Welcome to Wellesley!

For a quick overview of Wellesley, visit the Wellesley 100, which shares 100 marvelous things about Wellesley, set within a magical interactive online world; or the video playlist, a series of noble but incomplete attempts to capture the immensity of all that is Wellesley. Or read our student blogs.

After that, come on back. You can go a lot of places from here. Read about visitingcost & financial aid, or just apply already!  Gaze upon our quick facts, learn about our unique first-year experience, or contact us, which we would like very much. Start anywhere; bring snacks; travel well. 

Perhaps you can also meet a Wellesley representative in your area this fall. Admission counselors are traveling across the country visiting high schools, attending college fairs, and hosting informational meetings for you and your parents. See Wellesley On the Road for dates and locations; return often for updates.
