Welcome To The Taste of HU!

What is the Taste of HU?

It is a course fair in which students will be able to visit stations representing courses that we offer as a part of Hobart University (remember, this includes technical training!).

Hobart University consists of 5 schools of education with many pathways. Check out each pathway, or “school,” below and the dual credit/early college courses that are offered in each school. (Keep in mind, early college includes training and certificates that can provide students with the opportunity to work in that field immediately after high school!)

Visit the SCOH Website: for college and career readiness information any time, any place.

HU does NOT just mean college.

Think of it as Hobart University and Technical Training instead. HU is for EVERYONE and has a buffet of choices.

Does a student want to enter the work force immediately after graduation?

No problem.

Does a student want to enter an apprenticeship with a local union after graduation?

We have that too.

Welding? Automotive?

We have that through our partnership with Porter County Career Center!

Does a student plan on attending a university?

Then get the first year free at HU! (English, Speech, History, Psychology, etc.— all dual credit and accepted at public state universities.) In other words, do the pre-requisites at HU for FREE. Do it now for free, or pay later!

Not sure about any of this?

Try it HERE for FREE!

We would rather a student find out he/she doesn’t like the medical field now, when it is free to try, as opposed to later, when it costs money!

HU is a buffet of opportunities.

If a student struggles in school, are there opportunities?

Absolutely. Once students find what they like and are able to spend a good part of their day doing that, they THRIVE.

We are here to partner with students and parents to find a student's passion.

Are you a student who likes hands-on?
Got it.

It’s all here.

If a student excels in school, are there opportunities?

Absolutely. Get a year of college free by taking dual credit.

Get a head start in engineering programs, competitions, opportunities.


The world is at a student's fingertips, and it is all right here at HHS.

We are PROUD OF THIS. We want our students to do what they love!

We want PARENTS to be proud of what is offered at this beautiful high school and university.

We want STUDENTS to be proud of what he/she accomplishes at HHS and what it leads to in his/her future.

And we want EVERYONE to have all of the information about HU at HHS so that we can help students and parents make scheduling decisions.

When is scheduling?

NOW! (Students can still make changes to their schedules for a few weeks, so now is the time to talk about all of these great opportunities. We are talking to them too!)

Ivy Tech Campus Opportunities

Opportunity #1: Medical Assistant

Did you know that your child can become a medical assistant BY THE END OF THE SUMMER AFTER HIS/HER SENIOR YEAR?

Check out the salaries below... your child can make $15.61/hour immediately after completing high school.
Think your child may be interested? Talk to him/her about this! We will have more info about for this for students during Wednesday’s Taste of HU event during the school day.

Great IMMEDIATE career opportunities upon graduation!

Opportunity #2: CNA (Certified Nursing Assistant)

What is the difference between this and Opportunity #1?

A CNA would work more in the hospital setting, whereas a Medical Assistant would work more in a doctor’s office. A Medical Assistant will make a higher hourly wage.

While a CNA may initially make a slightly lower salary, this certification is stackable, meaning the courses would count toward an associate’s or bachelor’s degree later if the student chooses to pursue that.

Of course, any certification can lead a student to a path of more credentials if he/she chooses to do so. Once a student expresses interest in any of these fields and programs, the counselor and Ivy Tech coach can tailor the plan to meet individual student’s needs and interests.

Opportunity #3: Pharmacy Technician
