Discover what makes the O’Neill School Special

Students talk about their O’Neill and IU experience.

Description of the video:

I chose O’Neill because I’ve always been

really passionate about

advocacy and helping leave the planet a

little bit better than

I found it I chose to come to IU because

I knew I wanted

that Big Ten school feel but O’Neill

cuts it down

into small classroom sizes a small

community of about two thousand students

and I think that's something I’m really

appreciative of

I think that there's a sense of

community within O’Neill

the community is just so open I just had

like this overwhelming feeling of home

and I knew that this was where I was

meant to be it is great that in every

single class I meet

so many people from so many different

places O’Neill is really special because

of the people here

everybody has a lot of passion you go to

all of your classes and you're sitting

next to these people that are just so

passionate about different things and

they just kind of push you to be a

better person

no matter what students are studying

here at O’Neill you can just tell that

they all want to make a difference I

really saw that O’Neill focused on that


of working with people that are in the

private sector the public sector and the


it's a very diverse environment

since it has so many different majors

they have majors that are truly

focused on sort of helping people what

makes O’Neill special

is the support that they give to their

students all the professors that I’ve

gotten to work with have been so

influential they go above and beyond to

provide the students with the resources

they need

they are all so helpful and they want

you to have the best

opportunities and experience that you

can have I’ve had many different staff

members who I could just come to if I

need help

everyone here wants you to succeed and

they're going to figure out how you want

to lead

and find a specific program or a

different mix of organizations and

opportunities for you to get involved in

O’Neill had everything that I wanted

like study abroad doing a full-time

internship in D.C. firm

semester in the civic leaders center not


do students here want to change the

world and make that make a difference

but the school actually teaches you how

to do that

in like a practical way after being in


I’ve discovered new passions and I’m

thankful for that
