Whether you are a first-year, transfer, or international student, we are looking forward to helping you start your journey at Wesleyan College. New Student Orientation programming is designed to help all new students in their transition to campus. Please see our programs below for more information about what to expect.
Summer Orientation is a one-day program required for first year students. You will discuss your course schedule with an academic advisor, learn more about student resources available on campus, and connect with current students, faculty, and staff. While you are in your sessions, your family will be invited to attend sessions to help them get connected to our community and learn about the resources available to them.

Before you arrive for Summer Orientation, please make sure that you have completed all of the requirements listed on the Accepted Students page. If you already know that you have an extenuating circumstance that will prevent you from attending a session in person (ex. you are a first-year international student or are traveling from another state), please email email@example.com.
Get ready to make Wesleyan your home away from home! If you plan to live on campus, make sure to submit your housing application as soon as possible to reserve your space. Residence Life will notify all new students of their housing assignment by July 15, 2019.
