The dorms were very nice. I love that I had my own bedroom. I loved my job at the WERC. Some of the professors were awesome and helpful, but most of the professors I had, did not care. The food at the grill pretty good. I loved working out the SAC! They’ve come a long way with the buildings. The dorms are close to campus. It’s a pretty small environment, this wasn’t my dream school but I did enjoy my time while I was there.

My experience with Indiana University South Bend has been wonderful so far. I just finished my freshman year and the student life there treated me very well! I loved the effort my professors put in with teaching not only their classes, but providing extra time outside of class to further cover material.
I am very glad that I chose to go to IUSB. Not only because it is affordable but because the classes are small so the professor gets to know you personally and helps when you have questions about the subject. It is very different than the typical lecture you would get at a bigger University and it helped a lot for someone like me who learns better in smaller groups. I've made so many friends because of the way IUSB is set up! If I had to choose it all over again, I would.
