Wells is a small

Jan 29 2014History/Histories (art history/etc.)
Wells is a small liberal arts school, but honestly all the students here are friendly and accepting. School traditions are a big event on campus. Even though there are only 500 students, you still don't know everyone or see everyone, everyday. Athletics is a big part of the school.

Wells used to be an elite college, but now they will take anyone who can pay the $40,000/yr. tuition. Many students don't have basic writing or math skills and many others have learning disabilities, so the college feels like remedial school. Those with any talent or skills transfer out to go to a real school. Most professors have thrown in the towel and just give As to keep students there and the dollars coming in.

Mar 19 2013Economics
Wells gave me a foundation, a very concrete belief in myself, and my abilities, that I have a hard time believing I would have developed at any other institution. The opportunities to stretch yourself both academically and personally were outstanding, and as a result I knew going into the workforce that I was just as qualified, or honestly probably more qualified, than most of the other recent graduates. In fact, I received an interview, and ultimately my first job out of college, because the VP I interviewed with had heard of Wells and knew how challenging it was.
