Indiana State University is an amazing campus with tons of diversity. I am a college freshmen and I love it. The professors are amazing at what they do and they really help and reach out to you when you need it because it is such a small campus. The athletics are also great! The campus environment is okay. The campus food is not the best thing in the world, but it will do for the time being. At least they have the commons food where the Burger King and Georges Cafe is. The dorms and housing is beautiful. I live in the towers and they are very nice, next year I will be moving into the sorority house though and those are also very nice. The parties on the weekend are good and most of the time safe. We have not had to many incidents with it not being safe on campus. Overall the student life is spectacular. Indiana State University is a excellent campus.

My first semester at Indiana State University has been great! I have achieved 4.0 GPA and I made the Deans List. I enjoy the Aviation Program and I am excited for what my future holds. I intend to continue to work hard and take every opportunity the Indiana State University offers to me. With being enrolled in the Aviation Program, my costs increase for my schooling for the flight fees. I have worked to save money to help with my fees but I also find applying for what scholarships I can. I look forward to the remainder of my time at Indiana State University. Enjoying the sports activities, clubs and meeting many new people. I am proud to be a Sycamore and excelling to insure a great future for myself!
There is a supportive environment within the university to have questions or concerns addressed. With a recent change from aviation management to professional flight, the overall transition has been smooth and I have a clear and exciting view of my degree path. The aviation program offers new and growing learning opportunities, including a degree in unmanned systems, which was part of my initial draw to ISU. I am also pleased with the connections and networking opportunities offered through the aviation dept. I feel very hopeful about related job opportunities available after graduation.
