There's no better way to experience what makes Illinois Wesleyan University unique than to come for a visit; and a variety of ways to do it!

Individual Visits (Individual Students and Families)

Even if one of our group preview days doesn't fit into your schedule, don't worry! We'd love to set up an individual visit for you. A typical visit to campus lasts approximately two hours and includes speaking with an admissions counselor and touring the campus. 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.

Group Visit (Organizations Bringing Multiple Students)

We love sharing Illinois Wesleyan with groups of students. To ensure a positive experience for all, we ask that all small groups adhere to the following guidelines:

  • One chaperone must be present for every 10 students attending a campus visit 
  • A chaperone must accompany every group of students going out on a tour
  • Requests should come from schools or other academic programs

Although we will do our best, we may be unable to accommodate your group during peak visit times in October, March, or April.
