Places Students Visit

A key component of the WESL Institute Mission is to prepare students socially and culturally for future academic work as well as personal growth. WESL offers its students the opportunity to learn about American culture in the Midwest as it relates to the curriculum. That is, their participation in and out of class activities reinforces and provides a real-life experience supportive of what they learn in the classroom so they can develop social responsibility. 

Students typically participate in at least two field trips per semester. Areas of interest for cultural and social growth include the following cities, where most field trips take place:
