Wellesley College Visit Report by vwrun1
Campus Tour: Yes - What a beautiful campus! Granted, it was spring, but the landscape and Lake Waban were breathtaking. I loved Tower Court and Severance Dorms, and Pomeroy was also very nice.
Overnight Visit: Yes - I stayed with a member of the track team and her roommate in Pomeroy. The room was a nice size but was kind of hot for sleeping.
Campus Visit Notes for Wellesley College
This visit sealed the deal with me. All of my indecision was erased after my first day on campus. The camaraderie of the cross country/track team was strong, the dorm food was excellent, the campus was beautiful and bustling, and everyone was friendly and accommodating. I can't say enough about the great girls that hosted me and gave me a camps tour--they were unbelievably understanding and made me feel at home & among friends. Religious, ethnic, and cultural diversity is embraced at Wellesley, and the support for alternative lifestyles is very obvious to anyone visiting campus. The only complaint I have is of the lack of air conditioning in the indoor track area where the fitness equipment is.
Hotel/Lodging Recommendations or Comments:
My father stayed in the Hampton Inn in Natick, which is about an 8 minute ride from campus. Lovely, clean hotel with newly designed rooms and common area where a great breakfast was served.
Dining/Restaurant Recommendations or Comments:
Dorm food was amazing, especially at Tower. The student center (Lulu) was great, as well. Lots of veg options
