    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 to come to IU for a multitude of reasons, including the more practical reasons like distance and affordability.  But overwhelmingly, I chose IU for the way I felt on campus.  I wasn’t seriously considering IU until my visit, when IU jumped to first place.  I immediately felt comfortable on campus and excited about all the new possibilities that awaited me.

    I looked at several different schools in Indiana, but I chose Indiana University because I had a lot of different interests with no certainty of which avenue I wanted to pursue. IU provided me with the freedom to explore many of my different passions at the same time and I loved the way they embrace “exploratory” students.
