Sons & Daughters is set for November 24-25, 2013

A special thank you to the 225 Sons & Daughters 2012 program particpants! We welcomed an enthuiastic group on a beautiful sunny late fall day. Our two-day program was attended by wonderful alumni, Wesleyan parents, faculty and staff along with an energetic group of high school juniors. We hope participants enjoyed attending as much as we enjoyed reconnecting and meeting attendees. If you have any feedback please be in touch with Dana Coffin at or 860-685-3756.

Wesleyan's annual Sons & Daughters Program is a two-day program (Sunday-Monday), traditionally held in November at Wesleyan University. Co-sponsored by the Offices of Alumni & Parent Relations and Admission, this event offers an opportunity for secondary school juniors to prepare for the selective college admission process.

Highlights of the program for students include viewing campus life through the experiences of Wesleyan students, learning interview techniques, participating in a mock admission committee, attending classes, and much more. Parents will have the opportunity to talk with college administrators about the admission process, financial aid, and campus life.

This program is not intended to showcase Wesleyan University to prospective applicants, but to provide valuable insights and information about the college admission process as you begin your college search.

We believe that this program will help prepare both students and parents to make informed decisions throughout the college search and application process. We hope that time and resources will permit you to participate in the Sons & Daughters Program and look forward to seeing you!

Please see the 2012 Sons & Daughters Schedule for a preview of the events you can look forward to!
