Students are pretty much in accord: The town of Wellesley isn't here to cater to the students. In fact, it often seems town residents are trying to forget that the students are here. Wellesley is one of the richest communities in the country, and the shops and restaurants show it. Some students report they feel uncomfortable in the Ville, while others enjoy the exclusivity and convenience of the main drag that is Washington Street.
Boston is the saving grace for Wellesley students. Hop on the Exchange Bus or the Commuter Rail (see Transportation section), and you're in Boston in less than an hour. Make runs to CVS in the Ville for necessities or grab a bite to eat on a lazy Friday night, but don't expect to be partying anywhere nearby. Boston, for many students, is a beacon of hope (Real life! Parties! Men!) that breaks through the hazy, money-drenched clouds of the suburbs.
