Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

IUPUI includes two very well known universities: Indiana University and Purdue University. Bringing those two big names to one city makes for urban learning at its best. On the Boilermaker side there are the engineers and scientists weaving mathematics, visual learning, and experimental knowledge into the tapestry of urban society. On the Hoosier side there are sociologists, philosophers, and business professionals walking through the city and calculating the many ways to bring out the human in humanity. The academic opportunities seem endless at IUPUI. Unfortunately, in this environment not every student can decipher what is best for her or himself. Best advice: Utilize the academic advising system!

In addition to the various educational programs, the student-teacher ratio is as attractive as that of a private institution. Students at IUPUI have more access to professors than do their fellow students in Bloomington or Lafayette (where IU and Purdue are based). There are times when it will seem like you’re getting a private education for the cost of a public one. However, there aren’t as many students involved in the learning process at IUPUI as there are at larger universities. Few students become heavily involved in the true academic process because they have work or children to prioritize—but this is not true for every student. There are many who put in a tremendous amount of work in their studies, and they are quickly recognized for their efforts. Some, more advanced, students have stated that classes are too easy at IUPUI.
