I love every single thing about Marian! The people are so helpful and kind. The professors are helpful and very knowledgeable. The area of Fondy is incredible and Lake Winnebago is beautiful! I would not have chosen any other school to spend four years of my life! I think the area and the people combined make the school top-notch in itself. Once you add the stellar athletics to the mix, it just pulls everything together and makes Marian above and beyond. Overall, Marian is a wonderful school that allows so many opportunities to their students on campus, in the classroom, and out in the world.

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!
What I enjoy most about Marian University is the community. Due to it being a smaller private college, this allows us to know everyone by name. You're not just another number to a professor. Having advisors, professors and other faculty at Marian that care and want the best for you is very motivating. I also really enjoy the smaller class sizes. This helps me personally with asking questions and being more engaged in the class and with my peers. Marian is a very nice college campus and with the faculty and students that go here make it a great college experience.
