Junior Open Campus

Junior Open Campus

Junior Open Campus: Hey! Come on over! We're talking about the inscrutable, maze-like world of college admissions. It would be even more fun if you were here.

For high school juniors, Saturday, April 29, 2017, from 8 am - 3:30 pm 

Registration is now closed, but you can still join us!

Plan to arrive at Alumnae Hall Ballroom on Saturday, April 29, between 8:00 and 8:40 a.m. to register on site. You may bring up to two guests. Please wear comfortable shoes, and guests should plan to bring a reusable water bottle as our events are all zero waste. (High school juniors will be given a reusable bottle as a gift.) Also, our paperless program schedule runs on a free app so be sure to bring your smart phone or tablet, and be sure that it is fully charged.

Park in the Davis Parking Garage, marked as Visitor Parking (not Admission Parking) on campus signs. Then exit the garage and walk across the driveway toward Alumnae Hall, the building with the glassed-in arches. The Ballroom is on the lowest level of Alumnae Hall.

If you require any special accommodations for your visit including an accessible tour route, vision or hearing accommodations, or food allergy/dietary restrictions, please email admission@wellesley.edu at least one business day in advance of your arrival. Note that we already provide vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free dining options for this program.

We look forward to seeing you on Saturday!
