Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2005

Informatics at Indiana University was one of the first of its kind and it was a great program. My own dissatisfaction with the degree is the fact that I got lured into thinking it was a "hot" new field, when I never intended to work in any kind of information technology role. The major, though, gave me an opportunity to focus my learning on a cognate area, and I chose telecommunications applications because I really wanted to learn 3D animation, Flash and computer design-related topics. I was looking for more with the degree itself in terms of how to tie it all together, and wish I had the opportunity to take more classes of interest, however it's my own fault that I didn't go with my gut and major in fine arts. Let me get one thing straight though: the Bachelor of Science in Informatics is a great degree for those looking to enter the world of IT with more flexibility and opportunity to customize your major to your personal goals. If you're interested in Bioinformatics, Chemical Informatics or more specific applications of computing, it's perfect. Funny enough though, all of my jobs have been a combination of IT and some other field, which is exactly what the major is all about. The bottom line is to choose a major you're really interested in trying out for a while before you do anything else. Informatics is great if you don't want to fully commit to Computer Science, but if you're more interested in your focus area than the main concepts of IT, look somewhere else. Regardless of my few negative points, which I blame myself for, there's nowhere else I can imagine having gone to college than Indiana. Five stars overall for the entire experience!

Degree: Human Services
Graduation Year: 2015

I would not have changed one thing about my college experience. Indiana was the perfect school for my because it allowed me to excel academically and socially. I entered Indiana as a freshman and had no idea what I wanted to study and only knew about five people (out of 50,000 students). One week after graduation I got a job at a hospital, got accepted to a masters program for Occupational Therapy, and moved to a city where I live within a five mile radius from 25/30 of my sorority sisters. Indiana has not only set the roots for my academic and future career life, but my social life as well. If you are looking for a school that balances the two, then look no further... I only wish I was in your spot so that I could relive the best years of my life again!

Degree: Marketing - Advertising

Don't rely solely on your guidance counselors advice. Not specifically my university, but I know of many where the counselor misguided the students and they had to take additional courses, etc. Do your own research and have fun!

Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2012

It's too expensive for what it offers. Unfortunately for most young adults and myself, we are told from a very young age and all throughout are schooling to try to get in college and how important it is. It's significance is limited, unless you want to join the boring 9 to 5 workforce.

Degree: Anthropology
Graduation Year: 2010

Great professors, great opportunities, however it is a large school so it's also possible to feel lost and insignificant, especially in classes over 50+ students.

Degree: English
Graduation Year: 2010

IU is great because it is so large and offers so many different kinds of courses. Even if you're not sure what you want to do yet, you can explore many different majors all on one campus.
