“Why Marion?” will seek to answer the questions: Why are we all here? Why do you study here? Why do you work here? Why is IWU in Marion? Why does place matter?

This event will explore the importance of place and the complex, evolving relationship between IWU and the City of Marion. This event seeks to educate IWU students on the City of Marion as well as increase interaction and harmony between IWU and the City of Marion.

“Why Marion?” will take place this Wednesday, February 28th at 7pm in the Globe Theatre of IWU’s Student Center. Everyone is encouraged to attend.
