Degree: Management
Graduation Year: 2013

The school is extremely well rounded and trains you highly for work in the nonprofit sector. While the classes at times feel like they are irrelevant, they work together to provide you with skills you never knew you needed. The network of people will continue to help and support you throughout your career. Plus, Indiana University is beautiful and fun!

Degree: English
Graduation Year: 2009

I went to one of the off-site, smaller campuses and it was cheaper and more convenient than other universities in my area and state. I enjoyed most of my experience there, they really help me to develop my critical thinking skills. I wish they were more involved with the job search process after graduation. I don't feel like the advisors cared as much as I would have liked about my education and future. I wish I would have taken advantage of more programs and made it a priority to further my different areas of interest. Most of my qualms where with my choice of study and not so much with the university itself. It was a hard time to graduate. Making smarter decisions would have helped me in the long run.

Degree: Psychology, Other
Graduation Year: 2008

IU offered a great social experience for growing and establishing 'who I am'. I have such fond memories of IU and love to go back frequently. 4 years was not enough.

Degree: Secondary Education
Graduation Year: 2010

It was an experience that I am grateful for. It was a lot of work, and a lot of money. But in my opinion, worth it.

Degree: Management
Graduation Year: 2008

It was a great experience all around. I was able to get a top-notch, well-rounded education that prepared me for my career, and I was also able to meet people from all walks of life. The student body has opportunities to get involved for everyone there. Also, the campus is absolutely beautiful.

Degree: English
Graduation Year: 2010

IU provided a fun college experience in addition to quality classes. I suggest starting your Freshman year in a Living Learning Community (presuming they still have those) as they connect you to people with similar interests who can become friends and/or generally helpful in whatever your academic/lifestyle focus is! There are drawbacks of IU, of course. There is an excessive focus on the "big" sports; mostly I never bumped shoulders with athletes (specifically male athletes whose primary goal in college was to improve their athletic ability in popular sports such as basketball and football) since I tended towards niche classes, but what I did see of them in larger classes was that they were often absent, only showing up for tests, or were present but markedly lacking in basic academic skills such as vocabulary, engaging in discussions, and oral comprehension. Additionally, male students of the "tailgating" or "party on Mom and Dad's Dime" variety were numerous and made their presence known in an unwanted way for female students. In conclusion, for students whose primary goal is academic advancement, the "learning is optional!" attitude of a visible percentage of students at IU may drag down the atmosphere into something that is exasperating at times, but for those who can shrug that off the school offers fantastic courses that are worth it! With diligent planning of your living situation, classes, and social life, you will find that there *are* others who share your passions and there will be ample opportunities to form lasting, productive relationships with them while having a good time.

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2007

I thought that the Kelley School of Business curriculum was both challenging and exciting. The materials we learned were relevant, topical, and have assisted me as I've moved forward in my career. I would wholeheartedly recommend IU to anyone that was wondering if it was the right place to go.

Degree: Sports Communication
Graduation Year: 2004

Indiana University is a world class institution. Bloomington is a beautiful campus, the professors are friendly and knowledgable, excellent classmates/students/locals, school spirit, and plenty of sports and/or groups to get involved in. I would absolutely recommend IU to anyone looking for a great college experience.

Degree: American/U.S. Law/Legal Studies/Jurisprudence
Graduation Year: 1985

I went to Law School at IU Bloomington in the class of 1985. The group of students that I attended with were some of the smartest friendliest and most intellectually challenging that I have ever met. I can not think of a better place to pursue a Law Degree. My professors took a real interest in us and really taught us how to, "think like a lawyer". If you go, same some time to go to the Law School watering hole, Nicks.
