Now that I have completed two full years of schooling there, I could not be more happy with the school I chose to attend. I have not had a professor that I did not like, nor one that I have heard a student talk poorly of. The campus is small and has a very close, family/community feel. Marian offers many extra curricular activities like clubs and intramural sports, and if there is a club that you are interested in that does not already exist, it is pretty easy to start one. We have multiple athletic teams to bring home a national championship like our women's basketball team, our football team, numerous track and field members, as well as our cycling team, and some of the individual cyclists. This past year we welcomed in our largest freshman class yet, and they are currently a few construction projects underway for a new PE center, a new cafeteria, and the Byrum School of Business. I am very happy with my experience so far at Marian University.
Review Marian University - Indiana
I Absolutely love Marian. All of the staff are wonderful and friendly. They have plenty of areas for students to eat. All the students are awesome. Until I came to Marian I had never seen so many people who hold the door for one another. All of my professors are caring and fair, you can tell they love their students and job. Marian is a bit pricey but the education is above average, not much parking since they are doing some remodeling but I guess that's the least of our worries.
A new freshman to college can be very frightening and that indeed it was for me. I have always been extremely social in High School and when I got to college it seemed like everything changed. I was afraid to communicate with others and I was very overwhelmed. The staff at Marian made me feel so welcomed and as if everyone was a family. I have never been away from my family so this was very helpful. My classes were smaller, which was nice because it allowed me to have more one on one time with my professor for additional help and questions. Marian is an exceptional school with great staff and professors and compassion for their students.
