Degree: Fitness Trainer
Graduation Year: 2015
"Indiana University offers a wide variety of courses. I personally found interest in the health care field and chose to study Kinesiology. Indiana University provided me numerous classes with outstanding professors allowing me to learn a great deal. Ultimately, Indiana University allowed me to be accepted into my graduate program and provided me all of the necessary tools."

Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2004
"My major was quite new so my resources were few. That has changed according to the newsletters and information sent out by the department since my graduation. Safety was paramount and I never felt unsafe on campus. Professors and TA's were accessible and all campus operations (bursar, registrar, and finance) were easy to navigate."

"Indiana University- Bloomington is truly a college that has it ALL. From the beautiful campus to the committed professors, its obvious that this school, though large, can make any student feel at home. It's not easy to be a big college school and make every single student, 40,000 or more, feel like they have a unique and special college experience, but Indiana University definitely succeeds. The campus spirit alone is enough to bond complete and total strangers. Whether corroborating about mutual love of basketball or working with the top notch computer scientists, IU seems to be a common link that unites people across the globe. It is pretty astounding to walk through campus and know that your future college career can be anything you want it to be. There is no lack of opportunity at IU! Robotics club? They meet every week. Chalking sidewalks to spread cheer for the big game? Meet at Jordan Parking Garage at 9. Want to start your own club? Grab a professor to sponsor and get started! At IU, the future is yours for the taking. The opportunities are limitless, the education is tried and true, and the friendships last a lifetime. I am so proud of my school and my choice, and hope that you give IU the chance to change your life. I promise-- it will!"

Degree: Performing Arts
Graduation Year: 2011
"IU has small town charm with a big campus feel. I had great instructors and left with a great sense of pride upon graduating from the Jacobs School of Music. Those within my field know of IU's great reputation for dance. I had many opportunities that I would never have experienced in another program."

"Indiana's Kelley School of Business not only prepared me for a career in global business processes, but provided first class job placement support. The network of Alumni's from IU is exceptional. As a bonus, the campus is beautiful, and student life at IU Bloomington is tough to beat. I highly recommend to any incoming prospective students."

"I went to the satellite campus in Indianapolis. It was ok. It is a commuter campus so you really have to work to make relationships there."

"IU was an amazing experience. The buildings, history, professors, and plethora of opportunities allowed to gain the full "college experience" and pushed me into the career path I am currently on. Additionally, the friends I made while studying there are still big parts of my life today."

"Not the safest location, but has a police department on campus. Kind of not the cleanest place, but it is a college. Nice people, some really great professors."

Dustin Nisley - 7/13/2016
Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2012
"Going through the Baccalaureate Social Work program at IU Bloomington has prepared me significantly for my career. The professors knew us on a first name basis, even though class sizes were increasing. We were taught by professors who have real world experiences in the field of social work, all with different concentrations. This environment was personal, compassionate, and created many well-rounded social workers with whom I am in contact today. We went in different directions and all continue to do amazing things, and I believe it was based on the intimate nature of the social work courses. The professors care. They want us to succeed, because they understand from working in the field of social work, that more great social workers are needed in order to advocate for change for those who do not or are not able to have a voice to advocate for themselves. It is incredibly important that I continue with my graduate degree in social work so that I may continue to work towards my passion for helping those who cannot advocate on their own behalf. It is my belief, that with my graduate degree in social work, I will be able to dive in and help people understand themselves; to help them understand what their underlying root issues are and to work on those issues, instead of doing what I have experienced many other professionals not in social work doing with these families and clients by putting a bandaid on the symptoms. This University provided me with an abundance of cultural diversity and helped me see outside of the small town I came from and that there is more to this world than just the city limits of where I grew up. It is very important for me to attend a University that holds many of the same values that I do, both personally and professionally. This is why I have chosen to attend IU Bloomington again for my Master's Degree program."
