The starting points for classes are well tailored to your high school work. I was placed onto the Analysis track based on my AP scores, but the new information I was acquiring was similar to my sociology class. I have never taken sociology before, but in both cases I learned an incredible amount of information.

    It is very small, not much to do outside of the classroom. Very few people are ever on the quad. Surrounding area is small and depressed.

    Illinois Wesleyan is a fantastic academic program. Socially, it is somewhat cliquey; you're either an athlete, a biology major, or a theater major. Overall, I am so happy I made my decision to attend here.

    It is a university that will continue making me think outside of my box, even if it is such a small campus. This school has so much potential to bring out every kind of leader in our world. I know I will be a leader when I graduate.

    The pearl of the Bloomington-Normal community. My first and only choice; a home away from home. A genuine life experience full of self discovery, opportunities to develop leadership skills, and a rigorous course schedule to keep you on your toes, with a campus community comparable to your own family; a true college experience that I wouldn't have any other way.
