Welcome to Wellesley College! Orientation is your first step as you journey into college and find a sense of belonging at Wellesley. The New Student Orientation (NSO) program will have something for all of our new students, including first-year, transfer, Davis Scholar, and exchange students. The program includes social and educational events, small group conversations, and fun activities that will enrich your Wellesley experience and help you feel at home in our diverse community.

Beginning in late May/early June, you will receive regular communication from the Office of the First-Year Dean and the Orientation Team. We will send you all the information you need to know to onboard to Wellesley College, including information about the Entering Student Checklist.

We cannot wait to welcome you into this community! We will be updated our website regularly with information for incoming students, so be sure to come back regularly.
