Upper School News

Introducing the College and Career Corner
Michaella Beatty | High School & College Counselor

Hello from your friendly neighborhood college counseling team! To kick off 2024, we are excited to introduce this new segment of the bulletin. We believe it is never too early to start thinking about life after EAB. Each week, we will highlight one university we would be happy if our students got accepted to, including noteworthy programs and notable alumni. 

I couldn't think of any other way to start off this section than to highlight my alma mater, Indiana University, located in Bloomington, IN (USA). High on the list of the US News and World Reports list for most beautiful campus, I look back fondly at autumns walking to class. As a psychology student, I researched in the many labs on campus while being an art student and creating art next to an incredible museum. In my senior year, I worked closely with a professor and got my work published, so I think the faculty here are incredible. Located in the Midwest, IU offers a quintessential college experience, as it is home to over 40,000 undergraduate students, has 930+ academic programs, and has over 10% of its population as international students. Students can feel at home rooting for the amazing (depending on the year) basketball team in the research lab or in many of the clubs or volunteer organizations on campus. Students who earn a five or higher on their IB exams can earn up to 8 college credits per course. 

Majors: IU is known for its top-ranked business and music schools. They are home to the world's first school of philanthropy, the nation's first school of informatics, and the country's largest medical school. 

Notable Alumni: Mark Cuban, Elinor Ostram, Laverne Cox, Chris Botti, James Watson, and obviously, Michaella Beatty. 

Fun Fact: The Academy Award-winning movie Breaking Away is based on the Little 500 bicycle race that happens every year at IU.
