"I think one of the things that really drew me to Wells was how important student participation was and how you could be involved in so many different aspects on campus. I help organize events and participate in the discussions, which is awesome because the small size makes everyone's voice heard."

We're excited to be Wells—and we want you to be just as thrilled to be here with us! We've taken a fresh look at our academics—pairing intellectual rigor with a practical approach. We've made it updated, modern, relevant and appealing to everyone's eye. If that sounds intriguing, give us a look. Come visit us, virtually and in person. Get a feel for who and what we are. Not for everyone, but perfect for many.

That's kind of a bold statement, but it's true. Do you love to learn? Are you curious? Do you dive into new challenges and experiences head-first? Are you interested in one-on-one attention from professors who truly value your ideas and contributions? Are you open to different ideas, perspectives, and experiences? Do you cringe at the thought of getting lost in a sea of faces in an enormous lecture hall? No, Wells is not for everyone. But if you answered yes to any of the above, we just may be the right college for you.

We welcome you to become a part of our strong academic program and close-knit community of scholars. As always, we invite your comments, ideas and questions. We'd love to show you around our beautiful, lakeside campus. And even more than that, we can't wait for you to become a student here.
