Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2013

Indiana University is currently ranked the best Sports Management program, which was based on where the alumni are now placed in the working world. I was very excited to arrive in Bloomington, and besides the bit of cold weather, the educational experiences have been great. The course schedule is very accommodating to those who work a normal day job, and to those who want to accelerate their degree.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2014

My graduate program has excellent faculty, helpful staff members, and friendly students. Most faculty provide clear lectures and the willingness to answer questions. Furthermore, the workload has usually been reasonable in my classes. Finally, the faculty offer good advice about career strategies in the library field, an area which requires technical skills and flexibility about relocation. The only problem the student will face is in the area of financial assistance. The Stafford loans for graduate students are unsubsidized. In other words, the interest accumulates on those loans while a student is in school. I have not found any other government aid for this program. Furthermore, the scholarships are hard to receive after one enters the first semester in the program. So, a prospective student would be wise to make certain that he has the money for tuition before applying for the program.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

IU has has many pros including cost of living, quality of surrounding area and quality of its programs. The cons include career opportunities, relative smallness of the community, and a booming undergrad party scene. Overall, a great place to go to for a graduate degree.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2015

My program is online. Many of these questions do not apply. The quality of the professors, the education, applicability of the knowledge and the content are all top notch. I am learning what I need to know for application to my job. I would recommend the MSAEd to anyone.

Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2013

Pros. Bloomington University has the resources that any student would need. Accesibility to academic materials in Libraries, online; Faculty outreach; Workshops, Masterclasses, Lectures, Symposiums; Student Diversity. Cons. So far being just my first semester I haven't identified any big flaws. On the contrary I can't wait to see the new facilities finished by next fall!!!

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

The Community Counseling program is definitely good for anyone who wishes to be licensed as a school counselor or a mental health counselor. In order to obtain your license you have to complete 12 additional credits and if you complete 15 additional credits you can earn your EdS as well. Unfortunately, you cannot be licensed with only the Master's degree. There are people in my classes ranging from those who want to apply to the Counseling Psychology program, those who want to be Licensed Mental Health Counselors and those who are getting their master's degree in order to get into the PhD Clinical Psychology program. I love the program due to being taught more clinical skills rather than in a social work program that just teaches to how to network and pull things together. Bloomington is a wonderful city to live in. It is pretty, liberal and there are several transportation options. Financial Aid ends up being what it is anywhere else. You receive some Perkins Loans due to being in the school of ed. Just like any other program you get what you put into it. If you only put a minor degree of effort into the program then that is what you will get out of it. If you put your all into the program you will see all of the benefits of it!

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2014

The Audiology graduate program has a great blend of clinical and research-based instruction. The faculty are very supportive, as well. Since it is one of the only three year Doctor of Audiology programs in the country, however, the workload can be rather intense. Overall, it has been a great experience.
