Indiana University Northwest is a campus where students can feel they are at home where as on other campuses, students may often feel a bit lost or alone. Although it is a commuter college, there are many ways to get involved in the school such as sports, clubs, and work! Indiana University Northwest is committed to its students and faculty. Students have many opportunities to work with professors and coordinators on large projects that teaches students how to think critically. No professor, coordinator, or advisor will turn a student away if he or she needs help with anything. Everyone there wants the students to succeed and give them a sense of confidence when they leave IUN.
The professors at Indiana University Northwest are amazing! They truly care about their students success and understand the population and region in which they work. The professors are understanding of our schedules and are willing to work around our needs as long as we make the effort to communicate with them. The students are friendly, and although I have yet to join a student organization I have had a great social experience
So far, I have had a great experience attending Indiana University Northwest. The staff including counsellors, teachers, tech help, office workers and cafeteria staff are all so friendly and very helpful. When i felt overwhelmed or confused about finances or homework or even how to work my laptop, there were always helping hands in that building who showed genuine concern for my future success.
