Everything I wanted from a college as an educational institution Wellesley delivers. Beautiful campus as a huge bonus.
I loved Wellesley but it's not a school that's for everyone. It was a time for me to self-actualize into the person I was going to become and I'm not sure if that would've happened if I hadn't attended Wellesley. It was some of the toughest, most rewarding and empowering four years that I had in my life. I love how the small liberal arts college feel --> I love how small the classes are, how professors are so welcoming and while the journey for finding your people was hard, you will be able to do it, if you stick it out for long enough. It challenged me to go outside of my shell, both socially and academically.
Wellesley is an inclusive, accepting environment that allows students to reach their fullest capabilities without the pressing fear of failure
Wellesley is such an open and accepting environment, and honestly the happiest I have been in all of my academic life. Though the classes can be difficult and challenging, the staff and students are more than willing to help you get to your highest potential, and I truly feel supported here.
Wonderful campus, faculty members who care about their students, rigorous curriculum, talented peers, and robust extracurricular and professional opportunities.
Wouldn't ask for a better college experience! Everyone here is so connected, you'll really find your people.
I love the feel of the campus and how current students are very welcoming. I heard Wellesley has the strongest alumnae network in the world; alumnae are eager to help out the current students. This makes it easier for students to receive opportunities in various ways. Wellesley College is also prestigious and the academics are rigorous and challenging.
Wellesley College is a great school! It is a different experience for everyone, but it will be a good experience.
The campus is absolutely breathtaking and it is like a nice refuge from the stress and noise of the city, but you can still get to Boston easily when you are feeling daring and adventurous. Everyone is super friendly and willing to help each other out (professors included), but they do take their academics quite seriously.
love the profs, love the people! a great time all around. boston is an hr away by bus, super accessible :)
The campus is very beautiful and safe. It is also relatively quiet but if you want to visit Boston, it is also not hard to get there! Students here are very serious about their academics, but it is a very supportive community. Everyone is willing to help each other here.
Attending Wellesley was one of the best decisions I've made. Professors were extremely caring and nurturing, I was able to grow as a student and as a person and we had a major city right at our doorstep. Wellesley challenged me to think critically but gave me the space to learn my method of doing so. Most importantly though, attending Wellesley gave me a life long community of strong women who continue to support me personally and professionally. I cant speak more highly of my experience.
There was no online learning available when I attended the college. There wasn't that option because the majority of students live on campus
Wellesley was an incredible experience for me. It provided me with a nurturing environment that encouraged me to pursue both academic excellence and extracurricular interests. The campus is gorgeous and I met wonderful schoolmates, some who are my closest friends today, decades later. Most of my professors were excellent and rigorous and highly dedicated to their field. I could not have imagined a more ideal place for me during those formative years transitioning from living at my family home to becoming an adult.
Beautiful campus. Lots of resources are available for students, especially research and labs for STEM majors. There are also programs for low-income/first gen individuals that are really helpful. The students also look out for eachother for the most part.
Professors adjusted well and were very understanding. Online classes decreased workload, but I heard it was difficult for those on opposite timezones.
I've loved Wellesley College so far, such a beautiful campus with great academics and friendly, smart students.
I learned a lot, both in and out of the classroom, which sounds like the biggest cliche. However, I really did make friends that I know I'll have for the rest of my life. Even though my senior year was ruined by COVID, I know that I'll always love Wells. Would highly recommend taking a Calderwood seminar (writing-based seminars). I took two and my favorite was economic journalism with Prof. Dan Sichel. 10/10 would recommend Wellesley.
I met some amazing friends and really had a nice incubator to become more fully myself. I understand that this is not what everyone needs to get out of college, but I really needed that.
