4 College Freshman

Majors: This school not only looks at test scores but other elements such as GPA and activities on and off campus. There are no restrictions for any programs.

4 College Freshman

Majors: The workload is pretty manageable and the professors are all nice and easy to approach.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: for juniors and seniors drinking is common and on occasion, the school sponsors events that encourage drinking if of age. People are not vary visible on campus but you can usually smell it or hear about it.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Security is always available and there is a resource center on campus for women.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: People are very supportive of the athletic teams on campus. The athletic building is also very well equipped with a gym and indoor pool.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: There are resource officers on call at any time. They don't really care if people visit you but are welcome to reports.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I really don't know much about off campus living I am only a freshmen.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: All of the dorms are pretty nice and have their own perks for someone who would want tp live their. Laundry is free to do and all students must live on campus unless you are a senior.

5 College Freshman

Academics: As an English major I have really good professors who are helpful and know what they are doing. As a requirement of the college, you must complete two internships and as an English major they do not have to be specifically in your field, though it is better.

5 College Freshman

Academics: They have a wide diversity of classes and all the professors are very helpful. Registration can be stressful as a freshmen but you can usually get into the classes you need.

3 College Freshman

Weather: In the winter it is very cold and snowy but the spring and fall is pretty warm. Summer is very hot.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I haven't had any issues with financial aid.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: Everyone is super nice and non-judgmental.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: This school became coed in 2005 so girls still out number boys but there are a lot of cute boys on campus.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: They will take you anywhere you want to go and also have scheduled trips to the nearby towns.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: You just have to communicate with our drivers here on campus and they will try their best and meet your needs. However there are many occasions when its just not physically possible with the number of drivers and the places kids "need" to be.

Computers: Certainly computers available across campus, it just depends on if it works is the real question. A variety of the computers are Acer or old Mac desktops, so the server is working as fast as it can.

2 College Sophomore

Weather: I hate the weather here. I am from California, and on top of that, I have lived near a beach my entire life. Not only am I spoiled on weather, I have never been good about being away from an ocean of some sort, let alone surrounded by tree's. Upstate New York is not for everybody, but some people really love the weather out here: "It's great! I get to wear different clothes every season..." I don't get it though.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Make sure if you know what you want to do, that Wells has the specific major. Wells College academics are great, and the faculty are awesome at meeting with you. I just want to major in business and it's still in the 'works'....

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: There are a lot of different options, some owned by the professors at the college. There's apartments as well as the lake house. The quality depends on which off-campus house you chose. The lake house is the best, the apartments are lower quality. It's relatively easy to get permission to live off campus though.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: There isn't much to do on campus, so they put on a lot of dances on the weekends and try to plan a lot of activities. Everyone attends the dances, but the other activities are hit or miss. The only real student hang outs are in our rooms or our lounges, but we find ways to entertain ourselves.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I always feel safe on campus, but that has more to do with the atmosphere than the security. Security is rarely seen unless you need something unlocked or they're giving out tickets. Because of the honor code and the community though, it's a great place.

Off-Campus Dining: If you want to drive a half hour, the options are okay, but in town there's only two places to get food. Both are owned by the school. Both are kind of expensive, but they offer different kinds of food and they're pretty delicious.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: There are quite a few parking spots, but freshman get the worst parking. Sometimes people try to get away with parking in a lot that they don't have a permit for, but they get ticketed very quickly. There's usually always space (even if it isn't the one you want).

5 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: The Honor Code is very strictly enforced here. We have to sign a contract freshman year stating that we will follow the honor code. It's actually wonderful. I've been able to leave my wallet, keys, laptop, phone etc in public places for hours and I return and everything is untouched. No one ever locks their doors, and everyone is very trusting.
