Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2016

Terre Haute is not the most exciting place to live, but it is very safe. The dietetics program at ISU is accredited by ACEND.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2016

I have been accepted in the FNP program. The admission process was easy to understand. Student services for the program are great. My advisor reviewed the entire program's progression and explained each semester and what to expect. The Bursar's office has not been as helpful. Long waits on hold without answers.

Degree: Teaching
Graduation Year: 2014

I have really enjoyed my time in this program so far. I would highly recommend the program to qualifying prospective students who have earned a baccalaureate degree in a content area and would like to become licensed teachers in Indiana. The people in charge of the program are very helpful and accessible. The instructors are qualified and, for the most part, more than competent. It is a challenging and engaging route to teacher licensure. Because of the nature of the program, the classes are generally online, though there are a few on-campus meetings during the course of the program. This makes communication less natural for some students. I have not had any problems with this, as I am accustomed to communicating largely by e-mail and telephone.

Degree: Higher Education
Graduation Year: 2013

The pro's of the Student Affairs and Higher Education program are the practicum experiences and required assistantship. Having a cohort that you take all your classes with is also very beneficial, almost like a grad school family. The only negative thing is the geographical location of Terre Haute. It's not the most diverse and fun place to reside.

Degree: Photography
Graduation Year: 2015

I really like the photography program. The campus does have a high crime rate after dark. I've only been attending a couple of months.

Degree: English
Graduation Year: 2011

I enjoyed the program after the first semester. The first semester is like writing and grammar boot camp to see who can cut the program or not. Students write three lengthy papers that are not like anything in the undergraduate English program. Whomever survives theses core classes moves on to the classes that are more relaxed and the lucky ones get to be teaching assistants. My completed all of the English lit classes then realized I wanted to get the specialization in creative writing. I was happy with that part of the program as I was allowed to submit a creative writing project for graduation. After tons of rewrites, I graduated finally. Overall, this was a good program, but a few instructors are stuck in their ways and want to to write with their methods for creative writing.

The sports management program at Indiana State University is great. They offer students a complete insight on what it takes to become a sports manager in the sports world. As a former basketball player their are many things that one did not know about. Taking up sports management program will allow one to expand knowledge to young children and adults who may be seeking to play basketball in high school and collegiate levels.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2013

My graduate program is a M.Ed in School Counseling. The biggest asset of this program is the amount of networking that takes place. Whether it is the hands on fieldwork/Prac/Internship in the field or the professional development conferences and guest speakers that are invited to come to our classes, this program has immersed me into the educational scene. Additionally, the program director is incredibly dedicated to her students and goes to incredible lengths to ensure your success. The supervision provided by the university is unmatched and the development of the cohort into a working body of professionals is phenomenal. The program is geared toward working adult professionals in a distance format, and as such, you can go through the program at your own pace when it comes to on-site hours. The rigor of the program still leaves you with the knowledge and ability to be effective within your community after graduation. The con's of the program relates to how the program was set up to function. Based on the amount of time spent on campus during the summers, it is evident that this program was set up for teachers. Most working adults outside of the educational setting do not have the amount of time available to them over the summer to dedicate that amount of time on campus - especially if they are distance students.

Indiana State University's Student Affairs graduate program is excellent. The program requires an assistantship as well as three practicum experiences in areas of your interest. This type a of practical programs provides the most hands on, real life experiences that you can get as a Student Affairs Professional. I can say that the program made me feel like I was well prepared to go into the work field and be successful. Because I really enjoyed the program, it is hard for me to point out flaws in the program.
