Guidebook

Guidebook is a mobile app and online interface that offers up-to-date information about the dates, times, locations, descriptions of events and more. Guidebook is the primary method of sharing information, schedules, updates, and resources about Wellesley's New Student Orientation.  

Guidebook puts the Orientation schedule in the palm of your hand since it is easy to use on a smartphone or tablet.  But you can use it just as well on any computer with internet connectivity.

You will receive the basic Orientation schedule on paper when you arrive on campus, but Guidebook will have the most current information as well as important interactive features not available elsewhere.
