The mission of Wells is to educate students to think critically, reason wisely, and act humanely as they cultivate meaningful lives. Through Wells's academic program, residential atmosphere, and community activities, students learn and practice the ideals of the liberal arts. The Wells experience prepares students to appreciate complexity and difference, to embrace new ways of knowing, to be creative, and to respond ethically to the interdependent worlds to which they belong. Committed to excellence in all areas of its reach, Wells College equips students for lifelong learning and for sharing the privileges of education with others.
As far as the atmosphere, the campus is in a small town. However that does not mean there are few things to do. My school host many different events like dances, singing performances by local groups like Henry’s VII and Whirligigs, famous poet’s like Andrea Gibson, and premiers of plays like “I Am Hamlet” that go on tour in Canada. Wells continues to come up with things for students to do. In February a “Winter Freeze” event will be hosted giving away Wii gaming systems, cash, free laundry service, and many more prizes. Even though the school is in an isolated area, it does not limit your ability to find entertainment. Only if one chooses to isolate themselves will they find it boring. Like any school one has to get involved in order to full experience what the school has to offer. Also we have a shuttle service that goes down to Ithaca for $4 round trip everyday until late into the night.Read More

The only thing to do on campus is drink and watch tv on hulu. The only reason I'm on this site in the first place is to scope out schools to transfer tooRead More
