    I would suggest to future students to take initiative in their learning. Ball State has numerous resources to expand students experiences within their majors. It is up to the student to take advantage of those resources. Students should also take advantage of professors' office hours and the tutoring center. Ball State wants to ensure everyone does as well as they can.

    My biggest tip is to be absolutely sure that this is where you want to attend. I have been happy with Ball State, but I think I made the wrong choice and I am planning to transfer. I would also recommend living on campus, because I commute, and I have found it very hard to keep up with everything that happens on campus

    Definitely visit campus. This school is probably quite a bit different than what you would imagine at first. For me personally, the size of the campus didn't really click with me until I went on my visit, and that was something I needed to see. Also, if you visit as an expected student, they will give you food, fam. Like, for free. If not, you have to pay for your lunch even if you do decide to eat on campus.

    Do all you can, early. Look in to financial aid and scholarship earlier than you think. Take a campus tour, earlier than you think. You'll need a lot of time to make a final decision.
