5 College Freshman

Computers: There are plenty of computers in many different locations around campus to accommodate students preference in environment.

5 College Freshman

Weather: I love how hands on my university is and how involved the students, as well as the professors, are. I think that the University of Indianapolis combines service and education to prepare their students for their futures in many different fields.

4 College Junior

Drug Safety: I'm don't live on campus

3 College Junior

Parking: just make sure you register you car with the campus

4 College Junior

Facilities: the small class sizes, the teachers, and campus

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The ratio is perfect here, and everyone comes from varying segments of life. I've met a fantastic girl here, who even shares the same goals to work for MSP as me, which is saying something. Everyone is outgoing and those who aren't don't stick around for long.

2 College Freshman

Nightlife: This is a great school, but by no means a party college. Most student's simply head off campus for that type of scene, which works great for those who don't.

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Drugs are pretty slim on campus, and those that do use are using Marijuana, which nobody particularly minds so long as its outside and away. Even that is VERY slim, however, and being a dry campus means alcohol is very slim as well.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The rooms are exactly at hotel level, but the people make up for the so-so conditions more than enough to forgive it.

2 College Freshman

Transportation: There isn't any to speak of outside of IndyGo, which rarely goes anywhere college students are looking to get out to. The only time any real transportation is available is during events, and even then its mediocre.

2 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: UIndy is in the middle of the aging part of the city, full of decaying roads and old neighborhoods. The area had amazing potential, and its perfect for a service based university who focuses on improving lives. I would live near the university if the city would supply any money to help improve the area, which they will never do.

4 College Freshman

Campus Dining: While repetitive in nature, the Polk Service offers awesome food. I haven't had a single day that I can't find something good to eat and filling.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The campus is amazing, and the classes a genuine pleasure to attend. What really brings UIndy down for me has been the lazy attitude of the financial aid office and the people there. This particular office is absolutely no help at all to struggling students who need guidance to afford their education. Met with icy stares and "good luck" I have never left that particular department any degree of happy. In fact, each time I'm there I just ask myself again why it is I even bother, until I step outside and see my beautiful campus.

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: UIndy has a great balance of safety and comfort for the students on campus. I have never felt persecuted by any officers or staff, and I have yet to hear of anyone complain of unfair treatment. They will ticket and fine, but they do so with respect and without demeaning anyone in the process.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Off-campus living by far is more popular than staying on campus. Commuting, however, is the most popular option for savings fro the students that live close by. Between apartments and house-sharing, most students figure out a quality option amongst their friends. Safety is probably the worst aspect, given the neighborhood and proximity to the city, but it still isn't considerable.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are plenty of locations off campus to grab a bite to eat, but they are pretty much all fast food. There isn't much to brag about in terms of original and amazing food, besides Enzo's Pizza, which is frankly overpriced in terms of a pizza place. Everything else worth consideration is a good distance away in Greenwood.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Crime here on campus is very minimal, so much so that the primary police concern is speeding down Hannah. Security phones are prevalent and easy to access, but never really used. Most of the crimes of concern happen outside of campus grounds, but given the nature of the layout, out of campus individuals come and go pretty easily. Any real issues are dealt with very effectively by the campus police, though they can be a bit useless for other matters such as escort or locking one's keys in their car.

5 College Freshman

Academics: The academics at UIndy are fantastic. The Professors are interactive, class sizes small, and the curriculum concise. Registration runs smoothly and without frustration so long as the servers are working. The University has more study abroad and non-traditional programs than I could care to list, but if a student has an interest it is surely there.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Honestly most of the strictness is because it is a Methodist affiliated school. Most of the rules are to respect the church and respecting yourself.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: The parties are off campus. I don't party so I really can't answer much for this. Transportation to downtown is getting better.

5 College Sophomore

Computers: There are computer labs all over the place and printing in the labs. The printing is the best part because its already set in your account so you just swipe and go. There is even printing in the residents halls until midnight. Some of the majors even have special labs and printing areas. You don't really need a personal computer but it is convenient to have. WIFI is in all of the residence halls and building but its not very goodwhle walking on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: We have campus police and they will escort you back to your dorm on campus if it gets late and you are uncomfortable. We also have a blue light system that goes directly to campus police. Sometimes they go ticket happy which is ridiculous. But they are friendly people. A lot of people complain that they don't see them working very often but we don't seem to have many problems. They also have a text alert system which is cool and helpful.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: We get so much extra experience than other schools and we get to start so early with working in our field. My major is athletic training and we get to work with the high schools and some of the other colleges and universities in the area. Our program is a family and a lot is expected of us. We have to maintain good grades to their standards or repeat the class. The workload is a lot but we understand that it is going to be that why best we have one of the best undergrad programs in the Midwest.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I got scholarship money for academics from the school but thing are still a bit difficult to handle. I know some of my friends have had an absolute terrible time with it and I would love to see that change. State aid and the schools own aid is not a problem its the outside aid that is difficult for them.

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: I don't think I've ever really seen drugs on campus most of the parties and things are off campus and kids go there to participate in those kinds of activities. UIndy is a dry campus so that's really the only option.Campus police does a good job other the weekends to control the off campus parties that are close to campus.
