Overall Rating

IWU was a great college experience! As a freshman student, I was able to make friends quickly, join a sorority, and get great grades. The campus is small and you recognize nearly everyone! Throughout my 4 year experience, I travelled to Italy and Austria, performed in numerous concerts, and gained many other academic experiences!
