I heard that IWU was going to open a satellite campus in Chicago because there are so many students from the area. Is this true??
What you’ve heard is indeed true. President Wilson and the Board of Trustees have decided that opening a satellite campus near our most fertile recruiting ground only makes sense. With most other CCIW schools being located closer to our largest pool of prospective students, the powers that be have pursued and secured available land in the Chicago area to increase our presence in the area.
By 2015, students will have the option of attending Illinois Wesleyan-Bloomington or Illinois Wesleyan-Chicago. The Bloomington campus will continue to enroll about 2,000 students and will remain totally undergraduate, while the Chicago campus will be home to nearly 15,000 students—and several graduate programs.
This is certainly one of the most remarkable developments in our school’s history. All I can say is mark down this date—April 1st, 2010. What a day to be a Titan!
