IU Bloomington offers the advantages of a major research university in an atmosphere of personal attention.
This advising and support takes many forms: tutors helping students with writing and math classes, academic advisors meeting periodically with students to discuss their academic paths, and faculty and alumni mentors offering insight into students' interests and career goals.
Most freshmen, international students, and transfer students begin their studies in University Division (UD), where expert advisors provide one-on-one counseling to help students confirm or choose their majors, plan which courses to take, and connect with other campus resources. After students certify into their majors, they are assigned advisors in their departments of interest.
