Weather: Indiana weather is very wishy-washy. I day it'll be 75 degrees the next it's snowing. You have to be prepared for just about any weather.

3 College Senior

Athletics: The sports aren't that significant if you aren't an athlete, but if you're on the swim team that is huge. This campus is known for its amazing natatorium which has had several Olympic swimmers swim in it. Including Michael Phelps!

Health & Safety: There is a health center that is very convenient to get to. It's located at the center of the campus. The police are there if you need. The school offers a police assisted walk to your car program for those late night classes. The campus also provides emergency posts in case you are in danger run over to the post and an officer will be there immediately.

Scholarships: If you apply for financial aid you'll get. Now it may not be a grant or a scholarship it'll probably be a loan, but it's still financial aid.

Off-Campus Housing: Finding a place isn't difficult, but pricing could be a little high depending on where you're from.

Academics: Most of the professors have an extensive background on the field they teach. Most of them are attentive and give the time you need to succeed.

Greek Life: If you are involved with greek life you'll receive plenty of opportunities to do fundraising or volunteer work. Otherwise, the party aspect is very low key.

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.
