What is your overall opinion of this school?

Ball State University has provided me with support where other universities have been lacking. The academic support I receive from professors and academic advisors has proved helpful through the grades I have achieved since starting at BSU. If I ever need help, I can contact my professor or academic advisor and hear back within 24 hours.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Ball State University is a dream come true and better yet. I miss that campus and the people so much. The ratings I gave above are extremely honest. When I say teachers were always available, they pretty much were. I remember working on a group project and we had some questions for our professor and he said that he had some plans for the evening but was willing to FaceTime us later on to help, and he did. It was astounding! I've never seen another professor do as such. The campus is beautiful, the food is great, the students were the most friendly people I have ever met. In the past I've had a hard time making friends. Within my first two days at Ball State I had dozens of friends and our friendships grew tremendously while I was there. For the extracurriculars...there are hundreds of clubs and activities to get involved in, and they're so exciting, it's hard to choose just one. I wasn't huge on partying, but parties did take place off campus and only on the weekends besides the special 100 year anniversary events and no-drugs "Late Nite" extravaganzas (yes, that's how they spelled it). The education was beyond my belief. Being someone who came from a failing school district back home, Indiana was a major leap for me, I was shocked about how hard the classes were and how much smarter everyone else seemed, but I wanted to be like them so I worked harder and met everyone else's pace and got on the Dean's List. I was so inspired, especially by my professors, I really wanted to be like them. The campus? It seems like it's own little town, and even though it's not exactly it's own town, it has so many stores close by, it didn't take long to walk to places like WalMart or grab a shuttle to Aldi. For the sports, I had previously gone to a school that wasn't very involved with sports, so seeing sports facilities everywhere was shocking...the school even has it's own football stadium (I know it might not seem shocking to most, but believe me, it was quite a shock for me)! And most importantly, it was such a safe place to be. I never felt harmed, I never felt like I was in danger. There are emergency call stations all throughout the entire campus and I did not feel bad when I had to walk alone across campus because I had so much trust in my peers and the campus' security. People who go to Ball State are so lucky!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really do love Ball State. It is a really nice campus and just the right size if you are wanting to go to a semi-large school. Ball State offers so many extracurricular activities, anything from fencing to the Greek Life. While Ball State is known for being a party school not everyone parties. The campus and town of Muncie have so many other things you can go to during the week and on the weekends, and within several miles, you can go do things downtown Indianapolis. Professors are really great, and most of the time if you have an hour and fifteen-minute class or longer you normally get out early.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I like it here much better than IUPUI. People are way more outgoing, but you have to find someone to get you "in" to most groups. I have a very hard time finding people that want to spend time with me, and I believe this is because I don't live in the dorms or near campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I Love it and can't wait to attend in the fall. I already have so many friends there and frequently go and visit them or go up to watch the school's theatre productions. I also really enjoy the dorms, especially the Johnson Complex, it's clean and there are always activities going on. But most importantly my parents believe I will be safe and well looked after when I attend.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion of Ball State University is that it is a good school and the classes are good. The professors are great and the campus is easy to understand. The school has great buildings where classes are held. The parking is not that great if you plan to get a parking pass. On the weekends you can park anywhere which is nice. Ball state is a good school that has fun activities for students. We have Friday night movies and late nite which happens late Saturday. Classes are nice sizes even if there are lectures. The bus loops have gotten better. Even though the campus is easy to navigate, it is a bit spread out for some people especially if they live on one end and have to go to the other end.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think Ball State has the potential of being a great school, but there are certain class requirements that make it seem impossible to graduate on time if you mess up on ONE class. It seems like they want you here as long as they can keep you here so that they can have more of your money. Some of the professors are great but there are a lot that make it seem like they do not want you to succeed. Parking services is also the WORST.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think the campus is great. The people are wonderful to be around and there is always something to do. You almost never run out of options. The food is pretty great too. My biggest complaint would be that we have to pay to park on campus which is ridiculous since we pay a lot to be there to begin with

What is your overall opinion of this school?

So far, I am enjoying my time here at Ball State University. There are a lot of immersive programs and opportunities to participate in to prepare you for your future career. Most of the facilities are very nice. The social life is pretty good, if you have a network of friends. One thing that Ball State needs to improve upon is their diversity, but I have heard it is getting better every year. Overall, I would highly recommend Ball State University to anybody!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

BSU has many opportunities for a large variety of interests. If you are looking for a school to pursue a major in the STEM category, I would not recommend BSU due to low funding in this area, but campus life is friendly and enjoyable for everyone. In my opinion, BSU is a good school, especially if you want to go into communications, anything having to do with media, teaching, or nursing.
