Discover Western Open Houses give you an opportunity to ask questions and meet University faculty and staff.

Upcoming Discover Western Dates

Discover Western open houses allow you to tour the campus, meet with academic and student services staff, talk with current WIU students and more – a great way for you to experience campus life and picture yourself at WIU.

There are several upcoming Discover Western dates for you to choose from. You can make a free online reservation now by clicking on a date below.

Upcoming Discover Western dates for 2014–2015 are added throughout the year. Check back often or call us toll-free at 877/PICK WIU with any questions. You can also schedule an individual visit online if no Discover Western dates fit your schedule.


Upcoming Experience Western Dates

Experience Western is an opportunity for accepted students to come to campus for an overnight visit and experience college from a current student’s perspective. High school seniors who are accepted to Western for the fall will have the opportunity to spend the night in a residence hall, engage in campus life, and attend classes with a current student “buddy”! You will truly be a Leatherneck for a Day as you experience all the different aspects of campus, from eating in the dining centers, experiencing a floor meeting, and attending Monday classes.

There are two Experience Western dates for you to consider. You can make a free online reservation now by clicking on the link below. Registration for the first event closes on Monday, January 6 and on Monday, March 3 for the second event. We will send you a confirmation and waiver form that needs to be completed by you and parents/guardians and returned to the Admissions Office at least two weeks before the Experience Western date to reserve your spot! While you will need to arrange your own transportation, we will provide transportation to campus from the Amtrak station or parking permits for a campus parking lot.

Should you have any questions or need to change your registration please call us toll-free at 877/PICK WIU (742-5948) or email admissions@wiu.edu.
