Why Marion?

The Growth Council, in conjunction with IWU’s Student Government Association, will be hosting “Why Marion?” an event that will explore the importance of place and the complex, evolving relationship between IWU and the City of Marion. "Why Marion?" will feature 25 people from the IWU and Marion Community who will speak about why they choose to live in Marion. The City of Marion Mayor, Jess Alumbaugh, will open up the event and he will be followed by a variety of alumni, faculty, and community members. This event seeks to educate IWU students on the City of Marion and help people pay closer attention to where they live, why they live there, and what it means to be a part of a place. All students and faculty are encouraged to participate in this conversation
