Indiana Wesleyan University Reviews
Indiana Wesleyan University is a great school! It is super safe and you feel at home. Lots of activities and gets you involved in the community. The teachers also invest a lot in you. They have good relationships with the students. There are a lot of clubs and groups you can join and it is fun to pick and choose new ones. School spirit is really big at iwu, we love to support and cheer are teams. I think the one thing that helps the university grow is the amount a faith it has, which is a big plus. How we pray for each other and deeply care about the hard things. Iwu is a great big family!
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!
