Rinky

I love it! I love the way the classes are set up. I don't have to worry about which class I want to take next, once registered in the program, the classes are all set up. I like that that syllabus is constant. I know exactly when my assignments are due. I know what is expected of me and how the grades are being recorded. It's straightforward. For someone who was out of school for more than 15 years, this was a scary move, but Indiana Wesleyan has made it easier to become and adult learner.

Tia

I think Indiana Wesleyan University is a great place to live and study. I would recommend anyone to come here to study. The art classes are great and there are a lot of great equipment and teachers at the school. The gen eds are also very informational and are a great way to see other ways of looking at life and the world around us.

Jonah

What makes the college is the people. Everyone there is very nice to talk with, and will help you in any way they can. All of my professors that I've had are fantastic, and really want you to learn, not just get a good grade. The atmosphere is safe, and you should be comfortable walking around at night with no worries whatsoever. I love it here!

Keisha

It is a great school and very friendly! Professors from my experiences have been understanding and really do their part in mentoring those who need the extra support. It truly feels like a Christ-like environment. I love the small classroom size! Also, they have free student academic resources!

  2. What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

    If I could go back in time and talk to myself in my senior year of high school I would stress the most how important it is to be confident with yourself and try new things. The transition to college for me was rough because I was a bookworm. I was afraid to make friends even though I wanted to becasue I thought it would get in the way of my work. I was isolated and that led to developement problems within myself and my identity. People aren't going to bite you and you will never know what will happen until you try. It is important to reach out of your comfort zone and make good relationships with people so that when times get rough you have a support group. Don't isolate, congregate! That is the motto I would give my high school self when she was on the edge of entering the college world.

  10. What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

    The worst thing about my school is probably that it has so little diversity. The number of racially diverse has increased this adademic school year, but the great majority of the school consists of white, middle to upper-middle class students from conservative backgrounds. I would love to see more students of different races and countries around the world. It would also be better if students and faculty were open to more discussion about new, original ideas and views that are not consistent with the perspectives of the majority.
