  • Academic and career mentoring

  • Frequent extracurricular activities, often with distinguished visitors
  • Interdisciplinary Wells freshman seminars that address fundamental issues and are taught by outstanding faculty
  • Support for a summer internship, research or volunteer project, creative activity, or other enriching experience

Wells Scholars may major in any field offered at IU. Each Scholar works with a Hutton Honors College advisor to design a course of study that takes into consideration the student’s interests, goals, and strengths.

Freshman Scholars enroll in a Wells freshman seminar in fall and in spring. During the year, Scholars develop intellectual and personal bonds with their classmates while they read major works and discuss challenging ideas.
