Event Description

June 5, 2014 Updated Jun 5, 2014 at 10:40 AM EDT

Private College Week is a chance for you and your family to check out what Indiana Private Colleges have to offer. From Monday, July 21, through Friday, July 25, Indiana’s 31 non-profit independent colleges and universities are inviting students and parents to come experience their campuses through free tours and informational sessions.

Visiting a campus can be an instrumental part of making your college decision. Campus visits can provide information and experiences that cannot be gotten through websites, brochures, or other sources. This is a great opportunity to see what each of our unique campuses has to offer!

View a complete list of participating campuses at icindiana.org, as well as information about the tour and event schedules at each school. There is no need to register with ICI; simply contact individual admissions departments to set up visits. Now is a great time to start selecting the campuses you want to visit, put your tour schedule together, and find out how to let the campuses know you are coming. Links to driving directions, campus maps, event schedules, admissions officers and other helpful information can be found on campus websites.

Just a few of the many reasons Indiana’s private colleges are the “smart choice”:
--Availability of Financial Aid: More than 90% of students at Indiana's private colleges receive one or more types of financial aid (state, federal, institutional aid, and/or special scholarships), making a private college education affordable and often no more expensive (and sometimes even less so) than a state university.

--Personal Attention: Class size at Indiana’s private colleges and universities averages 14 students to one professor, and graduates are more likely to report that they are “highly satisfied” with the quality of their education.

--Opportunities for Leadership: With smaller and more personal learning environments, there are more opportunities for students to be involved in extracurricular activities of all sorts, further developing their leadership skills.

--Higher Graduation Rates: Students at Indiana’s private, non-profit campuses are twice as likely to graduate in four years as students at other types of institutions.
