The Best Thing About Being a Graduate Student at IUB:
During my time here at IUB I have taken advantage of opportunities and resources inside and outside of the classroom. From concerts, operas, and ballets to actively participating in student government as the President of the Graduate and Professional Student Organization from 2011-2013 I have found a way to make my experience at Indiana University-Bloomington unique. I encourage everyone to get involved and seize every opportunity!

Insider tip about living in Bloomington:
Bloomington is home to some amazing cuisine and wine, but more importantly it’s home to Bub’s Burgers and Ice Cream. Make sure you get a tasty milkshake and attempt the Big Ugly burger!!!!

Technology on Campus

Using every and all forms of technology is completely acceptable and recommended in grad school. Indiana University makes it easy for people like me to understand new email interfaces, citation management softwares, setting up wireless printing, and more.

  • University Information Technology Services – the technological support and services for the entire university. I have taken classes on Excel and HTML for my graduate assistantships to help me learn new skills and brush up on others. There are various workshops and trainings you can sign up for through the university.
  • After I purchased my pride and joy, bane of my existence, laptop I had to download some appropriate software such as Office for MAC, Adobe, and the wonderful Endnote. These software programs and many more are available through the university.
  • Questions or issues with software, internet logins, pass phrases not working, or email servers giving you trouble…well the campus support center will answer questions by phone, email, in person, and by chat.
  • There is even a place to purchase hardware on campus right in the Indiana Memorial Union and discounted items through IU Surplus.

What I have described here is only a small part of the tech services and support here on campus. I am still learning about new tips and tricks all the time.
