Wesleyan University is an elite liberal arts school located in Middletown, Connecticut about 2 hours from either New York or Boston. Downtown Main Street is just 3 blocks from campus with a surprisingly diverse assortment of restaurants for a small town. Life at Wesleyan revolves around the beautiful campus with Foss Hill being the place to be on sunny days.
Stay: The Inn at Middletown is the only hotel within walking distance to campus, located on Main Street in Middletown. The Marriott and Hampton Inn are a ten-minute drive, but not as “boutique” as the Inn.
One student’s tip: "Book in advance — I know Sophomores whose families already have their room reservations for graduation!" (Good advice especially if you are only visiting on a weekend)
Local Attractions: Miller’s Pond and Wadsworth Falls are both gorgeous nature retreats, just ten min drive from campus – students hang out and swim at Millers in the fall and spring and like to bring a book and hang out with friends on weekends. Stop by the Center for the Arts on campus, there is usually great exhibits!
