Tyra Dowell's Amazing Journey

September 18, 2020

Tyra DowellTyra Dowell is a Networks Scholar, accounting major and graduating senior from Illinois.

She chose ISU because of a couple of different situations. She comes from a low-income and low-test scores school and was offered a fee-waiver from Indiana State. When she got here, she loved the fountain, the student helpers, and the atmosphere made her feel like she was home. When she found out that she was accepted into the Networks Professional Development Program, her mom and she were in tears. The thing she is most grateful for when thinking about what ISU has done for her, is receiving and accepting a full time job before her senior year.

Tyra has accepted a full time audit position upon her May 2021 graduation at Deloitte in Indianapolis. She says “I am glad I chose ISU and I am excited to see what the future holds for me”.
