On Campus Events
Each year we’re pleased to offer three fun, informative, in-person sessions which offer opportunities to discover IWU, ask questions, meet faculty, current students, take a campus tour and more!
Admitted Student Day
If you've been admitted into IWU's incoming class of 2023, this day has been designed just for you! Join us to learn more about the significant ways IWU will not only make your college experience "breakthrough," but also set you up for success after college. The program includes breakout sessions focused on Post-Graduate Planning, Study Abroad, Research, Student Life, and more, plus the opportunity to tour campus, and hear from current students, faculty and alumni about the distinctive characteristics of Illinois Wesleyan. For admitted students only.
Group Visit (Organizations Bringing Multiple Students)
Students must be in grades 9 - 12. 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:
- Groups are limited to 50 students
- 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.
Should you have any questions regarding a group tour to campus, please contact our visit coordinator at (309) 556-3031.
Out-of-state students who have applied to IWU and meet a certain academic threshold
may be eligible for up to $200 in reimbursements to help defray travel costs associated
with a visit to campus. For more details, and to find out if you qualify, contact your admissions counselor!
Overnight visits at IWU are generally reserved for high school seniors. If you are a high school senior who has been admitted to Illinois Wesleyan, and would like to schedule an overnight visit, please reach out to your admissions counselor or call (309) 556-3031.
