NEW PARENT ESSENTIALS

As a parent of a new Wesleyan student, we welcome you to the Wesleyan community! You and your student will begin to hear more often from Wesleyan throughout the summer. In the meantime, should you need any assistance please contact us at parents@wesleyan.edu.

We maintain a resource list of parents of current Wesleyan students who are willing to be contacted by parents of new Wesleyan students. If you would like to gain the parent perspective, please contact our office and we will provide you with that list.
