3 College Junior

Greek Life: The greek life here at IUPUI is progressively getting bigger and bigger.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: I got the twenty first century scholarship for four years of tuition and this upcoming year my fifth year I will need to pay for, but am hoping to get some financial aid since my parents do not contribute anything because my father will not get a job.

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: I love living here in Indianapolis, the city is beautiful, there is always something to do and something to see!

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: There has been a lot of crime on or around the parameters of campus that makes it scary especially for girls to walk alone if we have a late class in the evening or something, but we do have an escort service that we could call as well.

5 College Junior

Majors: My major is nursing and I think this is the best campus around for nursing because of all of the hospitals we have right here on campus!

4 College Junior

Majors: I think at times the things we do can seem like busy work and some stuff we learn just to learn for a test. Overall, it has been a great learning experience, just really busy and stressful.

3 College Junior

Transportation: Parking is hectic and the cost of parking is really expensive. Unless you have a parking pass it is almost impossible to come to campus if you have a meeting or something without having to pay a lot

Athletics: Again it's a commuter campus

3 College Sophomore

Computers: Printers sometimes don't work and it wastes time

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There needs to be better lighting on campus paths

3 College Sophomore

Weather: The weather has its up and down. The spring and fall are wonderful times to be walking around campus. Winter can be brutal especially when walking far distances to different classes.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: There are so many ways that IUPUI shows diversity around the campus. There are educational classes, clubs, and signs around campus. Some courses even allow for the discussion of diversity. It is important for everyone to be aware of the diversity of a college campus.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are lots of dining options off campus at IUPUI. Most of the places around offer student discounts with your student ID, or jagtag. This allows students to purchase food at reasonable prices.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: The Exercise Science program has three main requirements to enter the program. They are fairly simple and attainable. The program is important in that you take the correct courses to be able to enter the program.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: The program has a lot of advantages over other schools. There are more courses related to the field of study. This will help better prepare me for my future career.

3 College Senior

Computers: Obviously there are a lot of students streaming so the connection is a little slow, but overall the computers and facilities are great.

3 College Senior

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!

2 College Senior

Nightlife: Nothing goes on at night. This school is not a party school like its older brother IU.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: There are plenty of places to eat. It is a matter of what fits your fancy. You can get just about anything delivered to you through orderup.com a wonderful cite created by two of our graduates.

4 College Senior

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.

4 College Senior

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.

3 College Senior

Campus Strictness: The strictness of campus is pretty self explanatory. Don't do something that would equate to a bad consequence. Ex. don't drink on campus if you're under age.

3 College Senior

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

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.
