Indiana State University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (10)
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.
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.
Having been to school and completed a LVN course 3 year ago, I would like to say when it comes to scholls its been my experiance when it comes wright down to it there all the same, Most people who wright these reviews havent finished any program.
Dont worry about all thie little things, my advice is, make sure its an acredited school, as close to home as you can get, then just sign up and start going, let nothing get in your way.
Dont focus on all the little BS comes up ignore it and move on, I base my opion not only on my personel experiances but also co workers ive talked, we all have the same storys at diffrent school, Just Do It! you wont regret it if you do your best graduate and start racking in the money.
I have been enrolled in this program for four years and now in the process of completing the dissertation. I can't express how pleased I am with the course content, teaching style (for most of the professors, not all) and philosophy of program delivery.
This is a great value and I am definitely the better for the experience, plus, I've been able to keep my job while finishing the degree. It is *not* easy, but I wouldn't want it to be. Of course I don't think it's as hard as an MIT or equivalent, but it is certainly a life changing experience and one that is very positive.
The worst part of the program is the early guidance and administrative support. You are expected to "figure out" a lot of the logistics, which is not possible in many cases. As a result you end up relying on current and former students who know the ropes a little better... in the end, this is actually a good thing, but very frustrating as you're going through it.
