    Wellesley College Science Center

    1 review

    Forget the science, come here for the architecture! This unique modern structure was actually constructed around an older, smaller building, yielding interesting features such as a (formerly) outdoor street light inside the entry. The new glass facade allows a huge amount of natural light into the library and the four story atrium. You can still see the brick facade of ...

    Founders Hall

    1 review

    Studying classics at Wellesley College, I spent a lot of time in the historic classrooms of Founders Hall. Unlike some of the other buildings on campus, Founders hasn't been renovated recently. It does make the building feel old, but I always thought it was fitting as the setting of so many history, religion and classics course. See if you can ...

    Hazard Quad at Wellesley College

    1 review

    The Hazard quad is one of Wellesley's main residential complexes. Although a little on the older side, these dorms have aged like a fine wine - they are still comfortable and well kept but have gained history (and a few ghost stories!) along the way.

    Lulu Chow Wang Campus Center

    1 review

    The architects of this funky building seem to have endeavored to build this structure without using a single right angle! The walls jut out at strange angles, giving each room a slightly drunken feel - perfect for a college campus! At least the floors are level. In addition to the typical lounges and meeting rooms and student mail center, there ...

    1 review

    Galen Stone Tower rises high above Green Hall on the Wellesley College campus. The tower holds the college's carillon, a bell instrument that is played regularly by a student group and can be heard miles away. Access to the highest reaches of the tower is usually limited to public carillon events, but if you do fobs the opportunity to visit ...

    Lake Waban

    1 review

    There are few experiences more serene than walking walking around Lake Waban. Starting from Wellesley College, the picturesque path passes the gorgeous gardens of the Hunnewell Estate and peaceful New England woods. According to Wellesley College lore, it is a tradition for Wellesley students to walk three times around the lake with their suitor. If after the three laps the ...

    This historic building at Wellesley College mainly houses classrooms and academic offices, but the most spectacular feature is Galen Stone Tower rising above it. Green Hall is one of the oldest and most interesting buildings on campus, decorated with stone carved Gothic figures.

    Paramecium Pond

    1 review

    Paramecium Pond is an icon of Wellesley College. Ask any Wellesley College alumna, and she is sure to tell you stories of ice sharing skating on Paramecium Pond in the winter (although the tradition is getting less common these days!). In the spring and fall, this is one of the most photogenic spots on campus with the flowers and trees ...

    Stone-Davis Hall

    1 review

    Stone Davis Hall at Wellesley College technically includes two dorms, connected in one stately C-shaped building. Like most of the older buildings at Wellesley, it is built on a small hill but nearly hidden in trees. The courtyard in back is usually a peaceful place to enjoy in warmer weather.

    Clapp Library

    1 review

    Housing the immense collections of Wellesley College, the Clapp Library itself is a storied structure. The facade is clearly separated into a series of vastly different styles, beginning with the classical architecture of the original building and spanning the decades as new styles came in vogue as the structure was expanded. Inside, the library is peaceful and full of natural ...

    Tower Court

    1 review

    This historically registered dorm complex at Wellesley College offers breathtaking architecture, sweeping views and more than a few ghost stories! The main gathering area is complete with (uncomfortable) carved antique chairs and furniture while the courtyard is probably one of the most photogenic locations on campus.

    Wellesley College Boathouse

    1 review

    Although this little boathouse tucked on the shores of Lake Waban has seen better days, it still serves its purpose with grace and charm. The historic wooden boats housed here are usually used in Wellesley's storied class crew tradition. However, sailboats and smaller boats are also stored here.

    Beebe Hall

    1 review

    In its exciting history, Beebe Hall has picked up its share of ghost stories, making it one of the most (supposedly) haunted buildings on Wellesley College campus! Legend has it that Beebe was built one story taller than it currently stands, but the top floor was removed to rid it of a mysterious "lady in black." Ghost stories aside, this ...
