Wellesley welcomes the Class of 2016
Wellesley welcomed 586 members to the Class of 2016. Jennifer C. Desjarlais, Dean of Admission and Financial Aid, reports, “The Class of 2016 represents 33 nations of citizenship, including places as varied as Australia, Ghana, and Uzbekistan, as well as 38 states. These enthusiastic first-years bring wide-ranging and eclectic interests, a multitude of academic and extracurricular talents, and a diversity of perspectives.” See Admission Statistics and Student Demographics, as well as complete statistics for the Class of 2016 in the Admission Report.
You may be surprised to learn that a Wellesley education (at $55,000/ year) may be more affordable to more students than you might think.
Excellent Outcomes from the Liberal Arts at Wellesley
“Complex modern problems require not just leadership, but the ability to collaborate and navigate through multiple interests and viewpoints. There is no better foundation than a Wellesley education for integrating knowledge across disciplines without losing sight of the human dimension.” – H. Kim Bottomly, President of the College
