Wells is located in a very small town, but there are two much larger cities close by. Even if you don't have a car, Wells has vans that can drop you off and pick you up-free of charge. The local atmosphere is fantastic. It has a very small, homey feel and everyone is extremely friendly. We're right on the lake too, so during the fall semester there's a lot of swimming and boating.

Wells is located in the little, doll-house town of Aurora. It's quaint, there's a village market, an ice cream shop open for only the first few weeks of fall semester, an okay burger restaurant, a graveyard, a library, and inn, and housing.
If you really want to do something, take a van up to Ithaca. Students will complain about being in the middle of nowhere.
The campus is next to a lake, you could go swimming. There are usually activities planned every weekend on campus. We have a great three story library (which needs some repairs, as its weight is slowly crushing itself) and we have a cafe.
But the atmosphere is nice, friendly. The Wells campus and surrounding town is gorgeous. Just don't be too noisy at night in the town or be a disturbance. It's a lovely place to be.

There isn't alot to go to. town is almost an hour away, so if you don't have a car, you will be very limited. very community based. try to have lots of activities to do, but not many options.

The village of Aurora is very small, but it is absolutely beautiful! The view of Cayuga Lake is very serene and peaceful and I love to wake up in the morning and see the lake.

The general attitude of the entire population of the campus and the local town seems positive to me. The town is very rural and we have a bus system to get us everywhere, but there should be at least two buses running because it often takes a half hour to 45 minutes to get anywhere. If there's a full bus it could take an hour and a half to get anywhere too. The Backstage Grill at the school has great food, but the school at the dining hall can be dangerous because sometimes food like chicken and shrimp aren't properly cooked. I've almost eaten this but realized it wasn't cooked before getting sick. The foods only really good the first few weeks of classes, then you have to be careful.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
