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!
I have loved the community at Marian University, and how I have been able to form a fairly close-knit group of colleagues. I love the small size of the campus, and all of the greenspace in the middle of campus. I really like how the President of the University is often seen around campus conversing with students, biking, or running - just living with the student population. I also love the three chapels that are accessible on campus. With this being said, I do wish there was a more Catholic atmosphere on campus. Although Marian is a Catholic university, I had envisioned.
