I use what I learned every day when I work with children and parents as a caseworker for the Indiana Department of Child Services. I want to work with children and make a difference in their lives, and my IU Kokomo degree made that possible.
The School of Humanities and Social Sciences is the center of IU Kokomo's academic and intellectual life, offering many major areas of study as well as general education courses for majors outside of the school.

Two Indiana University Kokomo seniors rank among the top IU undergraduates in research.
Senior psychology majors Alexius Babb and Alexandra Glenn were among those students honored for their research projects at the 19th annual Indiana University Undergraduate Research Conference, which included nearly 80 projects by students from all eight IU campuses.

The Indiana University Kokomo Art Gallery features its first-ever show created by senior fine arts students.
Eight students are showcased in the Fine Arts Thesis Exhibition, which continues through Saturday, May 17, in the Art Gallery.
Susan Skoczen, art gallery director, said five of the students are receiving the Bachelor of Fine Arts (B.F.A.) degree, with two earning the Bachelor of Arts degree. An additional senior, who minored in creative arts, also will have work in the gallery.
Emily Ross wields a red pen with the best of editors. Her skills, demonstrated as editor-in-chief of Indiana University Kokomo's literary and arts magazine, and editing The Correspondent student newspaper, lead her to a prestigious assistantship, one that will pay for her to earn her graduate degree.
Ross, who graduated in May with a degree in English, was chosen through a competitive application process to edit the Journal of Teaching Writing, as she completes a Master of Arts in English at IUPUI.
Emily West lives her dream, serving Indiana University Kokomo as a full-time police officer.
A criminal justice major, she earned a jump-start on her career when she was selected as the campus’ first female cadet in 2013. She graduated from the IU Police Academy in August 2014, while also earning International Police Mountain Bike Association certification. She completed her degree in December 2014, and was immediately hired by the IU Police Department.
