I chose this school because it was a small campus that was welcoming and had a positive atmosphere. IUPUI is unique in that it has an equal amount of commuters as on-campus residents, so I get many opportunities to meet people in the areas surrounding Indianapolis, as well as out of state students. The Campus Center here is a wonderful student hub for exciting activities throughout the year. Each time I walk in, there are different events like live gigs, games, and prize opportunities. All of my professors have given much time to help students one on one when asked, and provide the resources necessary to succeed. The community is so supportive. I wouldn't choose another institution for anything!

I transferred here 2nd semester of my freshman year (my previous school was too expensive). Considering I am a science major, having to pay only about $10,000/year is an incredible deal! Most of the professors I've had genuinely want to help the students succeed and will be more than happy to help you if you meet them halfway. A few of them seem to have issues with communication (whether through email or Canvas) but most of them communicate within a timely manner. While I can't speak for everybody on campus, the classes here are difficult but doable if you put in the effort.

Indianapolis is surprisingly active. While it's no Chicago, there are several things to do, both on and off campus. What makes it better is that, while still a major city, it still feels small enough that things aren't overwhelming. There are different cultural districts to explore, an extensive walking trail through the city, the Colts and Pacers play in locations that are about 8 minutes from campus, not to mention the ease of access to the Indy500.

There are a ton of colleges, more big name companies than most would expect (i.e. Rolls Royce and Cummins). There's opportunity, growth and at the same time, a very present history here. I love it!
