IUSB is a fun place to learn at! The dorms are very different than many other universities. You have your own space and more than enough resources to excel. The libraries, the student-life activities, the food, the environment, and the people around are all great as well! I highly recommend Indiana University - South Bend!

Indiana University is a excellent college! My first semester was in the spring of 2019, and it was very educational. The professors are very respectful, helpful and were really good at making themselves available to students. The student life needs some improvement, it seems like if not athlete their is nothing for students to do on campus; other than that I really do enjoy my university.
I had a few good professors but some of them weren't very helpful and I mainly taught myself everything in like 3/5 classes. My classes weren't too hard this semester, but I guess we'll see in the spring!
