I really can't speak too much for this, but it seems like a typical, affluent suburb. [View Full Report]

Extremely blue-blooded and almost nauseatingly rich. I felt very uncomfortable and inadequate. [View Full Report]

Boston is an amazing city. At Wellesley as long as you show initiative, they will take care of you. There are an incredible number of internship and job opportunities in the area. [View Full Report]

Quaint MA town. Nothing much to do around there, though Boston is nearby! [View Full Report]

Wellesley is not a college hangout place and getting to Boston seems to take a lot of effort and time. That's one disadvantage of being at Wellesley because there is a certain sense of isolation. [View Full Report]

There are little shops, boutiques, banks, and churches. It is said that students use the Bank of America. I never looked too closely at the stores, but they seemed to be pretty expensive. [View Full Report]

Boston is 12 miles east of campus, and there is a bus or commuter rail, but it does seem like a bit of a hassle. There is a mall and other shopping in the town over (Natick). [View Full Report]

Its a rich suburb which means you aren't in danger of being mugged but it gets kind of plain and homogenous. [View Full Report]
