#RedWolfNation is...

"Amazing!! I have had so many amazing opportunities here on campus. I've made so many friends in the past couple of weeks."


"My career goal is to be a kindergarten teacher. I've always wanted to be a teacher ever since I was little. I had multiple teachers who pushed me to do my very best and I hope one day I can do that for others in the classroom."

Message for my Richmond High School 😈 self

"IIwould tell my high school self to not stress so much on what everyone is making college out to be. In high school, I was so stressed about college professors being so mean and not being able to make any friends. Once I came to IU East, I learned that all of that was all false. All of my professors are so willing to help me make sure I pass my classes, and I have made a ton of new friends here on campus."

Biggest Surprise about IU East

"Even though IU East is a smaller campus, it offers a ton of programs and opportunities for us students to get involved in. I wasn't too sure on which college I wanted to go to but I am so glad I picked #RedWolfNation!!"
