Campus Visit Notes for Illinois Wesleyan University
I have been on 3 visits to Illinois Wesleyan University. My first visit was in August of 2009, and my second visit was in January of 2011 for my audition into the music program.
By the time of this third visit, I had already decided I was going to come here. I had applied, been accepted, and sent in my deposit. We decided to visit one more time because my parents wanted to see what it looked like again, since we had spring break in March. They didn't remember it very well from August of 2009, and for my audition, I went on a plane by myself. On this third visit, we also ate lunch there, which is very good, and lots of choices. I'm a picky eater, and it works for me there! My admissions counselor ate lunch with us, partly because the admissions meeting for questions just turned into a long chat about random stuff and we had to extend the time to lunch to answer actual questions!-the admissions staff is very friendly and helpful!
I like it a lot here, and think I will be very happy there this fall! 14 weeks til orientation...
Hotel/Lodging Recommendations or Comments:
Nice hotels around there, and more cheaply priced than we would expect around where we live. We stayed at the Hawthorn Suites.
