4 College Junior

Majors: There are a lot of opportunities for internships for students who are interested. The career center is very helpful for helping students find internships or even jobs. And education majors are in the classroom quite a bit before their student teaching.

3 College Junior

Administration: It's pretty strict in certain ways, but it's not typically overbearing.

College Junior

Greek Life: There is no Greek life at Marian.

College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I've never lived off campus, so I can't really rate it.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: I got scholarships that are helpful, but tuition is high enough that I still have a ton of loans.

2 College Junior

Campus Food: The dining hall food isn't that great, and the restaurant selection isn't that much.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: An internship it required as part of the business degree. I have not served as an intern yet.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: They need to have more JV teams. Many sports do not have them. JV teams help develop younger players.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Room and board are a little overpriced. The residence halls are average.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I can't really comment as I am not in a frat.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: They seem to really care.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: It is just ok. The surrounding neighborhoods are not the best. But, the savings over campus room and board can be substantial.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: On campus police are evident. Campus is fairly safe.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I always feel safe on campus. I've never had an incident where I felt threatened. I do know that there as been some theft on campus, but I've never experienced that.

3 College Junior

Athletics: The football team has now been two nationals twice in three years. Football is big here. The cycling team is also pretty big. Sports as a whole are definitely a part of campus life, but I don't know if they're as big as they are at other schools. There are a good deal of students who are athletes.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: The dorms are clean and all of that. In Doyle where all the freshmen live, there's clearly wear and tear because of the age of the dorms. Sometimes that can create some problems. My freshmen year we are trouble heating the room because cold air came in from cracks around the window. Maintenance can be bad about fixing most problems, but if it's serious, they're usually pretty good about doing it quickly. However, when I was a freshmen, laundry was a pain because so many of the machines were constantly broken. I haven't had that problem in either of the dorm buildings I've been in since.

Doyle is also much more social than the other two dorms I've been in since. Many people keep their doors open and are very welcoming of other people knocking and coming in and pretty much all times of the day.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: I don't eat off campus much because I try to stick to my meal plan, but from my experience, the nearest restaurants to campus are mostly fast food. That being said, there are a ton of options around all of Indianapolis, so you can probably find whatever it is you're looking for.

4 College Junior

Academics: I really like the program I'm in. I feel like I'm being prepared for my future, and I know that I'll have a ton of support behind me when I go to find a job. The workload is challenging at times, but I also know that it is very important that I learn all of those things. It's a good kind of challenging.

4 College Junior

Academics: The professors are typically great. You can tell they're passionate about their field, and they are almost always incredibly helpful to students. You can tell that they care about the students' well-being and their academics. I've had three advisors as well, and all of them were so helpful. It's been clear that they care about me as both a person and a student, and I know that I can always go to them with questions or problems that I have just like I can with a lot of other professors I've had.

Classes also tend to be small class sizes, which is typically very helpful.

2 College Junior

Diversity: While there is some amount of diversity, there's not that much. I think it's most noticeable in religion since it's a Catholic school. There's a higher percentage of Catholic students than there would be at a public school, but that's expected. Economic background is probably a bit more diverse than in other areas, but that's a bit harder to judge. Political beliefs also seem more diverse than you would perhaps expect. The majority of the student body is very homogeneous though.

3 College Junior

Local Area: I really like Indianapolis. It's a nice city. I don't plan on living here after I graduate, but that's mostly because I kind of want to explore other places. I definitely want to keep the city open as a possible place to live in the future.

There are some cool events in Indianapolis like an international festival, and of course, we have professional sports teams, especially the Colts, which you are sure to hear about everywhere you go. There's also the famous children's museum, which has free days for college students. Some of the stuff in there is definitely geared towards young kids, but it still has a lot of neat stuff as well. The IMA (art museum) also used to be a good option, but they're apparently going to start charging $18 dollar admission which sucks. However, I think the art and nature park is still going to be free, and that's my favorite part of the museum anyway. It's really nice to explore on days when the weather is nice.

Shopping is probably the same as most other places I would imagine. There's nothing outstanding or worth noting I don't think, but there are also various options.

As for local attitude toward students, since it's a city I've never really experienced anything specific to me being a college student out in public. There are several colleges in Indy anyway. However, I do know that Marian has a good reputation job wise in my field, and as far as I know, in many other fields Businesses around Indianapolis seem to really like working with Marian students.

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Students probably do tend to dress more on the conservative side, and most students don't tend to worry about how they're dressed when they go to class, especially early morning classes. Many of the students here are probably religious, although definitely not all. A lot of people are in relationships, and most of the ones I know of seem to be serious.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It's alright I know many big schools sound a lot better

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I don't hear too many problems.

3 College Freshman

Local Area: I couldn't see myself living in Indianapolis. I know many of people that live outside of Indianapolis and they get to work fine.
