Academia, Culture and Campus Life: What to Expect at Wes

Academia, Culture and Campus Life: What to Expect at Wes opens July 1st for the class of 2025!

Welcome Wesleyan Class of 2025 international students! Based on the suggestions of current and past international students, we created an online course for you to explore Wesleyan before you arrive. Academia, Culture, and Campus Life combines the voices of faculty, staff, and students to tell you about what to expect on campus, in the classroom, and beyond. This year we’re offering the course on Coursera (free to all Wesleyan students).  Here are instructions on how to enroll:
