I think it is a great campus and it has great opportunities for academic courses, financial help, and social interactions that will make anyone pleased. I am very happy that my major is working out for me and that its one that is both fun at times and very beneficial to my future.
This is my first semester here. It was a very hard transition. I would say it's extremely hard to make friends here unless you are in some sort of group or organization. Overall I only have one person class due to covid and that professor is my all time favorite. Some of my professors I have no idea what they even look like or want which has been hard. I enjoy the smaller classroom size because it is easier to communicate with your professors and to ask for help. This provides me a better education because I can ask questions and devlop more of an understanding on the knowledge I am learning. I do not know anything about the dorm life. I've been very closed off to the school this year because of Covid. I only know one building. However I am looking forward to next year to really experience what Indiana University of South Bend is all about.
I didn\'t really have a great time. I wish I could say it was great, but a lot of teachers and students were in a revolving door constantly leaving. they tried to fix the elevators in Northside while I was there but not only did they still have problems, the Library would constantly only have one elevator working at a time for five floors. Food services don\'t have enough employees to even open, much less to care. I witnessed a student steal a drink right in front of someone restocking. Don\'t use the vending machines unless you have the app/apple pay, never use coins. The card slots are messed with a lot and you will lose at least one coin for every 3 you put in. Food options were worse than my public high school in quality when it came to the main dinning. Almost everyone on campus drove, so when they left class, they just went home. If you can\'t drive as I still can\'t I highly do not recommend as theres nothing very good around. The McDonalds behind housing doesn\'t do correct orders or fresh fries, the Dairy Queen is always understaffed, and the Martins seems to only have items on the edge of going bad. Lime Scooters were amazing until the got too many parking violations and were removed. Geese are everywhere, bring an umbrella and jangle your keys. Needless to say, Im transferring.
IUSB is in general a commuter campus, it offers a lot of diversity with primarily great, caring professors. Definitely not a safe environment nor is the campus police worth mentioning.. Overall IUSB offers really low tuition rates for an undergraduate education. However, I still feel it's very hard to afford reasonably/comfortably. Financial aid here expects and encourages you to take out loans as though it's your only option. It's definitely not an entirely fun place to be. Students who are financially fit, have scholarships, or live at home in the area I encourage them to apply as tuition is "cheap". As far as living expenses plus tuition it's quite a a hassle and very unreasonable. This campus offers no life to it. It's extremely dull... it's most definitely nothing like the college experience most people aspire of. This is not the place to be if you want to have the "best 4 years of your life".

I originally graduated from high school a year early and took a year off school so I could start college with my friends. I attended a enrolled in a large traditional university and was immediately overwhelmed with the people I met and the responsibilites of college. My grades suffered my first year adn picked back up in my sophmore year. I decided to transfer to my hometowns non traditional university which is a satelite school of the my previous university. here I have found it is much easier to focus on studies as well as get internships and develope my skill set. If I were able to go back and make give myself some advice it would be to take a broad longterm look at what it is I want out of life and set goals for myself. To take things one step at a time and not try to rush into doing everything at once. I would also tell myself to start my college career at a smaller school and work my way up to a larger more demanding university rather than the other way around.

I wish I had known more about the financial aid process. This isn't something specific to IU South Bend, but more to the college process. Being well-educated and informed when it comes to financial matters is a must. Research the scholarships that are available, apply for as many as you can, and only take out student loans if you have to. If you do need student loans, take out federal loans and only use private funds as a last resort.
The connections it has with some of the larger companies could be stronger. The university is a satelite school so its ties with large companies are not as strong as its parent school.
Someone who likes a smaller school with smaller class sizes.
Mostly commuter students
I think the small size of the school is a positive and the teachers are more able to give individual attention becasue of this.
People that want to feel "lost" in their surroundings. It is a small campus and a small town.
My school is very flexible to people schedules, needs, and wants.
My classmates are friendly, supportive, and succussfull.
The technology and software in my field of study is kept up to date as well as new innovative techniques that come into the field.
Our school offers great technology and state of the art computer labs available the majority of the day.
Some of them are. Ever since the housing opened up, it has turned into a party college.
I don't think academics are focused on as much as they should be in this college. What they mostly care about (of course) is the money, and that you attend class. It's difficult to get help sometimes.
For every great professor, there is honestly a terrible one at IUSB, I'd say it goes right down the 50-50 line. You will get the teachers that will be there when you need help, learn your name, have great participation etc etc, then you will have the one that comes into the office once a week, and lectures the whole time.
There are a lot of clubs, that is one thing that is good. Something for everyone.
A lot of people think that IUSB is just a party college, and that it was the best/most affordable college they could get into to. Basically, around here, if you go to IUSB, your the dumb kids from high school.
IUSB has it's good points, the campus is just the right size, not to big or too small, there's a lot of good places to chill out and be with friends and then some of the professors are cool. I think the biggest problem is that IUSB doesn't have it's priorities straight. We have an Student Activities Center, and that's where all our tuition goes, while the classes leave a lot to be desired.
