The Golden Bears compete in conference against programs such as Curry College, the University of New England, Salve Regina University and Wentworth Institute of Technology.

Western New England is located in Springfield, Mass. The school has 3,955 undergraduate and graduate students and offers close to 50 undergraduate degree programs.
