The quality of the education you get here is really reliant on which specific classes you take. I've had some really challenging, forum-based classes where I felt like I learned a lot, including a lot more beyond just the curriculum. I believe some of these classes really helped me become more perceptive and aware in general, but then, on the other end of the spectrum, I've had classes that are just power points that you copy down every day. They are excruciatingly dull, and the material never really fully sinks in. Being in Hutton Honors college (the honors...

    iu has it all . . . world class academics and facilities for music, business, journalism, etc. so much is offered on this amazingly beautiful campus (especially in the spring / fall). if you don't want to join the greek system, you don't have to since there's tons of things to do otherwise. plenty of opportunities to join so many clubs or student organizations. the main downsides i've found is the weak academic advising for underclassmen and the very difficult to use class scheduling system.

    IU has a lot to offer and is well worth the price. There are a multitude of majors for students to explore and find their niche, as well as advisers who work tirelessly to help students find the right fit. I am so glad I chose IU and can't wait to see what this university has in store for me.

    IU's campus tour was amazing and their staff was very helpful when I visited. I enjoyed going to their football game during Game Day for prospective students. I have also heard great things about IU from friends who are students there.

    The professors care about you and want you to succeed. Loads of clubs to choose from, from Harry Potter Society to Culture of Care to Hoosier Gaming Society, everyone is encouraged to get involved. The programs for students like career counseling and also psychological counseling are top notch and really helpful, again they care about you and want you to succeed.
