I like the campus and hope to learn more when in in-person classes.
My overall opinion of Indiana University- Northwest is very decent. I don't have anything to complain about because the school is very nice in being very cultivated but also in having a nice sized community for the students to come together as a family. The school is where you can get most of your work done with the help of many students on campus.
Indiana University gave me the opportunity to return to school, which I appreciate very much. Though, the major I wished to pursue is not easily accessible. Communication majors may struggle to receive the education they urn for here. Other degree programs, such as psychology, criminal justice, nursing, and the fine arts fields are very lucky to have such an affordable option to receive their degree. Speaking of affordability, books, and supplies from the bookstore were much cheaper than expected, plus the staff in the bookstore is always willing, ready, and able to help! Also, there is a new Arts and Sciences building, which once again, if you're fine art major of any kind you will be thoroughly impressed by. Most classrooms are designed for discussion type classes, and the building itself is prioritized by its eco-friendly design. Plus, if you're into theater, you will fall in love! The new Arts and Sciences building has not one, but two brand new theaters with accompanying backstage space! In all, Indiana University is an amazing campus, with amazing opportunities, I just wished it would place more importance on COM majors.
Indiana University is a great school that offers an amazing curriculum. I don't believe we have any sororities or fraternities on campus nor do we have an on-campus housing. We are not as large as our sister schools in Bloomington or Southbend so we don't participate in or have sports like these do nor do we have the numerous activities but we do have a great curriculum. If your education is what's important to you than IU Northwest is the perfect university for you.

Just go for it! College is a great experience. You may feel like high school is boring and that you don't ever want to set foot into a classroom again, but college will most certainly better your view on education. Unlike high school, college gives you the opportunity to learn many valuable things that you actually care about! I learn so much in one day just by listening to lectures alone. I never thought I would find learning fun until I actually started college. I also find that the way classes are set up gives me a lot more free time to study, spend time with friends or family, or enjoy hobbies. Don't let high school discourage you from gaining a higher level of education. In today?s economy, finding a good job and your dream career may be impossible without a college degree. Don?t let such a wonderful and exciting opportunity pass you up. Get the higher level of education you need and enjoy every second of it!
The class size and how close everyone lives to one another. Its nice to live close to class mates so if you need help with an assignment they are close by.
The best thing about my school would have to be the professors. I'm well into my sophomore year and I have yet to have a boring, dull, or uninteresting instructor. To top it off, all my instructors are very wise in what they teach. Their vast knowledge on the subject and their ability to make the classes interesting helps bring a certain level of fun to my college experience.
I had researched the classes and professors at this campus before attending, therefore, I felt knowledgable and prepared to come here. I had attended Purdue University West Lafayette a few years back, which is a huge live-on campus university, so I was fully ready for everything at IUN.
I graduated from Indiana University. The name itself is something to be proud of. I brag about the professors. It felt more like a highschool classroom in that the professors really knew who I was and where I was headed with my future. I was able to excel and graduate with honors. When I was there the campus was making improvements to its layout making it easier to stay there all day and study between classes while enjoying the benefits of computer labs and a new student area.
There is a lack of community. IUN is a commuter campus, so there are a lot of people who just want to go in, do their classes, and go out. They don't want to make this place more fun. There is also less socialization between students than I would like. However, IUN does realize this, and I appreciate its attempts to bring us together as a campus.
My classmates are similiar to me in many ways. Every class that you take pertains to your major in some way and seeing others that will have the same future as you helps you feel comfortable interacting in the classroom.
I believe this school is a great school for my education and to get certified to be a teacher, I want to to be an inspiration and a role model for special education students, I believe since its an four year college I will not have to go any where else to go for my education, I will not have to transfer to any other school because I heard so many good things about this school, I know many teachers , and other professionals that went to Indiana University Northwest and got their proffesional licenses from this great school.
Indiana University Northwest located in Gary, Indiana is best known for its undergraduate studies in the pre-professional careers. These include such careers as medicine, law, and dentistry. They teach rigourous courses in these areas to prepare their students to advance to a graduate level. Scince they are a branch of the main Indiana University campus down in Bloomington, they offer their students a smaller scaled classroom setting with a fewer number of students per teacher for optimal learning experiences.
It is not in a good area, Gary is one of the most dangerous cities in the world. I have a three year old daughter that i stay home with during the day while my husband works, then I go to classes at night. It's scary sometimes walking long distances to my car, alone, at nine pm.
I think any person could attend this school as long as they had the determination to succeed. There is such a wide range of diveristy that it is a welcoming environment to people from all walks of life. It is also challenging in the aspect that you know you are recieveing a good education in the process.
The person that should not attend this school would have to be the young people who want to party and mingle. The people who wants to get away from their family and live the full college expirence. The school is cheaper but there is a reason why it is. It is because there are very few events going on and it is in Gary. If you are young and want to party with other young people not caring about price just go to Bloomington.
The académica at my school are very entertaining, and keeps students motivated, things that they are passionate about and willing to learn more about it.
I think that the most popular student activities or groups are obviously the study groups. Alzó foreign language groups. And banquets, and clubes such as, ley club etc.
The stereotype of students at my school i believe to be true is the way people are dress and perform themselves on campus.beacuse they'll see you for that as a la el. They will not ser you any further. But are willing to vive chance to meet and know one another even more. I do not believe this stereotype to be accurate.
