It's an overall decent school for all sorts of students. Great science department. The food in the dining hall could definitely be better, but they're trying their hardest to accommodate for all sorts of students. Very lively as well and not that loud since campus is small.
My home away from home. Wells is academically driven, with little party scene. Your professors make it incredibly easy to reach out, at no point should you feel like you are struggling. The connections you make are unlike anything I have every seen. The community is immaculate. It is a close knit community with a place for everyone. You wont disappear on this campus. You make friends that will last life times and create a schedule that suits you and your interest. You have guidance on the career path chosen, free time and clubs for every interest to choose from.
The school has a lot of things needing to be fixed. They think that right now they are on the right path to fixing it, but they are not for many things. The food system is currently a nightmare. If you have any food allergies, don't go to this school. As for other accommodations, the faculty are wonderful about helping you as long as you talk to them and always have been. Other staff can be tricky, but it's all about saying it the right way to the right people. You're really going to need to visit the campus on a regular school day and talk to some students outside of admissions to get the truth about pros and cons of Wells.
At Wells, you either love it or you hate it. For me, I've learned to love it here. Compared to my freshman year, it was a bit difficult coming from a huge city to a rural area and having to travel 35 minutes to the nearesr mall. But, going into my third year at Wells, I've found that the community and the unique aspects at Wells are something I am definitely going to miss here. I've had to compromise on a lot of things I was looking forward to in college like greek life and a huge sports team, but I wouldn't trade my experience here and the people I've met for anything!

Well the first bit of advice I?d give myself is not to become too involved your first year. There is plenty of time to experience all of what college has to offer, but take it slow. Don?t hang out with friends all the time; get your work done first. Otherwise reading will pile up and set you back even further than before. Also learn to research by using books from other libraries. The facts from books will make your arguments much stronger. Go to your professors in the very beginning of an assignment with what you believe was assigned. By talking with your professors early on you find out exactly what they want. Be productive and don?t let yourself become distracted by working in your room or around friends. Go to quite places like the library whenever doing an assignment. Beware of partying too much, it might be fun that night; but when you wake up the next morning and realize you have a 10 page due tomorrow, the fun kind of vanishes. You have to remember why you applied to college in the first place, to learn and become successful at what you want to be.
The small size of this school makes it easier to make friends. You know almost everyone in your class and pretty much everyone is fairly friendly.
A person who is looking to party all the time and float along through academics. Wells College is a place where academics come first, then clubs and athletics, lastly social life outside of those two. Classes are small, so you won't be a number, which means floating along just doesn't happen. A person who doesn't enjoy tradition would not enjoy Wells, we are deeply rooted in our traditions and connections to our history with other Wells alums. Lastly, a person who is ignorant wouldn't like Wells because we have no tolerance for intolerance.
Its traditions, small classes, history, location and its alumnae connection. It was once a women's college and now is a co-ed institution, this process has given Wells students an interesting and very different philosophy and education.
Wells College has a great sense of community and the traditions really get people involved.
Wells College unique size is what I loved, we are very small but with so much to offer.
Before coming to this school, I wish I had known more about how to plan out your classes to be sure that you can complete your degree on time (for classes are not offered every semester or year; sometimes they are offered once every two years, etc.).
My classmates are some of my closest friends, we help each other out with everything from academics to understanding the different collegiate processes.
I brag about our traditions. It's a great way for every student to get involved and keep the Wells College spirit alive.
The worse thing about my school I guess would be the food. A lot of the food comes out more then once in 2 weeks and we always have hambergers, pizza, and french fries.
The most frustating thing is the location, as it can make it hard to get to places or get items you need as a student. There are shuttles that run to Ithaca, a close city (about 40min away), however the shuttle times aren't always the most convienient. This also causes students to not be able to do things most other college students can easily do or have within walking distance such as restaurants, movie theatres, bowling alleys etc.
