New Student Orientation
New Student Orientation (NSO) is a comprehensive introduction to Wesleyan University. The program helps students build a foundation for academic and co-curricular success. Students will build relationships with other students, faculty and administrators and have important discussions about values, traditions, and community standards at Wesleyan.
New International Student Orientation
International Student Orientation begins prior to NSO, to give international students time to recover from travel and acclimate to campus, make cultural adjustments, and connect with campus resources. ISO also offers sessions that address health and medical insurance issues, programs about cultural adaptation, weather adjustment, and liberal arts education, as well as informational sessions about US systems that many international students are not familiar with or are very different from their home country.
Join members of the Class of 2017, new transfer students, and their families for a casual summer social as they prepare to head to campus. This is an opportunity to meet others new to Wesleyan, as well as current students and their families, alumni, and friends of Wesleyan. The Summer Sendoff web site will be updated on a rolling basis throughout the spring and summer. More details will be emailed in the spring and throughout the summer to parents, students, and alumni.
