3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: No Car? Problems. Many IWU students have cars and are able to go off campus to find restaurants in the area. So far, I've been off campus to a few fast food restaurants, buffets, and local hot spots. There is talk of getting better deals as a student, but we shall see. Ivanhoes in Upland (about 20 minutes away) has over a hundred ice-cream sundae/milkshake options!

4 College Senior

Campus Food: Several kinds of resturants all around from fast food to sit down

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: The facilities at Indiana Wesleyan University's adult program are accessible and close.

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: Sports Are OK – Sports here are decent. The basketball team is very good, but the others struggle to compete it seems like.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Campus Life – Although the campus life is unbelievably nice inside and out. The campus is just a smaller environment. I hate the meal choices though. They food definitely needs an upgrade!

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Top Notch Christian University – There are very few safety or health issues at Indiana Wesleyan University. The university empliys a number of full-time, armed law enforcement officers for a campus of only three thousand. The few issues I have seen have been resolved quickly and competently. As for health, a school known for its nursing program is not likely to be unheathly. The health department provides basic on-campus care, and there are frequent shot clinic opportunities given in the student center during flu season.

Campus Food: Good Balance of Speed and Quality – Baldiwn dining facilities at IWU have been recognized on multiple occasions for their skill in providing great food services. They have multiple eating environments within their small hall, and they tend to listen to student's pleas for greater selection, etc. If you need somethign quick, it is possible to stop by Wildcat and get Chinese, mexican, sub sandwhiches, salads,Pizza,hamburgers, or Chick-fil-A in a few minutes. In addition to these options, meal plans often include points, which can be spent at Wildcat, the college store, our soothie location, or the McConn coffe company.

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.
