  • I am a current student here

    I have met some amazing people here that I know I will have in my life even after we graduate. There are so many opportunites to get involved in clubs, sports, Greek life, musical ensembles etc. IWU campus life makes it easy to meet new people and experience new things. The weekends are never boring, even if that means just hanging in a friend's dorm and watching a movie.

    I have made a ton of friends, and it is a fantastic place with lots of opportunites to hang out and meet people. The entertainment and movies they bring in are fantastic and there are a lot of great university sponsored events that happen year round. The music building is especially close, it is like one giant family and there are always people around and everyone, including the professors, care about you.
