[Zach speaks: As a student, wanting to go into the field of global health, study abroad was really an opportunity I wanted to take advantage of while I was here at IUPUI. The Honors College was really instrumental in that because as soon as I voiced that desire, everybody was willing to help me figure out what programs I should go to, what scholarships I should apply for, and all those kind of academic details and all those things. And ultimately, it led to a great experience that really influenced my career path and really confirmed that not only medicine, but specifically global health, was what I want to basically spend the rest of my life doing.
I think the Honors college provides kind of that very personal support base that regardless of what it is, whether it was the study abroad opportunity, or research, or just figuring out the nitty gritty academic details, the Honors College is right there to help you at any second. I can get on my computer and type a quick email and I, you know, get a quick response, or I can call up someone and say ‘Hey, you know, I’ve got this problem, can you help me?’ And I think that support is really what clinched it for me when I was deciding.]
