    Wellesley is a motivated, driven woman's place to take risks, challenge herself, and learn unique tools for success. The professors are dynamite, the resources are incredible, and the campus is New England paradise. Then on the weekend, feel free to blow off some steam with friends in Boston and Cambridge!

    The environment at Wellesley is both physically and academically stimulating. You'll feel inspired to learn her and actively try to fit in with the environment. It's away from the city so you'll focus on your studies!
