Welcome Weekend

Welcome Weekend is an annual event for new students held the weekend before classes begin in the fall. Participation in Welcome Weekend is the next step in your journey to becoming a Bulldog. Welcome Weekend 2019 is August 16-18. Required events will take place between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. each day. Lunch and dinner are provided at no extra cost to all Welcome Weekend students.


Welcome Weekend is full of fun activities and important sessions designed to ensure you are fully prepared for the year ahead. These include a scavenger hunt that will make you a pro at identifying resources, a required first-year assessment test (no studying needed) and an outdoor movie on campus. You will also receive a convocation credit for the Honor Code ceremony.


Please make the arrangements you need to so you can spend the weekend with your classmates getting to know all about Wesleyan.
