Ball State has a dorm that is especially for nursing students. I really liked this because if I need help with some homework or if I want to get a study group together it isn't hard because we all live in the same dorm. Having all of us live together and having us in the same classes is really nice.

Ball State is a medium-sized school on a smallish campus, with many excellent specialized programs, interesting students, and great professors. Ball State's motto is "Education Redefined," and they live up to it with several customized majors and an innovative "immersive learning" curriculum that involves students in their own education. It hosts a huge amount of clubs focusing on promoting beliefs, educating about culture, exploring art, media, and a variety of activities, and often participating in volunteer work. Campus life is excellent, owing to award-winning Residence Life and Campus Dining programs and the dedicated University Programing Board. The university ties this all together with a large, informative website, campus-wide wifi, and a centralized email for every student.

Ball State University is an open campus. It is gorgeous here, all the nature and animals is amazing. Most college campuses that I have seen are in the city with all the businesses n hustle n bustle, or out in the middle of nowhere with cornfields. Ball State is right in the middle, it isn't too busy, nor too 'empty'. Also Ball State is the must handi-cap friendly campus in the state. Any where in which a person in a wheelchair, or blind needs to go, there is something or someone to help them get there.

Kimberly

Ball State is so unique because of the traditions that the school carries and the strong history of thse traditions also make them all the more fun to take part in. Also the size of the school is just right. It isn't too big where you feel like you get lost in the crowd and it isn't too small that you feel there is no place for you. There is something for every type of person.

My school works very closely with the public school system in its surrounding area and has a very close relationship with the community here. Ball State does a phenomenal job of reaching out to the community and making an impact on the children and families here.

Jonathan

The campus is comprised of classroom buildings, dorms, music and theatre auditorium, sports facility, library, food and eating areas, and parking lots all situated down one main street through the center of campus with a clock/bell tower right in the center. The crosswalks have bells to press when you need to cross the intersection and loud ringing stops all the cars from continuing and the pedestrians are allowed to cross. There are various statues centered throughout the campus that have significance to the school based on interesting stories and legends. The Ball cannaing jar brothers founded the school.

Ball State is unique in many different ways. When looking for a college I looked for a school that was in Indiana, relatively inexpensive, and diverse. I have always grown up around a pluthera of different ethnic groups and religions and I feel that having this sort of community around you enables you to have an open-minded way of life. Once I found Ball State, with it's beautiful campus and dinamic student body I knew where I was going to be going for the next four years.

Lawrence

I think it's the fact that it's not as big as many colleges which allows people to get where they want to be a lot quicker than most people on other campuses. I also believe that since our school isn't so huge, it allows the faculty to be more available to students for help a lot more often so that the students can excel and get in touch with someone if a problem arises.

Jonathan

This school has a lot of people attending it, but you would never know. I was worried to come here because of the size, but when I got on campus, it felt like a small school. You don't get that from a lot of universities.

Dominic

Ball State offers the best of both worlds in terms of a small school and a large university. Class sizes are moderate and the campus is not too big. Students can feel comfortable with classmates and getting around the campus, much like at a small college. Yet at the same time Ball State is a Div 1 school, and there are enough people, opportunities and culture that you are still able to enjoy all the perks of a large university.

The main thing that allowed me to choose my school was the location and the size. I think the one thing that makes it different from other schools is the size.

With its large size it still does a great job at getting students involved in all areas of campus from school events and sports to community service.

The people tend to relate to each other well. There are lots of Christians and the Campus Crusade for Christ organization on campus is very big. The residence life is extremely active and fun. On-campus activities and events are fun and offer an alternative to drinking on the weekends. Students are extremely proud of Ball State. People are friendly and enjoy getting to know each other and hanging out with one another instead of just studying all the time. Students are hard-workers. Also, Entrepreneurship, Music, Art, Architecture, and Aquatics are top quality.

Ball State is a school where you can feel comfortable being yourself. People at this school don't really care what kind of background you come from, and are generally accepting of who you are. The size of BSU is perfect for the college setting. A little over 25,000 students and staff total, and an average class size of 30 members. Learning becomes for focused on the students and the professors are always available for appointments, and if by chance they are not available, most will go out of their way to meet the needs of the students.

Lynne

I like that it is far enough away from home that I can stay here, but it is only an hour and a half from home so I can go home if there is an emergency. I also like the fact that BSU is a medium size school. There are a lot of activities to get involved in and you can get from one end of campus to the other in less than fifteen minutes. BSU was the perfect fit for me and my needs. I am a business major and they have one of the best business programs around.

The amount of females to male ratio.

It was alot more comfortable!

Ball State is a very diverse school. I think the diversity makes it better among schools because we are given the opportunity to continuingly meet people who are so very different from ourselves. Not only is it a diverse school it is a school that is very focused on education and our careers beyond college.
