Student & Graduate Reviews

4.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2016

I think the program exposed me to significant opportunities to have real world experience, which is relevant to my degree. The education quality was top notch, but the financial aid capabilities could be improved.
3.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2016

The quality of education I am receiving here is outstanding, the faculty are friendly, available, and nationally known, and the other students are friendly, supportive, and very intelligent. I also like the campus and the town. However, one major detriment is the lack of funding for students here. Even "full funding" packages are not really enough to live on, and most professors and administrators are not very knowledgeable about the feasibility of living on the offered funding, nor the detrimental effect of taking out student loans. Financially, being in school here has been a real struggle, and due to the hugely competitive job market in this field, I cannot be certain whether I will have a job when I graduate. Otherwise, though, I highly recommend this program.

The program really is whatever you make of it. There are amazing professors and researchers here, and you really can learn as much as you desire. Some enjoy the journey and some are more focused on graduating.

Very open and friendly department. Non competitive camaraderie among students here. We work as a team.

Degree: History
Graduation Year: 2016

With the exception of having almost no financial aid to students in the terminal M.A. History programs, IUB is a great school with great professors. The History Graduate Student Association also helps in having a social life and getting accustomed to the town if you're not from Bloomington.
4.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Cultural Studies
Graduation Year: 2015

Overall, I am really happy to be part of IU bloomington. Below are some pros and cons of the program: Cons: -Very few diversity -The weather -Small town vibe (I really enjoy this, but I know that for people who are from big cities, it may be a difficult transition) Pros: -Professors are extremely supportive! -Peers are very helpful (I don't feel like I am competing with them) -Research 1 Institution -Many opportunities to find financial aid -University is trying to increase student diversity through many initiatives. -Lots of things to do on campus (Opera, musicals, cultural events...) -Salsa dancing! :) Overall I encourage everyone to give IU Bloomington a chance. IU has many great opportunities to offer! Do not be afraid to take that leap!

Degree: Public Policy
Graduation Year: 2016

The graduate program is challenging and worth it because it was an eye opener to me, I learnt new things that I was not used to. The instructors were accessible and provided a suitable and conducive platform for learning. My level of thinking changed drastically and this has improved on how I see things and how I can be a solution provider in my own little way.
