What is your overall opinion of this school?

The people that I met on campus were very nice and welcoming. It has taken me a bit longer to get adjusted to the school since I am not used to being away from home. Since the campus is so small, it is easier to get around to my classes. Overall this is a great school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

This college is fairly good. The foods okay and the dorms are decent enough. The class size is the best part, 30 or less students per class, and most of the professors are exceptional in teaching their subject. They all know what they're talking about and are very energetic about their subject. You can tell they really care about people getting the most out of their class.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I enjoy going to UIndy. The other students are really nice and approachable. The teachers are easy to contact. They also always seem to care. The class sizes are small, so the teacher knows your name. The one thing I dislike is that it is not as diverse as I would like it to be. Overall I like this University.

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

The University of Indianapolis is the best decision I could have made for my college decision. I progressed in athletics as well as found my true dream career.

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

My school is small, comfortable, culturally diverse, academically diverse, and challenging.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

The University of Indianapolis is technically a liberal arts school; however, the majority of the students seem to fall under the categories of physical therapy, occupational therapy, nursing, exercise science, and athletic training.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would let myself know that I need different study skills. I would notify myself of the website www.ratemyprofessor.com so that I can look into the professors that are available for each course. I would also have told myself that I should have done some shadowing for Occupational Therapy, so that I had that readily available for graduate school. Another topic that I wish I would have known ahead of time is registration for classes. I worried about that for no apparent reason. I thought I was not going to get into all of my classes. Now, I am on my last semester and find that that was the least of my worries. Lastly, I would let myself know that I would have hard times. I would miss my mother, have doubts of succeeding, and wonder why I am putting myself through this. I now know that the key is to keep my eye on the prize. Knowing that I am in college to be an OT someday is where my motivation comes from. I may have to go through rough times right now, but it will be worth it when I'm helping people as an OT.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Your opportunities that are in front of you right now are endless. There are ways to get ahead and improve your chances right now. Remember that time is money. You've got to start working smart, dressing smart and make life happen instead of waiting for it to happen. First, you are determined and a hardworker. Don't settle for a simple minimum wage job. Don't make money for someone else. Use your enginuity to make money for yourself. Find ways that will make people want to give you their money. Diversify your portfolio of talents and income. Second, you have to dress smart. Ditch the t-shirt and move to a button down shirt. Decide to look like you are the future of business because you are. The way that people will see you will largely influence their willingness to associate with you and invest their time or money in you. Third, make life happen isntead of waiting for it to happen. Don't wait for the opportunity to present itself. Go out there and create the opportunity. The proactive approach will provide many open doors. Life is what you make it. Go out and make it happen.

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

The close proximity within downtown Indianapolis is nice. The school is fairly small so it tends to be easier to build relationships with your professors to develop internships or to just have a good standing with your professor. The business and nursing programs are quite active; there are many clubs related to those fields and many ways to get involved for prospective nursing and/or business students.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Focus more on scholarships! They are so important, especially for more expensive, private schools. Also the size of the school does matter quite a bit. People say small schools are better because you "aren't just a number," but unless you go to an incredibly small school, you really will be a number unless you make yourself outstanding, and that's okay, you will spend more time learning about yourself than wanting others to learn about you. Also, pick a major that is practical but double major in something you love, like English or philosophy. It will make life easier.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

I wish I had known more about what the school could and could not offer because of its size. It would have been more helpful to have known exactly what I wanted when I was first looking for schools, though.

Describe the students at your school.

My classmates are willing to help anyone who needs help. We care about how everyone is doing and we don't want anyone to fall behind. If we can't help someone in a certain situation, we direct them to someone who would help them as much as possible. We are a community who will help each other as much as possible.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would tell myself to try and get out of the dorm room. I have grown up for most of my life in the house. I was more of a indoor girl, but my parents tried to get me out more. As my senior year started, I became involved in athletics and had been on the girls track team for three years. I want to become fit and lead a healthy lifestyle. This also wants me to help others achieve the healthy style that they want. It will help be a better person overall.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

I personally don't see anything as bad. It is constantly improving, and that is the best thing that can happen. I don't consider anything to be bad.
