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 Your College
Indiana State University is an amazing school. What I enjoyed most was the university's strength in helping their students succeed. There are plentiful resources around campus that benefits a student's academic progress whether or not the student needs extra help or just a challenge. However, what I would love to see change is the level of diversity on the campus; the problem is that there is not enough diversity, and students, such as myself look forward to seeing aspects like this when considering campus life.
My experience so far with Indiana State University has been great. When I moved in there were tons of upper class men and faculty around to help incoming freshman get what they needed and get them to their rooms. They were also very knowledgeable about events and helped us to find out what to do once we were settled. I noticed within the first month of school that it is a very friendly campus and most people are willing to help you if you needed help figuring the school out. Classes are good and nothing is too easy which is a good indicator that I’m learning new and useful things. It also didn’t take long to get used to my route of walking to class because campus is pretty small. The dining is great in the sycamore dining hall and the commons has several fast food restaurants, a breakfast, and a Greek restaurant. Public safety is also very helpful in many ways for those who are handicapped, afraid to walk the streets at night, or feel as if they are in danger.
