Campus Visit Notes for Wellesley College
Having visited, I've decided to definitely apply to Wellesley! Everyone was incredibly friendly and one of the secretaries struck up a conversation with me while I was waiting for the info session : )
What really clinched it for me was the tour. Our tour guide was super-human. She led us around campus in 90 degree weather for 1+ hours, talking non-stop, and didn't even break a sweat. Campus was surprisingly large. She talked about the traditions (hoop-rolling), environment, academics, and really sold the school without seeming fake or disingenuous. It was obvious that she really loved it there.
Will definitely visit again when school year starts.
Dining/Restaurant Recommendations or Comments:
Wellesley being a very small town, food is kinda pricey. There are many, many, small cafes/restaurants and the variety is pretty good (there was American, Chinese, Thai, etc.).
Other Comments (Transportation, local attractions, parking, etc.):
Parking was very easy to find.
