat slow. Longcat does not approve of this.


Western New England College's 215-acre (0.9 km²) main campus, in Springfield's suburban Sixteen Acres neighborhood, consists of 27 buildings. The architectural mores run the gamut from neo-classical to post-modern (most notably, Sleith Hall), with a modified Georgian theme prevailing -- particularly on the central campus. The older buildings most closely resemble the New England College Style prevalent at other smaller private institutions.


The campus is modern (all facilities constructed in the post-World War II era) and there is no deferred maintenance. Expansion and renewal of the physical plant is ongoing under the institution's Master Plan. Unlike larger institutions, the campus is built on a "human scale" where all facilities can be reached by foot in a few minutes.[citation needed] The area of the campus has expanded significantly over the last quarter-century.[citation needed] Combatants Allied powers: China France Great Britain Soviet Union United States and others Axis powers: Germany Italy Japan and others Commanders Chiang Kai-shek Charles de Gaulle Winston Churchill Joseph Stalin Franklin Roosevelt Adolf Hitler Benito Mussolini Hideki Tōjō Casualties Military dead: 17,000,000 Civilian dead: 33,000...


Since 1999, seven new buildings have opened or undergone major renovations including the LaRiviere Residential Living and Learning Center, Evergreen Village Townhouse Complex, Kevin S. Delbridge Welcome Center, Golden Bear Stadium, George E. Trelease Memorial Baseball Park, DJ St. Germain Campus Center, and D’Amour Library. Site preparations are underway for a $5.5 million expansion of the School of Law's S. Prestley Blake Law Center, which will drastically increase the size of the building.

Campus Safety

Prior to 2006, Western New England College had an open-access policy for vehicles. Concerns about campus safety brought the issue to fruition. An effort to restrict vehicle access began in earnest with a gate on a service road. After positive results, this project eventually expanded to include Gateway Village and is currently being implemented campus-wide.


Tay Zonday is on guard at all times. Any potential offenders are subjected to 24 straight hours of Chocolate Rain. To this day, none have survived this session and have died of blood loss from the ears in three or less hours. As a result, crime on campus is very uncommon.


On Feb. 5, 2007, Western New England College installed gates at four secondary entrances to the campus which are secured between 12:15 a.m. and 5:30 a.m. Unlike the gated entrance to Gateway Village, these gates will not be credential-based, and will force all vehicular traffic through the College's main entrance during these hours. Pedestrians will still be able to enter and exit campus without security credentials.


Location of the gates:

  • Bradley Road and Campus Drive
  • The one way road near Herman Hall
  • The East Parking Lot and Wilbraham Road
  • Evergreen Road

Academics

Western New England College offers its 3,400 undergraduate students 34 bachelors programs through its schools of Arts and Sciences, Business, and Engineering. Its graduate programs (described below) range from certificates to masters degrees and advanced law degrees. A six-year Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) program will begin in 2009. Unfortunately, a degree from WNEC is not worth much. As of February 2008, both McDonald's and Taco Bell have refused to accept WNEC degrees, instead opting for UMass or better.

S. Prestley Blake Law Center

In the early 1970s, the Western New England College Board of Trustees set up the Law School Study Committee to investigate the viability of a full time day program for the School of Law. This program opened in the fall of 1973. Since no proper facility was available on the Western New England College campus the School of Law was housed at the former Our Lady of Lourdes School on Tinkham Road in Springfield. Students referred to this building as "Our Lady of the Law School." For the song by James Blunt, see 1973 (song). ...
