The Best Thing About Being a Graduate Student at IUB:
The vast amount of opportunities and resources available within and outside of your department.  I aspire to become a professor and through IU have been able to attend faculty preparation workshops/seminars, develop and teach my own course on the IU campus and receive one on one help with preparing my job application.

Insider tip about living in Bloomington:
It is nice to have a car but it is actually possible to live here and get around town pretty well without one.  The Bloomington Transit system and IU buses can get you practically anywhere in town in about 30 minutes

Contacting students at your prospective graduate program: Any questions off-limits?

A current graduate student in a program you are considering can be your inside guide to what it is like to be in that research group. With them also being your potential colleague, you also do not want to start off on the wrong foot. Questions to avoid asking are gossip questions which include but are not limited to: who “has beef” with who, if someone is single or confirming/denying rumors of their advisor.  Also, remember graduate students are very busy so if there are questions that can be answered via the group website or the schools website, make sure to use these resources first before asking them.
