3 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: Its a college town so it is alright in some aspects and not in others.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Overall this campus is pretty chill.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: I really do not know as I have not looked into this yet, but they do have job fairs and internship fairs on campus.

3 College Senior

Campus Strictness: It is not the worst, but it is not the best.

5 College Senior

Health & Safety: The campus and state/county police are great. They are there where you need them and the ones that have met are very easy to talk to and easy going as long as you don't break the law. There are also blue phones for emergencies all over campus and they have a quick response time when. they are activated.

4 College Senior

Nightlife: There are a lot of variety of bars and clubs that are attached to them. There are also sports bars for the ultimate fans.

3 College Senior

Majors: I have not personally had an internship, but from what I have heard the opportunities are great, but the pay is not.

4 College Senior

Majors: My major is great! I switched three times and I am glad that I did. It is easy to get into and the professors and staff are amazing. It is also a great minor to get into and will supplement a lot of other majors.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: I can't really say anything about the Greek system since the only group that I am in is an honors society.

4 College Senior

Diversity: There is a lot of diversity on campus. A whole dorm building is set aside just for students who come here from pther countries to study abroad.

3 College Senior

Campus Dining: Dining is not the best on campus, but renovations are underway so hopefully that will get better in the future. In the mean times there are great food places just a five minute walk from campus on the main street. There is a.o's a great variety.

4 College Senior

Facilities: The library and student centers are great. The library is open 24 hours Sunday through Thursday and has a coffee shop open till 11 for a late night snack or a caffeine fix. The equipment in the main workout area is top notch and caters to the average student and sports individual.

4 College Senior

Athletics: The attendance for football games are massive and basketball as week. I would not know about the others. I am not a college sports person.

4 College Senior

Academics: The program I am in is great. The instructors are the most helpful and nicest people in the world. You just have to be unafraid to ask questions.

4 College Senior

Academics: There are a variety of courses that you can take for liberal studies classes and a myriad of different languages that can be taken if your major requires it.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Off-campus housing is definitely cheaper than on campus, if you know where to look, and there is a great variety.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: I currently live off-campus and I really enjoy it. I live in a development that has a mixture of college students as well as families. I am about a 5 minute drive to campus. The location is very nice for me. I did not find my housing through the school, I did my own individual research to find it. The pros to living off-campus is the freedom, privacy, and independence. The cons to living off-campus is the distance to hanging out with friends is usually a drive away, the process to getting approved, and the commute. The cost is pretty expensive for most of the places off-campus, an average is around $2,000 a semester. It is cheaper than on-campus though, but you have to either get financial aid so you can pay month to month or you have to be able to afford it immediately. The convenience is great in this town because everything is pretty close and the transportation is easy with or without a car because they have a bus that drives all around town for students. The landlord I have is pretty good, they are friendly and fix things if they are not working. The parking is a lot and it is a pretty safe area. The school has a website that lists several different off-campus housing options, but they are all pretty expensive. In order to find affordable (at least in my budget) housing you need to do individual research. Overall, I love living off-campus.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: There are so many different types of girls here it's great whatever you are looking for there's a good chance you'll find it although I have to stay as someone from the DMV the PA girls are a little odd sometimes

College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: I didn't eat off of campus expect at gaint eagle which is the best because it's close and has good prices for food

1 College Sophomore

Scholarships: For out of state students it suck I am a out of state student and wasn't awarded anything but a Pell grant I feel I have somewhat of a special condition. I am a minority, out of state student, first generation college student, raised by a single father who makes under 40,000 dollars a year it was very discouraging when the school didn't give me any grants my first year or make me aware of anything I could do to try to help my situation as far as finances. In this returning year I am a sophomore I made the deans list in my second semester and have a 3.3 gpa now and they awarded me less money in my finical aid. If you are out of state and need finical aid don't come to this school it sucks for in state though I think it is much better from what my friends I have met here that are from PA

College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Havent looked into this area don't want to give anyone info on a area I don't have insight on

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: The town is friendly towards most people

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: There is basically white, black, Asian and some Spanish some people think the campus is soo diverse it's diverse enough but it's really not super diverse

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek students are popular you get to know a lot of people and many non greeks want to be In the greek world being in Greek life has benefits and can be time consuming depending on what time you join but if you want to be involved in lots of things and are very social its good. Getting in is a real B..... but its like that in most places

College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I didn't stay off campus and I am staying on campus again this year I have some friends staying off campus. It is defiantly cheaper but the houses fill up quick that are close to campus because everyone staying off campus wants the close one you can usually have an easy time finding housing further off campus at all times of the year. If you want to save money I would defiantly recommend staying off campus though

Picking the right college often leaves students stranded between two choices: sacrificing a well-rounded education for a cheaper school, or ponying up the cash for a private education with a lot of extras. In a way that many other public schools simply aren't, Indiana University of Pennsylvania is honestly the best of both worlds. IUP students get a quality education that rivals many smaller private colleges at the public university price. Although Indiana isn’t a major city, and the small-town atmosphere is something that students have to take into consideration, the town is picturesque and fun if you know where to look. Be sure to come visit before you commit to IUP, and keep an open mind when you come. Indiana has a way of growing on you.

The student body at IUP is fairly diverse, but every student can find his niche. Although 15,000 seems like a lot of students, the campus itself doesn’t feel that large. Because it draws students from across the nation and around the world, there’s something for everyone, whether that’s a student organization, a club, a sport, a Greek organization, or an extracurricular activity. You’ll find people and things at IUP that will expand your perspective on the world and challenge your expectations. As far as academics, IUP offers more than 100 majors and is the only public university in Pennsylvania to offer a doctoral program as well. Even for freshmen, classes aren't unmanageable. The professors know what they’re talking about and make class as interesting as they can, and most classes have no more than 100 students in them (even gen-eds). There’s a reason that alumni are proud to call IUP their alma mater. Few universities offer what Indiana University of Pennsylvania does for such a fair price.
