What Students Are Saying

3.97 Average Rating
Do not bring a relationship to college. You are starting a new chapter in your life and you are bringing something that is going to put a lot of stress on that relationship.
Open up to people around here. You will make a lot of great, new friends and it sucks to have to go home every weekend just to see people.
If you can, find a roommate before you move into your dorm. I ended up with a roommate that was just horrid. I think I would have been a lot better off living with someone I knew and was friends with than a complete stranger.
If you are going to drink, be smart about it. Majors dealing with nursing, education, law, etc., you can lose everything if you are arrested for drinking.

get involved as soon as you can (preferably the first few weeks). you meet so many new and interesting people, people you never in a million years thought you'd be friends with. this isn't high school anymore, so you don't have to have your little cliches anymore. you're aloud to be your own person,choose to do whatever you want. think being in the ball room dancing club sounds fun? or humans versus zombies? go for it, chances are you're not going to be the only one to show up for the first meeting. =]
Halie from Avon, IN
Get out of your comfort zone, find an organization that relates to what you like/want to do after graduating/getting your degree and work to better that organization in some way. In turn, you will better yourself.
Tyrone from Fort Wayne, IN
Apply for scholarships early! Use the school website it is very easy to navigate and if very helpful! Residence life does a pretty good job of matching roommates in my experience, so don't worry too much if you can't find a roommate. Use the MITS bus it is free for students and you can at least get to the most critical places in muncie without a car or the long hike out to the football parking lot! If your a freshman just keep in mind that the football parking lot is a long way off and you can't park on campus except on weekends, so a bike might be better for freshman year if you are living on campus.

Moving away from home will be the hardest adjustment.
Find an organization that you will like and enjoy.
Be prepared for Muncie weather-it seems to rain a lot.
bring quarters-they equal your life.

Prospective students should remember to vary their dining options. While it's quick and easy to go to the closest place every night, just remember that any food can make you sick if you have too much of it. Also, if you are in a major that has any type of studio, be prepared to lose sleep. Not everything can get done in a four-hour class session, and if you try it, you (and your professors) may not be happy with the results. Just remember that there are some majors that are easier than others... but you should really pick what suits you.
Catherine from Muncie, IN
Don't come to campus with you mind set on one specific major. Be open to trying new things and meeting new people. Join a club or organization, maybe even a team sport. Don't be afraid to ask for help, that's why Ball State offers free tutoring services. Get out and be active there's always something new to do. Enjoy yourself, this is college this is where dreams are made!
Marissa from Dana, IN
It is important to always be yourself: when looking for a school, applying for scholarships, and becoming your own person. Ball State is great if that is you!
Make sure to be diligent in your search. You will find the right school for you.
Rebecca from Kokomo, IN
Ball State University is a great place with a beautiful campus that has many resources for prospective students. During orientation, all of the staff were extremely helpful and I learned many things that I did not know about the school (and I have lived in Muncie all my life)!
Jared from Muncie, IN
Keep an open mind when coming to college. If you don't like any of your classes and just aren't feeling the school it's ok to transfer I know several people who have transfered to BSU from other schools and vice versa. BSU is a fantastic place to attend school. Oh and pack an umbrella and rain boots... I promise you will need them.
