Hello all, I am a 20 year old student currently attending Ivy Tech. After this year I will have approximately 3 years left of school. I have been conditionally accepted for transfer to Indiana University and Ball State and I am really looking for opinions from others on both(or one) of these schools. I am unsure of my intended major at this point, but I am thinking something in T-Com, or Business. I also have Education or Bio in the back of my mind, but those are much less likely. From what I understand Ball State is stronger in T-com where as IU is stronger in Business, so that's kind of a wash.
I've visited both of the campuses and my general impressions were that the campuses themselves were nice except for Ball State is in kind of a dump of a town where as the whole Bloomington area seemed rather pleasant. During my visit to BSU it didn't seem like parking was a huge issue. When i went to IU the guide was telling my how horrible parking conditions are, and how you are probably better off leaving your car at home. I've also heard that BSU is much more focused on fraternities than IU is. I myself am not a big party person. I drink occasionally, but I'm not really interested in getting wasted every night. So that's basically where i'm at, and what I know, or think I know of the colleges. Please correct me if I'm wrong in anything that i said.
So what do you guys think, and what is your analysis of each of these schools, and where do you think I might best fit in and accomplish my goals? Thanks so much.
