President's Welcome

Welcome to Wells. For generations, this College has offered an intensely personal education, rooted in the liberal arts as well as the belief that only when lives are fully explored can they be fully lived.

I'm grateful that at Wells, not only am I able to greet our students by name, but I get to know them well—as do our professors. Here, we make meaningful connections that open opportunities and enrich our lives. We nurture the interests and strengths of each and every student, ensuring that their courses, hands-on experiences, and student activities create a path toward a successful and fulfilling future. Students who enjoy small class discussions, internships, rigorous academics, global opportunities—and some unique traditions—thrive at Wells. Our exceptional graduates, in all walks of life, are a testament to the strength of Wells. This small, connected community values curiosity, diversity, and service to society. We continuously evolve and expand our programs to support international experiences, experiential learning opportunities, and curricula that equip students for an ever-changing world. We hope you'll not only visit our website, but also come to see us in person. In addition to our idyllic lakeside setting, you'll find welcoming smiles and a vibrant campus. I invite you to see what makes us a one-of-a-kind community.

Jonathan C. Gibralter

Our mission is for every student to think critically, reason wisely and act humanely as they cultivate meaningful lives. On our beautiful lakeside campus, students gain the knowledge, skills and experience to create their own unique path.
