Very clean. Knowing that FO had just started, we didn't get a very good sense, but it was still very nice on the tour.

The triple we saw was very big for a freshman dorm. Pretty messy, which made it look smaller, and dark, though people were asleep in the room. Looked liveable with a desk, raised beds with storage.

Campus Visit Notes for Wellesley College


Visit Description:

I absolutely loved this college. It was a really nice day, to start things off on a nice note. The info session was one of the best so far. There were only about 5 girls in the group, so we all got to ask questions. They covered everything and were knowledgeable when answering questions. The tour guide was really nice, even though I had to leave early. She "broke in" to a dorm room and asked the first person in the hall if we could see her (triple) room, which she did. The overall campus gave off a sense of community and "sisterhood", and everyone was really friendly and inviting. Not one person had something bad to say about the campus, and they have so many things to offer.
