Picture yourself at IU Northwest
At IU Northwest, nothing is more than a five-minute walk away—and the people you see are likely to be familiar faces. This compact, 43-acre campus is a safe haven of spacious green lawns and a mix of traditional classroom buildings and ultramodern facilities, tucked away on the south side of Gary, just 30 miles from Chicago. It’s a place where you’ll quickly learn your way around, get to know other students, and be on a first-name basis with your professors.
On campus, student life thrives with a diverse student body, more than 70 student organizations, and 12 varsity NAIA sports teams. Off campus, students participate in more than 200,000 service-learning hours per year, gaining practical experience in real-world workplaces and professional settings that address community needs.

I would never have expected to become President of the Student Government. I thought it would be so much effort to get involved in something, but I just decided to join one thing, and it developed from there. Because IUN is smaller, it felt really approachable, and it’s been a really positive experience.
