Marian University (Indianapolis, IN) is a diverse campus, with students from across America and around the world. With scores of different faiths and traditions, Marian is rooted in universal Franciscan sponsorship values: Dignity of the individual, Peace and justice, Reconciliation and responsible stewardship.
From business to education to entertainment to medicine, Marian graduates rise to the top in their fields—a tribute not only to the great education you’ll find here but also to the hard work of our placement staff to help students find the right fit after college. Indianapolis was recently ranked as one of America's 10 best cities for finding a job. So you're already a leg up on success.
We are small enough to give you the individual attention you deserve—and connected enough to help you get where you want to go. The University sits just minutes from the heart of downtown Indianapolis— an amazing blend of cosmopolitan culture and Midwestern charm—with nationally recognized restaurants, a vibrant art and music scene and big-time professional and college sports.
Marian University's more than 3,000 students have multiple opportunities to get involved, develop leadership skills and explore new interests through numerous organizations, including student government, show choir, student theatre and intramural athletics.
The Marian Knights belong to the NAIA and the Mid-Central Conference. We’re home to the 2012 NAIA Championship and 2014 NAIA finalist football team. The Knights are one of the top golf teams in America and a 30-time winner of national collegiate cycling championships.
