A school's overall score by level is based on the school's by-program performance weighted by student enrollment in each program.

ISU can be anything you want to make it. The services are there for students but don't actively reach out for you to use them. There are fantastic faculty and some that are less than to be desired. The location and atmosphere of the town are fantastic and the university definitely gave me a degree that is worth something in the long run.
