Overall Experience: Professors are good, administration sucks

Athletics: Lots of them, but there are favorites

Overall Experience: Wells makes you a brand new person, for the better

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I wouldn't choose my school because it is very small and far from home.

2 College Junior

Greek Life: We don't have any Greek life because it is such a small school there is just no room for it.

3 College Junior

Athletics: It's a division three school so winning isn't much of a thing. People still attend the games in order to support their friends and just have something to do when they aren't busy.

Overall Experience: Tight community that upholds an honor code and stays true to the traditions that have been around.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I like living on campus, the housing is close to the academic buildings and the ability to get around is easy. The atmosphere on campus is friendly and there seems to be no social problems on campus. The rooms are big and you can have a TV in your room.

Greek Life: We do not have Greek life on the campus.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: We are a division three college so you get division three level sport participates here. The sports are great to watch we have a outstanding girls basketball team. With the sports on campus you get a family on campus that will always support you.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: At this school there are a lot of opportunities to connect with others and they hold events to get people to talk to people you do not get to see every day. For instance we had a winter fest where there was free food, a chance to race you friends and peers on an inflatable race course and we also had the chance to print designs on cups for free.

Academics: The academics are really good. The professors are friendly and very engaged in class. Registration for classes as a freshman is a hassle because we go last for registration. Therefore a lot of the classes we need are already taken and its annoying. I was able to get my classes and I'm happy about that. The workload isnt a lot since I'm a science major but its a lot of studying and reading. There are various places to study and I like the library the most.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Campus security responds to everything as quickly as possible

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My professors really took time to get to know me, my likes, dislikes, things about my family. They ask about my overall wellbeing if they see I don't look okay or if they know I was having a rough day. They talk to me and give me advice on any issue I'm having even if it's not academic.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Nothing is perfect, there are somethings that could be fixed within our dorms and also there could be a better management of the social atmosphere in terms of late night quiet hours.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Overall, the school really does push you to get involved and interact with new people. I've met a lot of people I don't think I would have had they not introduced all these clubs and programs. Wells is a small school in which the DOS and professors really do take the time to get to know you personally. The Dean and President are both very involved on campus and take time to do activities with us. I would still choose Wells all over again because they really do make it feel like a family and they're really supportive. I don't think I would have found this anywhere else.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: Just enough to get. U to graduate

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: It works hard to advocate safety and secutity" it helps that the campus is two blocks long. And com pared to where I'm from this place is like the president's office

2 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It's only bad because I was placed on the same floor as some soccer players. Some are nice. Most are assholios. Yes I used a non word to emphasize the assholishness of the individuals

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: The athletic division is the core discrimination describes in the previous section. It consists of mostly arrogant individuals who create separation between themselves and normal students. This grandiose attitude, isn't addressed by the student board and is undetected by the staff. It makes me sick. I didn't pay $50000 a year for high school. I'm pretty sure I graduated. All teams relieve small turnouts for their games and usually are unsuccessful in their games. This low morale probably creates a spiral. In all honesty the teams are naturally closer together which is fine. However it's their lack of community sense outside of their teams that becomes aggravating. They act as if they're the pride of the school, place themselves on a pedistal and have little to show for it. I intend to confront this immature cliche nature as is is accepted but not right.

2 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I referred to the school as tragically ironic. Although the school means well and has programs to reinforce that positive image, the student body consists of more individuals than community. The majority of students fail to connect on many levels including race, religion, ethnicity, sexual preference and orientation. The school maintains traditional biases and efforts to unify the people have small turnouts. There is covert discrimination and and intolerance to difference that makes living there very aggravating. For me the most social aspect of the campus is the smokers table because many ppl from different backgrounds have a common ground based on something that is frowned upon by the rest of the school. In all honesty it's a great school but the students themselves are the cause of any and all social injustice and I intend to change it all by the end of my senior year

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Safety on campus is taken very seriously. We all signed an Honor Code in the beginning of the semester preventing students from doing a lot of actions. Also, security is open late and always available to call in case of emergency. People on campus tend to return things they find weather it be a notebook or a wallet. There is a high level of behavioral expectancy from the students that Wells takes very seriously.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Overall, I really like this school because it's hard to not find help. Professors, TA's, even the president of the school are open to talk to. The staff here make more of an emphasis to get to know people better. The school has a surplus of resources to use for projects, homework, computer support, education support, medical support, everything is open to us. Class sizes are really small compared to bigger universities and classes are more engaged. Professors and staff know you by name and make themselves available as often as possible.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There is a high quality of career aspects in this school. Wells associates themselves with other universities like Cornell and Ithaca for the convenience of the students. Setting up classes at their universality, internships, and employer recruiting. Wells has a employment center that opens opportunities to high level internships leading to experience required for students planing to go to graduate school/ My chemistry TA is a biochemistry major and did internships at Cornell involving NASA. Wells had free teachings on how to do taxes by bring representatives from the IRS to Wells. Also, most of the professors have connections to bigger employment opportunities like medical research, the United Nations, chairs in committee's like economics, Chemistry, Biology, etc... Wells offers so many opportunities and it's all available to the students.
