Degree: Audiology/Audiologist and Speech-Language Pathology/Pathologist
Graduation Year: 2018

I absolutely loved Indiana University. It is a beautiful campus with some amazing professors. I had advisors who would answer any question I had about the degree I chose and they were more than willing to help me make sure I got the classes I needed in the right order. I also loved how Indiana University would offer fun classes that you probably would never take had it not been offered. For example I took ballroom dance and metalsmithing and a class on Indiana folk art. I learned so much about not just my field, but things that genuinely interested me.

Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2011

I greatly enjoyed my time and my social experience at Indiana University Bloomington- I would not trade that experience for anything. However, that experience did not have any impact on my future career path, career opportunities, or future earning potential. I received my most valued career and work experience through internships that were self sought after and that I did not receive credit for.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2012

It was everything I could have wanted and more. The campus was that from a movie with beautiful historic architecture and a magical forest in the center of campus. The classes exceeded my expectations and always had me wanting more. I am grateful that I did a major in psychology with a minor in music. The opportunities on campus were never ending. If I had the chance to do it all over again, I would. The community in Bloomington, IN is what sets it apart from other campuses. I was fortunate enough to have obtained several jobs while working towards my degree. Those jobs allowed me the opportunity to create long lasting relationships in the community that I will never forget.

Degree: English
Graduation Year: 1995

I had an amazing experience at Indiana. Bloomington is a great place to live and study. The quality of my classes was exceptional, especially after I completed the general education requirements and began working on my upper level courses that focused specifically on my major(s ). I received excellent counseling, and years after receiving my degree, I still remain in contact with several of my professors who are now my academic peers.

Degree: Business Administration and Management, General
Graduation Year: 2004

I graduated from Indiana University with double majors (Business Process Management and Islamic Finance) and double minors (Economics and International Studies). The Islamic Finance degree was not officially offered as a formal major. I proposed the curriculum under the auspices of the Individualized Major Program (IMP) and the Department of Religious Studies. Since both my majors were granted from different schools (Kelley School of Business and College of Arts & Sciences), I obtained a Bachelor of Science and a Bachelor of Arts. Careful planning would make it possible to finish the two degrees in four years as most requirements for both programs can be fulfilled concurrently. However, it took me an extra year due to my previous transfer from another university. Total credits I had accomplished were more than 140, but that was because there were credits from my prior university which did not fulfill any requirements. The business degree program came with two career development courses which proved to be very valuable down the road during my career. Unfortunately, the career service did not prove to be very useful. Maybe they are not designed for international student in mind. As one-fifth of the student body consist of international student, the office should have brought more international student-friendly employers to campus. Please be aware that it had been more than ten years since I graduated so the programs may change. Please check with the admission. The alumni office actively engaged with alumni despite my club reside in southeast Asia. I appreciate the engagement as they brought together alumni in my country regardless of their graduation classes a camaraderie that ranges from dinner parties, alumni outreach, and even to educational partnerships with local universities.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2016

The Kelley School of Business is highly ranked and rightfully so. I had an amazing four years with so many opportunities to get involved around campus, volunteer in the community, and work in teams to address complex business cases. An added bonus to a great education at a reasonable cost: Bloomington being one of the most beautiful college town you'll see.

Degree: Journalism
Graduation Year: 2009

I specifically chose the Journalism school at Indiana University for it's program. Although the classes were very informative, they were not adapting to the progressive times and the advancement of technology. Journalism students were not allowed to minor or take telecommunication classes due to strict policy. As of now, the Journalism school has been unfortunately retired. Overall, wonderful school, but very large. Class sizes vary on headcount so intimacy with instructors varies.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2013

Choosing to attend Indiana University in Bloomington was one of the best decisions of my life. I spent four amazing years here that I will truly never forget. The campus is absolutely gorgeous and well maintained, full of history, and the programs available are nationally recognized. The libraries, computer labs, science labs, and the Union were all great resources for me to use during my undergraduate career. I truly believe that my time, money, and effort were all well spent here. While there are many students attending IU (~40,000), Bloomington has a great small town feel, so it is not too overwhelming.

Degree: Science Teacher Education/General Science Teacher Education
Graduation Year: 2009

When considering my college choices, I went on 7 different campus visits, but none came close to my experience at Indiana University. I knew that IU was a good school, but I had no idea how good of a school that it actually was. I was blown away at the number of nationally recognized programs and faculty that call Bloomington home. Having a highly ranked school in my content area was important to me, and Indiana University gave me plenty of options. What excited me most, however, was the number of opportunities that presented themselves along with the academics. There are almost too many clubs and extracurricular activities to choose from. At the risk of sounding clich, there is something for everybody. I got involved with the student radio station, worked with the local church ministries, played on three intramural teams, and met my future wife...and that was just freshman year! My advisor kept me feeling confident and focused on my course direction, while my professors kept me engaged and motivated. I have nothing but good things to say about Indiana University and I know you will feel the same way. If you want more proof, go take a visit.
