I never knew how the world really worked until I experienced the many classes of my major (general studies) and my minor (business administration). Now I feel informed and confident about my place in the world. The professors were professional and humane. The staff was helpful and the students were engaging and friendly. Even though I struggled through Algebra, I loved all of my classes. In spite of my initial concerns over location the Gary Indiana area is safe and its inhabitants are friendly and well mannered and welcoming. Even though there is no night life, Chicago, a large metropolitan area is under forty miles away.
My overall experience at Indiana University Northwest has been great so far. I have been attending school here for three years now and I haven't had any problems. I thought at first it would suck because I stayed home and didn't go away to school, but honestly I regret nothing. I have met some amazing people and awesome professors. Everyone on campus is there to help one another and its a great environment. There are many different clubs to join, classes to take, and people to talk to!
