Women-focused. Leadership. Social awareness. Confidence and Conviction.
Prepare to change your life.
These are the words that are at the heart of your undergraduate experience and describe WELL—a program that propels you to take ownership of your life and change how you will see the world. From your first year to senior year, you’ll be part of a shared learning experience that weaves together WELL courses, leadership skills, career preparation, and community service.
WELL from year 1 to 4
Taught by full-time faculty and staff, be prepared to leave your comfort zone.
WELL Year 1: WELL 100
This is where you begin to connect your values with what you want to do: think of it as your passion and your potential. You’ll be introduced to the annual
University Theme through the first-year read. The book will also be your springboard in the WELL 100 class, where you start to shape your voice and style by discussions and writing. Your peer advisor, an upper-class student who has taken WELL 100, will help you navigate the transition to all aspects of college life, an important first step in gaining confidence.
WELL Year 2: WELL 200
Now you begin to tell your story. Not just in a classroom, but on stage. WELL 200 is taught in Bay Path’s Mills Theatre, home for our performing arts events. Your audience is your classmates and now it’s your turn to shine. You’ll be asked key questions such as “How do you present yourself?” “What is your body language?” “How do your relate to your listener?” These are skills you’ll be using in interviewing, networking, and presenting yourself professionally. It’s an essential part of building your confidence.
WELL Year 3: WELL 300
Get ready to launch. Get ready for your career or graduate school. You’ve taken part in job shadowing, mentoring, internships, and practicums—right from the beginning of your time at Bay Path you have been preparing for what happens after Bay Path. In your junior year with WELL 300, the Sullivan Career and Life Planning Center (SCLP) will help you take concrete career steps: interviewing, resume building, LinkedIn profile, and a portable e-portfolio that represent who you are and what you’ve done. Throughout the course, you’ll be receiving feedback not just from the SCLP staff, but professionals in your prospective field. From lawyers to accountants to counselors, your connection will be strengthened. The WELL program has been building to this moment--you’ll start to own your confidence and your convictions.
WELL Year 4: WELL 400
By WELL 400, you will be ready to blend all the skills you have learned during the WELL program—leadership, critical thinking, research, writing, analysis, and public presentation—with a community service project. Empathy, respect, and tolerance are the core human values that are stressed. It’s what every good leader needs to confidently show the way.
