Most Helpful Review for Illinois Wesleyan University

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.

    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.

    This liberal arts education offers many group projects throughout all classes. The community is small enough to gain very strong relationships, and expansive enough to attain a sizable network. The culture of learning helps promote the overall college experience.
