3 College Student

Greek Life: I have not yet attended this school

3 College Student

Athletics: I have not yet attended this school

3 College Student

Overall Experience: I have not yet attended this college

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The quality of the courses vary. Some courses are very difficult and challenging others are a joke. Some are taught by graduate students which I think is ridiculous considering the amount of money we are paying to take the class. Some professors are easy to work with and others are difficult and terrible. It is a melting pot of professors and I have had both good and bad experiences. I think there are interesting courses offered the problem is there aren't enough. Many students are unable to take the classes they want or are interested in if they do not sign up right away which is a shame.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There are plenty of internship opportunities. There is a specific area on the ball state site for internships and it is easy to understand and navigate. The alumni network is good. The quality of employers recruiting on campus are pretty good. There is also good quality career center services. They are there to help and they will do anything they can to do so if you come in looking for assistance.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I don't think there is much crime on campus. I feel safe when I am on campus. There are good police services offered.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It costs a lot of money. It depends on what dorm you get whether or not you will have a nice area to live or a bad one. The bathrooms are not up to date and you have to shower in them every day so that is not fun. There are not many amenities. The social atmosphere can be fun if you are exposed to the right people.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is not really a huge deal. It is a small school. But those who are in the greek community think they are all that. Those who are in greek life treat those who are not differently. There is housing available for frats but not for sororities.

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: The sports are not good here. All of the sports are sub par and no one ever makes it really big and goes far. Students are involved in during football season and I'm pretty sure that's only for the tailgating. There is not much school spirit because no one ever wins much. The facilities are well kept up with and they look nice however.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I grew up around this area so I know Muncie Indiana well. I was familiar with the campus and maybe that is why I did not get extremely excited about going here. Overall the educational system is very good and also the campus is clean and inviting.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Teachers are very helpful and will usually work with you if there is something you do not understand.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are many services set up that help students in the career finder setup,

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I generally feel safe on campus unless I'm walking alone really early from the library or something. I've never heard of any incidences.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Housing is expensive as expected but some are significantly better than others. I was lucky enough to live in one of the nicer dorms at the center of campus, which was Woodworth. Even though it's all female, there is a decent social atmosphere. Lafollete is one of the older dorms and is considered one of the worst. It's live able but after living in woodworth, I couldn't be satisfied ever living in lafollete.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I don't know much about the Greeks. They're there but not a huge part of campus unless at parties

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Our teams aren't the best but we usually have a good amount of show ups. Our facilities are really great. The rec center is on the newer side and most if not all dorms have multiple exercise rooms

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The social life as well as academics are very nice.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I always feel safe walking on campus, even at night.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are a wide variety of courses to take and in my experience modt professors want their students to succeed.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The career center on campus is very helpful when you are looking for a job or an interview.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living in the residence halls is a great experience and a great opportunity to meet new people and make new friends.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: The facilities are very nice, but student attendance to sporting events is low.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The University is great, but there are a lot of things you have to pay for that you don't know until you get to school.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Overall courses at ball state i thought were great. Classes that weren't large lecture were usually between 10 and 30 students is awesome, large lecture are good too, but dont allow a lot of individual teaching.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are a lot of opportunities from working in the dining halls to working in the residence halls. all you have to do is look for the opportunities.

Ask a Ball State student, and they'll tell you they're happy to be where they are. Sure, there's Parking Services to deal with, UPD crack-downs, and a ban on kegs, but these drawbacks pale when compared to the friends and memories students say they've acquired at BSU. Although recent policies threaten to end the party-school reputation, Ball State still has a strong social scene that continues to build friendships most students would be unwilling to give up.

Depending on your major, courses can be extremely trying. Be prepared for some late nights—especially if you're interested in architecture, nursing, or journalism as a major. Whatever your field of study, it is important to focus and remember what you're here for.
