The learning environment at Vincennes University is comfortable for students whether they are traditional, college age, or older students returning to college after other life experiences.

One of the interesting projects for organic chemistry students is the making of dyes, such as methyl orange, para red, and indigo. Then as an example of applications for organic chemistry the students make tie-dyed shirts.
