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.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: The cost of tuition is very pricey. I pprobably should of checked out other programs. I do like the environment. The teachers give too much homework for an adult class.

4 College Senior

Diversity: Indiana Wesleyan has diversity in their college. We have different races and cultures. Religion is very important at Indiana Wesleyan, devotions and prayer of every class.

4 College Senior

Campus Quality: Indiana Wesleyan University at Kokomo has a family feel. Classes are small. Teachers have one on one time with students

3 Recent Alumnus

Local Area: Not Much to Do – the small city of Marion, IN doesn't offer a whole lot, but there are opportunities for getting involved in volunteer work in the community. I didn't attend for the town but for the college, and there was plenty for me to get involved with on campus. Plus, every now and then I visited the local library and hung out at Steak n' Shake with friends.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Professors Who Care – I come to college without a lot of study and homework experience. I was your typical high school know-it-all. At college i was lost. I had no idea what i was doing, when it was do, or how to study for college exams. I was failing miserably in one class inperticular. I had failed all the exams taken and was at the end of my rope. My professor told me that he was aware of my struggle and wanted me to retake the last test but in a different format. I aced the retake test. He told me that he had seen my struggles but knew that i was trying so he felt that he had to do whatever it took to get me on the right path. Most professors at Indiana Wesleyan University will do the same. In fact i'm sure all would. The professors here are caring, they want to make sure your able to understand the material, their main goal is to help you learn and that's what they do. They help us learn.

4 College Freshman

Majors: Photography Major – I absolutely love the program here and I would choose Indiana Wesleyan again.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: School spirit is awesome here. Everyone has such school spirit. For homecoming everyone can be in a parade around Marion. The sports teams do very well.

4 College Student

Transportation: There really isnt a need for driving anywhere on campus. everything is within walking distance. the call building are by each other and the dorms are by each other.

3 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: Out to Eat. Off campus dinning is alright, there is alot of fast food places. There are places like fazoli's,mcdonalds,subway,etc. There aren't too many places to sitting down and eat. Mostly all there is,is Ihop,Bob Evans,and applebees. My favorite place is subway it is always easy,quick access.

4 College Student

Health & Safety: Campus Police – I really feel like the campus security is very awesome. They go out of there was to help people. they are willing to escort you to and from the study hall, be there if you lock yourself out of your car, and even if you need someone to go to lunch with. i love how i can walk through the campu and know that i am safe because these guys are always out making sure it is a safe enviroment. i am very appreciated to have these men and women as our security.
