What Students Are Saying

3.17 Average Rating
Don't let the area scare you! It's a nice school and you get the same degree as IU in Bloomington.
Stephanie from East Chicago, IN
1. Be on time. Its a pet peeve for some teachers when you walk in late
2. Go to class. A lot of people don't go to class and then ask their classmates for notes. This gets quite annoying after a while. Go to class when you can.
3. Make friends. Everything just seems easier after you make friends.
4. If your in trouble or having difficulty with a class. Speak with your teacher. You may be able to work something out.
5. Exhaust all options when buying school supplies, mainly books.
Danielle from Chicago, IL
Contact anyone at the financial aid office about grants, scholarships and financial aid. They are so helpful. Mr. Harold Burtley was the one who helped me.
Juanna from Gary, IN
The school is pretty big, a decent size maybe. I'd suggest the student knows where there classes are because there are multiple buildings. Also another good tip would be is to meet new people. You will meet new people in your classes and other places so it's good. Also when studying or doing homework, it's good to make study groups. Also another tip is to join whatever activities the school may have and whatever best fits your interest.
Perla from Schererville, IN
Be ready to feel at home at IUN. The professors work with the students, and do whatever it takes to help their students be successful.
