IWU is a fantastic school providing numerous academic and extracurricular opportunities. Because we are a private Christian college, there is a lot of great community with likeminded people. Furthermore, smaller class sizes leads to more interaction with fellow students and one-on-one interactions with professors.

I am so grateful that my campus is one that is well taken care of. From the resident halls to the grounds is well kept and clean. I feel like I have a lot of things to my disposal, and if it is not I can ask for information to enquire about it. The social life started out rocky. I am not a super social person, but as I got comfortable I came out my shell and found likeminded people who were willing to understand me and my culture. I feel safe in knowing that I have people in my corner who will be there for me when I need them. The international team (from the IGO office) has been so helpful with this.

Indiana Wesleyan University has been a second home place for me because since the first day I have visited, every single person on campus made an environment that I feel so welcomed. I am on the soccer team here, and social, academic, and athletic environment is amazing.
