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!
First Look Previews
Take a campus tour, learn valuable financial aid information, glimpse some of the
120+ extracurricular activities available to our students, and more! Designed especially
for students and families who are just getting to know IWU, this is a fantastic overview
of the IWU experience.
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.
