| Sadly, I regret ever attending Ball State! After two years of hell, I'm finally transferring to a more competitive school in Chicago. I really did not like how the school seemed to have a certain group of people there: close-minded Midwesterners. I really tried to have a positive outlook on the school when I attended, but I kept feeling unsure about it as a secure choice for my future. The core classes are easy to breeze by in and they feel like busy work. There are many students there that I wonder how in the world they were accepted into a university (oh, for the money). Most of the dorms are in need of repair or should just be demolished. The education quality there made me feel uneasy and like I would not be prepared for once I graduated. I really wish I would have looked around more before choosing this school. Do your research and check out MANY schools before choosing a college. In summary, this school was too easy and I didn't feel like the degree I would receive would be enough. Transferring out of there is the best decision I could have made! |

|Not so bright|
| I did the speech-pathology program, just undergrad. It's a decent program, as well as some others. Some of their programs are a joke however, like many of the art-related ones. |
The university itself is built on a pretty student-friendly system. For instance, student fees at the beginning of the semester mean free access to the fitness center, student health, lots of printing at the library, shows in the auditorium, along with some other perks, throughout the semester. Also, great accessibility-the library is literally open 20 hours a day. I personally had a very difficult time making friends simply because I was not interested in finding any excuse (ie-a tough test, Rush week, MLKJ Day) to get drunk. I honestly cannot count the number of times I saw multiple people hung-over and/or still drunk in class. It's definitely a place to go if you want to see spoiled kids go to college and not care about their opportunities. Tuition's cheap though! State funding covered my tuition, fees, and books, and I still had money left over.

| There are two broad and important aspects to this school : 1) Location (city) 2)Academics |
1) Muncie is not a city, it is a town. I have lived in Muncie on and off for many years and i never liked it. In general, it is a bit on the hillbilly/redneck side. It still baffles me as to why the students are awkward, rude, and always afraid of something ! In my opinion, it is really hard to make decent friends. You will find drinking buddies in no time, but real genuine friends are almost impossible to find. If you have ever stepped foot outside of this country town into a real city, you probably will not be fond of this place. ADVICE: VISIT BSU AND MUNCIE BEFORE YOU COMMIT TO GOING HERE !!2) As for the academics, in general it is average-good. I have had classes in many departments and got a little taste of what they are like. There are some departments that are a bit sketchy (ask someone who is in the department you are interested in). As a psychology major i have met some good professors, and some really good ones. It is a solid department.If you like Muncie and the people in it, you will really like BSU.
