Wellesley College

Wellesley College is a private, four-year liberal arts college that was founded in 1870 as an all women's college. It is one of the few colleges that to this day remains a women's only college. Among women's colleges, Wellesley is the No.1 ranked college in the nation. Among liberal arts colleges, it's ranked No.4 in the United States.

Through a strategic partnership with several other higher education institutions, students accepted to Wellesley can cross-register at Brandeis, Babson, Olin College and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Through this program students can pursue a Bachelor of Arts (BA) at Wellesley while completing a Bachelor of Science (BS) at MIT or Olin College.

The student-to-faculty ratio at Wellesley is roughly 7:1 and the college has an average class size of 19 students. Through its Elisabeth Kaiser David Degree Program, non-traditional women students (ages 25 and older) who, for whatever reason, were not able to earn a degree at a younger age, are allowed to attend and complete their degree at Wellelsey.

Several famous woman politicians, diplomats and journalists, including Madeleine Albright, Diane Sawyer and Hillary Rodham Clinton, graduated from Wellesley College. With an admission rate of 30%, Wellesley is considered a fairly selective college.
