Description of campus life: Although it is a medium-sized campus, Indiana State offers 250 clubs and organizations to get students involved in campus life.  The campus is fairly small, and the farthest walk from a residence hall to a class is around ten minutes. Terre Haute also offers many fun things to do downtown.

Quote from student who visited:  “I liked the fact that class sizes stayed under 100! I also liked that the residence halls group people who have the same major or academic section.  I did not like how congested the dining hall was, and it was difficult to find parking. I am fairly interested in ISU’s PA program!”
