WHAT I LIKED

I enjoyed the canvas set up for this school. The format was very easy on the eyes and easy to navigate.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I did not like the lack of communication from my advisor and because of this, I ended up accruing a heavy balance that I could not pay off, which caused me to withdraw from this school.

WHAT I LIKED

I love that BSU feels like a big school but at the same time, it feels small. Everyone is so friendly and I never feel nervous or unsafe by myself.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The campus is long rather than just one spot so my buildings are sometimes a far walk from one another.

WHAT I LIKED

The skills I have gained from my upbringing and experience in high school have shaped me into a person driven by initiative and the desire to achieve my set goals. I hope to be an active participant in activities that will propel me to achieve my dream of being a micro-biologist. In line with this, I hope that the Scholarship board grants me entry into this program as well as the inclusive community at Ball State. Drawing inspiration from the school’s motto; I believe that I AM READY TO FLY.

WHAT I LIKED

Ball State has a lot of degree options you can pursue. There are a lot of resources for students and a HUGE amount of clubs you can get involved in.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

It can be hard to work out academic credit with advisors sometimes. I have gotten some not-so-great advice from advisors, which impacted my schedule. My advice is to make sure you're well aware of what your requirements and make sure you plan well in advance!

WHAT I LIKED

I love how the classes are very informative while still allowing students to express themselves without too much pressure.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Ball State can be a little overwhelming, especially if you came from a smaller school or town. Don't be afraid to reach out to others so you can get comfortable with college life.
