NEW PARENT ESSENTIALS

As a parent of a new Wesleyan student, we welcome you to the Wesleyan community! You and your student will begin to hear more often from Wesleyan throughout the summer. In the meantime, should you need any assistance please contact us at parents@wesleyan.edu.

Summer Sendoffs

Summer Sendoffs

Join new students and their families for a casual summer social as they prepare to head to campus. This is an opportunity to meet others new to Wesleyan, as well as current students and their families, alumni, and friends of Wesleyan. The Summer Sendoff web site will be updated on a rolling basis throughout the late spring and summer. More details will be emailed in June and throughout the summer to parents, students, and alumni.
Orientation
