Indiana State University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (13)
I love Indiana State University and highly recommend ISU to anyone looking to further their education. The curriculum has been challenging and the faculty is extremely professional and helpful. I completed a large portion of the degree online and the ability to watch lectures and complete the same course work of in class students has been a blessing!
I really enjoyed most everything about attending ISU online. The only issue I had was with financial aid. It was a little bit difficult to get the information I needed. Other than that I learned a lot through the online classes and it helped me grow as a person.
I enjoyed my time at this institution. I was able to connect with other graduate students like myself and foster relationships with other students. The faculty in my program very knowledgeable about the field and the program allowed plenty of practical experiences.
I loved the college town atmosphere and the small campus. The class sizes were small and I loved the one on one attention. However, the out of state tuition for me was quite expensive compared to my current professional earnings.
Having gone through my early education on campus, I was a little reserved about attending classes online. I was worried the quality of the classes offered wouldn't compare to classes on campus. I was pleasantly surprised to find the instructors accessible, the classes challenging, and the ease of enrolling and accessing material high. I was gladly refer anyone seeking a flexible school curriculum to Indiana State University.
Indiana state has a great criminology program and I would recommend to anyone
The campus is small enough to feel welcome and not overwhelmed, but big enough to give you a sense of adventure. You can make your college career exactly what you want- focused and driven with no community engagement, or become involved in campus life completely. My program was small, but all of my teachers were wonderful and really cared about me as a student.
A Human Development & Family Studies degree from the College of Nursing, Health and Human Services will open many doors and procure employment opportunities for students wanting to work with children, families and/or the elderly in the public or private sector. Since most local and state government positions require at least a Bachelor's degree, ISU's curriculum in HDFS prepares students with the skills and education needed to understand these populations. Since volunteer work is required in some classes, coursework knowledge is gained through implementation of studies with hands-on training.
ISU was a great school to attend both on campus and online. So much has changed since I attended. The campus is small enough that you don't feel rushed getting between classes but large enough that you don't feel like you have no privacy or space. I attended for 5 years and am now over $140K in student loan debt. Financially ISU is not a great option but the classes and campus make up for that. I studied criminology which is now no longer offered it Is now a Criminal Justice degree. I have never once used my degree since graduating. There are not that many jobs in my field. Overall I had a great time at ISU.
I love ISU. The teachers are great. They really treat me like an individual. The quality of the education is very high. I can't say anything bad about the school EXCEPT that they want me to do 210 clinical hours to complete the RN to BSN program. Many programs like this require little to NO clinical time. I feel this is excessive.
