Whether you’re a newbie freshman, a seasoned senior, or in the neighborhood, take advantage of the activities and the splendor of fall at Marian University.

Instagram fall on campus.


The trees are changing colors and fall is upon us. Take a photo that shows fall on campus, use the hashtag #FallforMarian, and tell us what made you #FallforMarian in the caption. While you're at it, follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.   

Explore the Nina Mason Pulliam EcoLab.

Marian Univ-Fall-57

Nothing says fall like a 55-acre nature preserve going from green to red, yellow, and orange. You can head out any day for a peaceful walk or attend an event like the bird walks that happen every Wednesday.  

Get lectured.


Marian University offers a variety of lecture and learning opportunities, including: The Richard G. Lugar Global Studies Speaker Series, The Department of Theology Annual Lecture Series: Nostra Aetate, the Showcasing Psychological Science and Pedagogy (SPSP) Conference, and the Pathways to Teaching Panel Discussion.  Whether you want to learn more about education in East Africa or how you can become a teacher in Indiana, we have something to offer. We literally could not fit all of our options here! Visit our calendar for a complete list.        

Experience a home football game.

With winter just around the corner there are only a few home games left. Don’t miss out on watching our Knights trounce the competition on Saturday, November 7 and November 14. Experience the tailgating, the football, and the victory.

Attend an art show.

Backpack Art

Did you know we have two art shows on display right now? Backpack Art is featured in the Marian Hall Gallery and “We were Created to Look at One Another, Weren’t We?” is on display in the Michael A. Evans Center for Health Sciences Gallery (second floor). The shows are free and open to the public. Gallery hours are 9 a.m.-5 p.m. weekdays.   

Do yoga.


 It’s free on Wednesdays and it’s good for your mind, body and spirit.

(Disclaimer: The above photo is not of the actual yoga class; it is a group of medical students in the shape of "MU" celebrating the end of the academic year. But, this is the closest we have to a photo of students doing yoga.) 



Well, let the kids trick-or-treat. This annual event (happening October 29) brings the kids of alumni, students, faculty, staff, and friends to campus to explore our residence halls and collect candy from students. Alumni: this might be your only chance to show your kids the old dorm room.  

Forget Netflix and head to the Marian University Theatre.

Netflix might be the status quo for entertainment, but the theatre is a pastime that will never die. Upcoming performances include Christian Youth Theatre Indy: Legally Blonde, the musical Jr. and Little Shop of Horrors. Earlier this month, Knight Fusion Singers brought down the house with their fall show.  

Gain experience that matters with The Exchange.

Ettiquete Dinner 2015 064

In case you haven’t heard, The Exchange is an amazing source for students and alumni. This month’s events include employer recruiting, an etiquette dinner, and guidance in finding a fulfilling career. Their bi-weekly newsletter, Experience that Matters, gives you all the details on these incredible opportunities. It’s a must read.

With all we’ve mentioned, we’re probably forgetting many more ways to #FallforMarian. There are just too many reasons to love Marian University, no matter the season. So, be sure to tell us by using the #FallforMarian on social media.
