Illinois Wesleyan
Virtual Admitted Student Day
your breakthrough moment awaits

Greg KingHello and welcome! We're so glad you're here!

This series of videos was created specifically for you, our admitted students and your families. We hope you'll glean much of the information you would have received during our in-person Admitted Student Day had circumstances been different. More than anything, we hope they help you decide that IWU is the place you want to be.

If questions arise, jot them down. And then don't hesitate to reach out! We welcome them! You can email or text your admissions counselor or even the Dean of Admissions, Greg King ( 

In the meantime, please stay safe and well.
