Admitted Students Of Color* (SOC) PROGRAM

Congratulations on your admission to Wesleyan University!

With everyone's safety as our top priority, including current and newly admitted students and their families, Wesleyan has decided to reimagine our traditional WesFest admitted student program. We are not planning to host any on-campus events for admitted students this spring.

Instead, we are crafting virtual campus experiences, including webinars, online panels, and information sessions. We hope to deliver the same core experience that our on-campus program strives to provide: a first-hand look at life on campus, opportunities in and out of the classroom, and, of course, an opportunity for all of you to pose any outstanding questions you have about Wesleyan.

Stay tuned for additional updates pertaining to this newly reimagined WesFest experience!

  • "I wanted to thank you again for being so welcoming and accommodating for me and all other admitted students this week. I really appreciate the fact that Wesleyan encourages and supports students visiting campus. You made it so easy to come and visit which has not been the case for other schools I've been admitted to, so I am very appreciative. Especially considering my crazy flight time this morning!

  • The student of color program really amazed me and made me realize the supportive and inclusive vibe at Wesleyan. Your attention to admitted students of color really means a lot for me, as I'm sure it does for a lot of the students of color at Wesleyan."  -Grace, Participant
