3 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: Safety should be improved. It's an open campus. It's better not to walk alone at night. There's a shopping mall close to campus and can get there from school by bus. There's a stadium. There's a museum that nearby the campus.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: It's getting more diverse compare to few years ago.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: I have lived in Indianapolis my whole life so I am a little biased.

College Sophomore

Scholarships: I have not yet applied for any financial aid.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: Good restaurants but few choices.

College Sophomore

Nightlife: I don't party. At all.

College Sophomore

Majors: I have not yet been accepted into my school to start my true major, but the path is very clear and accessible.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Lots of pretty girls, but they are dedicated to school.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Have been going here for a year and truly love it. Did not get into activities as much I like to, but definitely plan on changing that.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Lots of opportunity for jobs and internships.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Just do what you know is right and you'll be fine.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: The facilities are all kind of outdated and under appreciated. Many of the buildings are old or have outdated interiors, the library, several of the new buildings like the IT and Law building and a few others are the only impressive parts of campus.

1 College Sophomore

Nightlife: There is nothing for anyone under 21 to do in this city at all. If you are under 21 and don't have anything fun to do at your place, you will be bored, and you will suffer.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have only had trouble with two professors at this school, one was difficult to understand and wasn't very good at teaching, while the other had no skill in their area whatsoever and didn't know how to answer any questions in the class or teach any material. All other experiences I've had with teachers have been pretty positive.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Degrees from this school are certainly valuable, and I'm sure there is a degree here for almost any kind of person looking to get ahead in life.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is kinda pointless. The only real value in it is if you have no friends and want to pay to get some and hang out with them on weekends. All the parties for these groups are extremely boring and only like 10-20 people attend them.

2 College Sophomore

Scholarships: There are almost no scholarships for anyone in my life description, and it has been the most unfair experience of my entire life. I do exceedingly well in school, never drink, do drugs, cause disruptions, or create any kind of negative atmosphere, but still am treated like a loser and a terrible person that has to pay for some kind of terrible act I've done, by slaving away my entire summer and school year working just to barely be able to pay for college and not even be able to have my own apartment practically by age 20. While all this is going on, people that drink, do drugs, do terrible in school, and give it a bad reputation are getting all of their school paid for and have the time of their lives living it up in their own private apartments and doing everything they can to trash their future, only because they are "need based" and wont have a chance without help for no reason. Guess what? I pay my dues and work myself to death constantly just so I can go to this school, while others are complaining that they aren't getting all the extra scholarship money they received for no reason put back in their bank accounts because they had more than enough to pay for school and their housing! I've only gotten one scholarship for $500 per semester at this school, when I feel that I deserve all my tuition to be paid for, as I have worked harder and more professionally than probably 90% of this entire school. I work hard in school, I work hard at a part time job, and I drive for hours each day to attend both. I feel that I deserve some kind of break, and I really just want to enjoy my time in college and learn to do what I love.

2 College Sophomore

Majors: My major is almost a joke. The only reason I'm getting it is because it's the only major that allows me to somewhat do what I'm interested in pursuing. I want to go into music production and graphic design, but my classes for both fields are a total ripoff and are ruining my young life. I took the audio design course expecting to learn how to use current audio design and music production technology, but instead was forced into teaching myself how to use the most useless audio design software I have ever encountered, along with the teacher not helping or having any real skill in the area whatsoever. I seriously could have had a 5 year old teach me the same stuff my teacher in this class taught me because they knew literally nothing. I have hope for future courses to be better this year in the school of music.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: I enjoy the support my teachers and fellow students give me in my program, but have yet to find my area that I am truly accepted in. Too many people in my program are focused on game design and 3D animation, both of which I have no interest in.

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Indy is a big city with a smaller feel--I love the area and always feel safe

1 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: I wasted all my money on this terrible dining hall. I shouldve just saved all my money and got an apartment with a kitchen and made food that was actually edible.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: No football, No interesting basketball, and no school spirit. Basically if you want to enjoy college, don't go here.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: There's a few attractive girls on campus. Almost all of them are already dating people already though so don't get your hopes up. A lot of the guys just like to bro it up and hang out with their fraternities all the time which is just a joke.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: awesome. awesome. awesome. I loooooooooooooooove it.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: This campus is safe and awesome.

Overall, IUPUI has a lot to offer to a lot of different people. The diversity of students at IUPUI is an illustration of what the University has to offer. Everyone is catered to in some way, whether it is through ESL learning, studies abroad, 24-hour computer facilities, wireless access, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. service projects, resume assistance, and so much more. IUPUI may not be a traditional campus with frat parties and hookups, but students really seem to appreciate its function and purpose, which is to promote professionalism, diversity, and urban learning.

With praise comes the reality—students shouldn’t go to a college thinking that everything will always be great. As with any university, IUPUI has its major flaws. As far as the physical campus itself is concerned, athletic facilities are not yet to the standard that the students can accept, parking is way below the needs of the students, and campus food is not worth the paper plates that it is served on. Too harsh? Maybe, but through the student reviews, they have shown how much they truly value their school. The professors, overall, seem to be doing a nice job, and computer service is great at IUPUI. As long as you take the bad with the good, IUPUI will be, at least, a beneficial and educational experience for you.
