Well, where do I start.BrightOther
Well, where do I start. The people, there are nice down to earth people and there are very conceded people. Typically more conceded people are in sports, BUT their are definitely exceptions to this rule. My first year, I heard rumors galore. Did it make me mad? Yes. It prevented creating relationships horribly and people overlooked me for events and stuff that I tried to get involved with. As far as people having relationships with Christ, I can't judge the strength, because the fact that I'm not them. But I will say their are 35 denomination represented at TIU. So it goes from the very conservative views to very liberal views. So the flavor of what faith looks like is all different. But Luckily the Gospel is what everyone has in common in their faiths. But there are also people that are atheists or agnostic that attend. There reasoning, no clue. But since there is this perception that everyone is a Christian, people assume bad behaviors is what is expected out of Christians, but it's false. So this campus is diverse, find the right friends and you'll be good in that department. Classwork is at a decent pace, it can be faster, but with certain classes you need it to be easy. Professor are friendly, there are exceptions, but mainly approachable. And social life is what you make it, it can be boring or it can be fun. There are boring times, it happens. But be proactive and not a hermit and you'll be good.

Question
I have been toNot so bright
I have been to many schools. This school is full of unfriendly people who seem snobby and hard to get to know. The campus is deserted. The people are cliquey. There are many ways to get involved however this does not make the people worth getting to know.

Question
The people at TIU are mixed.Bright
The people at TIU are mixed. There are people from all over. The diversity is excellent. The cliques at TIU are noticeable. You are judged like any school. I think there are quite a few girls who have conceited personalities and need to learn how to treat others. On the other hand, there are girls who are down to earth and do not act immature competetitve or judgemental. It is good to get involved to stay busy. If you are not in clubs or busy with work, you will be lonely. Also, the guys here are easier to get along with. Some of the girls gossip and act rude, but that is just a warning that they are not worth being friends with,If you choose good friends based on the right things: their values, (not social status) you will be fine. make sure you have a group of friends who understand and support you and do not judge you or gossip behind your back. Avoid drama creating cliques and you will have a great journey socially. Academically, TIU is strong but sometimes is not challenging and the classes can have some very distracting noisy students who are rude. The professors are good except when they ignore the rude people who whisper like they are in elementary school during class.
