College is an interesting place that's for sure. Based
upon religious (Catholic) values the students here are somwhat closeminded.
There are no admissions standards that I know of.
If you have a GED they will take you
and if you have completed more than 12 credits at
another institution of higher learning they will probably take you
Here is the best part: Kids
walk around campus thinking that Marian College has been in
existence since 1851...WRONG!!!
St. Francis Normal, as it was known
then, became a four-year, state-approved institution that merged with Immaculate
Conception Junior College to form Marian College. In 1937 the
college moved to Indianapolis under the direction of Mother M.
Clarissa Dillhoff, after securing a state charter and purchasing the
James A. Allison estate.
Success brought growing pains
and, in 1948, the college began an expansion program that
included the addition of Clare Hall, the Gymnasium, and Marian
Hall. In 1954, as Marian Hall was completed, the school
became the first co-educational Catholic college in Indiana . Two
years later the North Central Association accredited Marian.
So think twice beffore coming here. It is both
good and bad.
