wcla_college-fairsCollege Fairs

Each year, representatives from the WCLA participate in dozens of college fairs across the Los Angeles and Orange County area. 

Armed with information directly from the Office of Admissions, these volunteers provide local high school students with information about attending Wellesley and answer their questions. If you would like to represent Wellesley at an upcoming college fair, please contact admission@wellesley.edu


Wellesley College needs volunteers to talk to prospective students at the following events:

These events will start with a 90-minute presentation that includes each college rep showcasing his of her institution, followed by a general question and answer period.  The group presentation will be followed by a mini-college fair.  The alumni volunteer will help answer institution specific questions during the fair portion of the event and the volunteers will be asked to arrive about 30 minutes prior to the start of the program to help with registration and managing the crowd.
