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!

It’s a very social and interesting campus. As a student you will always find something to do around and there are many different social groups/organizations you can fit right in with. There are also mane resources you can reach out to with any situation give such as tutoring, electronic assistance etc., anything you can think of!
I love how friendly everyone is! The campus is gorgeous and the town around it has so much to do. There are many different clubs and organizations to join, too! Fraternities and sororities here are much different- they are definitely not the stereotypical version from movies. Overall, it is a great, overlooked school!
