Why IU

“Both my parents - John P. Eady ‘01 and Stephanie R. Eady ‘94 -, my uncle Dr. Marvin Eady Jr. ‘85; ‘89, my aunt Trista R. Eady ‘94, and my older sister Aaryn Eady ‘16 attended Indiana University Bloomington so it runs in our family. I was very familiar with the campus, the city, and the community, and it wasn’t too far away from home; it just felt like the right fit!”

How 21st Century Has Helped You Succeed

“Aside from assisting me financially and making my college degree possible, the IU 21st Century Scholars Program has been very supportive and encouraging of my endeavors as a student through their academic programs and services. They go above and beyond to ensure that I am successful. I am truly honored to be an IU 21st Century Scholar at Indiana University Bloomington.”

Future Goals After IU

“After graduating, I hope to pursue a career in broadcast news reporting and anchor on-air. I hope to launch my career reporting hard news, and also pursue entertainment news reporting as well.”
