School of Humanities and Social Sciences
Some people see a small campus as a disadvantage, but I think it is one of the best things we have. We’re so personal, and your classes are taught by experts in our field. They’re there to help you, and they want you to succeed.

An Environment of Endless Curiosity

Art students unplug during retreat
Hands covered in dirt, Brittnee Collins flicks open a pocket knife and begins whittling the end of a stick into a sharp point. As rain drizzles on her, she stands back, examining the fortress-like rectangle she’s built in the mud, before jamming the sharpened end of the stick into place. “The story in my head is getting lengthy,” she said, stepping a few steps away to consider her progress.
World War II veterans bring history to life
With only 3 percent of World War II veterans living, opportunities to hear their stories first-hand are becoming rarer each day. Students in an Indiana University Kokomo English class had that exceptional opportunity, as three of those veterans shared their stories, shedding a personal light on their studies of the war.
Alumnae impact quality of life
“Mom.” It’s a simple word, one mothers may take for granted.

Those breakthroughs are what fulfill Jacqueline Schick in her career as a registered behavior technician, working with children with ASD.
