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!

Indiana State has a beautiful campus and incredible academics with a wide array of diversity, but there is a serious issue with parking and some of the dorms. My 4 year experience has been an incredible one and I wouldn't change it for anything!
Indiana State University is a great place to start your career! The student life around campus is amazing, the diversity is very blended, and the scenery of the campus is beautiful! The few pieces of advice I would give to freshman coming to the big Sycamore Blue is too look on RateMyProfessor.com when signing up for classes, and to actually get involved! Many doors will open up for you around campus!
