I absolutely love my school! They always have some kind of activities going on where you can expand your social circle and make new friends! The staff, for the most part, is really approachable and fair. I do not live on campus, but I have heard nothing bad about the dorms besides the WiFi, which is probably a given with all those people connected to it at once. They even hold multiple events during finals to help with the stress. The campus is always so clean and the lawn is never less than perfect. The only bad thing is that for commuters, the parking garages and lots fill up very fast and it is basically the Hunger Games getting a parking spot as someone leaves from class. But overall, if I had to pick again, I would not even second guess myself!

There are actually a decent number and variety of dining locations quite close to campus. Cost tends to be average overall, but gives place for both day to day and more fancy eating. Quality is pretty good everywhere except maybe the McDonalds on Coliseum, which always forgets part of your order. Locations are convenient, since the school is right next to the downtown area. Several places give student discounts, but you may have to ask (not always obvious). S'barros at Glenbrrok mall is amazing, you have to go there! If you have a little extra cash and want some great Chinese food, House of Hunan is absolutely for you.

My school has so many different opportunities to get involved around campus. I like that it has a small town feel so the campus is not very large compared to the Indiana University campus. It's also a lot cheaper than many other colleges. There are many times when they are giving free food for us students who have no money! There are so many types of clubs and extracurriculars to get involved that you can never be bored. They offer help and free tutoring for every class so you can always make sure you pass your classes. If I could do it all over again, I would definitely be here at IPFW.
