Welcome, Class of 2021!

Orientation is your first taste of the community you will cultivate as a college student at Wellesley!

The New Student Orientation is designed to help you, as a new student, begin your transition into college and to find a sense of belonging at Wellesley. The program has something for all of our new students, including first years, transfers, Davis Scholars, and international students. Our program events, conversations, and activities will help you enrich your Wellesley experience and feel at home in our diverse community.

Specific programs are designed to:

  • Introduce you to the Wellesley College community, our history and shared values, and our rich tradition as a residential women’s college;
  • Provide opportunities for you to meet members of the college community, develop friendships, and establish personal connections with faculty and others in the extended Wellesley family;
  • Familiarize you with the campus and its resources, including academic advising and support services; 
  • Prepare you to become actively engaged in this community of lifelong learners, as you embark on your liberal arts education.

We will update this page regularly over the summer as Orientation plans develop, so please check back frequently.  We will also post information on Facebook, so be sure to "like us" there!
