WesFest, woo! WesFestivities start tomorrow—despite the ominous forecast—and campus is already swarming with prefrosh. Here’s the official calendar, including an Admissions-recognized(!) Ze-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named Day on Saturday:
Also, consider this a formal Wesleying welcome to all prefrosh! Here’s some prime advice from Sheek‘s ’09 WesFest post, because I can’t say it any better myself:
Prefrosh Wesfest attendees, keep in mind that while the official schedule has plenty of worthwhile/interesting events on it that you might want to attend (and should), some of your favorite parts of Wesfest will likely not be anything officially listed.
You should join large groups of fellow wandering prefrosh, break away with the new friends you make, talk to current students, and ask around to find things to do/places to go. This goes without saying, but you won’t get a feel for what Wes is really like from the itineraries the admissions office gives you.
If you still don’t have a host to stay with, you won’t be alone—bring a sleeping bag and spend a night or two anyway. Even if you don’t find a host once you arrive, you’re guaranteed some floor space in the various dorm lounges around campus, and the company of fellow prefrosh for impromptu slumber parties.
Oh, and keep in mind that Wesleyan does also entail taking classes and actually doing work. But that’s for another time—this is WesFest.
