5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My overall experience has been the best. I have learned so much more of the real truth about my people and their treatment by the non Natives that was never taught at public schools. I find the family experience has been one of my best experiences. Everyone who has graduated from HINU considers the University home. My basketball coach is the best. He is Native as well as traditional and lives up to these values. He is hard working and works the team the same way. He treats everyone the same and the guys who work the hardest are the ones who play. He is a great role model as well as a mentor to me. I am so glad I decided to transfer to HIUN and would do it again and again. I would encourage all Native students to come to HINU.

Facilities: HINU is unique in many ways. There are 110 different Native Tribes that attend HINU. Learning about the differences in Tribes and how we are so much alike makes my experience here very remarkable. We are all one big family which includes not just the students but extended family. People say that HINU is just a party school but I disagree. The campus is a alcohol and drug free campus and if you are caught doing the drugs and alcohol you will be let go. At the other University I attended, it seemed that partying was the only reason kids went to college. Partying was everywhere, in the dorms, in the Park and every where. I was even told by my coach that I should go party and clubbing with the other members of the basketball team even though I was underage and all that lifestyle is not my values.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: Since I am a member of the men's basketball team, I find the athletic center, weight room,gym and other facilities just what I need. Anytime I need to use the library I find the staff very helpful as well as the resources especially the older documents concerning Natives very helpful as well as just interesting to read. There are lots of campus activities and I am very happy with my experience at HINU.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: I don't use these services too much since I live off campus, but anytime I have I have had no problems with them.

College Sophomore

Online Courses: HINUdoes not have on line courses. Besides, I prefer being in the classroom so I can interact with the professor and other students,

5 College Sophomore

Career Services: HINU has programs that help with job placement or helping you to apply to another University to continue your education for higher degrees. Most of the staff are former students of HINU so the job prospects are great.

5 College Sophomore

Student Body: The students are all Native from federally recognized tribes all over the county. The student body are always helpful to anyone who needs help. I wouldn't want to attend school any where else.

5 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: The tuition is great and I had no problem with the financial aid process. The financial aid office was very helpful and I have no complaints.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: I have found everyone helpfully with any matter I need help in. My credits transferred. The only problem I have encountered is since I live of campus, I find that rental agencies take advantage of Native students by charging higher rent because they believe all Native students receive money from the casinos. The rental agencies also misrepresent themselves to the Native students and when you arrive for your apartment it is usually the most run down and oldest part of the apartment complex.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Everyone professors, staff and students are willing to help anyone. Everyone is treated fairly and not judged by their income or social status. I have not had any problems finding answers to anything I need. I would recommend any Native student to attend HINU.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: The degree I want to receive in Education has all the classwork and courses I need. I can even earn my teaching certification here and unlike most Universities, I do not have to wait and take extra classes. All my professors are helpful and this is the only University I know of that considers family situations such as serious illnesses or the death of family members and give the student time to attend to these needs and give them time to make up their work when they return. The workload is great and we have lots of discussions in all of my classes. The professors are helpful in any area we need help in. The class registration process was much more organized than the first University I attended.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: Attending Haskell Indian Nations University has been a life changing experience, and was worth moving from home to attend school. I appreciate the staff and their assistance in understanding my situation with being a single mother of a five year old. Haskell Indian Nations University is a great Native American Indian school, and Tribal College.

Student Body: I enjoy the students who attend Haskell with me. Since we are a Tribal college there isn't a lot of diversity but we still experience each others tribal culture.
