4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: This is a difficult question to answer, as my courses are online. But from what I understand the facilities are wonderful.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: This is a question I really can't answer, as my classes are online.

5 College Junior

Campus Quality: Unique Parts of IWU – One of the most unique part of IWU that I am most closely associated with is the Leadership program that is offered here. It is one of the most practical up and coming majors that anyone can take, and it transforms peoples lives. This major can easily be tacked onto any other major, or one can dive into it to its fullest for an opportunity to experience a major at its fullest. It also provides an abundance of practical opportunities that consist of real world experiences, practical learning, and travel/study abroad.

4 College Junior

Transportation: Simply, a majority of students on campus have vehicles or have friends with vehicles and tend to ride share. There are no easy options for other means of transportation, so people share cars, walk, or ride bikes. Indianapolis airport is close as well if people need to travel long distance and have no other rides traveling the same direction. We also make available to students a way in which anyone can hook up with people who may be traveling similar directions.

4 College Junior

Athletics: Sports Are Good for a Private Christian School – Athletes at Indiana Wesleyan University do very well in the sports that are offered, but because the schools is small fan support, and school spirit vary according to the particular sport. Most fan support come from general sports fans versus loyal fans. The school does offer fantastic athletic facilities, that allow athletes to perform their best and do quite well.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The process for adding scholarships at Indiana Wesleyan University to my account went very smoothly. The scholarships I was eligible for showed up on my account without application. I gave IWU a B+ because even though it went smoothly, the amount due for each year is approximately 30,000. Even with approximately 10-20,000 dollars in financial aid a year, it is very hard to pay the rest. I have taken out loans privately and through the government, and it is all piling up now.

Diversity: Indiana Wesleyan University welcomes diversity! Primarily, the white race makes up the bulk of this university. I gave them a C+ still, because the students and faculty make it a priority to change this. There are Diversity Coordinators on every unit of the residence halls, and there are many off campus groups who go out to different places in the community to serve and make relationships. This University is full of pride and love!

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: When you walk across Indiana Wesleyan University there is beautiful art, nature, and beautiful people. There is strong joy from the students and faculty; each with a God-given sense of purpose, pursuing their calling through educating or being educated.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Financial aid is the reason many people(including atheists) choose IWU. Ironically, financial problems are the reason that many students do not come back. Personally, IWU did not offer me much aid apart from an academic scholarship.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Who Really Knows? There are strict policy against drug usage. There are many students who will 'joke' about going out to get high or to smoke a cigarette, but who knows if they are being serious.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There Are Options – If you have the money to spare and a car to get around, there are plenty of restaurants within 5 minutes of iwu.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Use Online Courses – I cannot rate how the actual campus in Marian, IN is because I live in Indianapolis, IN and attend my classes online with IWU. I, however, have really enjoyed my online experience with IWU. The staff is very helpful, the classes are well laid out, and the tech support is great.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: Permit parking at Indiana Wesleyan is only ten dollars for an entire year, which is not bad at all. Fines are about twenty-five dollars. There is not much need for a car to get around campus (which is very compact) but it's always nice to have a car to get off campus for a Walmart run or for church. The availability of spaces for underclassmen could be better; there are always a lot of open spots in upperclassmen parking while the underclassmen lots are overfull, but all in all the situation is not terrible.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Fun, but Appropriate – To my knowledge, there is not a "nightlife" at Indiana Wesleyan in the sense that is implied here. At night here, people play games such as Mafia, flag football, volleyball, and do crazy but IWU appropriate things. A lot of pranks are played over the weekend. It may sound lame here in writing, but we all have a ton of fun in our "party" time. The only bad thing is that a lot of the campus shuts down on the weekend.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Not Many Guys – There are not many guys at Indiana Wesleyan, although those who are here are not bad looking overall. They are also great friends to have; they are real men of God. The girls here are amazing too; very well dressed and friendly. The overall style on campus for male and female students is preppy and trendy, but more modest than most schools.

5 College Senior

Local Area: Beautiful, small town environment enriched in the Christian philosophy enspired by the IWU campus.

5 College Junior

Campus Quality: The Social Scene – At IWU, our social scene seems to be a unique one. We have a student center with multiple hang out areas, and campus life is always going. Everyone loves to meet each other and grow in relationships.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I have yet to experience off-campus housing first-hand, but I have heard that it is much more affordable than living on campus.

5 College Junior

Campus Food: At Indiana Wesleyan University, we students are fortunate to have an excellent selection of well-prepared food.

Weather: Midwest Seasons – It's hot at the beginning of the year and fall is beautiful. Winter is the worst - it gets extremely windy, snowy, and cold! There also seems to be an incredibly gloomy period before the start of spring that makes students grumpy for sun.

2 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Indiana Wesleyan does not make it very easy to explore off-campus options. Most research and interest is usually pursued by the individual. I've heard the rent prices are low, but it is difficult not living in the area and planning for the next year. I have not considered the option of living off-campus - the surrounding neighborhoods are not ideal. The dorms and upper-class housing at IWU are excellent.

5 College Senior

Campus Quality: Everything Is New! All facilities are very new! The campus really looks great, especially when construction zones are finished.

3 Recent Alumnus

Academics: Good and Grief – The elementary education department is challenging. They use many real-life experiences to help us be ready for the teaching field. I have been going out in practicum experiences for the past three years and truly feel ready for whatever teaching may throw my way. I have teachers who care and many resources available to me if I should need them. However, the department can be very legalistic and demanding of their students. I receive very little encouragement from the head people in the department. Rather, that encouragement is replaced with threats and expectations. It helps me strive to be better.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Sports at IWU – Everyone really gets involved with sports at IWU. The fans are great and there are always awesome fan buses and rallies.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Dorm Life – I love the dorms at Indiana Wesleyan. There really are no bad options. All of the dorms are clean and spacious.
