"Everyone in life has a different upbringing and background which in turn impacts their perspectives on certain issues and situations. With realizing that, I've learned to be more open minded to everything and everyone's opinions whether in class or on campus."

Student Activities and Leadership Philosophy

 The role of Residence Life at a small, residential, liberal arts College is to complement the academic goals of the institution as well as the academic goals of individual students. Wells College maintains the agility to offer individualized attention and care for our students, which is accomplished in part through living-learning communities built on genuine learning partnerships.

Student Leadership

Learn about the ways that students govern their peers and take a role in supporting their community. 

Clubs and Organizations

Clubs and organizations provide a chance to spend time with those who share your interests, make new friends, and build new skills.


Life at Wells is organized around a number of traditions that bring all students together for unforgettable experiences and memories. Learn about some of our most timeless campus events and programs. 

Activities and Recreation

Here in Aurora, there's still plenty of ways to keep busy! Learn about the activities organized by staff and students, local attractions, and opportunities to stay active on campus. 

Our mission is for every student to think critically, reason wisely and act humanely as they cultivate meaningful lives. On our beautiful lakeside campus, students gain the knowledge, skills and experience to create their own unique path.
