What is your overall opinion of this school?

Ball State is a unique experience involving multiple aspects of life. Whatever you can think of Ball State has it. No opportunity goes wasted here. There are multiple hands on facilities that allow you to feel as if you're actually in the field which benefits the student in the long run.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really enjoy going to Ball State. I’ve met three really good friends, that I’ve managed to keep in contact over the summer. The teachers I had were great and super helpful. I do wish there was a class that helped you pick a career if you go into the school as an undecided major but the advising staff are amazing and help whenever they can.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Ball State is an amazing university with plenty of things to do and ways to get involved. I'm originally from Michigan and I still feel like I'm at home on campus. Many smiling faces and people eager and willing to help. Academically, Ball State is wonderful and if you ever have a question there is either a professor, classmate, or study group willing to help. Tutoring is also major here, there is literally always someone who can help with any subject you find yourself struggling with.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion of Ball State University is that it is possibly one of the most welcoming campuses around Indiana. The students are lively, creative, and are always willing to put forth their best effort and leave little room for the inability to do so. Clubs and other organizations are rather large and incredibly easy to get involved with. In complete honesty, Ball State is like a second-home to most students. There is love, laughter, and a vast majority of other wonderful things.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, it's a nice enough campus with caring professors. While the city of Muncie is not overly friendly towards students, there's plenty of stuff on campus that students can enjoy. If you're interested in Journalism or other News related majors, this is the right place.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Ball State University is a school with a lot of diverse opportunities, both in and out of the classroom. I have found no end to the amount of clubs and student organizations to get involved in. I work in housing, and honestly we have a great housing and residence life community. You can live with people in your same major, which is really beneficial. The professors are generally always available and open to helping you- I have had several professors give me higher course grades than I likely deserved simply because I showed up to office hours a few times. There are lots of things to do around campus: I love to go to Friday Night Film-works, where they show newer movies that were just taken out of theaters, I regularly visit the planetarium (the biggest in the state and one of the most advanced ones in the country!), and there is always a Saturday "late nite" event to attend. All of these things are free and you can go again and again and never be bored. There is also the art museum, Christy woods, and nearby orchid greenhouse. You will not get bored at Ball State, even though it is in the middle of nowhere. You will learn to love Charlie Cardinal, Benny, and Frog Baby, and by the end of your senior year you will have hopefully high-fived Happy Friday Guy in the Atrium. I love Ball State, because even though it is big, I will always recognize someone as I walk across campus. It is a friendly community full of bright, talented students. I hope you decide to come! #chirpchirp!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

This university is very diverse and respectful and accepting of people’s differences whether it be culturally, visually, etc. Ball State is a very good at making your college experience fun while making education just as important. I am proud to say that I am a part of such a caring, learning, supportive school!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall review is that Ball State is a great school. There are always things to do on or around campus which makes for an interesting evening or weekend. If you have a hobby or passion you aren't pursuing as a career, there probably is a club for it. Greek life is very involved in service projects and in the people around them. I originally fell in love with Ball States amazing music school and was in it for a short time, but realized I wanted a different career. Ball State has been a great home to me and I have found happiness and freedom there, where I use to feel very trapped in my hometown. I wouldn't want to be at any other school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

All in all a good school if you’re already in the area. I came from the Pacific Northwest and would stay closer to home if I could do it all over again. Professors are hit and miss. I’ve had some who inspired me and taught me a lot. I also had a biology professor (it was a biology for educators class) who told us that human zygotes were haploid cells and accused the class of being racist when complaints were made against her.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion of Ball State was good, but it is not my favorite college that I have visited. I'm looking for more of a christian environment, and I do not believe Ball state has what I am looking for. I did not have the best tour and that was a problem between my school and Ball State, because it was a school trip with all the juniors.
