What is your overall opinion of this school?

Ball State is a great school with a strong academic program and a variety of extracurricular activities. On campus housing is very convenient, and the food is great during the weekdays, but during the weekends a lot of things go out of stock or close completely, and you can be stuck eating the same thing for two days in a row, which can get a little annoying. Campus facilities are nice, handy, and clean. The class size is perfect and the professors are very accommodating and helpful. The frat houses are a little off campus, making for a quiet, respectable atmosphere. Some of the buildings are old, but they're working on renovating and/or rebuilding some of the dorms and are building a new health professions building. All of the faculty are passionate and their dedication is apparent.

Ball state is a beautiful campus with a good atmosphere. The brink allows for a home style feel. Everyone at BSU is so nice and welcoming. My favorite place at Ball State is the park where everyone lays in their hammocks during the day. Ball State is the best college!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love it here. Everyone is so friendly, also holding doors for each other and willing to talk to anyone. The academics here are top rated in the state and are hands on learning which helps me learn so much better. The library is an amazing resource with a coffee shop right inside and four floors with different noise levels. The dorms are home like feeling. I love the size of the campus also, it is perfect!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have attended Ball State University and would like to continue my education. I was impressed with the online program and the ease of use with of the online curriculums. The instructors were thorough and clear. Though I am now a single mom, whom is working two jobs and nights to support my kids. I have a great career but would like to finish my degree with out missing any more time with my small children,

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love it here at Ball State University because of so many reasons. For one the campus is very easy to get around and the professors are super helpful and try to make sure they are available for any help needed. I'm in very competitive classes because my major is pre-nursing. Ball State University was my first choice and I'm very glad I chose this school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Ball State University is a great college campus. Students are very active on and off the school grounds and professors are there for you when you need help or the teacher/ graduate assistants are. Ball State also has activities for students to partake in during the week and on weekends. I do recommend using ratemyprofessor.com for help on when choosing your classes. It helps a lot.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I chose Ball State because it just felt like home. The campus is a great size, I just wish it was easier to get to places off easier. Such as downtown Muncie and the bus system in general. I think freshmen should be taught how to read the bus schedule or told how it works.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Ball State is an amazing school that is incredibly accepting of its students. As with other colleges, there are certain teachers that should not still be here or at least not be teaching the classes they teach, but most of the teachers are outstanding professionals who genuinely wish to help their students. Ball State is a small enough college to where classes are not necessarily large, and no one antagonizes you if you are an introvert who is not drawn to the party scene. In fact, most students that I have encountered do not enjoy going to parties and would rather use the weekend to study, catch up with friends, or go to an event a group on campus is hosting. However, if I must mention one negative thing, political views lean only one way on this campus, and if you don't lean that way, it is best to never voice your opinions. Still, it is a very affordable college and anyone enrolling here will undoubtedly have a good experience.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Ball State University is a very underrated school considering we are known for great programs for multiple majors; telecommunications, nursing, architecture, and teaching. Telecommunications program gets you working with professional equipment by sophomore year. Nursing also gives hands-on experiences. In the architecture program, you'll stay busy​ but also have the opportunity to go on trips. The teaching program allows you to go out and teach actual classes. The campus is beautiful and we are constantly expanding and renovating. The older dorms are in the process of being torn down and replaced with newer ones. The professors that I have had are overall kind, understanding, and always ready to offer assistance. Of course, there will be some that aren't as fun or easy to get along with but that goes for every school.
