Be prepared for hot days and cold nights because a) there are no a/c in any of the building, fans and maybe a dehumidifier are highly recommended and b) the heating system gets way too hot for comfort during the cold days. The rooms are small and there is not a lot of space for ALL of your stuff, especially if you are rooming with someone. The lottery system is a pain, and it also depends on if there is enough space for you anyways! This year, we had people waitlisted for rooms because of how many students were coming. The campus is old and so are the dorms so if you are into the "antique" setting of the building then you will love these houses, especially Glen Park house.

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!

I like the diversity here at Wells College. Although this used to be a women only college, it has grown to show very minimal discrimination by allowing males to attend, as well as having an area in the residence halls where it is not gender sensitive. There are so many different types of people who attend Wells College. It's great to see such diversity within a community that gets along so well together. Even though there are different races, genders, and sexual preferences among students, there never seems to be a problem getting along. We are all one unit and we make up an amazing community together!
