Wells College Top Questions

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?


I knew a lot about this school before I came, and that is why I chose it. I already had friends before I enrolled because I had visited the campus so many times and felt included, however being here I appreciate the accepting environment moreso than I did before I started school.


I wish I had known that there aren't as many school activities as the college says there are. I know that most of the clubs no longer exist because of lack of student participation. Even though that is the fault of the students, more school should endorse the clubs more.
