About Wellesley College
Wellesley College is a premier four-year liberal arts college for women located in the greater Boston area. Home to 2,350 undergraduate students representing 50 states and more than 87 countries, 49 percent students of color, and 17 percent first-generation college students, diversity and inclusion are a way of life at Wellesley. The college is situated on a beautiful 500-acre campus. There, students enjoy the best of both worlds: first-rate instruction in a breathtaking setting and easy access to Boston – the academic, medical, cultural, and historic hub of the northeast. Wellesley students take advantage of cross-registration with MIT, Babson College, Brandeis University, and the Olin College of Engineering, as well as the Twelve College Exchange, and over 160 study abroad programs.
Wellesley's motto, Non Ministrari sed Ministrare, captures the College's mission to provide an excellent liberal arts education for women who will make a difference in the world. With a rich history, an established reputation for academic excellence, and state-of-the-art resources, Wellesley College provides its students with a comprehensive liberal arts and sciences education. Wellesley offers more than 1,000 courses across diverse academic disciplines and over 50 majors. With a 7:1 student-faculty ratio, Wellesley professors are accessible and known for their outstanding commitment to teaching, academic and career advising, and scholarship. Faculty and students frequently collaborate on research, publishing papers and presenting at academic meetings. Wellesley students regularly cite the excellence of the faculty as a core component of the transformational learning environment.
Wellesley's innovative career education model is designed to prepare and inspire students to craft a lifetime of opportunity and to reach their full potential. The model illuminates the strengths of the liberal arts education and encourages active participation of the full College ecosystem to support every Wellesley woman from the moment she arrives on campus through her alumnae years. Success is demonstrated in student outcomes: 98 percent of the Class of 2021 graduates were employed, accepted to graduate school, participating in a service/volunteer program, or serving in the military within six months of graduation.
