Parents and Families

Welcome. We are glad you found us and hope you will find much useful information here about life at Wells College.

"Working with students allows me to create a community to share ideas. My role is to model to students how to ask important questions about our shared human experience, and then how to interrogate these questions in a meaningful way."
