4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I have heard of a lot of great late night escort services.

5 College Junior

Campus Housing: My personality is not one for the dorms.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: The cost as you near campus is ungodly and completely irrational for a college student.

5 College Junior

Greek Life: My friend is in SAE and it's the ultimate bachelor pad.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: I felt alone in my venture for financial aid.

4 College Junior

Majors: As a vocal performance major, it's thrilling to see all of the opportunities out there provided by Jacobs. Not sure how easy it is to access or be apart of them yet, though (just got admitted).

5 College Junior

Majors: Jacobs is a premiere music school recognized as one of the best in the country. The admission is extremely selective, and rightfully so. If you want to study music at IU, you must be very serious about it.

College Junior

Athletics: I don't really attend the sporting events myself, so I cannot accurately comment.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: There are many different types of people from different place and backgrounds it is hard to say that there is a typical student look, interest, style, and social life.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The campus has a lot of people so health and safety are a problem but I think the campus tries their best it could be better though with the help of the students .

4 College Freshman

Facilities: Some facilities are more modern while others are more traditional. I enjoy the areas made for studying. The campus truly shows that they put there students needs first in every aspect.

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Pretty much everything the school makes rules for is to help students as much as possible. The school policy is made to have a conducive learning atmosphere.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: I personally do not try to get into Greek life however I am aware of them and they have amazing housing located very close to campus.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: From what I have seen in Bloomington it would be a great place to live and work.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Sports are very important on campus. Almost everyone is involved in some way.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Overall living on campus is fun. The people are very nice and I see many different people from different backgrounds. However some dorms are far from the classrooms and everything else (i.e. Southeast Neighborhood). The amenities I love where the lounges available for studying and socializing on each floor and the computer labs available within the building. I enjoy living on campus.

4 College Freshman

Nightlife: The party scene is a positive impact on students that handle it correctly because it allows students to have fun and forget about academics for a while. The party scene allows students to relax after working hard to get good grades.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Indiana University cares about their students. There are many different course offered. Class sizes are sometimes large but I like it.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I.U. helps their students get different job and internships. There are a lot of career services made just for Indiana University students.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There is a wide variety of options. Its unique.

College Freshman

Academics: I have not moved in yet, so I would not be able to provide sufficient data.

5 College Freshman

Academics: Being a music major, the Jacobs School of Music has plenty of opportunities to really shine as an individual. The atmosphere is welcoming and I feel as if I have a voice within the organization.

College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have not moved into the university quite yet, so I would not be able to offer sufficient data.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It seems that the school teaches a strong concept of entrepreneurship and that appeals to me vastly.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: I enjoy the diversity that the campus has to offer. It is such a pleasant change from high school.

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.
