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.

I am currently attending Indiana Wesleyan University's adult on-line learning program to pursue my Bachelors degree in Digital Marketing, Branding and Advertising. I began in April after a long process of getting my Associates degree from Ivy Tech. After I finally completed my Associates degree. So far it is amazing. The on-line campus is well organized and most of all the instructors are professional, very helpful and respectful. I love IWU!
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.
