Marian is a growing university with a bright future ahead. It is currently renovating its facilities and will soon add a new school of business as well as a revamped P.E. Center and cafeteria. The professors and faculty care about their students, and are typically available to help. Class size is generally small, which allows for more personalized interactions between student/professor. The university has been steadily trying to improve itself for a few years now, and it is exciting to be in an environment where both the students and the university are trying to better themselves. The future is bright for Marian.
Marian is a close knit community in the heart of Indianapolis. Even though the area immediately around campus is not the most appealing, downtown is only 10 minutes away and Broad Ripple is a mere 15. Academics are a big draw to the campus with our nursing program and the newly established medical school has drawn more attention to us. I enjoy campus life. There is always something to do, even if it's just studying with friends in Alumni. Marian was a last second addition to my list of potential schools and immediately changed my mind when I visited. I accepted my offer and competitively interviewed for scholarships, which really helped affirm my decision to go to Marian. I'm so happy with my decision and can't wait to finish my undergraduate years there!
I came here here because of the small class sizes, the 21st century Scholars program, and because it's close to home. I stayed because after my first year here I realized the university as a whole was invested in my personal ability to become an ethical leader. Faculty, staff, and peers are all giving me the tools to enter the workforce with the ability to judge right versus wrong in a world where ethics are tested daily. I am gaining the ability to lead those who are lost in the confusion with the understanding that the world is shifting from a competitive atmosphere to a cooperative atmosphere.
Marian University is a great university with a small town feel and big city opportunities. Campus is located 10 minutes from downtown Indianapolis allowing students to have all of the opportunities big city universities have to offer. The faculty and staff are willing to help all students and make themselves readily available; many professors even give out their cell phone numbers. The students have created an atmosphere that allows and encourages each person to succeed. Everyone looks out for one another and makes sure that everyone is doing well, not only academically, but socially as well. Marian offers a variety of services that allows each student to grow: a library for studying, a student center for social activities, and the Exchange for career building, just to name a few. Without Marian, I would not have had a successful college experience and would not feel as confident as a do today about entering graduate school and, in the future, a career.

In high school, my grades were low and my commitment to education was even lower. I made a choice when going to college to put my best foot forward with studying and work ethic...and I succeeded. My college experience changed my life due to that small choice that I made to really make a difference. My advice would be to whoever it is going into college; don't ever be discouraged that you can't do it, it may seem frightening but if you set your mind to it, you will succeed. Second, get involved. Get involved in anyway that you can. Before I realized it, I was leading organizations, making decisions about the college and helping others out along the way. These experiences have allowed me to grow as an individual and enhance my professional experience beyond anything I could have ever imagined. The power is really within each student and having the faith and courage to see it is key. The transition to college can be difficult, but if given the right chance, each student can lead and grow by making the first step.
I feel that I my school is best known for their academics. We do have sports but I don't think that is Marian's main focus. The faculty is more focused on education and achievment and this is what is seen at Marian College.
Marian is a place where lots of learning takes place weather it's in the classroom or on an sports field. Marian has a beautiful campus and great reasources.
The campus enviroment was very friendly and the faculty was very welcoming.
Marian College offers the opportunity to not only gain an exceptional education but gain experience in many other areas to build a professional profile. I attended Marian College as an undergraduate and am going back for a second undergraduate degree and my experience far outlived anything that I expected to. Not only was I provided a defining educational experience, but I experienced leadership skills that will carry with me throughout my professional career in the future. I was given the experience to be a student leader and for my voice to be heard.
I think the worst thing is that it is getting a lot bigger. I liked the small school feel of it, which is disappearing.
The type of person that should attend this school is one who is motivated and determined to succeed. They should also like small classes and caring professors. This school is a great choice for all who want more in their education.
The most awesome diverse people I've ever meet in my whole life
Someone who loves small classes and needs more one on one attention from their professor. Someone who loves small schools and can walk around and recognize everyone.
Teachers are almost too focused on academic curriculum and not on helping the students comprehend the material.
The majority of nursing professors did not care if you succeeded or not and did not have interest in helping students if they asked for help or were struggling to understand material. Also, I received no financial aid and have accumulated over $130,000 in student loans between this degree and my previous bachelors degree
The student body community and staff members of Marian. Automatically a student has a “family” when attending Marian. Everyone is friendly, and experiences the Franciscan values even if they are not Catholic (like myself) The staff and faculty are like big brothers/sisters, parents or mentors to the students. Marian isn’t just a higher education institution, but also a familistic atmosphere. Two of the staff members of a residential buildings are my mentors, and we talk and laugh about anything.
