"The culture at Wells I've found to be just innately friendly, and people say hi to you just if they know your face. I like that I can make friends in other disciplines and learn what they have experienced and what their expertise is."

Schedule a Personal Campus Tour

Our Admission team and student tour guides are delighted to be offering personalized campus tours this fall. Your safety and the safety of our community is our highest priority, and we ask that you call ahead or email us in advance so we can provide the very best experience. 

Wells is taking a number of steps to ensure the good health and safety of our admission visitors and the greater campus community including:

  • All visitors must submit to COVID-19 screening upon arrival at Wells.
  • Each visiting family will have their own personal tour guide.
  • The number of guests in the admissions building at any one time will be limited.
  • All guests will be asked to wear a mask or other facial covering for the entirety of their visit, as will admissions staff.
  • Much of the visit will be conducted outdoors, including the tour and if possible, the conversation with your admissions counselor.
  • Families who would prefer to maintain stricter social distancing protocols can schedule a student-led virtual tour.

Due to an executive order by the N.Y. Governor, we are unable to welcome visitors from any state or territory currently under travel restrictions. Please refer to the most current travel advisory list, and call us with any questions you may have.
