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.

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

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!

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.

5 College Sophomore

Technology: Apple Campus – Indiana Wesleyan is an apple campus, meaning that the majority of computers on the campus are Apples. Computer labs are extremely high quality!

Local Area: Many Service Opportunities – Many students choose a university based on the town that the university is located. Indiana Wesleyan is based in Marion, Indiana, which is a town that offers many service opportunities. Marion is home to many low income families. While many students would see this as a negative, I see this as a positive. Because of the struggling families in this town, students at Indiana Wesleyan University are given many opportunities to serve their neighbors with the love of Christ. (And for anyone looking for some awesome ice cream--Ivanhoe's is a MUST!)

3 College Senior

Weather: It is northwest Indiana. All extremes are seen here and class is only cancelled when an emergency exists.

4 College Senior

Party Scene: Since IWU is not a "live on" campus, the night life for most of the students are the classes themselves.

3 College Senior

Guys & Girls: Social Setting at IWU – THE majority of onsite students are older than traditional colleges. Most have full time jobs and familys that IWU keeps in mind when developing courses. All aspects of the economic scale are represented here.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Friendly and Relaxing Atmosphere – Fellow students are genuinely interested in making friends and helping those in need. There are few cliques; easy to make friends via one-on-one relationships or small groups. This is what I like most about IWU and biggest reason I would choose IWU again.

Transportation: To be honest I'm not even sure that our town or school offers public transportation. Our college is located in a small town and there is not much around it that students would even be interested in traveling to.

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: Lack of Sports – Sports and Indiana Wesleyan are not very big yet it seems like a lot of the student body is involved. Soccer is definitely the major sport at our school and has the biggest fan support. We do not have a football team and our baseball team isn't very good. Our basketball team is very good but if you came from a big high school games aren't very exciting because there aren't very big crowds that gather at the games.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: Rich White Kids – Indiana Wesleyan University is a private college that has principles and values based off of Christianity so there is not much if any religious diversity. It is also mostly populated by white students so in the community we are stereotyped as the "rich white kids" when in reality most students struggle financially to attend the university.

3 Recent Alumnus

Administration: The stictness at IWU is very high. All students must submit to a behavior contract and a standard of living.

2 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: The off campus housing at Indiana Wesleyan University is poor. They prefer their students to live on campus. If students want to live off campus then they must have at least 90 credit hours or more and they must also apply to have the privelege to live off campus. Living off campus is not apart of the university experience. You are considered a commuter if you live off campus.

1 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Cigarettes Count? I have never heard of any drug use on campus besides alcohol (which is not very many people) and some people smoke.
