Overall Rating

Ball State University is a great school, the one thing i like most is that way the campus is set up, it is so easy to get around and its always a clean environment. The library is set almost directly in the center and everything else spans out, and there is always places and people to help you.


Overall Rating

If it's good enough for David Letterman, it's good enough for me! Seriously though, I am planning to go into the Sports Medicine/Trainer field, and the program at Ball State is top notch. I have investigated several institutions of higher education and Ball State is at the top.
