The staff are so friendly and eager to help out anyway they can! When I first thought about going back, I had a lot of questions before I wanted to make a choice about where to go. The staff were quick to answer all my questions, and if they couldn't, they provided contact info for someone who could. Even after school started, staff would periodically reach out to make sure that I was doing ok with everything.

What I liked most about Marian University is how friendly everyone there is. There is always someone around to help you when help is needed. No one is rude towards you when you have a question about something. I also really enjoy the small campus feel, very easy to make friends and get to meet others with similar interests.
When thinking about something I would like to see change in, it would have to be the amount of activities and events that take place on campus. A lot of times the campus is quiet and not much goes on there. I would like if there was more games going on outside or more involvement with all the students and staff to help interact with people you might not have interacted with before.
When I got accepted, I was so excited to go to Marian University. I was a Social work major and absolutely loved their program, but the school is seriously lacking. I was paying 36,000 dollars a year and I had two roommates.. (Housing was 10,000 dollars), Marian's dorms are not worth the price at all. When I found myself unable to afford my education, I was treated as if I didn't deserve to be at Marian anymore. I was in my first semester of my Freshman year, scared of the idea of college, and essentially told "we don't care about you, pay us or leave". I made the Dean's list, yet Marian refused to offer me any scholarship beyond what I was offered to begin with. I think this year, they bit off more than they could chew and didn't want to admit it.
