Indiana Wesleyan University-Marion Top Questions

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?


Some of the students.


Not everyone takes their academics as seriously as I do, which may be a silly thign to say, but I think it may indeed be true.


The most frustrating thing about my school is the fact that I feel I can never stop working (in every aspect of that word). Some of this is caused by my financial situation, which is why I have two on-campus jobs and work 15-20 hours a week. Some of this feeling is also caused by the necessity to achieve higher grades to both pass my classes (grades higher than a C are required to pass many classes) as well as keep my academic scholarship (which is the only reason I can afford to attend this school).


I have not encountered anything about my school that I view as frustrating.


The most frustrating thing about Indiana Wesleyan would probably be what many people call "the bubble". Indiana Wesleyan is a Christian university and that comes with a lot of pros and cons. Many times, there are a lot of rules and regulations that seem uneccesary and can create a "bubble". The "bubble" can have a positive affect on some people, but I feel like it may end up doing more harm than good.


The price of books at the school bookstore.


Unequal female to male ratio.


They are so wrapped up in themselves sometimes that they do not ask what is best for the students. They also seem to like to throw money away and not help the students finanically. It is very frustrating not knowing if you are going to be able to afford school next year or not.


The most frustrating thing for me at Indiana Wesleyan University is that my school is not very diverse, and I also struggle financially.


The rules are easily the most frustrating thing about IWU. But hang in there! Because this is a Christian University, there are rules that don't apply to any other university. Hang tight, it's worth it. If you can abide by the rules for four years, you will find some of the greatest and strongest relationships you could ever find and you'll get a top notch education.




The most frustrating thing is the conservativism. Students on this campus have a hard time accepting anyone who might drink or party a little. They believe everyone has there own right to do as they please, but then they criticize them for not lying to themselves and being who they are.


Many people were very intolerant to any views contradicting their own, especially about personal activities outside of school such as drinking, dancing, smoking, etc.


The freezing Indiana winters!




Lip service to "world changing" but lack of support for study abroad and cultural diversity.


It was very socially restrictive - it do not allow students the freedom to make their own personal choices. You're not allowed to drink, smoke, watch R-rated movies, dance, and there is curfew for freshmen. This is college - get serious.


I think that it is frustrating that a lot of students take this university for granted. It is a private institution so it is stricter, but all around I feel that students don't realize how good we have it here.


Some of the rules baby us and are too strict, which doesn't allow us to become responsible, sensible people.
