Step 1: Learn With Purpose
Congratulations! You’ve been working toward admission to a college or university for many years. You are starting an exciting new phase in your education, and you will want to be prepared to make the most of your time here.
It is not too early to begin the process of broadening your understanding of what higher education has to offer. Indiana University Bloomington (IUB) recognizes the importance of a liberal arts education that will prepare the foundation for a lifetime of continual learning. A liberal arts education will provide you with the knowledge, skills, and perspectives to develop a deeper understanding of yourself and the world around you through a combination of specialized and general study.
If you actively participate in your undergraduate studies and engage with instructors, campus organizations, and peers, you will graduate with more than a degree. You will learn the skills needed to excel in any environment, including your chosen occupations.
