Clubs and Organizations

Clubs at Wells provide events, activities, and energy for campus throughout each semester.
Because clubs are based on the interests of you, the students, they are always changing — new clubs forming, new student leadership providing different programs, and shared ideas resulting in events that bring the campus together.
