What Students Are Saying

3.90 Average Rating
classes are difficult, but that does not have to be a bad thing. that means that you were chosen out of thousands because the school believes that you are up for the challenge. professors are more than wiling to help you. some have even met with students over the weekend!
guadalupe from chicago, il
The expectations of the students are pretty high but the professors are always willing to work one on one with students to ensure success.
Tess from LA Grange, IL
Material covered in each course and expectations are very clear and appropriate based on the level. Even a 100 level course will quickly teach students to be organized and responsible. Although classes are rigorous, they are doable if students keep up with the material and study, a lot. By the end of freshman year students' research skills drastically improve.
Zitlalic from West Chicago, IL
The required gateway is definitely a hit or miss, because some are really easy, and others require more time and effort. Unfortunately, they change every year so there is no way to be forewarned.
Alexandra from Mahomet, IL
Illinois Wesleyan's reputation as a good school is not baseless; students are expected to put in the effort necessary to excel in school, which can be difficult but is ultimately very rewarding.
Dominique from Mount Prospect, IL
IWU had courses that some of my other options didn't.
