Peyton Kinnick - 1/7/2020
Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2019
"I really enjoyed my undergraduate program at Ball State University. The professors at Ball State are extremely caring and understanding. These professors want you to excel in your studies. In my time at Ball State, I had so much support from my professors at all times. My professors made learning fun, and they wanted you to enjoy learning. I never wanted to miss a class at Ball State. I was so happy to be there and to hear their stories and how passionate they were to teach us. My experience at Ball State for my undergraduate degree is the reason I am okay with commuting an hour and a half each week to continue my education at Ball State for my graduate degree."

"Beware of Housing Contracts!!! My daughter lives in Scheidler Apartments with two other girls. A week and a half before the end of the first semester, one of the girls said she was moving out due to getting an ESA. The housing staff met with her alone and let her transfer her lease and let her out of the lease of this apartment. AND they decided for the families of the remaining girls that they (the families) would pick up the extra cost. So the housing staff can let someone out of a lease and they can pass the expense on to you. This is not in the lease itself but it is in a separate handbook to which the lease references."

"Ball State University has a great campus and great food and great professors. BUT, as of now there are two dorms on campus that have bed bugs! And the University has not taken action. I do not feel comfortable living in these conditions! Its gross!!!!"

Degree: Nutrition
Graduation Year: 2013
"I thoroughly enjoyed my time as a dietetics major at Ball State University. Within the program, I felt as though my classmates and faculty became a family. Faculty were very communicative and answered all questions. They were very supportive and always provided great resources when needed. The faculty came from varying backgrounds, which provided me with a multitude of perspectives within the nutrition field. This was very helpful when I was deciding on a career path. I would highly recommend Ball State University for dietetics or any other chosen major."

Degree: Social Work - Campus

"I enjoyed my academic experience at Ball State University. My professors, academic advisors, and disability support services helped me achieve a high standing and graduate with my degree a year early. The lay-out and accessibility of the campus has been helpful for enhancing my experience. I was surrounded by people who wanted me to succeed. Because of the amazing undergraduate experience I had, I decided to continue my graduate education at the institution."

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2018
"Ball State University's Telecommunications Video Production program came highly recommended to me, and having been through the program, I certainly extend that recommendation. Having been interested in Video Production for a while, the program did not disappoint in educating me about video production- such as the aesthetics of storytelling, understanding the technological side of running a set, and understanding the importance of being a well-rounded individual and filmmaker. I got tremendous real-life experience working on film and documentary sets, experiences in which I am truly proud of."

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 1997
"The Master's program in Counseling Psychology at Ball State University was the only accredited counseling program in the state of Indiana at the time I attended. The program was well designed and allowed Counseling students an opportunity to gain knowledge and skills and become comfortable working in a clinical setting. The faculty was supportive and I always felt they had the best interests of the students in mind. The University library was second to none and the general atmosphere of the university was warm and welcoming."

Emily - 6/4/2018
Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2018
"Ball State University will provide you with an exceptional degree at an affordable rate. Choosing to go to Ball State was probably one of the best decisions I could have made. Ball State has dedicated faculty, a diverse student body, beautiful campus, and a lot of strong degree programs. The business administration program did not disappoint. I was given insight into entrepreneurship, management, economics, accounting, international business, finance, marketing, logistics and supply chain, statistics, information systems, etc. This wide-reaching program gives you options to pick some of your electives and have a say in what you want to learn about."

"Ball State University is an excellent college. I felt that I not only experienced a well-rounded education for my degree, but I was also immersed in several opportunities to expand my level of openness to diversity. While attending Ball State university, I felt very welcomed by the Muncie community as well as students at the university. I felt at home. When I applied for my masters program, I felt well prepared for the upcoming curriculum, and I felt that I stood out among my fellow applicants due to the opportunities I seized while at Ball State University. The majority of professors at Ball State University truly care about their students, and will go above and beyond for each student. I felt that this is especially important for incoming freshmen because freshmen are often not prepared for the course load of college. For my degree program specifically, I was introduced to a multitude of courses that allowed me to have a very well-rounded psychological science learning experience. I took courses ranging from forensic psychology to psychology of diversity to abnormal psychology, all taught by intriguing professors that made the course fun and interesting. I looked forward to going to most of my courses and I feel that I will apply the information I learned throughout my undergraduate career. Outside of an academic setting, I had an amazing experience as an athlete at Ball State University. I felt that my team was incredibly close, and they felt like a family to me. I easily adapted to college because of my athletic team. I was provided with amazing friends before I even stepped onto campus. All in all, I had a great experience at Ball State University, and I would recommend pursuing an education at Ball State. #WEFLY #CHIRPCHIRP"
