telescope and makes every effort to get students out into nature to experience science. E xceptional Education and Academics. Transformative Educational Experience

-Wellesley's student body is
extremely diverse. Less than
half of students are Caucasian,
and there is a significant

African-American students. Students come from over 60 countries and all 50 states. The ladies bond outside of the classroom by participation in sports, cultural groups, the arts, politics, and the famous "midnight breakfasts."

-Wellesley's offers 52 majors ranging from Philosophy to Geoscience to Medieval Studies. All Wellesley graduates must complete 32 units of credit with required courses in writing, foreign language, quantitative reasoning, and multicultural studies. Because it is a liberal arts college, students take many courses outside their major to become well-rounded women. One of the Best Colleges in the United States
-Wellesley is ranked in the top ten for liberal arts colleges in the nation. A Wellesley education fosters the highest standard of readiness for the "real world"
in its graduates,
in terms of ability
to think, act, and
contribute meaningfully and effectively in their chosen areas of interest.
