MARION – Indiana’s 29 private, nonprofit colleges are offering special visits to students and their families as part of Indiana Private College Week.

During Private College Week, Indiana Wesleyan is happy to welcome any interested students to visit campus! Visit opportunities are offered Monday through Friday, beginning at 10:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. Custom visits standardly include opportunities to connect with an admissions counselor, tour IWU’s beautiful campus, and eat lunch in Baldwin Dining Hall, with the option to request additional appointments.

On Monday, July 25th, we are hosting a General Visit Day—an all-day visit event that provides an excellent overview of what IWU has to offer, including opportunities to connect with faculty and campus administrators. Other visit opportunities will be offered throughout the school year, including all-day visit events such as General Visit Days and Spotlight Visit Days, which connect students with faculty and current students from their academic programs of interest.

“We want all students and families to discover that an Indiana private college education is within reach in terms of affordability,” says Dykstra. “In addition to federal and state grants, including the 21st Century Scholarship, ICI colleges and universities provide millions of scholarship dollars to students, making a top-flight college degree a dream come true for tens of thousands of students. In addition, the ICI GradFacts tool offers prospective students valuable information demonstrating the return on investment of a college education.”

“Students and their families can make the best decision about where to attend by seeing the dorms and classrooms, meeting with faculty and staff, and seeing themselves thriving on campus,” says Kurt Dykstra, president, and CEO of Independent Colleges of Indiana.

Additionally, aspiring private college students have access to a new search tool with accurate employment and salary statistics, key information about the long-term value of their prospective undergraduate degrees. Conducted in partnership between ICI and U.S. Census Bureau, the data can be found online at
