4 College Junior

Majors: Student Teaching – Most students I know get more in class teaching experience before student theaching than other schools. And the majority of students have not problem getting jobs after graduation.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Up Keep – Some are not in good shape and are not realitivly knew. Some off campus areas are not always safe.

4 College Junior

Campus Quality: Almost all of the buildings are new and up to date, or soon to be updated. Everything is cleaning and well taken care of.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: It is improving. But mostly fastfood and chains. With maybe 2 upper end eateries.

4 College Junior

Technology: Internet, especialy wireless needs to be ungraded. Reception in most living areas in sktechy. Either net cables work, but can be frustrating.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Life Changing, but Seriously – My time at Indiana Wesleyan U. was not something I wanted to begin. I wanted to attend a handful of other schools, least of all IWU. However, God steered me in this direction for a time in the lives of those I met to make a great impact all around. I've grown more in the last year than I feel I have in the last decade of my life, though I'm sure eight year old me would not agree. Many of my friends say they stepped on campus and KNEW they were supposed to be at IWU. It's great. Get involved, meet your new best friends, and thrive- wherever you go.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: It's not really bad unless you're not used to the weather. It snows, it rains, the sun shines just like anywhere else with actual season changes :).

2 College Student

Diversity: Even with IWU being a christian school everyone knows that not every student there came because of that reason. We have students that are'nt religious at all there, or maybe even different religions.

4 College Student

Academics: Special Study Options – Indiana Wesleyan has many of the normal majors that all colleges offer, but it also stands aside from most colleges because of the special majors because it is a christian college. They give students the opportunity to major in things like leadership, ministry, and singing.

4 College Student

Campus Quality: All Buildings – Indiana Wesleyan has just built a brand new campus. Everything was just built less than ten years ago. They have more than enough space for the athletic events happening at the schools. They also have special places set aside for specifically athletes. The students center and cafe are both plentiful in size and looks.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: GREENWOOD CAMPUS AREA – it's important to note that I attend IWU in Greenwood, IN. The restaurants in the area are great, there's somethng for everyone in every budget. And there's some variety also! And if you just want to grab a quick snack, you've even got Walmart around the corner.

3 Recent Alumnus

Drug Safety: Nonexistent Drug Scene – The drug scene at school is practically nonexistent. If the students are using drugs it is hidden well enough that students who are not looking for it will not even know it is there.

5 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: Athletic Facilities – The facilities here are great. The equipment is state of the art exercise equipment and there's plenty of gym area for whatever sport you wish to play.

2 Recent Alumnus

Technology: There are few computer labs, but most students have a computer of their own that they can use. Definitely need to purchase a personal computer for this campus.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The Unseen on Campus – The highlights on life on campus is pretty sane, however it is what lays underneath that is being overlooked. Its may seem safe all around on campus, and we are reminded that yes there are campus police on duty and are there when needed. The location where Indiana Wesleyan University is located is in Marion, and within the city like many other cities are crimes and violence going around. But is really going on within the campus grounds? Sometimes we all hide secrets. Many students here do drugs and drink. Or how about when roommates get into fist fights with others that the RA or staff members are not around to see. There are thefts and pranks done, and sometimes these events go unsolved to who did them. These are just a few things that many people either overlook and ignore.

5 College Freshman

Majors: I Will Never Regret Social Work – Although I am not finished with my program, I have never been so happy with a choice in my life. I know that this program was for me and I believe that I will go far. My goal in life is to work as a counselor in a school or in a church. I feel called to this position to help younger students overcome their problems. I have learned many valuable aspects already and have been able to apply them to my daily life. It has helped me to not only understand myself, but understand others around me and how to interact with them.

Parking: At Indiana Wesleyan University, there is a wide variety of parking areas. Almost every building has their own designated parking areas. The upperclassmen have the upper hand when it comes to parking and able to obtain the best spots, closest to the dorms. This is beneficial to the upperclassmen, however when it comes to the underclassmen, there is a great distance. Being younger you are required to park quite a ways a away, which makes it very difficult and inconvenient.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Health and Safety – The campus at Indiana Wesleyan University is very safe. The campus police are actual police officers from the city of Marion. It is great to know that we are not having random people who volunteer but actual police officers who are trained to protect us. They patrol the campus often and it is hard not to find one around. They are their to help in any situation. There is a campus police number where they can be reached in a matter of a second. They attend your call immediately and help you with something as simple as being locked out of the building to escorting you back if you are walking in the dark so that you're safe.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: Marion, Indiana – The local atmosphere of Marion, Indiana is one of hometown sentiment and accessibility. With everything (stores, restaurants, maintenance shops, etc) in close proximity of one another and the campus, students are surrounded with everything they need throughout the school year. The citizens of the area are middle to low class and are often a joy to behold. Overall, the atmosphere is very positive.

4 College Freshman

Majors: I have never had one, but I have heard good things from people who have.

1 College Freshman

Party Scene: Indiana Wesleyan University is a Chirstian campus, so partying, drinking, and clubbing are not allowed while attending.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on Campus – Living on campus here is great. It can be pretty costly though, with room and board. The atmosphere is very welcoming. The housing process was easy there are many dorms to choose from and they are all pretty great. For freshman, I would try to stay away from Shatford house if your a girl. There can be lots of drama and the rooms and very small. The best dorm for freshman would be North or South Hall. The walk is much further, but the dorms are very new and nice.

5 College Freshman

Campus Quality: I Feel Safe – This school makes me feel safe. There aren't drunk people on campus at night. There is also a great nursing program, so I know that there is probably a nursing within the area in case I fall in the winter.

1 College Freshman

Administration: Punishments Are Severe – The school doesn't tolerate drug or alcohol use at all. Students caught with these substances are given a letter home or punishment from the law depending on the age of the student and then after the second time, they are no longer allowed to attend the University.

2 College Freshman

Party Scene: Freshman Are Trapped – Freshman have a curfew at Indiana Wesleyan, so they are excluded from the freedom that most students experience in college. Students can sign out for a night or weekend, but in general, there are no parties on campus. Having to sign in prevents freshmen from hanging out with older students or limits how late their friends stay out.
