The Wells Scholars Program offers a variety of extracurricular activities on and off campus. Regularly occurring events include a fall cookout for all Scholars and a fall day trip and spring retreat for freshmen Scholars.
Weekend workshops are another opportunity for Scholars to take their learning outside the classroom. Past workshops have explored topics such as:
- Humanitarian intervention
- Religious liberty
- Genetics research
- Television violence
- Healthcare reform
- Energy policy and climate change
In addition, special events throughout the year give Scholars the opportunity for informal interaction with distinguished visitors, IU faculty, and other students.
