The best part of Ball State is the people. You get to know a lot of new people and the classes are small enough so you feel like you are still in high school but you have the freedom of being away from home. Everything you need is on campus somewhere, it is just a matter of paying for it. If you are a partier, there are parties every weekend off campus to go to. The library is the best place to study and there is wireless internet everywhere on campus. Great food in the dining courts!

Stating the obvious, the campus is absolutely gorgeous and Ball State is constantly at efforts to make sure the campus contains its new aged look. Although Ball State can be considered a larger school, the campus aslways feels at home. Besides having countless activites that allow students to get involved, and the comfortable living the university provides, my favorite thing about Ball State is the outstanding education it offers. The proffesors are always willing to help in any way they can, and if a student is still having trouble, there is always the learning center and other resources to use.

I don't necessarily brag about it, but I do say wonderful things about it. When my family or friends ask me how school is going I can always tell them that my classes are going well and I still love being here after 3 years.

Emily

My favorite thing about Ball State University is the Honors College program. I am in the Honors College, and I actually prefer my Honors classes over my General Education classes because they taylor to a different type of learning style. Instead of expecting students to memorize and regurgitate information, the Honors college professors encourage students to analyze, criticize, and discuss what they teach.

KyLeigh

When I find myself discussing Ball State University with others, I find myself "bragging" aboutt the amazing faculty and staff of the Honors College. The professors are exceedingly involved and invested in the wellbeing of their students. This is displayed through their engaging choice of cirriculum, their willingness to help students, and the open nature of the class. The Honors College strives to provide a well-rounded education, and I truly believe that the courses I've taken through the Honors College will allow me to become a better doctor, as well as human being.

Breona

When ever I describe Ball State I make a point of talking about the numerous majors ofered. Many students come to college with an idea of what major they would like to recieve their degree in, but many change their minds. So, when I tell y friends about Ball State I make sure that they realize how many options they have so that, if they were to change their major, they would not have to worry about changing their university as well.

Breanna

I personally brag about how great the nursing program is. I am in the nursing program and realize truly how tough it is. The only thing I can say is it will be worth it in the end.

Breonna

Wat i brag about most is our football team and how often I am able to come home. I have never attended a school where the football team was undefeated. I'm not far from home so whenvere I feel the need to get away or just would like to see my family, I can hop right on the highway.

Brian

I brag about this school how students are really involved with campus. I also brag about David Letterman coming to school here and saying you dont have to be an A student to make something out of your life.

I think the best part about this campus is the aize because we have a lot of students on campus so you are always meeting new people but the campus itself is not too large as to where it takes half an hour to walk from one end to the other. Also, our social atmosphere is amazing.

I tell my friends that Ball State University has given me wonderful and valuable experiences that I will always be thankful for. I tell them how I don't regret the experiences from my initial telecommunications major because they helped me realize early on that I wasn't cut out for a job in that field. The experiences from my English education major have inspired me to become a great educator and positively influence my students just as my professors here at Ball State University have influenced me to make the most of my abilities and talents.

katie

The size is just right its easy to walk from class to class. The longest it takes to get from one side of the campus to another is only 15 minutes.
