In deciding to come to Indiana University I knew it was going to be a new experience for me coming from such a small high school back home, but I knew it was the right choice for me because I wanted something different. I wanted to attend a university with countless opportunities to get involved and provide you with a plethora of resources that allow you to stay focused and receive any aid that you may need for any subject. I think college is a time for students to truly gain a sense of who they are in and outside the classroom. It teaches you time management, independence, study habits, and so much more. I recommend any student who is beginning their college search to first weigh all their options, then choose a school that truly fits them as a person and will help them grow into a young adult. Going to a school or university that is the right fit for you is detrimental in your success at that specific school and your overall college experience. It can make or break you. My biggest piece of advice is really do your research and think about what you want to do with your career and base your decision off of that. I know Indiana University is great fit for me because it was a new experience and place for me. Along with that they have a great science department which is truly important to me being a biology major. College is big step in a young persons life and a great experience that everyone who has the means and capabilities should be able to experience.

Bloomington is a great college town and IU is a top academic institution. Basketball is a way of life in Indiana and Tom Crean seems poised to return the program to greatness. I was enrolled in the Kelley School of Business, majoring in Finance and Accounting, and the classroom gave me the foundation for a successful career as a management consultant.
