Our Hosts

Wellesley College is one of the most beautiful campuses in North America. Wellesley's 500 acres include a private lake, a golf club, groves of conifers and hardwoods, and winding paths through open meadows. Stunning brick and stone buildings rise from wooded hills. From almost every window on campus, the view opens out to an inviting vista—through pine trees to the shores of Lake Waban, down sweeping lawns to century-old oaks with magnificent gnarled branches.

The Keohane Sports Center is the focal point for recreation and fitness at Wellesley College. It is home to 13 varsity athletics teams, a diverse physical education curriculum, and a wide variety of recreational, intramural, and wellness activities for the entire College community. In 2002, Wellesley College opened four new athletic fields and a track. The complex includes a turf field for lacrosse and field hockey, an eight-lane track, grass soccer field, softball venue, and two recreation fields for PE classes and club activities.
