I felt smart, for the first time, and was rewarded for my hard work. The confidence instilled in me by the caring professors, coaches, and staff—the fact that they genuinely cared about my success as a person—continues to fuel my ongoing successes (and challenges). I cannot imagine my life without my experience at Wellesley.

I am so grateful that I had the opportunity to luck into Wellesley. I loved meeting after hours with my English professors, who were so smart and interesting, just to talk Shakespeare. And basketball. The school is not for everyone, but for me it was perfect and I will continue to support it as long as I can.
