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.

Fatima Ayala

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.

Isaac Lane

I was born and raised here in Vincennes, Indiana. I chose VU because I had the chance to further my baseball career all while taking classes to help get into the nursing program. It also allowed me to stay at home, saving me a lot of money.

Marley Elder

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.
