New Student Orientation

Welcome to Wesleyan! New students at Wesleyan must plan to attend our orientation sessions for new students. Orientation is a VERY important part of your start at Wesleyan.

AARDVARK for New Students Enrolling Fall 2016:
What’s AARDVARK? AARDVARK stands for Academic Advising and Registration Day, Virtual and Real Kind. AARDVARK is a day for you to meet with a College adviser and get registered for your Fall classes at Wesleyan. In addition to getting registered, concurrent sessions will run through the day in regards to Financial Aid, Student Affairs and Academic Life at Wesleyan.

How do I register for AARDVARK?
All deposited students will have received an email about filling out the Advising Questionnaire, where you will RSVP either ‘yes’ or ‘no’ for AARDVARK 2016.
