The best way to learn about any school is through a campus visit. To set up your campus visit, call the Admissions Office at 1-800-332-2498 or sign up on-line.
A typical visit to campus lasts approximately two hours and includes speaking individually with an admissions counselor and touring the facilities. At Illinois Wesleyan University, great emphasis is placed on individual attention. Our counselors personalize conversations with prospective students based on their unique interests and questions, much in the same way our faculty and staff actively engage with our current students.
During the school year, seniors and transfer candidates may also sit in on classes and meet with faculty, and student-athletes may meet with coaches.
This weekend event is a program for prospective students to experience life as an Illinois Wesleyan student! Each weekend is unique and will showcase an on-campus student activity. Activity options this year include an IWU Titans men’s basketball game, School of Theatre Arts play, performance by comedian Sammy Obeid and concert by Ball in the House, soul/R&B a cappella group. Each weekend may also include the opportunity to visit classes, meet with professors, enjoy campus food options and stay overnight with a current student host.
There is no cost to attend. Students must be admitted to IWU. Eligibility is determined by available space in the program.
Students who are admitted to Illinois Wesleyan University are all invited to participate in our Scholars Day program. Offered on Saturdays during the spring, Scholars Day represents a unique opportunity for these students to learn more about the many ways in which IWU will enhance their educational experience. During this event, students and their parents/guardians will hear from alumni, faculty and current students about the distinctive characteristics of Illinois Wesleyan.
