Whether you’re hoping to pick up your first paintbrush, grab your first gaga ball, paddle your first kayak, or strum your first notes on a guitar, you’ll find more than a dozen different activity options to choose from each day.

At Night, the Campus Comes to Life.

Join us for Cruise Night, catch a concert or improv performance, shake if off at a dance party — you name it. If it’s more mellow fare you’re after, check out movie night, or settle in at the Art Studio or Board Game Studio. There’s something for everyone, and every night is one to remember.

Sports and Athletics

Take a walk around Lake Waban with friends, start a pick-up game of volleyball on the quad, or join a sports clinic on the weekend. Whether you’re in training to match your favorite pro-athlete or you’re just looking to stay healthy with a light jog, we offer athletic activities and workshops to cover every base. You may also choose to take advantage of Wellesley’s expansive athletic facilities with instruction in competitive team sports like soccer, water polo, tennis, Ultimate Frisbee, or flag football.
