    I LOVE IU! I really really do! It's wonderful for the following reasons -You can find a job on campus pretty easily. There are so many cool places (clothing shops, coffee shops, food shops, gyms, etc...) and you are able to apply to all of them. You can specifically request an application if you are in need of tuition money. It's wonderful! -The food won't burn a hole through your stomach. I went to four different high schools. I know what bad food tastes like. I can assure you, the food is pretty wonderful in the majority of the college dorms! -There are tons of places to live both on and off campus. If you don't want to live on campus, you can request a housing exemption [they require freshmen to live on campus if they don't request a housing exemption]. I haven't heard too many complaints about the dorms. The worst thing I've heard is that the older buildings don't have air conditioning. So word to the wise- bring a fan or air conditioner. -It's so diverse that I think anyone and everyone can feel comfortable here! There are mixed people, White people, Black people, Latino people, Asian people, some Amerindians, people from the Middle East! It's great! There are also a variety of churches and religious groups you can become a part of. Catholic? Muslim? LDS? Anything else? There is a place for you here! And the races here tend to get a long. It isn't one of those places where people of different races and religions avoid each other. We blend pretty well! There are plenty of foreign students here too!

  • Nov-16-2011 I am researching this school and have not visited the campus

    I am not a social person and IU is known as a party school so I am not entirely sure I would enjoy it there.
