    Wellesley College's holds many activities which students attend for fun. From an academic perspective, there is always a lecture with an guest speaker on campus, and Wellesley students to find attending these lectures to be a source of enjoyment. Previous speakers have been Wendy Sherman (lead negotiator for the Iranian Nuclear Deal), authors Salmon Rushdie and Amitov Ghosh, and former Secretary of State Madeline Albright. Aside from academically oriented lectures, Wellesley's student run organizations host many campus wide events for students. For example, Wellesley's Slater International House hosts cultural shows, various dance organizations hosts performances, and choir hosts free concerts. The Korean Student Association (among other clubs) hosts parties in the campus center, and the Japan Club hosts an annual Japanese festival. There are also various social tea's an even an annual bread baking workshop. These examples are only a sampling of the many activities happening daily on campus. In addition, Wellesley has a bus system which takes students in to Cambridge and Boston, giving students a chance to have fun off campus and explore one of the nation's largest and most progressive cities.

    Oh man. There's buses into Boston, MIT, Harvard.. There's buses to the mall, movies, and other places on Saturday. With Boston, there's an infinite amount of things to do. It is something you have to devote more than 3 hours to though. There's events like every weekend too, which are always great!

    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.

    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.
