About Wells

The Education of an Extraordinary Life

The exploration of ideas from multiple perspectives. Connection with a close community of professors and friends. Seminar-like classes that allow for deep discussion and scholarship. An emphasis on experiential learning, collaboration and real-world preparation. A breathtaking campus on the shores of Cayuga Lake. These are just a few reasons why Wells is not your ordinary college education.

  • A strong emphasis on experiential learning through internships, study abroad and original research
  • A first-rate liberal arts foundation that combines classroom theory with real-world preparation
  • The cultivation of global citizenship and social responsibility
  • A connected, close-knit community on a beautiful Finger Lakes campus
  • A high-quality, affordable education
