What are you made of?
Making the Biggest Decision of Your Life.
The biggest factor in choosing a college is the experiences that will shape you over the next four years. At Marian we'll be there to challenge you, encourage you and guide you on your journey to becoming the person you were meant to be. So as you consider Marian and other colleges, ask yourself, "what are you made of?"
Then ask which school is best equipped to help you find out.
What kind of academic support do you need to be successful in college?
At Marian University, you'll be assigned an academic advisor, who is an actual professor. He or she will give you as much or as little support and guidance as you need. But never be afraid to ask any professors or staff questions, even as you're still considering Marian. They'll be glad to help.
Getting the one-on-one attention you need.
A lot of colleges and universities offer a low faculty/student ratio, while others offer challenging academics. But it's the rare combination of both, plus faculty and staff that truly get to know you, and care about you and your future that makes the Marian University academic experience unique.

Because this is what we're made of.

What's one thing you can't possibly live without at college?
Experience of a lifetime.
There is nothing like your college years, so plan to make the most of them.
At Marian, you can enjoy arts and cultural performances, cheer on national championship athletic teams, hear guest speakers, play sand-pit volleyball, attend campus movie nights, and join friends around the fire pit, to name just a few.
Join the Club.
When choosing a college, consider joining a campus club or student organization. Joining a club is great to make friends, build soft skills, apply what you've learned in class, get leadership experience, build your resume, and find out what you're really made of.
Ah, Parent-Free Living
Breakfast at Starbucks, Papa John's or Subway for lunch, and then dinner in the dining hall with friends. And don't forget casual walks through the Nina Mason Pulliam EcoLab. A game of sand volleyball. Pulling an all-nighter and waking up 10 minutes before class. This is college life and these are just a few of the experiences that make living on campus at Marian so awesome.Living at Marian opens in new window

Note: if you said "a lot", you're going to love it here at Marian. If not, don't worry, there's plenty for you to love too.
Let's Go Knights!
We take our athletics seriously here.
Tailgating before a football game is a tradition on college campuses across the nation, and Marian is no exception.

Made of Character
Competitive athletics builds character, teamwork, discipline, and other life skills that serve our student-athletes well. We believe athletics serves as a laboratory for leadership development. And, with multiple national championships last year, winning can be pretty fun, too.

Step up, speak out, and change things for the better.

How much does location affect your college experience?
Do you prefer a quintessential college town, or access to shopping, dining, jobs and internships that a big city offers?
Welcome to Indy.
More than a college town. This is a college city.
What's Indy made of? Great restaurants and nightlife. Professional sports. Music, arts, and culture. Big city living and Midwestern charm. But most importantly, it's made of great companies and employers. And Marian will help connect you with those employers for internships and jobs.Visit Indy opens in new window

Get the help you need.
How will you pay for college? Summer jobs are a start. Look for scholarships, grants, and other funds you don't have to pay back. Ask what academic, athletic, needs, merit, or talent-based scholarships colleges offer. Don't forget about workstudy programs. Consider the difference between scholarships, grants, and loans.
