More than 500 admitted Class of 2021 students and their family members attended WesFest activities on campus, April 12-14.

WesFest is a three-day celebration of all things Wesleyan. The Office of Admission invites all admitted students and their families to visit Wesleyan, experience university life first-hand, and explore the diverse opportunities that a Wesleyan education has to offer.

During WesFest, campus visitors attend classes and academic department open houses; tour campus and academic departments; meet and interact with Wesleyan students; attend a Student Activities Fair; enjoy an all-campus barbecue picnic and live student bands; learn about liberal arts career opportunities and Wesleyan athletic programs; attend student-to-student and parent-to-parent panels; and much more.

The new Wesleyan R.J. Julia Bookstore, located at 413 Main Street in Middletown, is under construction and is due to open in May. The bookstore will be operated by R.J.

Itkin’s Decorators occupied the building since 1939.

The bookstore’s café will be run by ‘grown,’ a USDA organic certified concept based in Miami, Fla. owned and operated by husband-and-wife team Shannon Allen (a Middletown native) and NBA champion Ray Allen.
