GO TO COLLEGE: Fifth-graders from M.D. Fox Elementary School in Hartford had the opportunity to experience college life at Wesleyan March 31. The students received a tour of campus by student tour guides and received lunch at MoConaughy Dining Hall during their half-day stay on campus.

In center, Suzanne O’Connell, associate professor of earth and environmental sciences, teaches the fifth-graders a “Rock Cycle Rocks” class. The students examined rock and fossil samples under a microscope.

Fred Ellis, professor of physics, teaches “Fun with Electricity" by having students charge the front and back sides of paper on a capacitor, which stores an electrical charge. The "go to college" experience was supported by the Connecticut Consortium for Higher Education, the Office of Admission and the Center for Community Partnerships. (Photos by Olivia Bartlett)
