What is your overall opinion of this school?

I loved my time at Wellesley though it was not always easy. As an alum is when you realize the power of the Wellesley network, and can fully appreciate the Wellesley experience. If you’re looking for a top academic experience, I would recommend Wellesley. However, I do recommend a campus visit before deciding to attend (I believe it’s free to apply so you might as well). While I barely noticed the women’s college thing during the school week it definitely isn’t for everyone.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, Wellesley College has a wonderful environment and atmosphere and is a wonderful place to attend with incredible people. The professors are incredibly helpful and supportive, as they want you to succeed. Administration provides some challenges, but it gives students the opportunities to fight back and make the changes they want to see within the college.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Wellesley College is a wonderful place to go, especially because of their financial aid policy. There are many opportunities for aspiring women leaders, including the Freedom Project and Albright Fellowships. You can also do the Wellesley in Washington program!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Wellesley is an incredibly supportive and intellectual community. Both peers and professors are inspiring and always doing amazing things. The academics are challenging but everyone is supportive--there is more competition with self than competition with other students, everyone is excited to learn.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love my school. It has made me grow into a strong woman who is not afraid to have a voice. With times like the ones we are going through, it is crucial that women of color SPEAK UP. I have been told this before, and it truly resonates with me: find a college that make your values stronger, and not weaker. I already knew what my ideals and beliefs were before coming to college, but now they're stronger than ever, and I am willing to fight for what I believe. I am constantly challenged to defy what I'm taught and think for myself. Professors are amazing individuals that can develop into mentors or friendships. The community is overall supportive, and the stereotypes of "cattyness" or etc that can be sexist remarks of women are not true at all, but rather, the opposite. We try to make each other stronger and encourage each other. Working for the alumnae office, I can attest to the amazing alumnae network we have. It's not just your current peers in school, but the thousands of alumnae that exist all around the world willing to support you. I am excited to graduate, and encounter a world that I know the largest women's network has my back.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I just recently graduated form an all-girl boarding school and so Wellesley, to me, is an extension of my high school experience, which is what I wanted. I applied Early Decision on somewhat of a whim, & I enrolled without having ever visited the school in-person. But I knew since Wellesley's visit at my school that Wellesley College is the right college for me! That said, Wellesley is a very rigorous institution that challenges its students in a myriad of ways. And as many issues that may have surfaced in the past year, there is still no other undergraduate institution that I would rather attend than Wellesley College.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Wellesley is an amazing place for people who are extremely dedicated to academics. The alumni network is incredibly strong, and it's a very safe place to live and learn. There is a generally supportive community of students and opportunities for every student to be involved in organizations, clubs, and student government. Research and study abroad options abound, and financial aid has been excellent in my experience. That said, the stress culture can be overwhelming - students tend to be competitive and shadow grading makes exams incredibly anxiety-inducing. Additionally, the "Wellesley bubble," while often comforting, can at times feel suffocating, especially for students who may not be used to the unique frustrations of small town living.
