“We want all students and families to discover that an Indiana private college education is within reach in terms of affordability,” says David W. Wantz, president & CEO of the Independent Colleges of Indiana (ICI). “In addition to federal and state grants, including the 21st Century Scholarship, ICI colleges and universities make millions of scholarship dollars from their own funds available to students, making a top-flight college degree a dream come true for tens of thousands of students.”

According to Independent Colleges of Indiana (ICI), the organization hosting the weeklong event, Indiana’s private colleges are the “smart choice” because:

  • Availability of financial aid: More than 90 percent 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.

Visitors between the ages of 16 and 20 touring ICI campuses during Private College will have the chance to enter a drawing for a Microsoft Surface or Apple iPad mini tablet. Entry forms and rules will be available at each campus.
