My first semester at Indiana State has been great! i haven't had any problems with getting to my class and making new friends. Most of my professors were very helpful when I needed help. The campus is a nice size for me, not to small or big. I can easily get to my classes on time, even with ten minutes to spare. Making friends isn't that hard. Welcome week, as long as you participate, is a great way to go out and meet new people. They have a week of full on activities and campus parties, with music, food, and free stuff. The dorms aren't bad at all. If you live in the freshman dorms where you have to share a bathroom, I do admit, it is weird at first but you will eventually get used to it. You have an RA and an APA who lives on the floor with you. The RA basically sets the rules, make sure everything is okay, and helps you with campus life. the APA helps you with homework and checks on your class with you to make sure you're doing good.
Review Indiana State University
I would like to housing be a little more up to date, most of the dorms on campus are under construction but there is still plenty of work to be done! I love the campus life, professors, and interactions with my peers overall it's a great way to get the college experience as a freshman and continue ones education.
The overall experience at Indiana State University was great. The stuff as well as the classes were entertaining. I enjoyed being on campus, the atmosphere was calm and peaceful. After my first year I am eagerly waiting the next year. If the classes are challenging the professors are more than willing to help their students or find someone who can. This helps make Indiana State University a great learning environment. The class room settings and activities make a friendly environment. To find people with the same interest and goals makes the college experience easier for students who are new to the school.
