Health & Safety: I have never felt unsafe on campus or walking on areas surrounding campus. There are plenty of blue emergency lights around campus and campus police are always patrolling campus day and night. There is no reason to not feel safe!

Overall Experience: The class ratio for my classes is great, coming from a small school I was nervous at first but the class sizes are a great ratio. The professors really get to know their students and help them to succeed.

Overall Experience: For my major and many others there are many opportunities to get involved with the major and learn about it. After becoming involved there are many internships/other opportunities that become open once you become involved.

Campus Housing: I enjoy living on campus. I live in the Studebaker West dorm and I love it. The air conditioning is great for in the summer time and the people on my floor are so nice! The process for housing was quick and easy. Perks of living on the top floor is an awesome view too!

4 College Freshman

Athletics: For myself I have not attended many sporting events, but they are heard about everywhere and the campus does so much to encourage students to attend and cheer on the teams. For example, some of the freshman class was able to go out on to the field for the first home game and make a tunnel for the players to run through. I was apart of that and it was so neat!

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love attending Ball State University. Everyone is so helpful, kind, and understanding. For me Ball State felt like home; it is a pretty big campus but it doesn't feel huge. I really love the close and professional relationships you can have with faculty members and you never feel like you are asking a stupid question. When I am in a class room I really do feel like it is education redefined by all the ways the information is explained and the extra miles everyone takes to do their best to make sure everyone is able to succeed greatly.

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I live in the oldest, furthest housing complex on campus and do not get along well with the majority of girls on my floor so I am a bit bias but I am excited to move out with a new roommate into a more updated hall next year!

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Even if our teams are not doing well there is a huge support for them and many people love to get involved or just go to the games.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Absolutely fantastic! Classes are fun an interesting. Ive made some amazing friends. There is always something to do, always somewhere to go. I was easily able to get a job on campus and there are many dining options

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: We have several programs on sexual assault. They also teached about it in the classes I had.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love Ball state, its the best choice that I made. I think that I would fix a few things, but it is worth it going here.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: People love to party here, but they are ready to work hard. It is really easy to go to the career center. There is a lot of helpful opportunities.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It is really beneficial to live on campus! There is proximity to houses and the hall stay really clean. You can get a chance to meet some really amazing people.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
