    Tell us about studying physics in the USA
    I've really enjoyed my time studying physics here at Indiana Wesleyan University. We are a smaller department relative to the rest on campus, so I've formed stronger relationships with my professors then I would have if I was one of hundreds of students. Lectures and labs are very hands on, and the workload is challenging while also very helpful in learning the topics. Thankfully, due to my families connections with the Wesleyan church, I have several scholarships that keep my tuition down. IWU does, however, supply generous academic scholarships for those who work for it.

    The classes have been decent with the professors that I have encountered. There is a lack of clarity and well-defined structure when it comes to my program though.
