“Professors at Western are friendly and engaging. They truly understand how nontraditional the student body is and give their all to make the students feel comfortable. They care about the lives of students outside of the classroom.”

William Fabyan - Graduate Student, Applied Statistics and Decision Analytics



WIU students have the opportunity for hands-on experiences throughout the Quad Cities, from small businesses to Fortune 500 companies, like John Deere. The Center for Career Preparation and Employer Engagement helps connect students to organizations for internships, projects, and careers.
