Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2017

Ball State is by far one of the most affordable colleges with a faculty that is always willing to help. Both my undergrad and graduate degrees have been from BSU and I do not regret a single step in the process. My professors liked to be active in our lives and were always available to help us when needed.
