At Wells, we welcome students who are, above all, open to learning. Whether that comes in the form of ideas they're not familiar with, experiences that broaden what they're capable of, intellectually-stimulating experiments, or hands-on learning, it all leads to one thing: a thoroughly-prepared graduate. And our students do graduate prepared. Whatever is next in their lives, whether an advanced degree, a focused career, a series of new and varied opportunities, or a lifetime of learning—they welcome the future ready to live life to the fullest.
The exploration of ideas from multiple perspectives. Connection with a close community of professors and friends. Seminar-like classes that allow for deep discussion and scholarship. An emphasis on experiential learning, collaboration and real-world preparation. A breathtaking campus on the shores of Cayuga Lake.
