Degree: Human Services
Graduation Year: 2015

I loved all of my classes and what I was learning. I did have issues with my advisers (student adviser particularly) who did not help me out and ended up costing me an entire year plus not getting into my masters program. I had met with 4 different people in the 2 years I was attending IPFW. Now that I am job searching in my career field that took me 5 years to complete... I am being offered jobs that pay $9-$10 an hour. I am wondering why did I even go to school to make less than many retailers pay base level associates? As much as I loved what I did in school and the professors, I wonder if I was directed into the wrong field that I cannot even earn a liveable wage in. I wish my advisers would have advised me to stick to psychology or even go to criminal justice so I would have a more "esteemed" degree and considered for the higher wage jobs I applied to (and instantly denied from).

Degree: English Language and Literature, General
Graduation Year: 2013

I transferred to IPFW my sophomore year from Purdue University. I thought the transfer would be easy considering the schools were affiliated. However, the degree I chose was in the IU division of the school. I had to play catch up with core curriculum classes that were not required at Purdue. I was bounced around from advisor to advisor and never had a chance to really get to know a single person to help me plan my classes and work toward my goal. I used a bingo sheet and figured it out on my own. I loves the classes I took and the attention from my professors in those classes. You get what you put in with IPFW professors. I believe that is the way it should be. My educational experience was terrific, but the lack of guidance and understanding of how to work the system best for me left me in a lot of debt and with a degree that I am somewhat lost in what to do with.
