I loved my first year at Indiana University Northwest.

"My first year at IU Northwest was an aspiring year for myself. I learned so much about all the opportunities that were available for me at this university. I did everything I could to seek out all groups, clubs, and organizations and find out more about them. By doing those things I have earned jobs, internships, and made many good friends. I loved my first year at Indiana University Northwest."

Getting involved in campus activities was one of the best decisions I made that first semester.

"Freshman year was the year I met my three best friends.  In a lab class where the teacher started out intimidating and ended a sweetheart, we banded together every morning before class to go over answers and discuss upcoming assignments.  A string of events my first semester at IU Northwest allowed me to meet up with new friends for free food days, fall social events for the campus clubs, and SI sessions where upperclassmen became your guide for the next four years of your life.  Getting involved in campus activities was one of the best decisions I made that first semester."

This will help you to feel comfortable and you will have people that you can talk with to get your questions answered. College can be a lot to deal with at times, but if you have people on campus that you can turn to, it helps greatly.  Getting involved in campus activities was one of the best decisions I made that first semester."
