Indiana Wesleyan University Reviews

I had an excellent experience at this university during my three and a half years there. I had numerous opportunities to explore my passions and excel in my academics. I was employed in several on-campus positions including Residence Life and had wonderful opportunities in the Psychology department. I did find that some restrictions were a bit drastic compared to the way I was raised and there are some aspects of the campus culture that I could have done without; however, my overall experience was made amazing by my participation in the John Wesley Honors College! I would recommend this university to any student looking to pursue excellence and who doesn't mind a slightly conservative environment.

My time at Indiana Wesleyan University so far has been such a blessing. I have grown so much spiritually and have been pushed academically. The environment is fun and exciting. Everyone seems so nice and outgoing, making friendships doesn't seem to hard to do. Love all the different events our campus holds. Their is something for everyone! I love the smaller classroom settings. I have wonderful professors that are pretty helpful and seem understanding. The food options are awesome as well. Our campus is so beautiful I highly recommend this college.
Excellent school! The staff is very well qualified, the online programs are well written, the scheduling is good, and the cost is reasonable in comparison to other 4 year schools.

I'm enrolled in an online program. The way things work with that is a group of students called a "cohort" begins taking a sequence of classes in pursuit of a certain degree. The classes are three credit hours, and a semester's worth of material is compacted down into either five or six weeks depending on the amount of material covered. Only one course is taken at a time. This has the benefit of allowing a student to focus on one learning area at a time.

The instructors and the advisors have been very helpful and supportive. I have been to the main campus in Marion, Indiana, which is impressive to say the least. If it were not two hours away from where I live, I might continue on for my Master's on campus there.
