Ball State University Graduate Reviews

8 reviews
The faculty in my program are amazing! They are all so invested in the grad students. The campus though has very limited parking, and The only major issue I had was with the campus apt I live in - they provided me and my roommate with separate contracts, but wanted me to pay full price when my roommate moved out over the summer and they wouldn’t let me sublease to earn the additional money. I get a GA stipend from the school, but rent that summer would have cost me 3/4 of my monthly income, so I moved out for the summer and paid the $100/month storage fee to keep some of my stuff in my apt. Not a well thought system on their part. Other than that, the school is pretty good.

I love it here at Ball State University. Here, I feel like it’s so welcoming. Everyone is friendly here. Living at kinghorn my RA and the desk workers definitely making sure you feel like you’re at home and safe. There’s never been a time here that I didn’t feel safe as well. Security is heavily enforced here ! Academics at this school are amazing. There are so many opportunities around this campus to help you be successful in your major as well.
I like how involvd all my professors have been with my success. I also like that the provide my courses online so that I can work full time while also being a grad student. In addition, it’s a huge benefit that all the courses I need to take are available and it does not seem as impacted as my previous undergrad school was, SJSU. Area’s that Ball State can improve on are administrative staff and how avaialable they are in helping you. It is usually challenging to get a call back or response when having issues with registration, loans or financial aid. Ultimately, I would recommend BSU to anyone ready to begin their college career.
