I think it’s a great school, with a lot of opportunities. The class size is really good, and I always feel safe on campus. There are a variety of clubs and activities to be involved in. The campus housing is pretty nice as well. The professors are usually pretty good at communication and most of them seem to care about our education.
Indiana State University Is gorgeous a campus! The dorms are very nice, clean, and new. This campus is one you'll never forget you visited. It seems to be an average size which is a good size for comfort in classes. I feel so confident about study my major here the staff was so nice and friendly.
I think that Indiana State is a great opportunity for students with a lower availability to financial aid. I believe that ISU is fairly priced for the quality of education you will receive. Even if you don’t think you have enough financial aid to start there are always more opportunity’s to get more on campus.
It's really a good school, Staff here really cares and will help you whenever you need it. I'm glad I came here because they offer me something, no other school did. As a freshman they offer me an stars program, that help me so much and help me make time for studying and doing homework. There are so many people that's willing to help you both inside school and outside of school.

If I could go back in time and talk to myself as a high school senior, I would tell myself in order to achieve your goal to be an engineer work hard and study. I would also tell myself that you would have a lot of time in the future to chase girls but right now focus your time in the books. In addition, to my conversation with myself I would say, save all the money you make as well as apply to many different scholarships as you can because you are going to need the money. The books in college are expensive.
There is not much student involvement or excitement.
All of my classmates participate in our online classes.
ISU definitely lives up to it's slogan, "more from day one."
Its not what Ive expected. When I first got here I thought I was somebody special, people made me feel at home, and my classes were good. But when I really needed financial help the people who were helping me made mistakes that lost me 2 scholarships and a grant. And when I tried to fight for them I was fighting for them alone. After fighting for 2 months, I was finally able to get help from this school. All I needed was one phone call but it took 1 month for them to make it.
The kind of person that should attend ISU should like to drink and party because that's all there really is to do here. The school is right next to Wabash Ave., which is home to the WALK a homecoming event that involves binge drinking starting at 4 am going from bar to bar.
Probably a person wanting to be a doctor, lawyer, or engineer, would not attend this school.
I like that it is a smaller school. I can get to anywhere on campus walking in 10 minutes or less. Also the professors are easy to get along with and interact with the students. Indiana State University is also ranked for our community engagement.
Indiana State University is best known for the large about of volunteer hours annually completed by students. It is also known for wonderful professors that know each and every one of their students by first name.
I wish that I knew how much living on campus affects the college experience. Since I have been a resident of Terre Haute all of my life, I decided during my Senior year of high school to live at home. I've realized this year that I missed out on a lot of things by being a commuter students, especially being able to spend time with other students. Sharing life with other college-aged people is exciting and opens the door for opportunities and sharing. I wish that I had known this prior to freshmen year.
Love the new Rec Center, I workout there all the time...
This school has its professor's and falculty ready for class and they engage on each others learning. Every class that I've taken at ISU is based on my degree and sometimes is based on my minor as well.
My overall opinion of Indiana State University is very pleasant. I truly enjoy every little thing about this university. The university has plenty of people to get to know, but not too many where you don't know where to start looking to meet new people/friends. There is a lot of school pride displayed every day and every sport event. There is also very good greek life on and near campus. Many students believe that being part of that is one of the best decisions they have ever made.
The Forest would be the most popular school group at ISU simply because its so student orientated.
Honestly, we probably have at least one of every "stereotype" you could come up with. ISU is the most diverse public college in the state of Indiana! Fortunately I've never heard a specific one except "hautians," which just means that you live in the city of Terre Haute. Sometimes that term is accompanied by a negative connotation.
The class sizes vary, however, majority of class sizes are usually no more than 35 students. The professors get to know, not only your name, but they know about you personally and enjoy knowing about you. Majority of classes include very active participation (not just lectures). My major is Information Technology and when I graduate the university will have already helped me getting a job right as I finish school.
