look up any word, like yeet:
 
1.
A horrible university located in Terre Haute. The students walk around like zombies waiting to flunk out and move on to Ivy Tech, or if they do stay it will take them 6-7 years to graduate. The campus "security" act like Nazi's, roaming the campus waiting to throw you into Aushwitz because you forgot your parking pass that day. The professors generally just throw some busy work at you and then have their assistants grade the work, often incorrectly. The campus parking is great, if you like parking 15 miles from where you need to go. Oh, and don't forget the millions of dollars the University spends on athletics, wouldn't want to end the 56 game losing streak for the football, basketball, and baseball teams.
Everyone is walking around with a blank stare on their face. I'm at Indiana State University alright!

Why did my tuition just go up again? Oh, because Indiana State needed a bus system, a new recreation center, a new college of education, and a new bookstore. I guess helping actually pay for an education is out of the question.

2.
A public university in Terre Haute, Indiana that is usually one's back up school to their back up school. No true academic reputation like the other public schools in Indiana. The only people who will go here are those who never tried in high school, causing them to be rejected by Purdue, IU and Ball State, or college drop outs. Hence why it's acronym, ISU, truly means "I Screwed Up."
Random guy: "Where do you go to school?"
Indiana State University student: "I use to go to Purdue, but I couldn't handle it and dropped out, so now I'm at ISU."
Random guy: "What's ISU?"
ISU Student: "I Screwed Up"
