"I think college is important for some and not so much for others. As I saw from some of my classmates you take on tremendous debt. Make sure that college is indeed for you before you decide to take on that 4 years. If you do it will be some of the best 4 years of your life. You will grow, make great friends, have new experiences and start to mature."

"Indiana University is a large and impersonal college; it's a good place to go if you have a strong idea what you want to do and are willing to do the work yourself to get it, but there's not much guidance if you don't."

"Indiana University is a great place for students to engage in fun and learning. There is so much here to see and do. Learning takes place in both the classroom and out. Many of the professors and teachers here are well rounded and educated individuals. They are assets to the students and provide so much knowledge. It is a big place, but once you get the lay of the land, it is really a great place to be and feels like a close community."

"Indiana University Bloomington is a beautiful and vibrant campus. The campus offers many unique trails and pathways to get to and from class. This particular aspect is what first drew me to attend Indiana. There was just something about walking campus during any season that offered a kind of serenity that you won't get anywhere else. It didn't take long to realize that along with the campus, the students and staff were also beautiful and vibrant. The diversity at Indiana really makes attending there a once and lifetime experience. I am extremely happy with the degree and with the time I spent at Indiana!"

  • Degree: Biology
"My time at Indiana University has definitely been a positive one. My major, human biology, is a newly formed major and it encompassed man things that I am interested in. As a pre-medical student, the courses are definitely tough. I would say that I can count on my hand the number of faculty that I believe went above and beyond to teach and sincerely want the best for me. I'm sure this is the case at most large public institutions and I'm sure that I am a stronger person because nothing was handed to me."

  • Degree: Music
"Indiana University Bloomington and the Jacobs School of music have been a wonderful and busy experience for me. There are so many different interesting classes you can take and I have learned so much beyond just my field that i find invaluable. For music students my recommendation is to come for graduate school, due to the work load for undergraduate music major being so intense. The greek system has a bad reputation from the past couple of years are past and the bad eggs have been removed from the University which has really straightened out the on campus greek system. The off campus fraternities and sororities are great opportunities as well for students who want something more specific, like a black, latino, or even Chemistry fraternity! The athletics have always been a point of pride for IU and it is not just limited to varsity sports. The intramural system is vast at IU and has every sport you could imagine. There is even a group you can join to play Quidditch. I am very satisfied with my experience at Indiana and would recommend to most people but definitely Business, music, and IT majors to consider IU."

"The rigor of the classes associated with my major prepared me for the intensity and pace I would find with my graduate studies. Without this preparation, I would've found myself drowning and falling behind. The wide spectrum of classes my major provided also gave me a large knowledge base that would allow me to pursue many different careers if I so pleased. Indiana University also did an amazing job at providing job and career fairs to those students who needed help networking and finding help with internships, graduate schools, or careers outside of school."

"Indiana University has a great campus that offers a variety of different degrees and organizations for one to join. As a Public Health major at IU I felt as though my professors taught me a lot about the field through their experiences in the field. I enjoyed the different jobs I learned about based on careers that my professors had. They also did a great job of showing me how to network and meet other professionals in my field."

  • Degree: Optical/Optometric Assistant
"The Indiana University School of Optometry has done a great job in preparing my classmates and me for our careers as future optometrists. The friendliness and availability of the instructors, the wide variety of patients we are able to see, and the close relationships of the students in my class have made me feel welcome, excited, and well-prepared to begin practicing as an optometrist. Bloomington, Indiana, the town where the university resides, has so much to offer as well. Coming from a private undergraduate college, it has been a new and exciting experience to live life on one of the big ten campuses; there is always something going on! I would greatly recommend this school to anyone seeking a career as an optometrist because we have some of the best training and experience in the nation! The classes are strongly clinically based (which I think is very important for a medical field institution), and have definitely prepared me to take on the challenges of meeting patient's needs. In addition, the school is one of the leading institutions in ocular related research, allowing students to observe the field from an entirely different perspective. It allowed me to work hands-on in a lab obtaining data from patients that will hopefully lead to new and improved methods of treatment in several of the biggest concerns in optometry today. Overall, IU has been an inviting and educational experience for me thus far. I have learned so much in such a short amount of time, but feel like I am more than well-equipped with the knowledge that I will need for my career. The school is a great place for optometry, as well as optometry-based research, and I have nothing but good things to say about the school and its optometry program."

"Kelley offers various courses and the quality of professor are amazing. The school staff are friendly and happy to offer any assistance. The network of alumni is great and helpful. However, the location of school is not so competitive which may be less attractive to employers. But the living expense is lower than that of big city and safer."
