2 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Eagle Village are the closest apartments to campus as they are within walking distance. They are super overpriced and it's such a hassle because they are terrible with communication. The upside though is having your own room, being able to have alcohol if you are old enough and a washer, dryer, and dishwasher in each apartment. BUT IT IS NOT WORTH IT. On paper it seems so nice but I have lived there and many people who I know that also have lived there agree that they should have chosen somewhere else to live. As far as other off campus living, gas prices and traffic are a big deterrent but quality of housing and prices seem to be better

Campus Housing: Living on campus is great! The apartments have a better social atmosphere than the dorms. I felt very comfortable being outside with my friends and meeting new people. Simply stepping outside your can get you new friends. Literally. If you live upstairs having a balcony is the best to just sit outside and talk to strangers who drive or walk by. Once I moved off campus I was pretty lonely and people didn't really talk if they didn't already know each other. Also living in the apartments is good for food and fun because the C-store is smack dab in the middle. It has food, laundry, groceries, basketball and volleyball courts, and a help desk. It is a pretty long walk from the dorms though. I can't speak for the atmosphere in the dorms however because I've never lived in them. But I would guess that people from differnt dorms don't really interact "on a whim" since dorms are indoors and the apartments are mostly outdoor.

Nightlife: IU and ISU tend to attract more people as far as parties go. It can take away from the nightlife in town but it can still be fun if you have the right connections. The apartments near campus (Eagle Village) has regular parties but they get busted or have noise complaints made a lot. Other party places in town can be found if you have the right friends. But it's sad to say that much can be missed if you aren't really "in the loop". However bars are always an option if you're old enough. Underaged drinking is bound to happen everywhere, but at times younger students take it a little too far. Possibly too much freedom too soon. I'm not sure.

4 College Senior

Diversity: There is a pretty good mix of different types of people. A lot of international students, plenty of differnt race types, political groups, and sexual orientations. And the people are fairly accepting. A few times religious protesters who explicitly stated that we are all going to hell have come to our campus and the students handled the negativity pretty well.

Academics: Biology majors don't usually write too many papers. Instead we have regular labs and lab reports, sometimes on a weekly basis. Tutors for all subjects are available. Hours put forth for classes can be a bit much. Simple memorizations won't get you by. In addition to the usual core classes, some math and chemistry is also required.

Academics: Registration can be frustrating as it would likely be at most schools. As a transfer I require overrides everytime that I do registration which delays the process and affects my chances of getting into the sections that I want/need. The work load can be a bit much at times. But time management and careful planning helps ease the blows. Study rooms in the library go quickly, especially when only 1 or 2 people take up an entire room. However, computers and printers almost always available. There are a lot of non-study room tables too. And many buildings have their own computer labs with printers so the library isn't the only option. There is a Starbucks located in the library too.

Overall Experience: Depending on your program or major there can be many opportunities for internships and future jobs. Pre-professionals tend to receive the most attention. Secondly, education majors. Thirdly, I would say sports management/physical training.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: Class size tapers down as you take higher level courses. Scheduling can be difficult for courses like those because they are typically only available at one time and can conflict with other required courses. Professors are typically easy to contact and have a nice presence. I have only had one bad experience in the two years I have attended.

2 College Senior

Scholarships: The school only provides aid to: incoming freshman, those in a limited number of programs, and transfer students from Illinois and Kentucky. I am a transfer student but I live in the state and did not attend straight from high school so I recieve no help from the school besides work study which is technically government money not school funds.

Campus Dining: As far as late night dining there is really only one option. And for those living in the dorms it is a pretty far walk since the shuttle is no longer running. Food is very expensive which is annoying. If you don't have a meal plan or flex dollars it's pretty pricey to even buy snacks. However those who have meal plans/flex dollars are given a percent of what they spend back which is nice. There is a pretty good variety but some places on campus have odd hours such as closing at 1pm.

4 College Senior

Guys & Girls: The people are very nice in general but there Are always some who aren't the most friendly

College Senior

Majors: I'm not in a program.

3 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: I feel safe on campus even when I'm alone but many people wish the city had a bit more to offer as far as night life and other fun things to do

3 College Senior

Athletics: Not very many people attend unless it's mens sports, women's volleyball or there is some type of incentive such as tshirts, school card money, free food etc

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love my school. there are some things I would change like dining, but I have got involved in some awesome organizations, and I love my classes and professors.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: It could get better, but there are some good places to eat on campus, but they are not very healthy.

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: I love the town by my college. There are always things to do, and everything is within a close proximity.

College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I have never looked for off campus housing, so my rating would not be helpful.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: They are really nice people, and they have some special housing, but for the most part, I don't know much about them.

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: Some of the RA's need to crack down on certain activities, but for the most part, everyone does what they are supposed to do. Half of the professors take attendance, the others don't care.

3 College Junior

Diversity: There are times when the Christians are discriminated against. My college is very liberal, so for the most part everything is accepted.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: There will always be crime. There is some drug activity going on, and there are some unlit places that are scary to go, but security is always available, and that makes me feel safe. Security is also available to drive us anywhere on campus if we don't feel safe.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: At my school, there are a lot of international students, so ethnic diversity is huge among the student population. Mostly everyone is nice, but there are always those people who aren't. Overall, we are friendly.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: I did not get enough scholarships to cover all of my tuition, but the school is very low cost, so with student loans and my parents helping my out I can cover my expenses.
