Student ActivitiesMarian University held #25 in the U.S. News & World Report 2015 ranking of the top colleges in the Midwest, released earlier this week. Since 2011, the university has gone from #41 to #25, climbing steadily to its current spot.

Earlier this year, Marian University was also ranked #1 in Indianapolis and Top 10 in Indiana by Money magazine for “Best Education for Your Money.” Factors involved in the ranking included: quality of education, affordability, and outcomes. 

“In addition to nationally ranked growth in enrollment, these rankings show that even more importantly, Marian University continues to show a dramatic drive in advancing the quality of education,” said Marian University President Daniel J. Elsener. 

With nearly 3,000 students enrolled, Marian University continues to grow and recently opened Alumni Hall, a new state-of-the-art student center where students can meet to study, hang out, and/or eat at one of the three new food options (Starbucks Café, Papa John’s Pizza, and Grille Works).

In August, the university began construction on The Overlook at Riverdale, new graduate student apartments set to open in Fall 2015.

The new apartment building is being constructed primarily to house students from the Marian University College of Osteopathic Medicine, which will be in its third year with an estimated 486 medical students and another 500+ graduate students in the Marian University Academy for Teaching and Learning Leadership.
