6 Things To Do In Galesburg

  1. Visit Seminary Street, a lovely, compact, independent shopping district three blocks away.
  2. Eat your way through Galesburg. Try a crepe from Landmark Cafe or a pizza from Baked.
  3. Get a sense of our history—we're more than just the site of the Lincoln-Douglas Debate—by exploring the exhibits in Alumni Hall and Old Main.
  4. Walk the trails, take a paddleboat ride, or just kick back on the beach at Lake Storey, a ten-minute drive from campus.
  5. Drink coffee. Visit Innkeeper's and try their artisan roasted blends (made in house!).
  6. Ask a few questions of the people you meet. We like to talk.
