    The campus size is perfect, not too big and not too small. It is so close to Mishawaka that it is an easy drive to the mall and other stores.

    I graduated from IU South Bend with my BA in Sociology and now am pursuing my Master's in Social Work (MSW). I have enjoyed all of my time as a student here; however, as a student I have involved myself on campus through student clubs and groups, studying abroad, internships, and working as an RA in student housing. I challenege other current and prospective students to pursue every opportunity available to them through IU as it can only help to broaden their perspective and worldview (and it looks good on their resume, too).

    IUSB won't give you a campus experience like other bigger colleges. There isn't much to do as far as on campus activities.

    I love going to IUSB because of the small campus and class sizes. I love this because I don't get lost in the crowd, like many of my friends are experiencing at other colleges. Even though I don't live on campus, I have gained many friends because many of the students are in the same classes together. They also have a great (free!) work out center, The Student Activity Center that has pool tables, basketball courts, and a gym. This is a great place to hang out and meet new people.
