Living on Campus

Living on campus is one of the primary benefits of the distinctive Wesleyan experience. You’ll meet new people, make lifelong friends, stay connected to campus activities, and immerse yourself in student life.

Life on Campus

If you don't find your niche in any of the clubs and organizations on campus, you can create your own! It is easy to do and is a great way to refine your leadership skills and make new friends who share your interests.

New Student Orientation

Orientation (required by all) will cover academic expectations, campus resources and how to get involved. In the midst of getting to know your roommate, the campus, and the community, you’ll have time to unpack and relax.

Prior Wesleyan Student

I chose Wesleyan because the school as a whole is committed to enhancing my skills and making me as well-rounded as possible. I like being part of a family. People here are truly dedicated to the students.

Opportunities to explore diversity and engage in inclusion at Wesleyan are as great as your willingness to get involved and expand your experiences.

Involvement outside the classroom is a significant part of your college experience.

You will be encouraged to reach your true potential as an active member of the Wesleyan community. You will have the chance to discover who are and how to develop your personal and professional passion.



International Relations students work on project at table together.

When The Princeton Review interviewed Wesleyan students, this is what they had to say:

“What ties our students together is academics, sisterhood, and honor code.”

“The sisterhood program is an amazing tool that helps those who need a support system. By being assigned a big sister, we have an easier way of adjusting and meeting new people.”

“There are sisterhood pep rallies every two months, which unite the school as a whole.”

“I’ve had an amazing four years here and I don’t want to leave.”

Welcome To Wesleyan

“Students at Wesleyan are from different places all over the world. The great international population leads to diverse religious, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds. They are different in terms of political views, religious affiliation, and sexual orientation. And they are opinionated."

Calendar of Events

Wesleyan College is privileged to steward many arts and cultural events and share them with the community. Most are free and open to the public. Wesleyan art galleries are open M-F 1-5PM and on Wesleyan Market Saturdays from 10AM-2PM.
