Information Sessions and More

Looking to learn more about Wesleyan? We offer several in-person and virtual opportunities for you to discover what makes Wes unique and connect with our community. Check out an information session hosted by an admission dean and a current student. Join a student-led, students-only Real Talk event with a current senior. Make plans to immerse yourself in the energy of campus at one of our Fall Open Houses. We might even host an event with alumni in your city! Whether you prefer one-on-one sessions or group events, in-person interaction or online connection, we have you covered.

Should you need accommodations for your visit to Wesleyan, please reach out to Jordan Kessel, Assistant Director of Admission Events.  We can accommodate most needs 48 hours prior to your visit, but require 2 weeks notice to secure a sign language interpreter.

  • Information Sessions with Admission Deans

    Information sessions are hosted by a Wesleyan admission dean and a current student who will provide a candid inside look at the Wesleyan community both academically and socially, as well as offer information about admission and financial aid.

    In-person information sessions are held Monday–Friday at 10:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. During the Fall, information sessions are also held on Saturday mornings at 11:00 a.m.

  • Real Talk @ Wes

    Real Talks are led by a dynamic pair of Admission Senior Interns (SIs), current seniors who will share their Wesleyan experience in and out of the classroom. These sessions are casual, student-only, Q&A style with no set agenda or formal presentation. Come join our SIs for an enjoyable conversation!
     
    In-person Real Talks are held Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 12:00 to 12:45 p.m. and Sundays from 1:30 to 2:15 p.m. They are an excellent standalone opportunity, but also serve as a complement to either an information session or tour.
     
    Virtual Real Talks are held Sundays at 7:00 p.m.

  • WesChats

    WesChats are online and are a wonderful way for high school seniors to explore Wesleyan and learn more about academics and student life in a relaxed, individual conversation with a current student.

    WesChats are informal, 30-minute video calls with one of our student workers who will share some of their experiences at Wesleyan and answer your questions. These students can speak directly to your interests and describe campus culture and intellectual life. It is a terrific way to get a broad sense of student and residential life, academics, advising, research, faculty relationships, and the city of Middletown.

    No evaluation or record of the conversation is part of the admission application.
