What is your overall opinion of this school?

As for my major, I have amazing opportunities for enrichment and learning. The professors are amazing and I feel like I can contact my professors whenever I need to. The atmosphere here is extremely safe and I feel like if I need to walk alone at night to get somewhere, I can get there safely and easily. The campus is full of emergency responders who will be to you very quickly if you hit a button saying you feel unsafe, and cops can even drive or walk you home if you feel unsafe. Everyone is kind and people are very respectful here. All around, this is a great campus with a lot of opportunities and easy to get involved.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I like Ball State very much. The professors usually make sure students understand the content that is being taught. Many often use personal time outside of their office hours to help students that ask. The campus is nice. It is a medium sized campus with a great library and other facilities. The food is pretty good and the staff are friendly.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I'm in love with Ball State! As soon as I went on my first college visit here, I knew this was the place that I needed to be, and I couldn't be happier with my choice. It's a fantastic community where students can easily find friends, clubs, academic advising, tutoring, events, and plenty of amazing opportunities for them to learn and grow. I love my classes, my teachers, the building I live in, the friends I've made, and I'm also in love with our beautiful campus. Ball State will truly be my home for the next four years.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

i think its a pretty great school. at times it feels like a little community. the munciie people are generally pretty nice and the bus system is pretty reliable. also there are plenty of ubers and lifts driving on weekends and weekdays. the parties are usually pretty awesome especially the ones thrown by black sororities and frats.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Ball State. The professors really care about their students and want them to succeed. The students are well-rounded and very easy to get along with. There is a mix of people and different cultural backgrounds so you can always find a home somewhere. That was huge for me. I love it here! I would make the same decision ten-fold over.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Ball State University is a well rounded school with great fields of studies, facilities, and activities so you feel you receive your whole college experience. Though I love my school I do feel that it is evident the school was built by businessmen. They do little things in your college experience to milk money out of their students, who are already paying so much as it is. From there strict parking laws, housing plans, and meal plans, if you do not use you meal for that time of day it is forfeited and you give them money for no reason, they are always sneaking money from your pocket. I love my school and do not regret going there, but there are serious issues with there thirst pursuit for finances. If someone were to go there, have fun and be weary of Ball States financial penalties

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have completed my first year at Ball State and cannot wait to be back on campus. I feel safe there and meet so many new people both in the classroom and out. I have been able to join many different organizations on campus, including College Mentors For Kids. The experience I have had so far is amazing, in my mind nothing can top Ball State.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think Ball State is a decent school. I don't enjoy living away from home but because it is the closest school with my intended major, I had no choice. That said, I haven't been too homesick and I feel very safe here. The food is alright but if you're somewhat of a picky eater like I am, the options can get very repetitive. I plan on living off campus this year, but I lived in Noyer on campus and it was a great residence hall for being one of the cheapest. There wasn't any A/C, but it was located basically in the middle of everything, the rooms were a good size, and there was a dining center on the bottom floor. I've heard Ball State as being hyped up as a party school before but I don't know that I would call it that. I've been to a few parties but they weren't out of control or anything.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Ball State has a BEATIFUL campus, with just the right size everything, class size and more. There are hundreds and hundreds of groups and organizations you can choose to be a part of. No one is alone! The teachers are super willing ron help you one on one and the majority of students there are kind.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall I personally feel that Ball State is a pretty average campus. A bit larger for a mid-major division 1 university but bit smaller for a top premier university, Ball State is a place that some people can excel while its hard for others. Besides academics that campus in itself is somewhat productive. Depending on where you stay dorms promote a variety of activities differently so its like a hit or miss but when clubs and organizations aren't hosting anything the campus is boring. Due to the fact the school is in Muncie its makes it hard to do much off-campus so you have to meet some new friends and hopefully make your own kind of fun.
