She was able to finally visit the campus in August while traveling for the Western Southern Open.

One of the main reasons that I chose IU East was because I felt so at home. It was like family, like it was my school, and I was so excited. It's been an incredible journey. I've learned so much. It was always my dream to have a business degree and I ended up going to art school so many times, but in the back of my head I felt like I needed the tools to be a better leader, to be a better planner, to be better at all of the things I wanted to do in my businesses because I'm so hands-on.
