If you've been admitted into IWU's incoming class of 2020, this day has been designed just for you.

In an effort to keep our guests, students, faculty, staff and community as safe as possible, Illinois Wesleyan is adhering to CDC and state guidelines around preventing the spread of the Coronavirus. All visitors MUST wear a face mask and practice social distancing of at least 6 feet while on campus. Thank you!  Schedule your individual visit now!

Group On-Campus Visits:  We regret that we are unable to schedule group visits to campus at this time due to COVID-19. We look forward to hosting group tours when it is safe to do so.
