Information Session: Yes - Overall it was informative, although not the greatest info session I have sat through. It seemed I learned more from the questions people asked than from the woman and students at the front.
Campus Tour: Yes - Our tour was extremely long for such a small campus. I want to say it was almost 1 hour 30 minutes. The tour guide we had was WONDERFUL and was very helpful in answering specific questions.

Campus Visit Notes for Wesleyan University
I went after school and the timing of eating/tour/information session was horrible. Turns out, you cannot eat in the area around 11 am because most restaurants will open around 11:30. The tour we wished to attend was at 12 and right after that was the information session. We did not eat "lunch" until 4 pm. The tour is very long, so I'd recommend not doing the timings that my family did.
Anyway, our tour was one of three (rather large) tours in that 12 pm time slot. We actually didn't have a key to access a room in the freshman dorm, so the tour guide asked a female student that was walking back to her room. We ended up having her room as our model, and it was nice to see the mess that IS present in a college students room, and not the trussed up room most schools show you.
Dining/Restaurant Recommendations or Comments:
We went to the Forbidden City Bistro. We had immediate service because we were the only ones there because it was so late. Overall, it was pretty good, but not great. It's a Chinese restaurant
Other Comments (Transportation, local attractions, parking, etc.):
Parking is a pain! One should expect to park on the streets or in a farther lot than the one advertised for visitors.
