University of Southern Indiana Reviews
I love my school! Campus is absolutely beautiful, big enough that you don't feel cramped, but small enough to have classes in multiple buildings and still get there on time. There is always something going on to get involved with, and the teachers are so nice and really know what they are talking about. After coming my sophomore year from a community college I was overwhelmed at the thought of being at a University, but I have been able to get the best grades I have ever gotten. I really believe that this is because I love my school and how the classes are constructed. Not to mention the amount of research help we have access to in the library! For a social work major, this has helped me tremendously.
I really enjoyed my experience at USI. I am from Evansville, so my only complaint is that for my personal, "ideal," college experience it wasn't the best match for me due to a lot of students I had already knew or went to school with. I just imagined seeing all new faces I guess. All of my professors in my two semesters were excellent. There's ample resources if you need any help and all the staff is pretty friendly. The campus is a great size and it's always nicely maintained. Their housing options, although are few, are all solid choices. There's constant events/activities going on for free and so many clubs you can join!
I really enjoyed going here! Most of the professors were very nice and helped so much. I think something that could change is parking, and better outlining where visitors parking is. I think this would resolve many parking tickets. Another thing I think they should change is how late the campus food stays open. I remember I would try to go get food and some places were closed before 5pm!
