Indiana University - Northwest Reviews
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.
I have always had a great experience going to the campus! I've only been there a few times but each time staff and students are friendly and are a huge help, especially with the incoming freshmen.
I like that all staff members ranging from teachers, librarians, student support services, advisors, admissions and more were very hands on and willing to help you out in any way possible. I also really enjoyed some of the extra study sessions that the school provided to its students. I think the only thing I would change is the prices at the cafeteria. They tend to be a little pricey and a lot of the students are already paying a lot of money to attend IUN. Overall, I am very glad I chose IUN and that IUN chose me.
