Marian University Indianapolis Reviews
Marian University has a great reputation for a good education that prepares a student for post-graduation and for those searching for second degree or masters/doctorate programs. They have numerous resources to support a student before, during, and after graduation. Their admissions counselors are supportive and informative. Professors, guidance counselors, tutors, career counselors, and internship coordinators all have a place during the student's college experience to help with post-graduation and support in career placement and career finding. The cost of the university overcompensates the resources. The price of the school is outrageous, unnecessary, and causes long-term debt and we do not receive any support regarding the cost of the university. You can definitely find other schools that provide educational support at a lower cost.
Marian University has an excellent academic curriculum. With the smaller class sizes, you get a greater opportunity for personal professor/student interactions. They provide all of the resources that students need to achieve their success, such as tutors and group studies. The campus is beautiful and located close to beautiful downtown Indianapolis, which offers a variety of employment opportunities, cultural events and restaurants. Marian University excels in academic excellence for their students, which provides the strong base for their students futures.
So far everyone at Marian University has been incredibly helpful during my enrollment process. From the very first day, my advisor was so helpful in walking me through every step of the process and making sure that I was fully informed. My financial aid advisor did an amazing job on directing me towards scholarships to help me get school paid for, which I couldn’t be more grateful for. They also have amazing values which is one of the reasons I really gravitated towards them. I have truly enjoyed the enrollment process and the fact that they are allowing me to get my degree fully online, outside of clinicals. This all brings me one step closer to becoming a nurse and one step closer to truly being able to help those in need.
