Meet our students
My experience has been incredible. I have a good teacher. She is a very kind, understanding, and friendly person. My colleagues are very generous. I have met more students who have helped me practice my English.
VU opened up possibilities for things I didn't even know about when I first started playing the piano. Joining the Blues Ensemble and Christian Campus Fellowship at VU allowed me to show the world who I am.
I had a choice to go straight into the workforce or transfer to another school, but I stayed because I like the teachers. I feel like I’m learning a lot compared to other schools. The community is great. I’ve made lots of friends here. It’s just a nice, quiet, friendly community.
I chose Vincennes University because I grew up in the town, and I wanted to stay close to home, plus it was affordable, which is the best.
Studying at VU has helped me prepare and cultivate my confidence, essential skills, and knowledge, and now I am ready for my new journey at Arizona State University this coming fall.
