  • Staff Report 

Wells College announced its closure due to financial struggles and low enrollment, leaving many students, including committed high school athletes, in a difficult position.


Students chose Wells College for its small campus and proximity to home. They shared feelings of disappointment that the situation unfolded as it did, and officials handled the announcement as they did.

The sudden announcement forced many to start searching for a new college. While many had plans established for the fall by late-May, others were still uncertain about what was coming next.
