Family and Friends 2020

Welcome to Wellesley! Typically, in October we celebrate Family & Friends Weekend when Wellesley students and their families enjoy the campus and all that Wellesley has to offer. In 2020, while we cannot gather in person, the Parent & Family Programs Office would like to bring a bit of Wellesley to you. On this website, you'll find Wellesley traditions, learn from professors, hear from campus partners, tour the campus in new ways, watch incredible musical performances, and see President Johnson present her State of the College address. Explore and enjoy virtually until we can gather together on campus again!
