Saint Joe Indy

Saint Joseph’s College of Marian University - Indianapolis recognizes the determination required to balance school, work, and other things you may have going on in your life. Here are a few resources on campus to help you achieve your degree:

Dining Services

Keeping fueled throughout the day will help you stay energized and focused. As a Saint Joe Indy student, you are able to choose an optional meal plan or pay as you go. There are many dining options on Marian’s main campus, such as Subway®, Oath Pizza, Starbucks, the Dining Commons, and more. Whether you are in the mood for a deli sandwich or something fried, we have an option for you.

Fitness Center

The newly opened Drew Family Health and Fitness Center is another resource provided to Saint Joe Indy students. The Drew Family Health and Fitness Center provides an ample amount of space for students to exercise. You have the choice to lift weights, do cardio, or both on the state-of-the-art machines. You can even watch Netflix and Hulu while on the elliptical, stairs, bikes, or treadmill. 

Library

The Mother Theresa Hackelmeier Memorial Library has three different floors and is the perfect place to study and do homework. Want peace and quiet? The third floor is for you. Need a place to chat for a group project? Try the first floor. Don’t worry, food and drinks are allowed so feel free to bring in a coffee from Starbucks or a sub from Subway® for those later nights. 

Speaking Studio

We all know it’s easy to get trapped in the mindset of winging a speech or presentation, however, it is extremely important to understand how to effectively communicate your ideas and expertise—without waiting until the last minute. Head to the Speaking Studio to get help on your next presentation. They’ll provide guidance during any stage of the speech process. 

Writing Center

Having troubles with writing or want to make sure you get a good grade on a paper? Well, do we have good news for you! Saint Joe Indy students are able to utilize the Writing Center. This free resource provides a range of services including writing workshops, online tutorials, formatting expertise, and more. In addition, you have the option to schedule an appointment online with a fellow peer or a trained professional.

The Exchange

The Exchange, your resource for career services, is there to help with your job search—during school or post-graduation. They’ll help with resume building, practicing interviews, and picking out what to wear for your interviews. Need a suit? They’ll also give you access to the Dress to Impress closet. At The Exchange, all you have to do is make an appointment (so no need to wait in line just to find out that no one is there).
