STUDENT STORIES

Smiling Student MY EXPERIENCE AS AN ONE WELLESLEY SUMMER RESIDENTIAL ASSISTANT 
"In general, Residential Assistants (RAs) support the academic, living, and social experience at One Wellesley Summer -- we, as RAs, essentially wear many hats. We do everything from running evening community bonding programs, to hosting tutoring hours, to mediating roommate conflicts, and to making sure that no one sits alone in the dining hall..."

 

Smiling StudentDISCOVERING MY PASSION FOR WRITING AT WELLESLEY
"Though I didn’t know much about Wellesley, it was a college that I associated with producing women who were strong and independent. When I read about Wellesley's Pre-College Exploratory Workshops, I jumped on the chance, as a high-school senior, to explore life on the campus..."

 

Smiling StudentHOW WELLESLEY INSPIRED ME TO BE A MALE WGST MAJOR
"After long hours of Google searches, texting friends, and asking my parents about possible ideas for summer plans, I still could not find something to occupy my time for the summer. Being the summer before my senior year of high school, I knew that I wanted..."

 

Smiling Student MY EXPERIENCE IN WELLESLEY'S IMMERSIVE PRE-COLLEGE PROGRAM
"All my life, I had heard about how great Wellesley is from the women in my family who studied at Wellesley and loved it. However, it was not until I completed a summer term at Wellesley's Immersive Pre-College program that I truly saw how great Wellesley is..."

MY EXPERIENCE IN WELLESLEY'S PRE-COLLEGE WORKSHOP
"There were a few things I knew for certain when I entered Wellesley's One Week Pre-College Workshop: First, I had no clue what to expect. Second, I had no clue what flash-fiction was; and third, I was most certainly not going to an all-women's college..."

MY EXPERIENCE IN WELLESLEY'S PRE-COLLEGE PROGRAM, THROUGH PHOTOS
"Hi-- My name is Shermonie, and I am from Henan, China. These are all photos I took during the summer, when I attended a Pre-College Program. Not just any pre-college program though. I spent four weeks in a top women college…. Wellesley! Hooray!! I attended the program with..."

 

Smiling Student by the Wellesley College Entrance SignMY EXPERIENCE ABROAD: HOW WELLESLEY HELPED ME BELIEVE IN MYSELF 
"As I stepped onto the airplane, passport in hand, I had a lot of inhibitions. I kept thinking: “What if I didn’t fit in? What if I didn’t make any friends?” Having a familiar face in someone from my college, a junior named “Aanchal,” was a solace. But, I couldn’t stop myself from thinking..."

 

Smiling StudentWHY I CHOSE THE CONTEMPORARY WOMEN'S LEADERSHIP PROGRAM
"About a month ago, as I half-heartedly scrolled through meaningless Facebook chatter and blurbs, I stumbled upon Wellesley’s Contemporary Women’s Leadership Program through HerCampus. As a show-me-the-money kind of girl, I skimmed the article to..."

 

Gal Gadot as Wonder WomanWONDER WOMAN AND ME: WHY REPRESENTATION MATTERS
"Why does being in the Contemporary Women's Leadership program matter? How can I articulate what it means to be here, and I am perhaps alone in feeling something special about my experience here? Will I ever understand the importance of my time at Wellesley, or will the importance..."

SpeakingSPEAKING IN HER OWN VOICE
Girls who once dominated classrooms in middle school often become quiet in high school; girls who led their classes in math or science courses in their younger years all too often shrink into their seats as they mature.  Girls who know the right answer become all too ready to let the boy next to them...

 

Selfie

BUT WAIT; FIRST LET ME TAKE A SELFIE
How many times have you said that to yourself, or to a friend? How many selfies do you have on your phone right now? Did you know that selfie was the word of the year in 2013, the same year it made it into the official Oxford English Dictionary? And, if you search the word “selfie” on Google, you get...
