For Christian Ministry studies, Indiana Wesleyan University is definitely a higher learning institution with professors that really care for your spiritual, emotional and physical growth and well being. The courses are easy to understand and the accesses to the many study aids is great.

Not the safest area, but i've heard good things from people who live off campus. It's usually way cheaper (around half off room and board) But you can only get off campus if you are 21 and a senior with a certain amount of credits.

Doing Drugs = You get kicked out
Drinking (on/off campus) = kicked out

The only way you're getting to town is walking (about a half mile) or taking a car. No other options. Except maybe a bike or long board. (good luck in the winter)

Wireless in most classroom buildings and newer dorms, but a lot of dorms still aren't wi-fi enabled.

Nothing special. Pizza hut, McDonalds, KFC, Steak and Shake, Burger King, Papa Johns.

Intramurals are huge on campus, almost every guy competes in flag football during the fall, and attendance dwindles as the seasons progress. Basketball in the winter is big intramural and varsity and well as intramural indoor soccer.

The town is horrible. Very bad school systems, crime ridden, high unemployment rate. And a lot of locals don't like the white, rich students.

I met some very cool people and best friends at the school, but overall I would never go there again. I went in as a Christian and left as an atheist. I couldn't believe the lack of critical thinking on the campus. A good amount of students (especially in the communications department) thought they were the most amazingly intelligent people in the world. In reality they weren't any smarter than the average person.

Overall the facilities are great! Newer buildings, nice (but small) weight room. Lots of gym space to play basketball or indoor soccer.

It's a Christian school, if you get caught drinking (on or off campus) you get kicked out of school or in big trouble. A few people have parties but there isn't much drinking at them.

I was in a brand new building so that was good. Campus dies in the winter (because it's freezing outside). Not a huge sports school but our soccer teams usually do well. And basketball gets good attendance.

The transfer scholarships are very good. Other than that it's kind of a hassle and I had to check on it every once and a while and beg for more or threaten to transfer.
Communications department has a ton jerk bag professors. I had three different advisors my three years there. One professor is legitimately autistic and is a laughingstock of anyone who has ever taken any of his classes.
Two others are so full of themselves is laughable. One does a local TV show in rural Indiana and thinks he's the man. Another used to do radio talk shows in rural PA and now it grasping to some idea that radio is making a comeback.
They just hired a PR professor from Korea and she is very out of touch, hard to understand, and unable to connect with students. Her first year she made at least three senior girls cry.

Depends what major. Nursing and ministry are top programs. Our communications department is kind of a joke.
Athletic Training is supposed to be pretty good.

When I was at school they had two rules that have just been overturned. No "R" rated movies and no "M" rated video games.
Each dorm only had three visit days (when members of the opposite sex can come to the dorm room) per week. And very limited hours. You also had to keep a light on when they were up there and keep the door opened. RA's were expected to walk around make sure nothing was going on every night. It was a lot like babysitting (I was an RA two years).
If a girl gets knocked up she will get kicked out of the school but the guy will only get disciplined.
It's a backwards place.

I lived in the brand new building that had a parking lot very close to the dorm. Unfortunately it was very poorly ran. Underclassmen (half the residents of the building) had to park across the street, it doesn't sound like far, but in the freezing winter it really sucked.
The main parking lot was huge, but we were only allowed to use four or five of the rows, which stretched almost to the underclassman parking lot. The remaining 70% of the parking lot was reserved for staff, faculty, and commuters (only account for like 15% of the student body) Never enough to fill it up.

I'm from the Northeast, so coming to Indiana was pretty awful. It's very hot in the summer and first few months of fall, and humid. Then in the winter the campus turns into a huge wind tunnel and the weather is very cold and the wind chill is freezing. Not a lot of snow but a decent amount of ice.

IWU is almost entirely a white, republican, evangelic christian community. I only knew of 10 or so African-American students on campus during my three years there, and I think that says something if people are keeping track. There was a hate crime there my senior year that the administration made a big deal about (and rightfully so).
Almost every person you talk to comes from a typical christian family and at least 25% of students are preacher's kids.

Lots of dining areas, including buffet, and take out meals. Pizza, Chinese, burgers, Chick-Fil-A, and a sub line are all included on the dining plan.

Health & Safety:
Safety on campus is good, but the surrounding area is extremely bad. We've had multiple cases of girls being raped while living right off campus

Guys & Girls:
The guys and girls on campus are always very modest and take pleasure in making sure that they respect each other at all times.

The diversity on campus is incredible, probably one of the best International Student programs I have ever experienced.

I have not had an internship yet, I am only a freshman.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
