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!

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.
