The potholes are absolutely atrocious, and the trains become your soundscape, so grab some sound cancelling headphones and pay your car insurance.

A person moving to Muncie should know while it sits in Indiana, the political nature of the town skews left. As the home of a major college, Ball State University, and as a former major industrial city, Democrat Party politics is well represented. On leaving the city and traveling into the country, the opposite becomes true.

Muncie, the home of Ball State University, is relatively sleepy for a college town, at least compared to cities with big-name schools like Bloomington (Indiana University) or Ann Arbor (University of Michigan). However, the comparative lack of bustle, and the charm of being here, makes it easier to focus on studying at Ball State or one of its attached K-12 schools, Burris Laboratory School and the Indiana Academy.
