The Best Thing About Being a Graduate Student at IUB:
For me, it is being a teacher for the first time and helping my students. The experience has been eye-opening and humbling.

Insider tip about living in Bloomington:
About 15 miles west of Bloomington is a small artist colony called Nashville, IN. There are really great gift shops, restaurants, cafes, and one of my favorites, the Big Woods Brewing Company. Also Nashville is surrounded by state parks and forests, which are some of my favorite hiking spots.

My Favorite Thing about IU

I think one of my favorite things about IU is the sheer amount of activities to do in Bloomington!  I have a lot of interests, and I have a pretty adventurous spirit.  I like to try new things, and Bloomington has a lot of great opportunities to explore.  Even better, student discounts and free events are the best!  I just recently went to an Itzhak Perlman (check him out playing Schindler’s List theme) for $20 on a student discount.   Just on one campus, you can experience D1 sports teams, world-renowned musical performances, art exhibits, cultural festivals, indie bands, and much more.  When I need a break from academics, I can pick and choose what types of events I can spend an evening with.

Some great links that I check out from time to time:
