I will be attending IUN next fall and I am very excited! The academics are great, the sports are rising in quality, and the art department offers so much. The only downfall is the location, but once past that, it has everything you need to prepare for future jobs.

This specific campus goes above and beyond for their students and staff. They remain patient and compromise with students to try and accommodate their needs. I wouldn't want to attend any other campus!
Good teacher-to-student ratio. More hands-on interaction with professors than at IU Bloomington. With so many students at bigger schools, students are not always given the amount of attention and focus they need. At IUN, though, the professors are very invested in your success and professional development. In particular, the geology department head, Kris Huysken, goes above and beyond her obligated duties. Not only has she and other professors helped students find and apply for internships, but if the student is in good academic standing they will also go with you to visit a college campus to check out a graduate program you may be interested in. Overall, although IUN does not have the widest spectrum of majors, the ones that are offered are taught by faculty that are genuinely concerned with your success during and after your time at IUN.
