3 College Sophomore

Academics: The mathematics department has some great members who truly care about you succeeding. Both professors showed concern when I was not doing well in another class and helped me to get back to where I needed to be.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: Although we may not have a huge list of majors, Wells is in the process of adding more and more each year. A majority of the professors are awesome and very supportive. Figuring out classes can be tricky, but your advisors can almost always help you solve any issues you have ran into. Wells is very understanding when it comes to special study options! Many places students can be found studying are in: the library (of course), the science building has its own library, the hallways, and the café. On warm, sunny, days students love to go out on the year which overlooks the lake to study also!

4 College Sophomore

Academics: There are very few of us, but the advisers are great and the classes are fun.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: Academics at Wells are way more difficult then most people think. A lot of people who apply to Ivy League's also apply here. The professors have the highest level degrees and many also teach at Cornell.

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.
