    Take a walk around the beautiful lake on campus, go for a trip into Boston, or relax in the Starbucks or Peets coffee in the town of Wellesley.

    There are always cool lectures, talks, and events on campus. Thursday night is Pub Night, when students gather at the on-campus pub for a dance party and a beer. Otherwise, parties at Wellesley can be hit-or-miss, with a couple dependable staples throughout the year. A lot of Wellesley women frequent the MIT and Harvard social scenes, which can be a lot of fun. Olin and Babson down the street have their share of parties as well.

    Boston is nearby, nice little ville to go down the road, hanging out with your friends in your cozy dorm rooms, endless organizations to join, and parties both off and on campus!

    A lot of people go to Boston for fun, where you can either party in nearby colleges like Harvard, MIT, Boston College...or just go shopping/sightseeing...There are a lot of parties on campus, a lot of lectures or events also on campus every weekend. There is a shuttle every saturday that takes you to AMC and the nearby mall as well.

    Wellesley's on campus social life is definitely unique. Student org's and clubs plan events and such, but sometimes they aren't that great (especially if you are straight.) But it really is what you make of it. Most girls go off campus for fun, to Boston, MIT, Harvard, places like that. There is SO much to do off campus, and it's actually nice to keep Wellesley an academic environment, and then have your fun other places.

    Sledding on the big in hill when it snows! Go to the theater, check out the campus museum. Constant speakers. Dances. Opportunities to volunteer outside campus (in the community). Trips.

    Go to the Boston Commons. There's a really nice park, ice skating in the Winter, and nice movie theaters around there. There's a great comedy studio in Cambridge. And there's a thrift store near Kendall Square called Garment District which is really good.

    Well, often people are studying... But fun's to be there if you want it. Student government and various organizations hold several parties a semester on campus; if you want to do something on a Saturday night, the best bet is to go off-campus to one of the local colleges. But you will have to pay for transportation. That said, there are a huge number of orgs on campus for you to join as well as several Societies which technically are not sororities but really are. There's usually something happening on campus, whether a performance or a party or maybe just the weekly movies hosted by the cinema club, but campus is pretty quiet past 11.
