Indiana University-Bloomington is a beautiful school in a quintessential college town. Because of the school's large size, there are a plethora of different majors, interesting classes, and unique people. However, because of the school's size, sometimes getting personalized needs met could be a challenge. Overall though, if you can find your people, you'll have a great time.
I have loved my time at IU Bloomington. I have a good group of friends, and my classes are engaging and unique to this college. The gym is excellent, and I appreciate that there are plenty of opportunities for part-time jobs for students. Since it is a major public state school, they have a lot of great options for financial aid which help hundreds if not thousands of students including myself be able to afford college without significant debt. However, the party scene is not my preference but may be a great fit for you if you're into that sort of thing.
I like Indiana University and how diverse and large it is. It does get really crazy here especially on the weekends, so it's always good to never go out alone. There are plenty of places outside of campus to do on the weekends. I love how there is a mall just a mile away from campus. The dorms get pretty dirty, especially the bathrooms, the cleaning is terrible. The education here is pretty good though especially for my major which is nursing. I love the sports here and love the access to the gyms here as well.
indiana university is a really good school with an even better campus. theres not a day that goes by that im not grateful for being in bloomington being a hoosier because the feeling it gives you is so good. the people in bloom are one of a kind and the classes are top tier college classes if you imagine.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Indiana University-Bloomington is 78%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
If you even think you might think that you might be interested in a school, apply and research it throughly. Don't only apply to one school, because even if you are accepted and attend, you'll regret the fact that you didn't have choices.
When I sit down in class, I don't only see a room full of students who are high achievers and ambitious people; I see students who will change the world with their bright ideas, passion for knowledge., and never ending quest to do what is right.
A great deal of the social activity at IU revolves around fraternities/sororities and sporting events, which can leave freshmen and the uninitiated feeling like an outsider. Luckily, however, for those willing to become involved in other activities and groups, and there are many of them, it is easy to make lasting friendships and feel as if one is part of a community in Bloomington.
Indiana University is a place that allows prospective students to discover new interests, but it requires personal discipline and perseverance to find where one truly feels like they belong the most.
The choices made available to a person who is seeking to learn material that is not particularly mainstream. There are many interesting course to take at IU.
IU has the best campus. I saw a lot of campuses of other colleges in my life and i completely fall in love with IU campus. It is beautiful in every single season, (yes, even on winter time, when it's snowing! ). Professors are great, they want to help you as much as they can. Students are all nice and I made really cool friends. IU has a lot of resources for group studies, which help making the semester easier on you. Not to mention all types of activities you may be involved, meeting new people, leadership organizations, overall improving your resume!
The greek system is a big part of the campus and a lot of fun
I wish i had known that you should be prepared for the extra amount of pressure.
My favorite class as far for me has been organic chemistry. As much as I hated and i was very afraid about it, now its totally different. Our professor is really nice and helpful, always available after class and in his office hours, AI all great. They have a group room meeting specifically for this chemistry class. I met a lot of student same level as me or even better, which made us study harder and share thoughts together ! It is very competitive ..
Someone who wants a relatively large school contained to a small area. Excellent music, business and liberal arts programs (among others). A social, friendly and well rounded individual who likes meeting new people and having new experiences.
The variety of things available. It would take you all the four years and more to discover all the interesting things to see at IU.
Used to be partying, before that basketball, now research
With 30,000 students, it was easy to get lost, difficult to connect with advisors, and hard to find support when I hit rough spots.
The greek system is popular, we hope there is more thing here.
Honestly, there is not one type of person who could not find their place at Indiana University. The campus is so large and diverse that anyone attending can easily find his or her niche. For example, many varieties of activities outside academics are available and can make the campus seem smaller if a student prefers a more intimate atmosphere.
The partying stereotype definitely has its flaws. There are people who do that just like at all the big ten schools. It is such a big school though that it is really easy to find a large group of the student body who are not into that scene at all and are very academically competitive and driven. The stereotype about the snobby girls on the otherhand definitely has a good base. I was actually surprised, as a born and raised Hoosier with family in Bloomington, to find how unfriendly a large amount of the student body seems to be when compared to other campuses I have been on. I had never really heard that many bad things about IU students, except from Purdue fans of course, but once I got here I was surprised I hadn't heard more.
To quote the grass roots publication with an insignificant circulation and almost nonexistent amount of subscibers known as PLAYBOY, "We're a drinking school, with a basketball problem."
IU is surrounded by a lot of honor societies. I would definitely call the frats and sororities the school stereotypes. They are known for having study resources that help students going throughout the semester, they involve in different activities, have a lot of opportunities for their future, career involvement and of course known for having big parties!
Another stereotype is the religious people. I have noticed sometimes walking down the hall, a group of muslim females, wearing a 'wrap' around they head, covering all their face and body. They are very nice people once you know them but they like to socialize with their own group.
Nerds: another popular stereotype on my school. Socially little 'awkward', smart, good at school and good grades. They have a bizarre sense of humor. Usually not very interested in sports and dates. Very smart.
You see students that shops at the most famous shop: urban outfiters , target, Sears or JCpenny clothes. (usually sororities), and also students who shop at walmart or K-mart.
On my birthday this year I was painting my toenails in the lounge in my dorm with some girls from my floor when I got a text from a friend saying they saw a camel walking down the middle of campus! Me and another girl literally ran across campus to hunt down the camel and get a picture with it! My mom totally didn't believe me until I send her a picture!
I visited IU and fell in love with the school. The campus was beautiful even in the middle of January, the professors were friendly, and the academic programs were some of the best. It was close enough to home, but still fairly far away. It was the perfect blend of everything I wanted.
