Don’t Forget

Bring your camera, scrapbooks, Wesleyan memorabilia, music, and anything else that will make the weekend special. May weather can be unpredictable in New England; we recommend that you bring a light jacket and umbrella. Wesleyan’s athletic facilities and fields will be open throughout Reunion & Commencement Weekend; bring your suit/bathing cap/towel/racket/softball glove/Frisbee, etc., and check your final schedule for facility hours.

 

Special Assistance

The University is committed to full access and reasonable accommodations for all people. Please let us know by May 9 if you or your guests have any special needs. Contact Laurie Zolty in the Office of Alumni and Parent Relations at 860/685-3527 or lzolty@wesleyan.edu to make arrangements.

 

Weekend Meals

Wesleyan Campus Dining service prepares most Reunion & Commencement catering. We strongly recommend you reserve meals in advance to guarantee availability. Meals requiring advance purchase by using the enclosed form or online are:

Friday Welcome Picnic

Saturday Viva Italia Dinner

Saturday Reunion Class Dinner

 

There may be a limited number of extra meal tickets. These meals are available on a first-come, first-served basis during the weekend at Registration (Office of Alumni and Parent Relations, 330 High Street). However, to help us plan accurately, please purchase your meal tickets by May 9. Meal tickets will not be mailed in advance; you will receive the appropriate tickets when you stop by Registration to obtain your Reunion & Commencement Weekend welcome packet.

The Pi Café in the Exley Science Center will be open for breakfast, lunch, and snacks on Friday and Saturday from 7:30 a.m.–4 p.m. Advance registration is not required.

A la carte breakfast will be available on Sunday from 8 a.m–noon in the Davenport Campus Center. Advance registration and tickets are not required; however, for catering purposes, we do want to know whether or not you plan to attend.

There is no charge for the Saturday picnic lunch held during the Festival on Foss Hill or for the post-commencement reception on Sunday; therefore, registration and tickets for these meals are not required.

 

Vegetarian or Vegan Meals

A vegetarian or vegan alternative is provided at every meal.

 

Parking

Ample parking is available at the Middlesex Mutual Parking Garage (two blocks from campus at the junction of Court and Main streets) and the Vine Street parking lot (adjacent to the tennis courts) during Reunion & Commencement Weekend. Shuttle vans will run regularly between these lots and all sites on campus. Due to the recent construction on campus, parking in certain university lots will be limited. A few smaller lots will be reserved for members of the Classes of ’55 and earlier, as well as for any individuals with disabilities. A parking/shuttle flyer will be included in your welcome packet. Please let us know by May 9 if you require special parking by contacting Laurie Zolty in the Office of Alumni and Parent Relations at 860/685-3527 or lzolty@wesleyan.edu.

 

Shuttle Service

If you need a ride from Bradley International Airport (Hartford/Springfield), Tweed Airport (New Haven), or from the Meriden or New Haven train stations, we will do our best to accommodate your needs with our shuttle service. To make arrangements, please contact Sarah Myksin ’06 in the Office of Alumni and Parent Relations at 860/685-2418 or interns@wesleyan.edu by May 9. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee shuttle service for requests made after May 9.
