3 College Sophomore

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.

3 College Junior

Administration: As Strict as Expected – I think that the school is as strict as a private Christian university would be expected to be. It could be a lot worse. They are forgiving if you admit your offenses and are willing to change. It would be nice to have a little more freedom with the curfew and with having people of the opposite gender in dorm rooms.

Campus Quality: Staff Truly Cares About Students – If you are a student at IWU, you are not just another notch in the wood. I am constantly amazed by how much the staff at IWU truly cares about each student and perspective student!

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Much Better Then Most Universities – Perspective IWU students always rant and rave about the amazing food, but as with any dining hall, it loses it's luster after awhile. Don't get me wrong, IWU's dining hall is exceptional (especially compared to other schools), but my suggestion is to have "family dinners" every other week to mix it up. My friends and I love cooking our meals in the dorm kitchen every so often.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: Parking is good by most of the dorms, but there isn't much by the student center for parents and other visitors to use. I like the fact that every grade can have a car on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Really Safe – I feel totally safe on IWU's campus! The campus police do an excellent job. I can run around campus and the surrounding streets and feel just fine.

2 College Sophomore

Diversity: When speaking of diversity at Indiana Wesleyan, many students just being to chuckle. The campus has an extremely high percentage of white students. Diversity is one of the areas that the school definitely needs to work on, although they have been reaching out to many perspective students that would help with this problem.
