Wellesley--the college of women who make a difference. Lisa Liu had heard people say that before she entered Wellesley without knowing what it really meant.
Part of the reason she chose to attend Wellesley was because she had heard this saying and felt that she wanted to do that in life; that is, to be a woman who would make a difference in the world. Lisa entered Wellesley with that strong feeling and soon found herself overwhelmed with all the abstractions of college life: homework, time management, extracurricular research, and of course time to have fun. She met many like-minded people who balanced their priorities well and had a great experience. However, she also saw some people falter and fall under the newfound freedom of being an adult and away from their parents.
"But what makes Wellesley different," she says, "is that everybody knows how difficult it can be to keep to the right path and so the professors and faculty members do their best to always offer students the help they need." All opportunities have open doors, and many times Lisa saw students who faltered and sometimes strayed off the path return to their chosen path because of the guidance of people at Wellesley who took the time to notice the needs of the students. In Lisa's opinion, "Wellesley women make a difference because the people they know also make a difference--in their lives and their future careers."
