Communicating with Friends and Family

It is important to stay connected with friends and family members at home and to stay in communication with your new friends in Middletown. As a student, you can use Wesleyan’s Wi-Fi for free. 

Video Calling

Before you leave for Wesleyan, try experimenting with different apps and make sure you and your friends and family know how to use them. It is a good idea to start using the same equipment and platforms that you will both will be using later, to become familiar with their features. Some examples of video calling platforms include FaceTime, WhatsApp, Skype, Zoom, Facebook and Google Hangouts. Once you arrive on campus, sit in different rooms and experiment to see which work and which you like best.
