Online registration for Wesleyan’s Homecoming/Family Weekend is available through October 5, 2012. We encourage everyone to register in advance as it helps us better plan for your time on campus and allows us to place our catering orders more accurately. If you missed the deadline, you may register onsite during the weekend; however, an onsite surcharge may be applied to your registration fee.
Traditional Wesleyan T-shirts available only to those who register by October 5
Whether you are cheering on the Cardinals vs. Amherst College on our athletic fields, soaking up knowledge in one of our acclaimed WESeminars, or heading home after a great weekend in Middletown, wear your Red and Black with pride! Purchase your shirt when you register for the weekend by October 5. Shirts will be available for pickup when you arrive on campus and check in at the Usdan University Center.
Several Homecoming/Family Weekend events will be webcast live (“WEScast”), and made available on iTunes U or as streaming video after the weekend. If you can’t make it to campus, please join us online! The WEScast listing of events for the weekend will be available in mid-September. For instructions on how to view them during or after Homecoming/Family Weekend, visit the WEScast home page.
WESeminars provide opportunities to revisit the classroom and experience firsthand the academic excellence that is the essence of Wesleyan, with presentations by scholars, pundits, and other experts in their fields. Programs run approximately 60 minutes, followed by audience Q&A. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis, and because of the state fire code, the University is unable to offer standing room space on the floors or aisles of venues. 1831 WESEMINAR means a lot of great information packed into a short time--perhaps not 18 minutes, 31 seconds exactly-- but close! Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis unless otherwise noted.

Music and Public Life
A year-long campus and community-wide exploration. Today, the private and public worlds of music often overlap and intersect in virtual networks, community musicking, and public policy. During the 2012–2013 academic year, Wesleyan will celebrate and study the sounds, words, and spirit of music in public at the local, national, and transnational levels through concerts, workshops, gatherings, and courses, all designed to cross disciplines and engage the campus and Greater Middletown communities.
Navaratri, one of India’s major festival celebrations, is a time to see family and friends, enjoy music and dance and seek blessings for new endeavors. Wesleyan’s 36th annual Navaratri Festival celebrates traditional music and dance.
