2 College Sophomore

Diversity: The diversity is good in a bad way, and by that I mean that the LGBT groups are rather hostile to any masculine appearing male or feminine appearing female. Differences of sexuality are very well accepted, but there is some racial hostility among some of the white students from upstate New York and nonwhites from everywhere else. Racial jokes are common. Prepare to be verbally attacked if you're heterosexual and you and your partner breath in the wrong direction.

Diversity: Everyone is super nice and non-judgmental.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: There are people from all over the world here. It is exciting to meet people from other places and learn about their background and different customs. Everyone is accepting of each other here; it does not matter whether one is black, white, Jewish, Muslim, or Catholic. The diversity is what makes Wells so special.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: Considering that Wells is such a small school, there aren't many different diverse groups, but we work with what we have, and I consider this school to be the a great school
