Marian University invites all prospective students to visit and take a campus tour during Indiana Private College Week, July 23 through 27. Visitors will get to experience firsthand the unique personality of Marian University through tours, informational sessions, and conversations with students and staff. Plus, visitors between the ages of 16 and 20 touring one or more ICI campuses during Private College Week will have the chance to enter a drawing for an Apple iPad.
Marian University is a great Catholic university in a great American city that welcomes people of all faiths. Along with the highest-caliber liberal arts education and championship-level sports, Marian University encourages spiritual development and incorporates the Franciscan values of dignity of the individual, peace and justice, reconciliation, and responsible stewardship.
“We often hear that students knew from their first campus visit that Marian University was where they were meant to be,” said President Daniel J. Elsener. “If you are considering college in the near future, Indiana Private College Week is the perfect time to come and experience the undeniable energy on our growing campus.”
This year marks the second year for Marian University’s participation in Indiana Private College Week. From Monday, July 23, through Friday, July 27, Indiana’s 31 private, nonprofit colleges and universities are throwing open their campus doors to students, parents, and any others involved in the college selection process. Although ICI campuses encourage and welcome visitors throughout the year, this concentrated week offers the opportunity to experience one or more campuses in a less formal way during the summer. It also allows students who may not have ever considered attending one of Indiana’s independent colleges to begin to explore that option.
According to research conducted by Eduventures, 71 percent of high school students identify the campus visit as the most trusted source of information about a college. There’s certainly no better way for students to experience the “feel” of a campus and to discover their “best fit” for college.
"We want every family to find out why earning a degree at an Indiana private, non-profit college is smart academically and smart financially,” says Richard L. Ludwick, ICI president and CEO. “Unlike at other types of Indiana colleges and universities, the majority of our students graduate in four years rather than six—two-thirds the time it takes elsewhere.”
