Marian University welcomes Class of 2023

September 9, 2019

Marian University welcomed the second largest first-year class in its history on Tuesday, Sept. 3, when 329 members of the Class of 2023 arrived on campus for the start of the new academic year.

The new first-year and transfer class marks the third straight year the incoming class is more than 405 students. Many of these students come to Marian from local Wisconsin high schools and two-year schools; however, the class is well represented by students from throughout the Midwest and states as far away as Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Nevada, New York, Utah, and Washington. Marian also welcomed students from Burundi, Canada, Nigeria, the Philippines, and Vietnam.

“The Marian University community is pleased to welcome these new students to our family. With the number of students in this class and from the last several years, we are nearly at capacity in the residence halls as we begin the fall semester,” said Dr. Andrew Manion, president of Marian University. “We are continuing to live our mission and remain committed to delivering an excellent academic experience at an affordable price, and I believe that resonates with the students who have selected Marian, as well as their families.”

Those interested in enrolling for the spring 2020 semester or the 2020-21 academic year are encouraged to attend one of Marian University’s upcoming fall open houses; information can be found at
