Wells College—the Education of an Extraordinary Life
Wells College is a nationally recognized private coeducational liberal arts college located in Aurora, New York, on the eastern shore of Cayuga Lake. It was established in 1868 by Henry Wells, founder of the Wells Fargo and American Express Companies. Wells is known for small class sizes, strong academic majors, extensive and integrated hands-on learning opportunities, cross-enrollment with Cornell University and Ithaca College, and a wide range of off-campus study options, as well as our innovative new program in business and entrepreneurship. The academic program allows students substantial freedom to create individually unique educational experiences.
Educating students to think critically
The mission of Wells College is to educate students to think critically, reason wisely, and act humanely as they cultivate meaningful lives. Through Wells' academic program, residential atmosphere, and community activities, students learn and practice the ideals of the liberal arts. The Wells experience prepares students to appreciate complexity and difference, to embrace new ways of knowing, to be creative, and to respond ethically to the interdependent worlds to which they belong. Committed to excellence in all areas of its reach, Wells College equips students for lifelong learning and for sharing the privileges of education with others.
