    About Wellesley College

    Wellesley's motto, putting into four Latin words the outcome of the College's mission: To provide an excellent liberal arts education for women who will make a difference in the world. Smart, serious women choose Wellesley because it offers one of the best liberal arts educations—and total learning environments—available anywhere… but they graduate with more than a highly regarded degree and four memorable years. They leave as “Wellesley women,” uniquely prepared to make meaningful personal and professional contributions to the “real world” they are joining—and to be major influences in it. The world’s preeminent college for women, Wellesley is known for intellectual rigor, its belief in the enduring importance of service (and putting that belief into practice) and its cultivation in students of an inclusive, pragmatic approach to leadership.
