Current FNP Student - 11/17/2017
Degree: Nurse Practitioner (Family)
Graduation Year: 2018
"I WISH I COULD RATE THIS POOR SCHOOL A ZERO....IF I COULD TAKE IT BACK, I WISH I HAD CHOSEN A DIFFERENT SCHOOL. I HAD ONCE READ A REVIEW THAT THIS SCHOOL WOULD TAKE ANYBODY. NOW I CAN SEE WHY. 90% OF THE PROFESSORS DO NOT TEACH AND EXPECT YOU TO GUIDE YOURSELF IN LEARNING THE MATERIALS. NOW I'M JUST SPEAKING ABOUT THE FAMILY NURSE PRACTITIONER PROGRAM..... THEY SHRUG IT OFF AS IF WE AS ADULT STUDENTS SHOULD ALREADY KNOW THE MATERIALS. FOR THE STUDENTS WHO SAID ITS WORTH THE MONEY IN 2017....THESE STUDENT MUST BE SPEAKING BEHALF FROM OTHER PROGRAMS. THE WORST PART OF ALL THIS CHANGES GUYS IS:.... THIS YEAR IS THE TRANSITION FOR STUDENTS TO TAKE EXAMS IN CLASS NOT AT HOME ONLINE LIKE PREVIOUS. THESE PROFESSORS DON'T TEACH WITH NO GUIDANCE AND EXPECT YOU TO LEARN THE MATERIAL BY YOURSELF AND DEPICT WHAT IS IMPORTANT, THEN PULL INCLASS EXAM LIKE UNDERGRADUATE LIKE IT WAS TAUGHT WITH LECTURES. DOESN'T WORK THAT WAY. I MEAN IF THEY LECTURED AND TEACH, OF COURSE IT'D MAKE SENSE TO HAVE INCLASS EXAM!!!! YOU WANT TO COME TO THIS SCHOOL GOOD LUCK!!! I'VE WAISTED MY MONEY AND LOOKING TO TRANSFER ELSE WHERE!!!! EVEN IF OTHER PROGRAMS ARE SELF TEACHING, AT LEAST THERE WOULD BE FAIRNESS TO IT. I NEED TO GO SOMEWHERE ELSE WHERE IT'D BE WORTH MY MONEY."

"My experience at Marian was amazing and one I will never forget. While the cost to attend is a little more than a state school. I truly believe you get what you pay for. The size of school makes it feel like family. No matter what office you walk into you will receive the help you need."

"As a current student at Marian University, I would highly recommend Marian . Marian is a four year campus and has small classrooms . The biggest classroom size that I have been in was with 25 students, which is great because many professors get to know you at a personal level, and you get to know them ."

"Marian University is a great college for that "want to earn a degree on my time" individual. You can take classes online, on campus or both. The AGS program for Business Administration and Management was a perfect fit for me to finish my Bachelor's degree and still be able to work a fulltime job. The staff and instructors always make time to give additional assistance when needed."

Degree: Human Resources
Graduation Year: 2013
"Excellent opportunities for on campus, online or hybrid classes including day and evening hours. The professors and instructors were all involved and engaged. Career advice was outstanding with several programs available for specialized studies such as RN, graduate, and professional feeder programs. The administration was also very supportive, from admissions to registration and on to financial aid and career services. A small school set in a small city with all the amenities and opportunities made Marian University in Fond du Lac the right choice for me."

"Marian has a small feel with big city opportunities .The campus is located 10 minutes from downtown Indianapolis, but still manages to create a small university feel. Marian gave me the tools to grow into a better person through their commitment to creating transformational leaders. As a student, you take classes in all disciplines so that you not only are prepared to enter the work force in your respective field, but to also be an individual who is well rounded. The average class size is around 18 students so you receive one on one attention from your professors; your professors know who you are and will do what ever they can to help you. The students create a welcoming community, allowing each and every student to feel at home. Athletics are a large part of Marian; we have a multiple teams each year that make it tournament play every year and this past year, we had various cycling national champions, as well as both the football team and women's basketball team winning national titles. Although Marian may be small, it has many opportunities and experiences that rival large universities. I am so glad and thankful that I had the privilege of attending Marian for my undergraduate degree!"

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2014
"Attending Marian was an awesome opportunity. The undergraduate program in social work was challenging and the majority of my classes were taught by adjunct professors who currently worked in the field. I was not just a number; personal and professional relationships were built with professors because smaller class sizes allowed us to do so. My core classes prepared me for the field, I knew what to expect and the requirement for volunteer hours along with my 2 field experience sites helped build my resume. Very satisfied and am now ready to obtain my MSW."

"I loved it. The small atmosphere was very personal. I got to know all of my professors and fellow students really well. I've gone back to visit several times and all of my professors remember me. I have even made very valuable career contacts because of my connections to Marian. I love my school and would recommend it to anyone."

"I have been attending classes through Marian University's MAP program. It is great for adult students who work full-time and have other obligations in addition to school. It has been an intense program but I look forward to putting my degree to work!"
