I love the University of Southern Indiana! It's the perfect college for kids who want a home away from home after high-school. It's not too big, and it has a beautiful landscape, perfect for students who live on campus, I enjoy being able to walk through the trails on my way to class every morning. Classes are small, and professors are able to spend quality one on one with a student if you're struggling in a class!

I have been very impressed with all aspects of USI. I live off of campus so I do not know what the dorms/housing is like. All staff, professors, and those is charge of the college are amazing. They truly care about your success and want to do whatever they can to help you. I have been impressed with everything starting with the new student orientation I first attended!
University of Southern Indiana is a great university! This unviersity has so many opportunities to get involved in or out of campus. For my first year here on campus I met so many great new people that became great friends with me. These friends become like family and people I can count on, they may live far away but they are still great and stay in contact with you. This campus also has many opportunities to get to know your professors, advisors, and mentors. The University of Southern Indiana brought me not only great friends but amazing group orgianzations to be involved with also, I am currently apart of the Student Ambassadors that give tours of the campus and not only that but for next year I am not your Emerging Leaders Mentor Leader. This places has so many great opportunities that look outstanding on resumes when you go to apply for a job in the future. It is small but a safe campus that makes you feel at home.
