Tours, Info Sessions & Chats

 

Due to the Covid-19 outbreak, Wesleyan's campus is closed to the public.  For the health and safety of our students, faculty, and staff, please do not visit campus.  All in-person admission related activities/events are cancelled until further notice.  Below, you can learn about the many different virtual options we are offering at this time.

WESCHATS/INTERVIEWS

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

WesChats are not formal admission interviews, but rather 30 minute video calls with one of our Senior Interviewers who will share some of their own experiences at Wesleyan and answer your questions. These students can both speak directly to your interests and describe campus culture and intellectual life. It’s a great way to get a broad sense of student and residential life, academics, advising, research, faculty relationships, the City of Middletown and more.

No evaluation or record of the conversation is part of the admission application, and doing a WesChat neither precludes nor necessitates an evaluative interview later in the process.  Sign up here.

Interviews will be available starting October 1 - stay tuned for information on how to sign up.

ZOOM DROP-IN HOURS WITH A DEAN OF ADMISSION

Every weekday a Dean of Admission is available to answer your questions from 9:00am-12:00pm and 2:00-4:00pm EDT.  Hope you can join us for a chat soon!

You can also pop in for a one-on-one chat with the Admission Dean from your area!  Find your Admission Dean, learn more about them and join their Zoom chat here.

TEXT AN ADMISSION DEAN

You can send questions via text or WhatsApp to one of our admission deans! You can find each dean’s mobile number for texting here. To connect with us via WhatsApp, message us at +1.860.685.3578.

  • VIRTUAL TRANSPORTATION ASSISTANCE "FLY IN" PROGRAM

    Due to the impact of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Wesleyan is unable to host our annual fall fly-in program on campus.

    As a result, the Office of Admission will host two weekend-long virtual programs which will take place on September 26 - 27 and October 10 - 11. Both weekends will feature identical programming so that students can attend the session that best suits their schedule. Participants will have the opportunity to connect with Wesleyan’s diverse community and discover the impact of Wesleyan’s distinctive educational experience.

    This program is free of charge and open to high school seniors from traditionally underrepresented groups in higher education such as Black/African-American, Hispanic/Latinx American, Native American, and Asian-American, in addition to first-generation college students and/or those from families with limited financial resources.
