I came to IU Columbus two years ago and the last two years have been the most challenging, stretching, and wonderful - all important parts of growth. Early twenties are delicate years anyway and I feel like my experiences at IU Columbus have maximized my potential for personal and professional development, critical thinking, and decision-making.
