    I chose IU because of the opportunity to study at a top 10 business school, as well as the Big Ten atmosphere! I absolutely loved the Hoosier spirit and picture-perfect campus when I came to visit as a prospective student!

    Why you chose IU: I chose IU because of its welcoming environment. I felt most certain of my decision when I realized Bloomington could be my home-away-from-home. At IU, we truly are a Hoosier family. Even despite the fact that IU is a world-renown research institution and a Big Ten school, each and every student, staff, and faculty member matters. There are so many opportunities for growth and development with like-minded people that a school of 40,000+ can feel like a school of 40. When I realized this, choosing to come to IU was the easiest decision I’ve ever made.

    All of my friends were going to Penn State.  I wanted to do something different, but still wanted the Big Ten school feel.

    I came to IU because I wanted the full college experience at a big school! My whole high school goes to Ohio State so I was looking for something different. The second I visited IU and saw this amazing campus and all the opportunities here, I knew this was where I wanted to spend my college years.

    I chose IU because it has everything I wanted in a school. It is big, has a BEAUTIFUL campus, friendly people, and so much to do from Big 10 sporting events to great shopping and restaurants downtown. Coming to IU was the best choice I've ever made and I am very sad to be graduating this year!
