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.

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.

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.

1 College Freshman

Party Scene: Very Poor – With all of the freshmen on a midnight curfew and even some upper classmen with poor grades there is not much going on at night. There is a very tiny party scene and you only know about it if you have the right friends. Other wise most people leave campus for the weekend and travel to Indy or go to steak and shake for the night

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Not Healthy – They're a many fast food places in driving distant but that is about it. The only other choices are I-hop which is frequented often by all the student and a Buffalo Wild Wings

4 College Senior

Campus Quality: Evening Class Cohort – The evening class was the only option as a working spouse and providing care for 2 elderly family members. I love the christian atmosphere. However, having a vast array of instructors and not all following the APA the same way has had a profound effect on the grading of our class assignments. Putting that aside IWU is a great place to pursue additional educational degrees.

4 College Senior

Guys & Girls: Adult Students – most students are adults who are continuing thier education while remaining active in family, work and social areas of life. IWU is a christian based facility that has much diversity and variety of people that aim to become world changers

4 College Senior

Local Area: IWU College – local shopping area with restuarants and businesses

3 College Junior

Scholarships: recieved all funds needed for program, however, the process seems to be unoriganized between the accounting and financial aid dept

5 College Junior

Parking: parking is close to building, no permit needed, plenty of spaces, safe and well lighted

Technology: Although a compouter lab is available for usage. I never have used the computer lab, printing is a hassle. You must have an account previously set up to print anything.

3 College Senior

Weather: There is snow during winter months, but does not cause any significant problems for this writer. There are occasional cancellations of class, which is not minded by students.
