As most students realize by their second or third years at Illinois Wesleyan, this school is exactly what it claims to be: a small liberal arts school. The small student body facilitates intimate peer relationships but prevents social interaction on a large scale. The liberal arts approach to education is meant to introduce new ways for students to approach problems, as well as expose students to fields of study they may not otherwise experience. The gen-ed requirements can be burdensome for music and theater majors, or students with a double major, who already need to overload on classes.
For many students, IWU could be substituted with a more affordable institution. For business majors, there are more sensible options. The business and economics school at IWU is respectable but hardly worth the amount of tuition as compared to state schools. The atmosphere at IWU benefits from a mix of academics, down-to-earth students, and intelligent students with strong opinions. Conversations and colloquiums on campus are informed and debated, but pretension is popular. IWU is a respectable school on par with other small schools in Illinois, but it is not as academically intense as the University of Chicago or Washington University. Students who go to Illinois Wesleyan would like the powerhouse academics of U of Chicago or Wash U but appreciate a smaller community and more relaxed approach.
