Illinois Wesleyan University Reviews
I love IWU. The campus is stunning year-round, the food is consistently delicious, and my classes are incredible! My professors are very knowledgeable about the topics they teach, and they try to make class fun. Generally, they make themselves readily available to meet with students for any reason. The Ames Library is a great resource too, and the research librarians are more than happy to help you find anything you need for a class, a paper, or just general reading material. It's also easy to get involved on campus: there are RSOs for just about any interest, so it's easy to find people with common interests.
I really love the campus and the classes. The only drawbacks I have encountered are with course scheduling. Since Illinois Wesleyan is a small private school, sometimes classes are not available both semesters. For the most part, I have loved my experience!
Beautiful campus, and everyone on campus was so friendly on our visit! They have a top-notch nursing program and are very reputable.
