I went to IUN from 2009 - 2013 and got a Bachelor's of Art in Fine Arts. I am not returning to the same school to get a Bachelor's of Science in Geology.

I really enjoy being a student at Indiana University Northwest. I feel like the professors really care about their students and challenge us to learn. It also saves me a lot of money and is very convenient so that I can have a job while I go to school.

I would have to say that my experience so far while at school has been one of a kind even though I have not been there along time.
