These majors are contained within our six academic Colleges: Applied Science and Technology, Arts and Sciences, Business, Education, Fine Arts, and Mennonite College of Nursing. We think of ourselves as a large institution with a small school atmosphere. In other words, students who remark about their undergraduate or graduate experiences on our campus generally say that the campus has a very "small" feel to it. This is a true testament to the faculty and staff at Illinois State University who work with our students on a daily basis.
