Majors: I haven't had an internship yet. But I heard they are pretty great. The CWS office helps students with their resume and prepare them for the future career.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I've only been to Amarin of Thailand and Lemon Thai, so I can't speak for all options, but I think the Thai places are great.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Academics are much more important than sports. We don't even have a school mascot. However, for those students who are interested in athletics, I think the facilities are sufficient.

3 College Freshman

Majors: I wished we had more option but its a liberal arts college so i guess it ok

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Rooms are a bit small especially on the West side

2 College Freshman

Party Scene: Think of a college party... now Wellesley does not have that... at all. The campus parties are not very fun unless you are really drunk. Parties off campus are best. Harvard and MIT are the most convenient and tend to be really fun. Tons of free alcohol

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: Very good at meeting need

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

The nightlife stinks, it's too darn strict, and students constantly battle the fear of four years of celibacy. Hold on, why do Wellesley students love this place again? Oh, right—the academics rock, it's possible to make shockingly amazing friends, the campus is gorgeous, and graduates wind up with a prestigious name on their diplomas. Some students might feel they're missing out by coming to Wellesley, while others say they're gaining incredible resources of support, critical thinking, and endurance. Whether or not they're happy about it, this latter group is right.

A community like Wellesley College would be difficult to achieve in a coed environment because living at Wellesley is like living with 2,300 sisters—you complain, you fight, and you talk about sex in ridiculously frank ways. You hate and love each other at the same time. Wellesley is intense and bizarre, both restrictive and liberating. Students learn to adapt, or they learn to overcome. Most importantly, though, they become Wellesley women—an unexplainably close bond that they hold with all of their sisters who have attended this fine institution.
