Wells College

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. The College is known as an exceptional value, pairing top quality academic programs with affordable tuition. With a full-time enrollment of about 550 students, Wells boasts small class sizes, an extensive experiential learning program, cross-enrollment with nearby Cornell University and Ithaca College, and a wide range of off-campus study options.

The rigorous academic environment emphasizes close faculty/student interaction, undergraduate research, off-campus study, internships, and active community service and involvement. Wells offers 17 majors and 39 minors, in addition to individualized programs. Formerly a women’s college, Wells became coeducational in 2005.

The scenic Finger Lakes region of central New York is an area known for its beauty and high concentration of outstanding colleges and universities. The village of Aurora is centrally located and provides easy access to metropolitan, cultural, and educational centers — 25 minutes from Ithaca; 1 hour from Rochester and Syracuse; 2.5 hours from Buffalo, Niagara Falls and Canada; and 5 hours from New York City.

Full-time employees are eligible for a wide range of benefits including health and life insurance, 403(b) retirement plan, long-term disability insurance, EAP, course attendance, dependent tuition benefits, 11 paid holidays and vacation, sick and personal time off.
