Indiana University - Bloomington Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (44)
Great professors, great opportunities, however it is a large school so it's also possible to feel lost and insignificant, especially in classes over 50+ students.
IU is great because it is so large and offers so many different kinds of courses. Even if you're not sure what you want to do yet, you can explore many different majors all on one campus.
Indiana University is an outstanding educational institution. Faculty and staff provide a balance of challenge and support that help students grow and develop. The campus is also so beautiful!
Indiana University is a state school with strong programs in science, business, and music. There is also a lot of school pride in basketball and the students enjoy partying hard year-round, especially in late April. The town it is in is small, about the same size as the school, but there is a lively bar scene. The campus is very beautiful and the surround areas are wooded, with hiking and lakes very nearby. The Greek scene is a small population (~20%) but it is one of the strongest identifiers for students.
Beautiful Campus, well kept. Humanities professors can't be beat. Very expensive for out-of-state students. Consider going somewhere closer to home if you're from out-of-state and didn't receive a substantial scholarship
I loved the opportunities afforded by Indiana University. It's a Big Ten research institution that also has a conservatory-level music school, so it had what I was looking for in a school. There are incredible programs and professors throughout the different departments and schools of the University.
The school is extremely well rounded and trains you highly for work in the nonprofit sector. While the classes at times feel like they are irrelevant, they work together to provide you with skills you never knew you needed. The network of people will continue to help and support you throughout your career. Plus, Indiana University is beautiful and fun!
I went to one of the off-site, smaller campuses and it was cheaper and more convenient than other universities in my area and state. I enjoyed most of my experience there, they really help me to develop my critical thinking skills. I wish they were more involved with the job search process after graduation. I don't feel like the advisors cared as much as I would have liked about my education and future. I wish I would have taken advantage of more programs and made it a priority to further my different areas of interest. Most of my qualms where with my choice of study and not so much with the university itself. It was a hard time to graduate. Making smarter decisions would have helped me in the long run.
IU offered a great social experience for growing and establishing 'who I am'. I have such fond memories of IU and love to go back frequently. 4 years was not enough.
It was an experience that I am grateful for. It was a lot of work, and a lot of money. But in my opinion, worth it.
