Visit Wells

A college that feels like home.
We're of the mind that a nice place to visit and a nice place to live shouldn't be mutually exclusive. In a location as authentic and naturally beautiful as ours -- the Finger Lakes of New York State -- it's easy to see why we think this way. And there's more here than just what meets the eye. At Wells, you'll have a unique academic experience – intense, engaged, and made personal to the high level of motivation of each of our students. Schedule a visit and see for yourself.

"There's a sense of humanity here rather than a sense of institution. That really spoke to me."
