Marian University boasts many quality attributes. Among them are a diverse mix of students, some from abroad, some local, some live on campus, many others commute. The vibrant city of Indianapolis and suburbs create an excellent atmosphere for an outlet away from campus studies. However the campus is compact and beautiful and easy to get around, complete with all amenities and resources needed for a quality college education. Classes are small, which allows the professors to interact more easily one-on-one with their students.

Love the atmosphere! Love my professors! Love the area of where its located! I can't say enough good things about it. I think if you live close you should tour because it is the hidden gem of Indiana schools. Profs are great and super helpful. There are tons of resources on campus. It is a small school so you get all the attention you could ever need. We have access to a fabulous DO medical school if you are interested in research. We just built a new business school and just got a beautiful donation for the education college. Marian is a great place. We are so close to Indy it is great but we are also close to speedway and other surrounding cities so it is easy to commute if you need. Marian is just a great place.
Marian has everything students need! It’s a small campus, but it makes a big impact. It’s got small class sizes. The professors want to help their students succeed. Marian works with partners around Indy to offer students hands-on work experience, which is a total plus!
