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.

Marian university has many good simulation experiences available for nursing students. They have cadavers and other helpful tools to use. The food there is extremely horrible. None of the fruit is ripe, the lettuce is dry, the choices aren't very abundant. Other than the food, the campus is usually pretty clean and organized. The professors are amazing. Very friendly, down-to-earth and helpful. The only other thing I would have to add would be that the timeliness and organization of the university are very poor. Everything seems like it is last minute and that is very stressful.
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.
