"The students I met here came from all sorts of different places, and I was afraid at first I might not be able to make any friends, but everyone was so nice and open. We spent so much time together. It was really amazing how close we just got in one month." - Herrinah, Canada

"Wellesley College has been on my radar since the beginning of high school, and Wellesley’s Pre-College Summer Program was the perfect opportunity to immerse myself in a college setting for a week. I got a feel for the campus, took a class, learned more about the school, explored Boston, and had fun with new friends." - Audrey, USA

“What impressed me the most is how strong the community is [at Wellesley]. There are so many women who have so much potential and they just push each other to do better and better." Nuha, Dhahran, Saudi Arabia

“The summer program taught our daughter how to be more independent as both a thinker and a learner. She came home more grown up and ready to conquer her senior year of high school." Shari, USA
