About Jacksonville

When you come to Illinois College you'll not only be a part of the campus community, you'll be a part of a city that blends time-honored traditions and historical treasures with vibrant and stimulating arts and culture. Jacksonville is a place where you will feel safe, where you will hang-out with friends at a local restaurant and where you will recognize people as you walk along the sidewalk. It's a place where you are as likely to see your professor at the grocery store as you are in the IC cafeteria. This makes Jacksonville a wonderful community in which to live and learn.
Jacksonville has a population of 25,000 people, more than 50 restaurants, two movie theaters, four shopping centers, eight parks and two lakes. And on those occasions where you want to go bigger - St. Louis is 90 miles to the south, Chicago is 250 miles to the northeast and the capital city of Springfield is a short 30 miles to the east. All just an easy drive away.
