Fort Wayne: The Smallest Big City You’ll Ever Love

Nestled in northeastern Indiana, the city of Fort Wayne boasts lots of big city amenities.  From the thrill of a Komets hockey game in overtime to a relaxed day at the Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo, affordable activities for families abound.  Spend the day with the kids at Science Central or mom and dad can enjoy a night of fine dining at one of our many award winning restaurants.  Fort Wayne has everything you could ask for at a fraction of the cost in a bigger city.

Fort Wayne isn’t just fun, though, it’s affordable.  The median home price in Fort Wayne is a very reasonable $89,000.  For those who choose to rent the median is $664/month, with a number of very reasonable apartment complexes near the Seminary campus. Whether you’re single and live on campus (and enjoy our incredible Creative Dining fare) or married living off campus, there’s plenty of opportunity in Fort Wayne to live well on a seminarian’s budget.
