If you are a rising senior, you are probably getting ready to fill out those college applications this fall. Choosing the list of schools you will be applying to is hard enough, since there are about 3,978 schools in the U.S.! There are also several factors to consider; a two-year college vs. a four-year college, a public school vs. a private school, whether you want to be as close to home or as far from home as possible.
Then once you are admitted, the really tough decision will come; Where will you choose to spend the next four years of your life?
Although it is nice to talk about this with parents, high school counselors, or with us Admissions Counselors, many students always appreciate learning about the schools they are interested in, directly from current undergrads. That is why you'll be glad to hear that our Summer Representatives will be coming to visit you soon!
The office of Admissions has hired seven amazing students to travel within the areas surrounding their hometowns and bring UIndy to YOU. The Summer Reps are all upperclassmen (two of them just graduated on May 4th, 2013) who not only have more than a year's worth of experience as undergrads under their belts, but are also very involved on campus, and can tell you anything about student life, activities, academics, and what it's like to be a Greyhound.
Maybe you have already done some research about the University of Indianapolis. You have learned that we are a small, private university, in a city that is known for being the amateur sports capital of the world. Or you have heard that many students choose UIndy because of our focus on personal attention and classroom instruction, or the many opportunities for internships through our academic programs and in the city. To get the student perspective, I highly encourage you to talk to one of our summer representatives. They will be meeting with students like you from May 28th through July 26th. If you are a resident of Indiana, you can schedule an in-person meeting with your local Summer Rep. If you are an out-of-state student, you can talk to one by phone or email. Make sure to ask your Rep. about our Gas Mileage Reimbursement if you are interested in scheduling a campus visit this summer!
