Love the campus! So much history and beauty. So many students are willing to help for anything you need. Everyone seems so nice, even the squirrels. Food on campus is good too. Would recommend a walk around the campus.
Wonderful university to attend. I love Indiana University. My only regret was not going there all 4 years in college (transferred there). This is easily one of the most, if not the most, beautiful campuses out there. Staff and students are all friendly and the Big Ten culture is great! GO IU! Go HOOSIERS!
