History[edit] Bentley University
Bentley University
was founded in 1917 as the Bentley School of Accounting and Finance by Harry C. Bentley who served as the school’s president until 1953. In 1961, the college was accredited to confer four-year Bachelor of Science degrees under President Morison, who moved the college from its Boylston Street
Boylston Street
address in Boston to its current day location in Waltham, Massachusetts. Gregory H. Adamian, a major driving force in the college's development, became the fourth president in 1970. Under his guidance, the college became accredited to confer four-year Bachelor of Arts degrees in 1971 and graduate degrees in 1973. During this time, the school also changed its name to Bentley College. In 2002, Bentley College opened up a campus in the Middle Eastern country of Bahrain

in partnership with the Bahrain

Institute of Banking and Finance. The college was accredited to confer its first doctoral degrees in the fields of business and accountancy in 2005.[3] A main fixture of the campus, The Bentley Library, underwent a sweeping renovation in 2006 during which time the school's logo was changed to showcase the clock tower that sits atop the building.[4] One year later, Gloria Cordes Larson, a former state and federal government official and Boston-based lawyer became the first female president of Bentley College. In 2008, the school changed its name to Bentley University

after being authorized by the state board of higher education to do so.[5] Campus[edit] In 1968, Bentley moved from downtown Boston to Waltham, Massachusetts, to accommodate an increasing number of students. The first buildings on the Waltham campus were built between 1965 and 1968. Today, the campus stretches across 163 acres (0.66 km2) of land, and is accessible by the MBTA 554 bus. Bentley University's campus is divided into three parts: Upper Campus, Lower Campus and North Campus. Upper Campus[edit] Upper Campus contains most of the school's academic buildings and all of its classrooms. It is located on the North side of Beaver Street. Upper also contains all three freshman dorms, a few upperclassman dorms, and the University's bookstore. Lower Campus[edit] Lower Campus contains much of the upperclassman housing as well as the school's athletic facilities. It is connected to upper campus via a bridge over Beaver Street. It is located on the South side of Beaver Street.

North Campus[edit] North Campus is located 1/2 mile North of the main entrance to Upper Campus on Forest Street. Transportation to and from North Campus is provided via shuttle bus. North Campus contains only residence hall buildings named: A, B, C and D. Residence halls A and B were opened in 2005 while C and D were opened in 2007 making North Campus the most recent addition to Bentley's housing facilities. Each building has 3 floors and include an elevator and 2 stairwells. Originally North Campus was intended to be graduate student housing but due to the sharp growth of enrollment it is occupied mostly by undergraduates. Rankings[edit] U.S. News & World Report[6]

Graduate programs[edit] Bentley User Experience Degree (San Francisco)[edit] The Masters of Human Factors in Information Design program is offered on the West Coast, home to some of the world’s most innovative technology companies. Students take four of the required courses in California, five courses online, and the 10th course at Bentley’s User Experience Center. The one-week residency on campus, held August 1-5, enables students to experience the state-of-the-art center, meet faculty, and network with current students and alumni. The program was designed to accommodate the busy schedules of tech professionals and to draw students from a wide geographic area. Each course is being delivered in an executive format: three class meetings on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, followed by four weeks of faculty monitored virtual team work, and closing with a Friday/Saturday meeting in the classroom. [8] Student life[edit] Club Sports at Bentley University[edit] In addition to the intercollegiate and intramural programs, the university offers a number of club sports for students to take part in.
