The Best Thing About Being a Graduate Student at IUB:
The social support. The Graduate and Professional Student Organization is always hosting events for students to kick back or support to help them through their semester. Many departments also have their own student organizations that can help you find your niche here. The friendly grad community at IUB was a huge draw when I was applying to schools. And we have fantastic library resources! Some of the best in the nation!
Insider tip about living in Bloomington:
Bloomington itself always has something going on – like the Lotus World Music Festival in October (volunteer and you get free tickets!). But if you need to get a way for a while, there are beautiful hikes and outdoor activities within easy driving distance – like Brown County State Park (beautiful leaves in the fall) and Sugar Creek (canoeing and tubing along a lovely lazy river).
