Submit your event/s. Note that we limit event listings mainly to free or inexpensive public events in Wellesley, such as talks, films, theatre productions, concerts, etc. This is not a place for businesses to promote themselves, their classes, etc. Please don’t submit events that run for weeks and weeks. We approve event listings before they go live, typically within 24 hours.
No business sales, trunk shows, etc. (those would be paid advertisements). Please go easy on the ALL CAPS, exclamation points!!!!, etc.
We also appreciate any contributions to support our independent journalism venture.
Thanks, Deborah & Bob

MassBay to host College Application Celebration – GEAR UP Event
October 30, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
MassBay Community College is hosting a Massachusetts College Application Celebration (MCAC) GEAR UP event, on Wednesday, October 30, 2019 from 10am – 1pm on the Wellesley Hills campus. GEAR UP stands for Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs and is a nation-wide initiative to encourage more young people to have high expectations, stay in school, study hard, and take the right courses to go to college. Guests attending MassBay’s event will have the opportunity to work with admission counselors to submit applications to any college, including being accepted on-the-spot to MassBay.
The goal of this event is to give every graduating senior the opportunity to complete at least one application by the conclusion of the celebration. Some students find the application process daunting or simply procrastinate on getting started, sometimes resulting in the student missing application deadlines. This event is specifically designed to provide the guidance and support students need to complete a college application.
