Wellesley College professor looks at sample in a lab science

They come to Wellesley because 1) they love teaching undergraduates, 2) they’re smart and accomplished, and 3) they’re attracted to the Boston/Cambridge nexus of smartness and accomplishment. There are eight students for every one of them, so students 1) know them as real people, and 2) could beat them handily in dodgeball.


Surely you would like to watch a short film in which we visit six professors and talk about things like genetics, bees, activism, Kendrick Lamar, microfinancing, and the most biotically rich lake in the world.
