3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There is a great variety of options and most of them deliver and are open late at night. The downside, is that most of this places are overpriced, in my opinion.

2 College Freshman

Administration: Quite hours are not respected at all, sometimes they are not even enforced by the RAs, in addition, there is no control whatsoever regardless of dorm visitations and guests who stay the night over.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: Scholarships require a lot of work, I know I need them, but the chances of actually getting a scholarship (if you don't apply for mutliple) is really low, considering the number of students that apply for the same scholarship.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: There are places like Woodlands where you can actually get whatever you want, which is great. Sadly, not all food courts or c-stores are that way.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus is great because it is closer to all your classes, also you get the chance to meet new people and to form a bigger social group. In addition, it is easier to clean since you only have to clean you own room.

1 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: It seems like there are very few options RPS gives for helping you find off campus housing, if any.

5 College Sophomore

Party Scene: There are so many different types of people you can meet at the parties, it definitely helped as a stress reliever.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: I think the cost is a little pricey, especially for the places within walking distance.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: I feel that most rules are not enforced strongly.

2 College Sophomore

Scholarships: For me, it was very difficult to get in touch with financial aid in the beginning of the year. I think it was mostly due to the high volume of people trying to do the same thing. I don't blame them, I just wish my experience had been better.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: I thought the food options were great at first, unfortunately they started to get a little boring after a few months and there weren't as many options as I thought.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I love living on campus. Indiana University has the most flowers and tree's out of any campus I have ever seen. The people are so kind and generous, not at all how I expected. I am so happy I decided to live on campus for a year, I met amazing people, participated in so many social events, joined a club, and joined a study group.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: School wants us to stay in dorms. Apartments are significantly cheaper if you shop on your own

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: Any night of the week there's something going on. Thursday through Saturday are the best.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Absolutely fantastic! But obviously more expensive than cooking for yourself

4 College Freshman

Administration: Not much to complain about. Except for parking. A $50 ticket for parking on the line is absurd.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: Not much to say on the topic

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Forest is great, just wish they would invest money in other facilities as well

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Hit or miss. You get what you pay for

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Yes. Screw living on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: There is nothing for white women. You either have to be black or hispanic to receive any help.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: So many things to do and see!

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There are so many options and there is such a huge price range, and the option of splitting the cost with house mates is a great factor. There is also always a quick, easy, and reliable mode of public transportation available for those who live further away from campus.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The off-campus food services are amazing. There are a ton right next to the university. They are so considerate of the fact that we are a bunch of broke college kids too! Some places even offer the option of using campus access, an account that is linked to your ID card that you can put money on.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: There is always multiple parties to be found on campus. You could walk down the street and find a random house party and just walk in. There are always so many people to meet.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
