Our last stop in the Indy area was at the sprawling, gorgeous campus of Indiana University – Bloomington.
We had a blast exploring the vast campus and meeting all of the many staffers who make the campus tick.
We also saw quite the party animal… Hank the Giraffe! Hank sits outside the Student Union at IU Bloomington to share the following message: “Play if safe, party animal.” Student can also follow Hank on twitter, #hank@iu
Thanks to all who made our trip so special. Hope to come back for a visit soon. Go Hoosiers!
After Chicago, we headed to Indianapolis, Indiana — the state’s capital. The first stop we made was at Butler University. Although located close to the heart of Indianapolis, the college has a nice grassy campus for its students to stroll.
We learned about the staff’s encouragement of experiential programs for its students, and hope to see some Butler students in NYC this summer!
Here are some of the fun things we learned about too…
Greek Life-ers certainly know how to have fun, even on the rainiest of days, with this seesaw on the lawn of a popular Frat House!
This collection of herbs, located outside of Butler’s School of Health Sciences, is used by students and professors as they study alternative medicine!
Next, we made a stop at another renowned institution: The University of Chicago.
The University of Chicago has a hard-working staff on hand to make sure students have access to a great education as well as gain invaluable internship experience during their college years.
It’s no surprise then that we see many University of Chicago students during the summer while they’re interning in NYC.
There are many interesting sites on the University of Chicago campus — check out a comprehensive list here!
One thing we really enjoyed were Milkshake Wednesdays: A SWEET celebration mid-week for all University of Chicago students!
Thanks so much again to all who took time to show us around. Hope to visit again soon!
Next, we made a stop at the highly creative Columbia College Chicago. The tagline “Create: Change” is carried throughout each of the different academic departments.
This word art, decorating the wall of the Marketing Communication department, keeps that tagline fresh in the minds of visiting students:
Talk about inspirational! We had an all-around great trip; thanks so much again to all who took time to show us around. Hope to see some CCC students this summer in NYC!
Next, we headed west to beautiful Chicago! First, we headed north to charming Evanston, IL to visit Northwestern University.
We met with many amazing staffers there, who do a great job of making sure their students get quality internship experience. We’ve had many Northwestern students stay with EHS before and hope to see more this summer!
Here are some of the cool sites we saw while we were on campus…
Students at Northwestern have fun biking their way around campus:
Northwestern is joining the “farm to table” movement with this outdoor garden. Fresh ingredients that are grown, picked then delivered to the student dining hall for healthy and nutritious dining options!…
Thanks so much to everyone for showing us such a great time. Hope to visit campus again soon!
Next, we visited Robert Morris University (RMU). Not only did we learn how hard the staff works to provide the best resources for its students, but we also learned some interesting history about the school (courtesy of the school’s website):
Robert Morris University was founded in 1921 in downtown Pittsburgh as the Pittsburgh School of Accountancy. The school’s founder, educator and accountant Andrew Blass, rented classroom space in the Blackstone Building. In 1935, the school’s president, Richard Khuen III, changed the name of the institution to the Robert Morris School of Business in honor of the founding father popularly known as the financier of the American revolution.
How about that!
We also learned that students can rock to the beat in between classes thanks to this on-campus entertainment hub — RMU Radio!
Thanks again to all who showed us around. Hope to see some RMU students in our residences this summer!
Next, we ventured east of Pittsburgh to Indiana University of Pennsylvania (IUP), located in Indiana, Pennsylvania.
We had a great time meeting with staff and learning about the wealth of resources they provide to IUP students.
Even though IUP’s NCAA journey ended at the Sweet Sixteen, basketball is never far from the students’ minds! Check out this basketball court nestled in between some dorms:
Thanks so much to everyone who helped make our trip such fun. Hope to be back to visit again soon!
