5 College Junior

Campus Housing: Living at the dorms on campus was definitely the best thing I could have done during my freshman and sophomore years. I was able to make friends that I hang out with till this day. I also lived at a great small community my freshman year, so everyone was close and we had a lot of social events.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I always feel very safe on campus, but you sometimes forget it is still part of the real world and really bad things can happen

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: McNutt is where it's at! Party all day every day! :)

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Impossible to get into sororities and not easy to get into parties if not in a sorority.

5 College Freshman

Academics: I am in Kelley, which is incredibly highly ranked.

Academics: The business school cannot be beat. Cutthroat but worth it in the long run

College Freshman

Majors: I have not had any internships or job experiences.

College Freshman

Majors: I am only a freshman, too soon to provide much insight into the program.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: Everyone seems to be very accepting, but big lack of racial diversity.

4 College Freshman

Computers: Have had no problems with the technology or computer labs on campus.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: Automatic academic scholarship is easy, but a very long application process only landed me $2,000 which I will lose due to lack of honor class availability.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There are many trade offs, convenience for quality, price for quality, ect. but over all, many options.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: It is hard to find parties if you aren't in the Greek system.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: The buses are good and most things are within walking distance.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The teams aren't typically that great, but the stadiums are beautiful and there is always something to go to with plenty of fans in attendance.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are tons of restaurants in Bloomington. You name the cuisine, we have it. Just to name a few: Thai, Korean, Chinese, Italian, Mexican, Japanese, Greek, American. There is also a huge range in types of restaurants. We have cafes, lunch places, fast food, order and sit restaurants, fine dining, food trucks, and pizza joints. You have a variety of price ranges to choose from as well. I do wish there were a few more student discounts but there are a lot available discounts that are accessible.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Indiana University's student body has amazing school spirit. We have a ton of support for mainly football and basketball but continued support for other sports like soccer, baseball, volleyball, and more. Greek life encourages its members to get involved with intramurals. Intrumurals are open to the entire student body so that's a great way to mix Greek students and independent students. Our athletic facilities are always busy. There are always special events going on to promote a healthy lifestyle in more than just physical health, but mental health and positive body image as well. I love our athletic centers and I'm there at least twice a week if not more.

5 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Indiana University- Bloomington is one of the most unreal colleges in this country. Bloomington is the best college town. The school spirit is unreal, even from the locals. Being in a place that has such pride in their team is really great.

5 College Freshman

Majors: The process of getting into my program was quite simple. I needed to have a 2.5 GPA and no pass/fail classes except free electives. I didn't encounter any challenges. I would say the most important criteria for admission are the amount of credits you have and the GPA requirement. One tip I would offer is to work hard no matter what!

5 College Freshman

Majors: My major is perfect for me and just what I was looking for. The classes are so interesting, fun, and very enjoyable. One unique aspect of the Human Development and Family Studies program is that you are required to complete an internship before graduation. I think this is unique and extremely helpful because it helps you get out there, working in jobs that have to do with your major.

College Freshman

Nightlife: I don't go to parties.

IU is a well-rounded school, excelling in everything from academics to athletics. The fact that it offers something for almost everyone is the testimony given by the student body; over 40,000 kids from all over the world found IU and have made it their home for four years or more. IU’s campus is an original place in an isolated little town, and while it may be in the middle of nowhere, it doesn’t take long for most students to find something that makes it feel a little more like home.

Most of the complaints about IU involve its large size, and if you’re looking for the kind of school where everybody knows everyone else’s names, this isn’t the right place for you. However, the faculty, staff, and general population of Indiana University all work together to make an otherwise intimidating atmosphere feel a bit more accepting. There are so many opportunities here that your experience at IU is undoubtedly what you make of it. You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to gain admission, you don’t have to be a long-time binge-drinker to have a great social life, and you barely even have to leave your dorm room to make friends. Ultimately, these are just a few of the many positives that make the college experience in Bloomington, Indiana the most memorable and most educational years of your life.
