Sellersburg - We're taking a bite out of the Big Apple

Remember being a kid and seeing The Wizard of Oz for the first time. That’s what the students at Ivy Tech Community College-Sellersburg will feel like when their art club “Exit 9” travels to the Big Apple, New York City.

The buzz of the city, from subways to limos. The diverse cultures in fashion, art and music. The extreme economic differences in housing, restaurants and transportation. New York City is a melting pot of numerous nationalities from around the world converging inside an exciting city like no other.

For many of our students, it’s a trip of a lifetime, having rarely travelled beyond their local regions. They’ll earn real-world experiences that go beyond the classroom and their own hometowns. Their encounters will provide them with new insights making them more valuable candidates for their future employers.

Help our students take the financial bite out of going to the Big Apple. Your investment in supporting our students will be repaid in dividends beyond Wall Street. It will shape these students into experienced adults, inspired to go beyond our regional boundaries and explore new worlds of design, photography and the arts.
