Intensive English Language Institute Wichita Falls and Midwestern State University
Where Is The IELI Located?
The IELI is a part of Midwestern State University, which is located in Wichita Falls, Texas, in the north central part of the state. Wichita Falls is a city of approximately 110,000 people and home to Sheppard Air Force Base, which is a training base for NATO military personnel.
The area has many educational institutions, multi-national corporations, and a state leader in modern medical facilities. Wichita Falls hosts the largest bicycle race in the U.S. every August. Many cultural festivals and entertaining events are held throughout the year. Some of the activities include rodeos, theater, ballet, concerts, fairs, and sports. There is a semi-professional hockey team based in the city. Also, if you like to shop, in addition to a mall, there are many stores where you can find what you’re looking for.
The weather is hot and dry in the summer and mild in the winter. The average temperature in July is 97 degrees Fahrenheit, while the coolest average is in January at 52 degrees Fahrenheit. You will need lightweight clothes for summer, and a medium-weight coat for winter. The MSU buildings may be a different temperature than you are used to, so a light jacket or sweater is a good idea.
The MSU campus is situated in a quiet residential area and within walking distance of the mall, restaurants, and theaters. City bus service is available if you don’t have a car.
