I appreciate the close-knit family you have surrounding you at IU Northwest. I definitely feel like you can find your niche at IU Northwest.
Celebrating the Class of 2018
Kenneth Riddle found his niche at tight-knit campus; aims to use degree to better society.
Although Kenneth Riddle, 23, acknowledges more education awaits him, he is excited about starting his career. In whatever position he secures after graduating, he hopes to “have an active role in the betterment of society.”
Riddle says that one of the things he appreciated about IU Northwest was the ability to extend one’s resources and create a truly customized experience. Connecting with people and being vocal about his interests is what led him to opportunities like working for University Information Technology Services (UITS), for instance, and shadowing professionals at the local hospitals.
Embracing the diversity of the student body and getting involved in student organizations was how Riddle found his place at IU Northwest. He serves as president of the Brother 2 Brother college success program, and is a member of the Student Alumni Association, the Criminal Justice Association and the National Society for Leadership and Success.
“It is comforting to learn about people who are like you, but even better to learn from those who are different than you,” Riddle explained. “There are so many diverse cultures here, which leads to great opportunities. You really get to try anything here and you can find a friend who shares that with you.”
