Simply College Visits: Bentley University

This month we’re heading north to visit Bentley University. Bentley is an undergraduate business school in Waltham, MA. They offer amazing resources for future business leaders including access to a Bloomberg terminal, business case competitions, and career communities.  Located less than 12 miles from Boston, Bentley students also have the opportunity to intern at a wide variety of companies.


  • Moody’s Deli ( 468 Moody St, Waltham, MA 02453): If you’re in the mood for a bagel or pastrami sandwich, you will not be disappointed by Moody’s. Check out Moody’s Backroom for a slightly higher-end meal, where they offer a full-service dining room with a different menu for lunch and dinner.  

  • Tempo (474 Moody St, Waltham, MA 02453):  You don’t have to go all the way to Boston’s North End for great Italian food. Right in downtown Waltham, Tempo has been said to have “Greater Boston’s Best Bolognese” by Phantom Gourmet.

  • Cafe on the Common (677 Main St, Waltham, MA 02451): Looking for a quick cup of coffee between campus visits? Check out Cafe on the Common - not only do they have great coffee, but they also make their own baked goods from scratch.


  • Westin Waltham (70 3rd Ave, Waltham, MA 02451): Less than 3 miles from Bentley, this hotel is convenient and comfortable.

  • Courtyard by Marriott Boston Waltham (387 Winter St, Waltham, MA 02451):  Ask for the Bentley rate and 10% of the proceeds will be donated to the school.

  • Hilton Garden Inn Boston Waltham (420 Totten Pond Rd, Waltham, MA 02451): Only about 2 miles from Bentley, this hotel offers an indoor pool perfect for an after visit dip.


  • Gore Place (52 Gore St, Waltham, MA 02453):  This historic house is now a museum open to the public.  While they offer house tours daily there are often workshops, concerts, and moonlight tours as well.  

  • Prospect Hill Park (314 Totten Pond Rd, Waltham, MA 02451): Take in amazing views of the Boston skyline, while taking advantage of the beautiful trails and grounds.  

  • Fenway Park ( 4 Yawkey Way, Boston, MA 02215):  What better way to truly understand how close Bentley is to Boston than visiting Fenway Park?  If you’re going during baseball season you can take in a game or they offer regular tours of the stadium all year-round.
