About Illinois Wesleyan

Illinois Wesleyan is a nationally recognized, exclusively undergraduate, independent, private university. We enroll approximately 1,600 students at our vibrant residential campus in Bloomington, Illinois. 


The advice I would give to someone who is trying to decide between IWU and another institution is to think about what’s important to you and how you envision your college experience going. At IWU, you will be supported and encouraged, you will have so many opportunities because of the close relationships you can form with the community. You get to write your story and plan your path with people who care about you rooting you all the way.

At first, I was apprehensive about applying because I didn't know how feasible it was financially, but the scholarships I received form Illinois Wesleyan helped make attending a reality!
