Register in Handshake!

Illinois Wesleyan University has teamed up with colleges along I-74 (Augustana College, Knox College, Monmouth College, Bradley University, and Millikin University) to provide our students with a Virtual Fair - with more than 100 graduate programs (encompassing all majors)!
For Juniors and Seniors, you can ask the representatives about their admissions process to see what they look for in candidates (i.e. what kinds of internships, clubs, or experiences matter most), and what the day to day life of a graduate student at their school is like.
For First-Years and Sophomores, this can be a time to hear about what you could study down the road if you are interested in pursuing further education, and to see what types of activities you could focus on to be more competitive.
