3 College Sophomore

Local Area: Convenience and Opportunity – Marion is a small town which used to be home to a RCA factory. However, with the advent of LCD and LED technologies, the town lost the income from that factory and enetered a state of decline. In the midst of this transition right now, Marion's level of service, restaraunts, and entertainment features is increasing. There are local stores within walking distance, and students often visit Matter Park in Marion as a way to get off campus and enjoy nature. For the most part, students go off campus to hang out with friends at Buffalo Wild Wings or to take part in community service. However, if you are looking to do other things, the possibilities are limited. However, all activites are within a reasonable distance and are on the rise in quantity.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Ft Wayne – There are several location for IWU, but focusing on FTW specifically, it's a great area with tons of options for pretty much any taste or budget.

4 College Junior

Technology: All the computers and other technology are up to date and runnning every smooth.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Dining Off Campus – There are many fast food and family restaurants within a 10 minute drive.

5 College Freshman

Campus Food: There are many options to choose from and the food is excellent.

4 College Student

Guys & Girls: Conserve It up – People have their different styles and interests, but there are not too many outliers that are ridiculous. The dress is usually conservative and causal.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Drugs at IWU? IWU is a Christian campus. The students have to sign a agreement that they will not do drugs or drink alcohol, because of this rule the ones that do break the rules do not pressure others into drinking or doing drugs. Just recently there was a big drug bust in a freshman boys dorm, but other than that you don't hear much about alcohol or drugs on campus.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: There is not much diversity when it comes to religion. Most of the students at IWU are Christians. While, this is not true for everyone most people do not say is they are of a different religion. With IWU being a Christian campus sexual orientation is different from person to person. Some accept it, while others do not. Other than those things everyone has a place and is accepted at IWU.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Baldwin or Wildcat – Baldwin offers terrible food. The only time the food is actually good there, is on visitation days and at Fatmeal. Fatmeal is breakfast that is served at 10:30 p.m on week days. Wildcat has many food options, from subs to chinese food. The choices at each food place though isn't much.

3 College Senior

Scholarships: IWU Aid – Indiana Wesleyan offers a great financial aid package. Considering they are a private school, they do a great job. I've received numerous endowment scholarships from generous alumni. However, the great financial packages is no substitute for searching and applying for scholarships on your own time. Take responsibility for your education and do the work of searching and applying for scholarships online.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: Indiana Wesleyan is a truly great school. No, we are not immune from our share of problems, but I would say we are on the up and up. More students are attending here and our finances as a university are doing well. Further, for students like me who depend on Financial Aid, Indiana Wesleyan offers a great financial package.

3 College Senior

Weather: The snow is perhaps the most difficult part about IWU. Last year, we had our first snow day in over ten years. It got so bad and icy that they FINALLY cancelled classes after a handful of students were injured and taken to the hospital. Other than that, the school does an alright job of making sure sidewalks are shoveled and kept clean and safe.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: On Campus – My campus is has a very welcoming atmosphere. There is never a time when I feel unsafe. The dorms are very nice. The campus is just the right size; you get exercise but you aren't running to your next class due to it being too far away.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: Baldwin and Wildcat – Although the food get's kind of old, it is over all great food. The staff that work in the kitchen are all very nice people. The atmosphere is great at my college.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: Marion, IN – Marion is a small city that has a lot of things to do. There are many restaurants on the main stretch and has many different places to get groceries or random odds and ends.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: Challenges of Getting Into My Major and the Most Important Criteria – To get into the business program you need to finish a certain number of credits and finish certain classes. Some challenges I encountered were finishing all my classes in time, but the most important criteria for admission is to meet with one of the business professors or other former business students.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There are many pros like the scenery of our campus is beautiful, the environment, everyone is friendly, and the staff is extremely friendly and will do anything to help you. The only con I can think of is Indiana Wesleyan has many rules and some people might not like it.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Cheap and Covenient Spots in Marion, Indiana – There aren't that many restuarants in Marion Indiana, but we get plenty of student discounts and we have cheap places that we can go to and hang out at. We have many good mexican resturants and ice cream places that a lot of the college students love to go to and hang out.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: I love Indiana Wesleyan, but there are a lot of rules. Signing up to go to IWU is a choice only "good" people should make. Just kidding, but there is freshman curfew, limited dancing, no drinking or smoking, etc., that could keep many from coming to IWU. However, as I'm underage anyway and I want to avoid all sorts of wildness, it's perfect.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Well, I live in the dorm with the "quite, studious" girls, though Shatford is there for crazy freshmen girls, Kem for those upperclassmen women who have their set of friends, and Evans for those that are louder and still like community. It's a little pricey, but the dorms are all actually really nice and new.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Oh Boy – Okay, let's be honest, the dining hall, Baldwin, isn't that bad, particularly on visit days or compared to other campuses. However, it can be a pain because of the open hours and the grouchiness of the student workers because of their conditions.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: Oh Yay – I'm switching my major from English to English Education as a result of going to the free Center of Life Calling and Leandership at IWU and am greatly looking forward to entering the education department. As it is, though, I've loved all of my professors in the English department. They are passionate about their field and immensely interested in developing relationships with their students.

4 College Sophomore

Technology: Life Saver – My laptop crashed soon after midterms, but I was unable to do much about it for a few weeks. In that time, the library became my second home. I love the availability of all the computer labs, yet the labs in the dorms are super outdated. Printing is nice because you get $5 of printer credits per semester which is easy to add on to as printing is 5 cents a page. The internet can be finicky, but is usually pretty decent.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Quite Comfrortable – Coming from a small town and heading to Indiana Wesleyan, I don't feel any less safe despite the warnings of some students. I've walked alone across campus at 1 in the morning and felt pretty safe, though Campus Police is available at any time to walk you anywhere you need to go which is a great assurance.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Financial aid process is tough. Contact financial aid staff very very frequently.
