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.

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.

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.

4 College Sophomore

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.

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.
