Congratulations Parents and Families!

This is an exciting time for you and your student, the culmination of many years of hard work, support, and encouragement. We are thrilled to be able to share it with you and to invite you to be part of our vibrant Wesleyan community.

1. Explore our Parents & Families website

Learn about the many ways in which we partner with our parents and families to support our students through their entire Wesleyan career. Find additional family-specific resources to help you stay connected.

2. Mark your calendar for WesFest Events!

WesFest is a wonderful opportunity for admitted students and their families to preview the Wesleyan experience online and to meet other incoming and current students. While we can't host you on campus yet, we look forward to answering your questions and engaging with you in this celebration of all things Wesleyan.

Parents are encouraged to attend any events not marked 'for students only'.  We suggest the following events:
