    Indiana University's Bloomington location is very beautiful. The limestone buildings and carefully curated landscapes set up a pretty picture to look at, especially when you're stressed from studying. With such a large campus, Indiana University is also very spacious and each class has few students which is so important for having an engaging learning environment. There are also many resources and facilities available for the students to utilize -- for free!

    IUB is the place to be. Despite the large campus, you still feel connected to everything that's going on. There's plethora of resources at your disposal, and all of your professors just want to see you succeed. The atmosphere of athletics, clubs, and various other ways to get involved help you meet lots of new people! Also, just strolling down Kirkwood in your free time really makes you appreciate Bloomington and the vast diversity of foods, people and places within it.
    I am currently an undergraduate student, but I encourage many to attend Indiana University, Bloomington. Although the campus is huge, there are many opportunities to meet people from around the world. Many of the smaller classes have amazing professors. For example, my French professors are some of the best people I have ever met! The opportunity to work alongside amazing professors has made a huge difference in the way I advance my education. I'm looking forward to the next couple years.
