Wellesley College Reviews
I love being a student at Wellesley! I have made so many friends and connections, both with professors and my peers. I always feel like I can I be myself, and have seen myself grow into a passionate, confident, intelligent, self-assured woman. I have been guided in my challenges, and cheered on in my successes. The community is incredibly supportive and invested in each other.
Wellesley is an amazing place and as an alum I experience the benefits of having attended every day. Being part of an alumnae/i network that is always available and willing to help us a huge advantage. Not to mention my first two jobs after college had a Wellesley connection. Academically, Wellesley is very difficult and practices grade deflation wherein class averages are supposed to come out to a B+ at the highest. This can make it competitive with your classmates, but it also pushes you to do some really great work. Additionally they have a largest endowment and award need based financial aid generously. I would absolutely recommend Wellesley to anyone.
Wellesley is the best thing to ever happen to me. I feel unbelievably blessed to have been placed in this picture-perfect setting with passionate faculty, brilliant and kind students, a convenient location, incredible facilities, and caring staff. No college is perfect, but Wellesley tends to acknowledge its imperfections and actively works to resolve them. I've never felt more supported, appreciated, or stimulated intellectually. Wellesley is for you if you're an overachiever, if you value being part of a historic legacy, and if you care about what you do. Wellesley is not for you if all you care about is partying(though it's still available), social status, greek life, or slacking off. I love my community-- Wellesley feels like home.
