ON MENTORSHIP “Because IWU is a small liberal arts institution it has allowed me to get close to many faculty members. When planning my summer, I was chosen for two different summer research programs (Freeman Asia and an REU program). I struggled with making a decision as to which opportunity was right for me. I remember talking to Dr. Schwend the day my decision was due. He talked with me for almost an hour helping me to understand where my real interests were and giving me the needed resources to pursue them.”

MY BREAKTHOUGH MOMENT

“At the beginning of my freshman year I struggled transitioning

However, being a part of the SEA PHAGES program and getting selected to attend and present at the SEA PHAGES National Symposium helped me to realize the enjoyment I got from research and proved to me that I could do it.”

moments have to begin somewhere.

There’s a culture here that moves and unites us —

a spirit of curiosity encapsulated in a key question:

What are you working on? Unlike many of our peer institutions, the opportunities for enhanced learning begin on day one at Illinois Wesleyan.

And then, this culture of curiosity leads you seamlessly

into your senior year and the chance to harvest the seeds you’ve

planted along the way — the things you’ve been curious about or fascinated by —

TO BUILD SOMETHING THAT IS YOUR VERY OWN.

WHAT ARE YOU WORKING ON?

BREAKTHROUGH

Research. Internships. Fellowships. Community projects. Global travel. Through regular, reflective faculty advising, IWU seniors are empowered to embark upon something unique to them, that integrates what they’ve learned — transforming it into something they can hold in their hands, point to, publish, or patent. These are the “breakthroughs” that make IWU students stand out, and employers and graduate schools sit up and take notice.

Imagine a first-year seminar course that takes dynamic classroom learning and blends it with faculty-led trips to museums, zoos, concerts, theatrical events, and more.

IWU’S FIRST-YEAR EXPERIENCES (FYEs) offer a wide range of experiences out in the real world, moving the theoretical into the practical, and building connections between you, your fellow students, and faculty… and a world of ideas.

THE VALUE OF MY IWU EDUCATION “Illinois Wesleyan gave me the skill set to become a best-selling author — to be able to think critically about the way I tell stories and the way I use history to contextualize the world. Not coincidentally, the personal involvement of faculty was crucial for me.”

MY BREAKTHROUGH MOMENT “I wasn’t sure whether I should pursue political science or history, and Dr. Michael Young gave me the advice: ‘Do both. And by the time your year at Oxford is over, you will know what you want to do.’ That was really great advice. And when I came back, I decided to drop my political science major and pursue history full-time.”

MY FAVORITE PARTS OF THE IWU EXPERIENCE “I loved the family environment at IWU. It made me feel very comfortable. I felt safe and the social life was great. It was perfect for me!”

WHAT I LIKED ABOUT ILLINOIS WESLEYAN “The people at Illinois Wesleyan helped raise me as a young man, as an athlete, as a leader, as a person and eventually as an educator and coach. I am forever grateful to this place because at IWU, I was a person.”

THE VALUE OF MY IWU EDUCATION “Life is about challenges. Illinois Wesleyan helped show me what I was capable of, how to be brave and step out of my comfort zone.”

HOW IWU SET ME UP FOR SUCCESS “My father passed away a month before I started college. I didn’t think we could afford IWU and I began looking at community colleges. I was excited about my history degree and playing basketball and just as I was about to call IWU to tell them I couldn’t come anymore, the Illinois Wesleyan Parent Fund contacted me and helped me. The community of IWU took me under their wing.”

insightful question

you’re in great company at Illinois Wesleyan.

For more than 170 years we have, through our celebrated liberal arts tradition, pushed students to see a larger picture, to savor context and grapple with nuance. To make connections between seemingly disparate disciplines. In essence, to think bigger. For IWU students, the secret dance of molecular particles, the exquisite beauty of an algebraic equation, or the science of a perfect sentence might resonate and inform their understanding of the world.

WE BELIEVE THAT WHEN STUDENTS THINK BIGGER, THEY STAND OUT IN THE WORKPLACE. At IWU, you’ll have the opportunities to marry the questions you’re passionate about to hands-on projects, faculty-guided research, and world travel to satisfy your curiosity — to both solidify your understanding of the world and differentiate you to prospective employers or graduate schools.

MY BREAKTHROUGH MOMENT “During the first two days of RA training, I felt like I had known my teammates forever. Each of us shared intimate stories about our lives and we bonded over those experiences and I finally felt that I was part of a community where I belonged and was understood.”

ON THE MUSIC DEPARTMENT ATIWU “To me, the School of Music is special because, although it has a classical focus/approach to music, there is still room to bring different approaches and perspectives to the table. My professors understand my passions and are committed to guiding me in discovering my unique form of creative expression, not forming me into a carbon-copy of a past figure.”

Why are Illinois Wesleyan graduates being admitted into medical schools and Ph.D. programs at significantly higher rates than the national average?

fundamental, underlying principles and mathematics, does precisely that — it gives our students the adaptability to lead as new technologies and new opportunities emerge. IWU physics students THRIVE in today’s post college world. And here’s why. Our physics professors take a vested interest in their students’ INDIVIDUAL GROWTH, our students spend MORE TIME IN THE LAB with access to state-of-the-art equipment, and just plain and simple, they HAVE MORE FUN!

Best of all, as an IWU student, you have choices. If you decide to pursue a career other than engineering, you can change your field without losing credit. This flexibility allows you the chance to chase your curiosity, explore your career options, and decide exactly how you want to break through.

While each of these disciplines require specific areas of specialized study, at the core of each is the ability to think critically, problem solve, and communicate effectively — the hallmarks of an IWU education. 19


HANDS–ON LEARNING

EVEN BEFORE GRADUATION Illinois Wesleyan’s breakthrough curriculum allows you to demonstrate what your experiences here have enabled you to accomplish, for yourself and for the world that awaits you. It is both an endpoint, marking the culmination of your IWU years, and a launch point from which you will build as you enter the workforce or attend graduate school. This approach to learning is a powerful way Illinois Wesleyan sets itself apart from similar institutions and prepares you to BREAK THROUGH in the world beyond college.

PICTURE YOURSELF

exploring something you’re curious about.

An idea, sparked by your classwork, so special that you can’t get it out of your head. And then, with close faculty guidance, embarking upon a project  — traditional research, a group project, a study abroad experience, or an internship — that sheds light on that idea. 20

Then ask yourself this:

What would it be worth to walk into your first post-graduation interview with something real to point to?

An actual “I made THIS happen” outcome?

Offering three degrees (B.M., B.M.E, B.A.) with an array of choices to major/minor/or concentrate in, at IWU the vast spectrum of musical possibilities is yours. Regardless of your major, if you’re interested in music, we’ve got a way for you to explore and express that interest. Want to play football and the oboe? Want to major in theatre and take voice lessons? Want to study political science and play in an ensemble? (We have a scholarship for that!) Here’s the bottom line: if making music is important to you, we’ll help you find a way to celebrate that passion.

“I love Illinois Wesleyan! It has proven to be the best choice for me, my education, and prospective career. I felt cared about by all of my professors, even in Gen Ed classes outside of my major.

BREAKING THROUGH TO

INCLUSIVITY

At Illinois Wesleyan we believe that the richest learning environments (both in and out of class) are fostered by diversity, equity, and social justice. Creating an inclusive campus climate requires more than hope and belief. It requires sustained commitment, by students, faculty, and staff. Reflecting on our role as educators during a critical national reckoning with racial injustice, IWU is recommitting to the values and mission we espouse: developing leaders and scholars for a global society who understand social justice with the support of a close knit, vibrant community.

TITAN PROFILE

“From the minute I first met Dareana, I knew that she was special. She is a sharp, passionate young woman with an infectious laugh who is keenly interested in politics and social justice. Witnessing the journey of students like Dareana during their four years at IWU is easily the best part of my job. I’ve loved seeing Dareana grow her knowledge base, her skill set, and her confidence during these past 4 years, and there is no doubt that I’ll be rooting for her and celebrating her achievements long after she graduates as well.”

and I couldn’t believe I spent one of my birthdays in Japan!”

“My breakthrough moment would be freshman. I helped coordinate a cultural event in which a group from Louisiana shared our New Orleans culture and experience. We managed to bring a Mardi Gras King Cake and decorations, and worked with the dinning staff to make some popular New Orleans cuisine. I think that was still one of the best ways I got involved on campus.”

UP NEXT “After I graduate, I plan to join the AmeriCorps Vista program. I would love to work either in Chicago or New Orleans. Afterwards, I hope to attend graduate school and pursue a master’s degree in a

There’s something special about an Illinois Wesleyan graduate. We hear it from top employers every single day. And here’s why: Every major and professional program at Illinois Wesleyan is grounded in a variety of academic subjects. What does this actually mean? Our nursing students might quote Shakespeare. Our pre-med majors might talk philosophy. And our music majors probably have a firm grasp on political science. That secondary focus is up to you, but in an ever-changing world,

IWU’s graduation rate is 82%** (20% above the national average) and 90% of IWU grads earn their degree in four years! When you factor in a possible 5th (or even 6th) year at a “less expensive” school, we’re a bargain. Plus, the sooner you graduate, the sooner you begin earning a salary.

And about that… Illinois Wesleyan graduates not only complete their degrees sooner, they make more money. The median first-year salary range for IWU graduates goes up to $61,400,+ which is a full $10,000 higher than the national average.++
