Wellesley is an excellent liberal arts school because, in a nutshell, they teach you how to figure the world out for yourself. They have excellence in everything: faculty, location, students, campus, dining, residential staff, dorms, comprehensive studies, major and minor flexibility, inter-college communication, etc. You're surrounded by girls who are the top in their state and have been up to the national/international level in music, the arts, sports--you name it, you have it. The Wellesley woman is a good speaker, a talented writer, not afraid to ask hard questions, intense, diligent, and a level above other college students. We put...

    Wellesley is a campus full of extremely driven women working hard for success and change. The academic side of life at WC is incredibly stressful due to high expectations from professors as well as internal pressure most students place on themselves (we've got a lot of overachieving perfectionists). It's not a very social environment, but anyone looking for excitement outside of sports or org events can easily go to Boston any day of the week.

    An incredible space where you will be pushed academically, intellectually, and physically to be a better student. An incredible diverse student base where you become friends with people from diverse backgrounds. It is unique and incredible.

    The campus is secluded but not totally isolated. There's a ton of nature, and the architecture ranges from the super-modern science building to the gothic castles of Tower Court. The academics are top notch, and the vegan mashed potatoes are to die for.

    the food is outstanding, and the meal halls are in the dorms. all of the professors seem extremely approachable. it's extremely pricey to attend, but the experience, degree, and alumni network you leave with are worth it.

    Wellesley is a great, but relatively unknown women's college. The college will take care of you, but there are many things that require you to be from a certain level of society. It's secluded a little, but that can be a good thing and it is so easy to get off campus.

    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!
