SOC Program


APRIL 16-18, 2014


Congratulations on your admission to Wesleyan University!

The program began in the 1970’s as a student-driven initiative to support the University’s efforts to attract and enroll students from historically underrepresented groups.  Over the years, this program has evolved and changed, but the primary goal of increasing the number of Students of Color in the community continues to be the motivation.
We invite you to explore the campus, visit classes, and participate in events sponsored by current students that celebrate and highlight the diversity in the Wesleyan community!  The program runs concurrently with WesFest and is designed to allow you to participate in the events planned for both programs.  By signing up for the Admitted Students of Color Program, you are automatically registered for WesFest. To view a tentative schedule of events we have planned for you, visit the side navigation bar and click on the day you wish to view.  To register, please click here.

"I'm constantly breathing in air polluted with creative energy. I have never met so many personalities, established so many friendships, participated in so many events, explored so many buildings, discovered so many tunnels, appreciated so much beauty, and envisioned so many possibilities in a single day as I have today.  Absolutely proud to call Wesleyan my new home."  -- Gerard Liu, 2015
