Meet an admitted student

Will Bickel

Major: Media Arts and Sciences with a specialization in 3D Graphics and Animation

Career goal: I hope to be a storyboard artist or animator for movies or games

Starting college: What are you excited about and what are you nervous about?

I’m very excited to be a part of the School of Informatics and Computing at IUPUI, though I am a bit nervous about living on my own for the first time.

More about Will: I live in Speedway, Indiana, and went to Speedway Senior High School. Outside of school I spent my time acting in the theater department, biking local trails, and drawing. I’m proud to say that I was the first admit to IUPUI for the Fall 2020 semester, as well as a Bepko Scholar.

I chose SoIC for the wide variety of specializations and the passionate faculty.
