The professors at Indiana University Northwest are amazing! They truly care about their students success and understand the population and region in which they work. The professors are understanding of our schedules and are willing to work around our needs as long as we make the effort to communicate with them. The students are friendly, and although I have yet to join a student organization I have had a great social experience

The Education program is ok. I dislike that certain classes are off campus and far away. It becomes a hassle if it doesn't work with your schedule or if you don't have the transportation. I feel like this program should encourage astudents to find work closer than traveling more than 15miles. I absolutely hate that! The work load is ok. You must have a complete portfolio and pass the exam before getting into the teachers program. Also the exam is only offered in a few locations. Once again, not convenient for travel. They need improvements asap.

From what I have currently experienced with the Business Administration program, I am very pleased! I love how we are given a chart for all of the classes that we have to take so that we can keep track for how many more we have to take and the grades that we have to achieve in order to pass those courses. My personal career goals are to become a branch or regional manager at my current job as a CSR at Centier Bank! My degree is definitely helping me achieve these goals!
