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.

As a junior, I can say that coming to Wells was the best decision of my life. I could not have asked for a better college experience. Though there isn't much around Aurora, you have to create your own fun. That's why Wells offers so many different activities and leadership positions. If you don't get involved, it will be difficult to acclimate to the school. The professors care about the education they provide their students and are willing to work to the best of their ability to ensure all of their students succeed and while there is not much of a party scene or any little bit of Greek life, there are numerous events at Wells that can satiate those needs. Wells is a community driven school and it is a school that definitely requires students to be motivated and determined. Traditions like Odd/Even are unique to the school and are only some events of what makes this school truly one for the books. These traditions keep our schools community together.
