Indiana State University Reviews
I visited the campus and instantly fell in love. From the desk workers, financial counselors, fo the tour guides, it was a breathe of fresh air. The campus is gorgeous! 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 school with about 13,000 students which is a good size for comfort in classes. They have many clubs and activities for students to join and many bonuses that come with having your student ID card. This is a great school that I would recommend anyone to visit!
I am going to be attending Indiana State in the fall. The transition from high school to college can be one of the scariest things for a freshman. But, the staff and many students have made the transition for me one go very smoothly. I came into the year scared but where I stand now I cannot wait to start my classes and get involved in the community!
I have lived in Terre Haute, Indiana all of my life and I didn't ever step foot on the campus until my college visit this past year. I loved the feel to the school. The campus is beautiful! I took my senior pictures there and just loved walking around! I love the new buildings and renovations they have done to the school in the past decade. I've even seen they are redoing their front entrance! I highly recommend you take a visit here!
