February 16th is Thank A Giver Day — a day when the Illinois Wesleyan campus community celebrates the generosity of our supporters. We celebrate Thank A Giver Day on February 16th because at this point we’re 70% of the way through the school year. Since tuition covers 70% of the total cost of an IWU education, it’s a fitting time to draw attention to the fact that outside support from alumni and friends of the University plays a key role in delivering the kind of educational experience we expect from our alma mater.

Last year, over 8,000 people made gifts to Illinois Wesleyan University and, regardless of the size, each and every one played a role in keeping Illinois Wesleyan strong. If you would like to take a moment to make your annual gift, we invite you to do so at

Go Titans!

Maria Gonzalez is the first-place winner in “The Illustrator Elite” Hand Drawn Competition. Her work is featured in the August 2013 edition of PRINT magazine, a premier design publication.

Gonzalez said, “As a college student, I interned at several advertising agencies in the creative department. This enhanced my love for design. I was fascinated by the idea of using design to tell a story.”
