Wells' student organizations thrive with the guidance and assistance of our dedicated faculty and staff. Read about Elsie Torres, librarian and advisor to the student group POWER (Praising Our Work, Ethnicity, and Race).

Activities and Leadership

Because of the relatively small size of the student body, every student who is motivated can take a leadership role in a campus organization. 

Student Activities and Leadership Philosophy

Leadership: Assist students in developing leadership skills.
Collaboration: Teach students to recognize community interdependence.
Global Exposure: Utilize programming to cultivate positive relationships.

At Wells, even as a first-year student, you can obtain a position in student government, serve as an editor on a student publication, have a top role in a theatre/dance event or play on an athletic team. The following is a list of student organizations at Wells:
