3 College Senior

Guys & Girls: Wellesley is all women. The students at Wellesley are all eager to learn and support others to do the same. The academic environment is one of the best I have ever experienced. Socially, everyone involves themselves in the groups that most interest them and over-scheduling is very common. Everyone is eager to lend a hand and help to make Wellesley an even better place for all.

Guys & Girls: It's great if you are interested in dating girls. There are tons of girls who date girls, and there's a wide range of looks and interests among these girls. If you are a straight girl, it's way, way harder.

Guys & Girls: I go to an all girls school, so there are no guys on campus. However, the girls are very friendly and great to be around.

While resisting the request to sum up the cool quotient of their fellow students, Wellesley women did not hold back on their critiques of the area men. The dating pool tends to be guys from Boston-area schools, so there's a range. Wellesley even has a T-shirt that sums up the common opinion of MIT guys: "MIT: where the odds are good, but the goods are odd." Wellesley women also date men from Harvard, BC, BU, Northeastern, Berklee (music school), Babson, or any number of the dozens of schools in the area.

Wellesley has bois (transgender students), but no boys. The girls run the gamut from frumpy to gorgeous, but on the whole,  they are smart, and this wins them serious points. They also tend to be passionate, which is excellent, although too much earnestness can get grating. Lesbians seem to be happy with the dating pool, and heterosexuals seem thrilled with the friends they've made.

Social Scene
Wellesley has several different social scenes. Some heterosexual students throw themselves into the MIT frat scene, while others keep a cynical distance and agonize over their lack of coed interaction. Most find their groove, however, whether it's lots of girls' nights out (or in), or alternative male contact through extracurricular activities, friends of friends, or chance meetings. Those who are, as one student put it, of "the girl-kissing persuasion," find a welcoming social community.
Hookups or Relationships?
Many students complain that while it is easy to find men to hook up with, it's not nearly so easy to make male friends or develop long-term relationships. And despite jokes about lesbians' tendency to commit to a lifetime on the first date, many members of the queer community say the same thing. Nevertheless, it seems like Wellesley women do pretty well for themselves, and a good number are in committed relationships.
Dress Code
Class-wear really varies. Some wear pajamas (almost out of a feeling of obligation-it is a women's college, after all), while others dress up in Gucci. Most, however, stick to jeans and sweaters. There are jokes that the Science Center is the realm of the Wolf Shirt Girl (an official Wellesley Type, replete with tapered, pleated jeans, Keds, long straggly hair, and an over-sized T-shirt), while econ majors please the profs with sweater sets and pearls. On big nights out, black sparkly outfits fill the F#%! Truck.
