This was a major disappoint. The useless work to take up time is literally endless. Over critical grading makes it impossible to do well. The only thing that is close to a positive is it is somewhat affordable. I would pay twice the tuition for classes that teach me and give me the chance to succeed.

Under the present administration, ISU is a broken university. Failed vision is evident at ISU. The students here are mindless and the administrators not much better. Students and faculty lack passion. The administration has done everything they can to diminish good teaching. This university recruits students who are not academically prepared for college. Don't waste your time at ISU. You will be greatly disappointed and unhappy if you come here.

As others have mentioned, ISU is what you make of it. In fact, almost every college experience is what you make of it. It seems from many of the comments that a lot of former students were upset over the poor surroundings and social atmosphere. How will keggers help you succeed in life? Academically, ISU seems to ride right down the middle of the road, possibly to reach a wide variety of learners. I have always been a top student in my courses, and instructors took notice. If you show the initiative for learning the basic course material and beyond, then most professors seem apt to take you under their wing, and provide other sources of "real world" learning and experience. Do not just assume that you can float through a program and make minimum grades and still get a stellar education--you can't do that anywhere. This is college! It is time to work hard, no matter where you decide to attend. It pays off in the end if you work hard. Initially, I attended IU--Bloomington and hated it. Students at IU were just sheep being herded onward and off into the real world. Professors rarely cared or took time to aid students. In 4 of my 6 courses, I was just 1 of 300+ students. At ISU, I was generally 1 of no more than 25 students and instructors took notice of my work, and I made some wonderful connections with important people because of it. In fact, I got a job even before I graduated because of my work ethic and ISU experience. If you're someone that is looking to pay for parties, a fancy school name, and legacy, then maybe ISU isn't for fact, maybe college isn't for you. Pick a college that best suits your needs and aspirations, and then work hard all of the way through graduation. Don't just think of college as a big party that, at the end, is supposed to grant you a fancy job just because you paid tuition. Hard work gets you a job post-grad...not the fact that you just dropped a couple grand on courses for 4 years. All-in-all, I am thankful that I attended ISU and worked my ass definitely has paid off for me.
