IU is the first place where I have felt like home! It is the perfect place for me to develop culturally as there is a diverse and inclusive community. I am also gaining an invaluable education as there are so many highly ranked schools and majors within this institution. I also enjoy that I can take a break from academics by partaking in the rich patriotism and sports spirit as we are a part of the Big 10! Enrolling in a large university also provides you with more opportunities in terms of career recruitment, extracurriculars, organizations, and on-campus involvement. The icing on top of the cake is that campus is absolutely stunning. I would highly highly recommend everyone to come to Bloomington!

Bloomington, sometimes referred to as the most beautiful campus in the world, is an overall excellent university. They offer almost any major one could imagine, and if not there is a program where you can create your own! The athletics are one of a kind, with one of the most invested fan bases in the US. Bloomington is one of the best college towns, offering a wide variety of restaurants and bars near campus. Dorms and housing are similar to any campus, there are pricy options with hotel status housing, and economic housing that's much more affordable. Whatever option you choose, you are sure to become a family and make friends. Overall, this campus ranks high on all levels, from academics to athletics.
While Indiana University-Bloomington does have one of the most beautiful college campuses according to many surveys, this university also has it's downfalls. I will begin by presenting the perks; IU is able to maintain a solid base of students who go on to make a considerable amount of money, and sustain a large amount of students enrolled overall. By having so many students, others are able to socialize more easily, and maybe get into study groups. On the flip side, having so many kids does have it's downsides. These negatives include having too many kids in a classroom, which leads to classroom annoyances. As well, this campus is very big so it is hard to get around. What I would like to see IU change is the amount of students enrolled because of the many hassles that follow it. Overall, IU Bloomington is a great university, and a graduate should feel very accomplished!
