Fast Facts About Indianapolis

Just under one million people live in Indianapolis, making it the third most populous city in the Midwest and the 16th largest city in the nation. Known as the “Circle City” because of our famous Monument Circle in the heart of the city, Indianapolis residents enjoy a relatively low cost of living and a high quality of life. Because two-thirds of Americans can drive to Indianapolis in one day or less, the city is also known as the “Crossroads of America,” which is why it’s attractive to top logistics, distribution, advanced manufacturing, and other business enterprises that need to move goods and materials quickly. In addition to healthcare, pharmaceuticals, and the life sciences, Indianapolis is a high-energy hub for young professionals in a variety of fields, especially in high-tech industries like software development, cloud computing, and other tech enterprises. As a DO student at Marian University, you’ll be in the heart of it all. Our DO students live in a thriving community with entrepreneurial spirit, a robust economy, and outstanding opportunities for medical and health professions students.

“Moving to Indianapolis was an amazing experience! I had second thoughts about moving so far away, but everyone welcomed me from day one. When we had a little free time, I love that we could instantly find something to do, whether it be trivia nights or concerts. Coming from a fairly large city where people were constantly busy, this was really important to me.”
