"Ball State University has an excellent education program. Throughout my undergraduate studies, I had numerous opportunities to participate in classrooms with teachers. This invaluable knowledge helped to prepare me for my teaching career. That is why I have chosen Ball State University again, to pursue my Master's degree."

"The online program at Ball State University provides students the ability to continue education without having to sit in a classroom. This is convenient for working professional who are working 40+hour weeks. The classes are structured and developed in ways to engage each student."

"Ball State University is a school full of diversity and opportunity. The first thing I really enjoyed about Ball State was the diverse community it fostered. There are students of every background at this university, and campus connections foster these differences. There are many cultural events that occur throughout the school year - most of which are free. One that sticks out to me specifically is the Amazing Taste. At this event, students spend one meal swipe in order to access 3 floors of different cultures represented by food, dance, and music. Ball State allows students to celebrate who they are and what they believe in a safe and educational manner. My second favorite part about Ball State is the opportunities it offers. There are chances to make connections every day. There are multiple job fairs held throughout the year. With a little searching students can participate in immersive learning programs, become a teaching assistant, or even assist professors with research. While these opportunities are not easily found, any student with some interest and perseverance can find these opportunities around every corner. Ball State offers students two things that I feel other schools lack at: diversity and opportunity. Tucked away in the middle of Indiana; Ball State gives an enriching experience to any student who attends."

"Education: I graduated from the Ball State Teachers College in 2016. I feel that the program that I was in was exceptional. I had amazing professors, advisors and many opportunities for actual field experience. The program offered many student teaching opportunities within the state, out of the state and even out of the country. I received a job offer 2 month prior to graduating from Ball State. I have been in my field for several months now and I find that I am more prepared than other first year peers. Advising/career opportunities: Ball State has a career center that helps with creating resumes, preparing for job interviews and searching for jobs. There are also several career fairs throughout the year. There are larger career fairs open for everyone and there are smaller career fairs that are targeted for certain careers. Diversity: Ball state has a diverse staff and student population. There is also a multicultural center that host many events and has many information for diverse clubs throughout the campus."

"The Miller College of Business at Ball State University has been a great experience for me so far in my pursuit of an MBA degree. The staff is very helpful and communicative. They understand the challenges of pursuing a graduate degree while working full time and completing classes online. I would recommend Ball State University to anyone thinking about pursuing a graduate degree, especially online."

"The degree program was a good program to start with if you plan on going to graduate school. If you plan on going the medical route, you may want to take more science based courses. My suggestion involves searching well paying careers then majoring in that field specifically. Overall, BSU is a good university."

"The curriculum is good, balanced. The teaching staff are engaging but of course online experience still lacks the rich social environment of face to face engagement. The assignments promote reflective learning and provoke deep connections. If I was near Ball State I would sign on the on campus track!"

"Ball State was an excellent place to study! It is big enough to get the "college experience" but small enough where your teachers know your name. I never felt like a number. The extracurricular activities are vast and diverse and you cannot beat the recreation opportunities. Campus housing is clean and safe and the food is amazing. I cannot speak enough about how amazing Ball State has been for me!"

"I had a wonderful experience. I appreciated a majority of my professors, especially as a began taking classes towards my major. I felt the size of the campus and number of students was a perfect fit for me. I had a wonderful experience working with my academic advisor."
