What Students Are Saying

3.63 Average Rating
Keep that GPA high. If it isn't as high as you want it to be do things that will prove that you are a great student and person. Volunteer as much as you can this will show the admission counselors that you are a good person and that you are Lewis material.
Yulie from Glendale Heights , IL
APPLY EARLY for an earlier review for a higher chance for a scholarship because the amount of money distributed is limited. Take any interview offeres to try to get more money. FILL OUT THE FASFA. Unlike my family, you most likely will get more money. Take advantage of the overnight visits. It helped me decide to go to Lewis. It will show you what people do on campus, and you can see if you will like it.
Beca from Chicago, IL
Have an open mind about everything. Many things offered are things you may not have ever thought about before. Go in positive, get a feel for the school, and try your hardest.
Jessica from New Lenox, IL
Try applying as early as possible so you can get a scholarship from the school.
Carolina from Romeoville, IL
When it comes to choosing a school there is a lot to think about. Firstly, if you want a small class size or big class size. Lewis University is a very small class size and is more personal and feels more home-like. When I was choosing colleges, this is what definitely helped me narrow my decision down because I did not want to go to a school were i was going to be taught by a projector or with a class size of over 100 students. I love that they care so much if your present or not. I cannot stress enough how well these instructors do their job. I love Lewis University so when doing college visits, Lewis should be on your list .

Make sure you get a well constructed plan of graduation before starting your freshmen year.
Jason from Bolingbrook, IL
It will be cheaper to commute from Lewis University because you can either use your vehicle or use the pace bus that stops right in front of Lewis University. Also, their is a lot of walking from different buildings so I suggest a parking permit from Lewis.
James from Willowbrook, IL
Keep your grades up all four years of high school, including your senior year. Just because you were accepted into the school before you graduate doesn't mean they can't/won't drop you for falling grades. The better the grades, and ACT, the better the scholarships.
