Visit Wells

A college that feels like home.
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. There is so much more here in Aurora, NY than what meets the eye. Your Wells experience will be intensely engaging and uniquely yours. Schedule a visit and see for yourself through a personalized tour of our beautiful campus!
