    Pros

    Good to see if you like teaching math.
    Can be relevant experience if you want to be a teacher or go to graduate school.

    Cons

    IWU isn't as selective as it used to be. Some kids will be too lazy in Calc so you'll have to fail them (please don't let them slip by).
    There is always one kid who doesn't know say, FOILing or something.

    Also IWU doesn't have tons of name recognition when you graduate. Which SUCKS. It makes me wonder if I should've gone to U of I.

    How bad\good TAing is varys greatly on the professor you work under and what class you are teaching. An intermediately hard class is best. The HW is super hard to grade, but not everyone takes it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please stop destroying the academic prestige of IWU. Almost every Alumni who is likely to donate is upset about this. We already have a really bad alumni donor rate.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Illinois Wesleyan.

    Interview Details

    It was simple. All we had to do was email an application. I did not need to interview because my boss was also my professor and I had the highest grade in the class. I am not sure if other people had a face to face interview or not. The application questions were easy though.

The Fightin' Titans of Illinois Wesleyan University cannot be accused of having a one-track mind. The small private university offers 50 majors and programs and is organized into three colleges: liberal arts, fine arts, and the school of nursing. As an undergraduate university, Illinois Wesleyan, which has about 2,100 students enrolled, also offers pre-engineering, pre-law, and pre-medical professional programs. Traditionally, about 85% of the student population is enrolled in the College of Liberal Arts. The school was founded in 1850 by civic an Methodist Church leaders.
