Something for everyone…

…whether you’re looking to connect and make new friends, work out at the Shirk Recreation Center, cheer on our Titans, take in a concert or play, join a club or Greek organization, or explore our two great college towns, there’s plenty to do on and off campus.

Student Opportunities

Illinois Wesleyan students are encouraged to find and pursue their passions, engage in meaningful ways on and off campus, think outside the box, travel the world and more.

“It’s a big town with lots to do and with friendly people! Going on runs on Constitution Trail, you always get a nod and wave from another runner. Or even walking to class from off-campus houses, people say ‘hi’ and ‘good morning.’”

What Happens After Class?

What happens after class is important to you and to us. Here’s just a sampling of what campus life is like.



Student organizations, including Greek Life, intramural sports, student government and media, volunteer activities, cultural, spiritual and arts groups, and more.

Arts at Illinois Wesleyan

From pottery to finger painting, from chamber music to cover-song competitions, students express themselves creatively.
