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 2021 is August 13-15. Required events will take place each day, please check the schedule below for specific times. Meals are provided at no extra cost to all Welcome Weekend students, including commuters. We will have an area just for commuters to relax during the weekend as well.


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.
