The restaurants that are around the campus are good and some do offer discounts for students, but some don't. Also it could be more than fast food restaurants.

Fond Du Lac have many nice apartments that are around it's just many are close to the shopping mall and not very close to the universities that are around. At the same time the apartments are very affordable and priced well and they look nice and livable.

Everyone who comes here knows it is wisconsin and it snows here. Size of campus makes it really easy to navigate. Might be hard for west coast student for awhile.

Good proximity to parks, lakes, and great outdoor activities.
Easy to get to Milwaukee. Not much nightlife but students create their own activities and very easy to get to know ther students due to small size of university.

Don't be timid about trying to work something out. Keep pushing politely. They want to work with you.

First 2 weeks under my belt living in the dorms. So far I've noticed lots of underage drinking & rowdy immature "high school" students. For what tuition costs for some of us, they need to get this under control!

It is Wisconsin, so Spring, Summer, Fall, always excellent weather! Winter can go either way, some good days, some days its better to stay in the house. If your from the area its nothing your not use to!

Fond du Lac is a large city, there are great restaurants close by and many more throughout the city.

I have only completed 1 semester at Marian, just about to start my second, and I have not observed anything related to a drug scene. I am a full time student, mom, and work a full time job, so socially I am not involved enough in out of class activity to observe and drug or alcohol visibility. I certainly have not ever seen it during the times I am there.
College Sophomore 2013-08-16T03:32:08Z
I feel that the buildings could use an upgrade. The property is well maintained, however, with the cost of tuition, I feel we could have nicer facilities. I do appreciate all of the free services that the school offers, including tutoring and the writing center.
College Sophomore 2013-08-16T03:29:58Z
I have enjoyed most of my classes, whether I have wanted to take them or if they were just prerequisites. All of my professors have taken the time to answer questions and have treated me with respect. They have also been understanding of my hectic schedule and have made appropriate accommodations to ensure that I am able to do my best. I have enjoyed my time at this school thus far and look forward to learning more and meeting inspiring people!

The Marian community is diverse when it comes to ethnicity, but it is mainly White/Caucasian. Most of the people at Marian is Catholic after all that religion was a main way of life at once because the school was founded and directed by nuns. I am a Baptist Christian and they accept me and anybody who claim another way of praise when it comes to God. Most kids are apart of what we like to call middle class families, but there are students such as myself that are apart of the lower class. Political beliefs can become a strong topic for the student and stall community at Marian not only because of social class but by what we choose to believe in. Lastly, I would say that there are a higher percentage of ladies at my school.

I'm from Wisconsin so the weather conditions for me are normal. People from different states may find it hard to live here because shows you what the difference between each season is without a problem. The Spring is filled with rain with little some heat, the Summer is hot and has lighting speed showers, the fall has a cool breeze with yards filled with color turning leaves and the Winter has a mind of its own. At times it will rain, have bad snowstorms or even freezing days with no snow. Oh, and it doesn't matter how bad the weather is if the walk ways are clear as well as the streets for long enough class and work will still be in session.

Mostly all restaurants are affordable in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin. They have everything from your local and everyday Mcdonald's, Culver's, Taco Bell and Pizza Hut. They also have great Italian sit-in places that are amazing. The also have places people a lot people may not have such as the fame founded food joint called A&W which is known for their Root Beer.

Guys & Girls:
The guys at Marian are pretty cool. You have a lot of guys from all over the state of Wisconsin as well as from distant lands. Guys have come from places such as Sweden and Canada. Now, when you speak of some hot guys most of them are athletes. Then, you have the young men that aren't necessarily hot when it comes to physical features but their minds are brilliant. They can create all the steam in the world with their way with words for the ladies, answers to questions for professors and ego's unlike any other. The ladies can be known for having their tom boyish ways because most come to Marian for sports. The girls come in all different ways from athletes, know it all's, and cool chicks with one thing in common and that is great work ethic!

Parking on campus isn't too bad. Parking fees were decent but it would be cheaper to park on the streets throughout the years.

Health & Safety:
This school is horrible on safety. I fell on my head in the dorm building and got a concussion and nobody knew about it. The school never contacted me after the fact to see if I was okay or anything. Also, the time I smashed my elbow, the hall director flipped out and did not know what to do. I don't feel like they are taking the proper care of their students. The campus security does not report drinking problems at the right times.
College Sophomore 2013-04-11T18:45:03Z
The computer lab is usually full and slow. The computers are out dated and take forever to load the class pages were you assess your homework. The wireless connection in my room is horrible. I have no availability or my assess is limited when it is suppose to be supplied for me. I am always having to call I.T. to unlock it for me to use.
College Sophomore 2013-04-11T18:40:46Z
There are drunks everywhere and my school does nothing to ensure there safety. People are getting caught for drinking when they are under control. This prevents me from sleeping and concentrating on homework. Even when people get caught, they have meetings to attend but the school does not follow through with them. For example, they are suppose to get kicked off campus on the second time and they never got a warning. Campus safety should be increased because people are getting in trouble with the cops for drunk driving.
College Sophomore 2013-03-22T19:22:04Z
I am happy with my program overall. I would chose it all over again if I had to. My career goal is to start off working at a management firm and then eventually own my own businesses. I am concerned that I might have a hard time finding a job in my field that will properly suit me and my interests.

There are multiple opportunities to do internships for local law enforcement. The school is seriously lacking when it comes to helping students find federal internships, which is sad since many people pursuing the bachelors degree or higher are looking for that.

Marian University has one of the best Criminal Justice programs in the country and is one of the very few to offer a double-major in Criminal Justice and Homeland Security.

There is nothing to do in this town unless you enjoy going to a bar. Luckily there are a couple of big cities nearby where you can go to have fun, but then you're driving a lot.
College Senior 2013-02-06T21:15:13Z
There used to be not much offered on campus as far as activities are concerned, but that has improved this semester. There seems to ba a lot more to do. I would still like to see a bigger gym to work with and a bigger selection of equipment.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
