Campus in spring Hoosier basketball Little 500 Having so many classes to choose from The guys The girls Free concerts from the School of Music Big-name entertainment acts ...
No parking! Walking to class in the snow Walking to class in the rain Walking to class when it's 90 degrees Overcrowded and somewhat outdated gyms Traffic vs. the pedestrians ...
I liked the campus alot, and the overall feel of the college. The teachers seemed very motivated also.
I didnt like that the sports team was not strong. I am an athlete, i like to win.
great if you are learning about medical technologies. The student that ive hired for a job seemed very educated and knew what he was doing. It must be because of the great teachers.
not the easiest school to get into.
I liked their emphasis on providing the best in technology for the students and the wide variety of extracurricular activities. I chose not to attend there because it was a bit more expensive due...
The cost of out of state tuition was a bit high for my budget. The "party scene" was active here as far as I could tell, so I would advise a brand new freshman to live in a study-related dorm, or...
Offers a lot of programs and has a good academic reputation.
There are extra fees for EVERYTHING! I even had an $80 "zero credit hour" experience fee.
The basketball, when I was there I saw three teams come in at #1 team in Country.
The weather, nice spring and fall, but winter is brutal with cold rain.

The campus. There are about 20 picturesque spots on the main campus alone. Just being able to walk around and look at all the buildings and landscapes is something that I miss the most.
So of the professors have a very elitist mentality.
My perspective on IU is quite different from the average undergrad or grad student in that I already hold an MBA from a different university and have moved to Bloomington to semi-retire, continuing...
The catch in wanting to audit classes is that you must have the instructor's permission. Furthermore, some departments are quite restrictive in this, even if the instructor is willing. I found this...

It has great natural beauty. Also, some specific academic programs are five-star programs (esp. Kelley School of Business, Maurer School of Law, Jacobs School of Music)
There's absolutely no free/cheap/convenient parking anywhere near the school and the bus system (especially the Bloomington system) can be a bit of a pain.
It's hard to make a Rate for any of the above. It's outstanding for all the choices.
The large campus and the distances to be walked between classes and my dorm room.
In the early 70s IU Bllomington was the ultimate academic and spiritual refuge from the madness that consumed the rest of the world.
There is a too much corn between my home town and paradise.
Everyone is really kind and the scenery of the campus is amazing.
The distance from some buildings can make it difficult to get from class to class. The campus has many tiring hills and some of the dorms seem to be placed very far from the lecture halls.
The campus facilities are the best & most beautiful. I think the academics are great as well. The student life & campus activities were great as well. Of course, IU sports are the best.
I didn't like winter so some of the classes were far to walk to in the winter.
There was always something to do, either on campus or off.
There are many opportunities to get involved in the IU and Bloomington communities. The arts and community events are incredible.
The meeting spaces in my school within the university weren't great. With the economy being tough, I'm not sure my classmates and I were as well-equipped as we should have been.
Diverse student body, lots of good activities for students, BEAUTIFUL campus, and decent faculty who care about teaching. Bloomington is an awesome college town.
Tuition seems to creep higher every year.
The best thing about Indiana University is its diversity in both student body and academics. No matter who you are or what you are interested in doing, there is a place for you at IU. Furthermore...
The only downside to IU is that there is not very much campus involvement as a whole. While there is always an opportunity to get involved, the only organisations that really get involved with...
The best thing about IU is the college atmosphere. It is somewhat hard to explain but there are always people outside playing flag football or frisbee. Also the whole town is catered to its...
There is never a place to park. If you are a freshman you will have absolutely no seniority so you will have to park your car really far away.
The best thing about IU is the diverse community. There is so much to experience here in Bloomington, it's such a rich atmosphere filled with fun people and amazing opportunities!
The worst thing is probably the class size. The introductory courses are packed to the max, but once you get into more specific classes they start to narrow down.
The ability to be from Indiana and still get to experience people and their cultures from around the world.
The weather. It is Indiana, so second semester starts out quite cold.
IU has many things for its students to be proud of. The campus is beautiful and flocked with trees, flowers and nature preserves. Little 500 is the biggest and best college weekend, if not week,...
Although I have never ran into this problem myself, many of my friends have complained about being unable to understand a teacher's lectures because of a language barrier.
This school has a great reputation that is truly deserved.
It is quite spread out so you really have a long walk across campus. It is very beautiful though.
Typical college town; you'll always find people nearby, it's a relatively "safe" place. You won't be afraid of walking alone at night usually (assuming you're walking in a well lit place).
Tuition rises significantly every year, and there is a lack of financial aid from the school. Because it's a large school, the advisors don't seem to care much about your well being. Since it is...
If you don't want to study for classes there are many opportunities to get away from the books. Sports and parties are huge draws for many students.
It is a large university, and with a undergraduate population of 42,000 it is difficult to stand out at times.
