Arrive on time, remain at your table throughout the fair, and never be the first college to leave the fair.
- Fill out a fair evaluation for the organizers if requested to do so.
Complete Wellesley's fair evaluation and return inquiry cards as soon as possible.
You will notice that Wellesley (like other highly selective institutions) does not distribute much in the way of admission brochures at college fairs. In fact, the only piece we now offer at fairs is the "Portable Wellesley" brochure. Instead, we ask that students fill out an “inquiry card” when they visit the Wellesley table. The College’s new admission communication plan has been carefully designed to provide relevant information to high school students at key points during the year. The plan allows Wellesley to eliminate the mailing of duplicate materials, reduce environmental and financial waste, and provide select information via mail and email when it is most applicable and least likely to be disregarded. Filling out the inquiry card is the only way to ensure that the student receives these critical updates from Wellesley.
