FIND & PURSUE your passions


What’s Your Passion? Whatever it is, we’ll help you pursue it. At Illinois Wesleyan, we know you are more likely to succeed in college and life if you are doing something you truly love. That’s why we are committed to helping you discover and pursue your passions, both inside and outside the classroom. Students who do so are more likely to perform better academically, graduate on time, and, most importantly, find a career they love. So, what’s your passion?

Wesleyan is a highly-selective undergraduate liberal arts university, nationally recognized for a curriculum that combines the liberal arts and sciences with well-respected business, pre-professional and professional programs. We pride ourselves on the individual attention our students receive, the academic choices and out-of-class opportunities we provide and the success our students have after graduation. Outside of the classroom, we offer a vibrant campus life

Discovering and pursuing your passions

90%+ of graduates

More than 90% of our graduates are employed full time or pursuing graduate or professional education within six months.

An Illinois Wesleyan education helps you learn to think and study broadly, which is essential for long-term success in a rapidly changing global society. Recent research confirms that graduates from top liberal arts schools typically have better college experiences, higher employment rates and placements into medical and law schools and other graduate programs, as well as more long-term success in life than graduates of other schools. For over 160 years, an Illinois Wesleyan education has focused on serving undergraduate students and delivering on our motto of Scientia et Sapientia — ​ knowledge and wisdom. That means at Wesleyan we want you to get more from your education than facts and figures. We want you to learn how to think critically and creatively, so you can apply that knowledge to succeed in all aspects of your life.

 Critical thinking is key to problem-solving. It comprises a skill set that grows from the student’s mastery of literacy. By teaching closely, face-to-face, our goal is to help students to become the best and most proactive thinkers and leaders, and that is ultimately in the interest of making civilization better.”

Winning on and off the field

The Illinois Wesleyan Titans have a long winning tradition, both on and off the athletic field. More than 400 Wesleyan students take part in our intercollegiate athletics, competing on 22 varsity teams — 11 men’s and 11 women’s.

18 |

Titan teams have won six NCAA Division III national championships, including men’s and women’s basketball, baseball and indoor and outdoor track. In addition, the Titans have had 31 NCAA top-10 team finishes and hold 127 College Conference of Illinois Championships. Men’s and women’s lacrosse teams will take the field beginning in the spring of 2014 for the men’s team and the following spring for the women’s. The Titan lacrosse teams will compete in the Midwest Lacrosse Conference and Midwest Women’s Lacrosse Conference, which are made up of 11 NCAA Division III colleges and universities from Illinois, Missouri, Ohio and Wisconsin. While NCAA conference championships are important, Illinois Wesleyan is most proud that it ranks 12th among all schools in NCAA divisions for Academic All-Americans with 115. This places us in the company of such elite institutions as Notre Dame, Stanford and MIT. The Titan athletic facilities are second to none and include the Tucci football stadium, with its new synthetic turf; Shirk Center Arena and indoor track; Jack Horenberger Baseball Field; Titan softball field; Neis Soccer Field; and Beadles-Morse Tennis Courts. Titan men’s and women’s golf teams practice and play at three top local facilities — Prairie Vista Golf Club, Ironwood Golf Club and The Den at Fox Creek, an Arnold Palmer Signature Course.
