    Get to know your professors (we have some of the best in the world) because they'd love to get to know you! Take advantage of all the resources and opportunities that the college has to offer. Make connections with students and alumni of all ages, disciplines, and walks of life.

    Be ready to work hard! Wellesley's academic life is rigorous, but professors here are also very caring and thoughtful. They care about student's learning experiences and they are more than willing to help students that are struggling.

    Wellesley likes to see some fire, some passion for learning. That is what will keep you afloat at this rigorous college. Take risks and challenge yourself. Engage with your teachers, coaches, and other adults to push yourself and think outside the box. Take classes and do extracurricular activities because you love them and you want to succeed at them-not because you feel like you are supposed to for a resume boost. Colleges like Wellesley appreciate authenticity.
