Experience IWU: Parent Orientation

Parent Orientation Logo

Experience IWU is the Office of Orientation Services's premier program for the parents and guardians of the incoming class of Illinois Wesleyan University students. Each June an average of over 400 parents and guardians attend to learn more about their students' upcoming transition to college. IWU faculty, staff, and orientation leaders welcome these parents and guardians to the IWU family with a day filled with meeting new people, keynote and educational sessions and getting a chance to experience Illinois Wesleyan first hand.


The Pre-Registration deadline is Friday, June 14, 2019.  Experience IWU 2019 will be held on Saturday, June 22, 2019. 


If you are unable to attend or would like to review the materials and presentations from Experience IWU 2018, check out our Parent Resources and the Experience IWU Handouts sections.


We look forward to you joining us on campus!  If you have questions that are not addressed in our Frequently Asked Questions, please Contact Us for more information.
