This fall, Wells College will host two open house events for prospective students and families on Saturday, Oct. 26 and Saturday, Nov. 9, 2019. Morning and afternoon sessions are available on both days.

Visitors will spend a fall day on our beautiful campus, enjoy a tour, get to know the Wells community through one-on-one connections with professors, coaches and current students—and learn what makes Wells a unique and truly personalized experience.

"Selecting the right college is one of the most important decisions a person can make," said Gerard Turbide, vice president of enrollment management. "Choosing Wells is making an investment in your future. I'm looking forward to introducing our visitors to the purposeful, transformative experience our students have in our vibrant, inclusive community. Simply put, Wells College is a campus you have to see to believe," he added.

This year, the admissions team is accepting applications for priority review—meaning that prospective students who apply by Oct. 22 (for the Oct. 26 open house) or Nov. 5 (for the Nov. 9 open house) will receive their admissions decision in person on the day of the event.
