You may not have spent much time in central Illinois, but now that you've found us, we think you'll find Illinois Wesleyan is a place you can call home. We invite you to come for a visit. There's an Amtrak station and the Central Illinois Regional Airport (CIRA) in town. We're closer than you think.
See when we will be in Michigan for a college fair or high school visit.

Why did you choose Illinois Wesleyan?
I chose IWU because I wanted to get out of Michigan and do something different. IWU was attractive because it is a small school with small class sizes.
Tell us about the financial aid process. Was it a factor in your decision?
Yes, I got an academic scholarship plus a little financial aid. The mixture of academic scholarship and financial aid was what I needed. IWU made it financially possible to attend and it was the same cost as the Michigan school I was considering.
Tell us about your Illinois Wesleyan experience.
The number one thing I love is the small classes. I'm in a class of eight students this semester. Having small classes helps in developing relationships with other students and professors.
