Discover What Makes O’Neill Special
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 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 interdisciplinary
of working with people that are in the private
sector, the public sector, and the nonprofit.
It's a very diverse environment, since
it has so many different majors.
They have majors that are truly
focused on 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 DC for a semester,
and the Civic Leaders Center.
Not only do students here want to change
the world and make a difference,
but the school actually teaches you how to
do that in a practical way.
After being in O’Neill I've discovered new
passions and I'm thankful for that.
