The best thing about IUB is the people you get to meet. I've met so many wonderful people who share common interests as me. It's large but the large campus allows you to explore your many oppurtunities. When I tell people I go to IUB they automatically assume that I'm a huge partier, which is far from the truth. I spend a lot of time in my residence hall hanging out with my friends or studying. Bloomington is a very lovely college town. That's what made me come here in the first place. Kirkwood is a really neat place to go to get food, hang out, and shop. There is a lot of school pride here at IUB. There are plenty of fans at the sporting events and people seem to rally well for certain events. The IU Purdue football game in 2007 is a memory that will never leave me, we won. Smoking on campus is a huge complaint, something that was supposedly aboloished, however, students still smoke on campus.
At the moment, I do not have a favorite class or a least favorite class. They all are pretty equal this semester. My professors do know my name. During large lectures, participation is not frequent because it is usually a lecture, but during discussion sections, there is usually pretty decent amounts of student participation. Students study based on their work load, I think it is hard to judge the amount each student studies, it depends really on their work ethics.
IUB is a fairly diverse campus. In most of my classes, there is a group from every racial and religious background. This makes discussion more interesting and allows for students to learn about all types of culture. However, some of my classes are not diverse at all and consist mainly of white middle class males and females.
The Best Things
The oppurtunities that are available to any student here.
The Worst Things
The smoking policy that is not enforced very well.
