Marian is a wonderful university to attend. The professors are not lying when they say that they will go above and beyond to help students, they really do! The professors and the rest of the staff are very kind and very helpful. Marian offers many opportunities for students like study abroad, clubs and organizations and so much more! The small campus is perfect and you pretty much get to know everyone! The professors know your name, and it feels like home there! I love it!

I attended Marian University for 2 years. I absolutely love the campus, and the new sandwich shop "Sammie's." There are plenty of clubs and organizations to join, or you can create your own. The housing is nice, especially the duplexes and cedar creek apartments. Class sizes are small, which makes it easy to connect with the professor and establish a good teacher-student relationship. Most professors have consistent office hours so you can meet with them outside of class time. The nursing classes are off campus, on Main Street. There are many opportunities for tutoring on campus, but I would like to see more options for the nursing students.
What I like about Marian University is that it offers a very personalized learning environment. The class sizes are small(between 10-25 people) which gives students the ability to personally interact with their professors. I have personally benefited from this and I feel like Marian would be a great fit for most students. The faculty is great at Marian. Every professor that I have had is committed to helping myself and fellow classmates succeed. The campus of Marian University is small, making it easy to get from class to class.
