How have the resources in the College of Arts and Sciences helped you?
The Psychological and Brain Sciences department is very helpful, and the advising services are amazing – they help with everything. They are very proactive in helping students, and they’ve been able to provide me with information about careers. My advisors also connected me to faculty in my field.
In general, faculty have a good relationship with students. Even in a large class, some of them try to remember students’ names and help when you have questions.
How has your experience here shaped your perspective?
I got to experience and be exposed to different cultures here. Being an IU student opened up lots of gates for me. IU is diverse – there are people from everywhere, and the people are nice and accepting. I had many different experiences with different cultures and people. As a Psychology student, I have career opportunities and things I’m interested in studying. IU has a lot that you didn’t know you were looking for (like accidentally finding Criminal Justice). Being exposed to that one required course changed my whole future.
Also, the IU and U.S. academic systems allow for movement. The doors are open to you, all you have to do is reach out. If you don’t like what you’re doing, you can change. And by exploring, you can find something you like.
Why should an international student consider coming to IU?
- Lovely campus
- A great faculty
- Opportunities in internships, to interact with professors, and to benefit from departments that are eager to send students to the actual scene of their career interest
Is it possible to sum up your experience here in one sentence?
I can do it in one word: Opportunity.
