The teachers make themselves available to help students. There are tons of organizations to get involved and the campus is beautiful! I walked onto this campus as a senior in high school and I fell in love! I didn't even waste time or money applying anywhere else! The dorms are really nice too! I definitely suggest living in the dorms freshman year. I love this campus! I even plan to return to graduate school here.


Lots of people complain about there not being anything to do here but I think they just mean there aren't many parties. I personally like that but some people don't.

They have done an excellent job making an initiative with improving the aesthetics of the campus and is definitely a developing school in many facets. Their nursing and all health professions majors seem to be outstanding programs and appear to have excellent local support with two major nearby hospitals. It's location is ideal being the center point of Indianapolis, louisville, and St. Louis.


USI is a suitcase campus which can make student life semi dull on the weekends. Several programs are under developed and in need of restructuring.
