Fun Facts

  • In April 2014, Indiana Wesleyan University created the Bastian Center for the Study of Human Trafficking. The first of its kind, the Center will bring IWU's people and resources to bear on in the study of and fight against the human trafficking industry.
  • It's a tradition at Indiana Wesleyan University that every dorm unit participate in the Bowman Boat Race, where students build a life-size boat to paddle across the campus lake. Oh, and the boats are made of cardboard. Needless to say, most students wear a lifejacket.
