5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Indiana University-Purdue University was an overall fantastic choice, especially with my specific major. In-state tuition is reasonably priced for a University. Housing is overpriced, but great nonetheless, but I recommend off-campus.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Indiana University-Purdue University offers a plethora of career centers and also helps build resumes.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I adore the education courses freshman take in regards to alcohol and sexual assault. Many other Universities should consider making such courses mandatory as well.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I'm not the biggest fan of on-campus housing due to personal taste and personal space.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Personally, I have yet to join a fraternity, but I'm looking into it after a friend of mine wouldn't stop boasting.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: School spirit is a large part of IUPUI; though, the spirit doesn't lie solely in our athletics.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Indiana University-Purdue University is situated perfectly in Indianapolis. There is plenty to do, not to mention the campus surpasses scenic. The student body is rather diverse and IUPUI offers a variety of organizations and clubs. It's hard not to find something you enjoy on-campus.

2 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: Generally the campus environment is safe. Every now and again there is a rash of armed robberies. The main issue regarding security that needs to be addressed is the widespread hacking of email accounts, and online activity that occurs while using computers at University Library- leading to subsequent stalking.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: The most important advice I can give prospective students is to research the labor market if your aim is to get into a specific field and gain an internship when you become an upperclassmen.

3 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: The most buzz regarding athletics around lately has been the Pro Soccer team that utilizes the campus field on Saturday. Aside from that IUPUI had a very competitive Basketball program under Ron Hunter whose son recently went pro. The tradition is now being carried on by a former player under Coach Bob Knight.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: We have a wide range of courses to take, I feel like we have whatever someone could possibly want. The problem is possibly having a bad professor. So I always use now.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The safety isn't up to par, I remember in one month alone we got so many crime alerts.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I actually like living on campus, and I love where I lived last year which is Riverwalk. I plan on living over there again this year.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I think it's great, and I've been contemplating on joining greek life. I never hear them being downtalked, you always hear people saying they want to join.

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: My school isn't big on sports at all, the fan support sucks. We don't even have a football team.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I hate that the school isn't big on sports, I feel like I could connect with people there more if we were big on them. I also love that they are big academic wise.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Professors are people too, so sometimes they will make mistakes or mess up, but they are also there for you if have questions. If you take online courses do the work, so that you don't fall behind. There are wide ranges of majors here at IUPUI that can benefit so many and a good amount of minors as well. Class sizes are small to medium. Some may be larger depending on the class that you take.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: From what I hear advisers can help you with a proper direction or path that your interested in. Most people who go through internships or part time jobs have been overall happy. There is a service that can connect you with internships here or abroad as well as job and whether you qualify.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: We are located near the heart of downtown, so there are going to be some who are going to commit crimes, but I feel like the campus is doing a good job of keeping things safe. The campus police work hand in hand with the police department if anything bad happens. There are several hospitals that occupy space right near the university, so if you get hurt it is not far away. There are campus phones that are blue with a light on top that are there just in case you do not feel safe and need someone to pick you up. For mental health there are therapists located near campus where the first few sessions are free. And most of all everyone, from my experiences, will care if something bad happens, so do not be afraid to ask for help.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Some people like living at the tower or ball hall, but I heard it gets tiring after a while. They have other off campus housing options, but it is not the greatest. I have to live in an apartment that close enough to walk to campus and if you do not feel like walking or live farther than a mile or so, you can take the shuttles if they are near. The university has just built another dorm, so maybe that will be a good experience.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Only know a few people who are in Greek life, but they have pretty good parties and the girls seem to like it when they join one. However, Greek life is not on campus, so the houses are somewhere near the school. From my experience they treat people well, but can seem clique-y. So if you want in on a party, knowing someone is the key unless noted otherwise.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Honestly this is more of a school for learning for my intended major, but there is the soccer field and basketball. We have a great gym at the natatorium that has a swimming pool. Other than that, I don't know much else, yet I am sure that everything here is great.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Although I put the rating at 3 stars, that may change soon as I get into a field that I probably will enjoy better. However, there some teachers that are not the greatest, yet there are others passionate enough that if the material is boring, then they definitely make up for that negative. People are generally congenial towards each other and do not mind if a total stranger asks them where a class is located. Here, everyone has the same stresses about courses and know that it can be a difficult time for a person, so basically everyone will know at least where your coming from in that aspect. Don't expect to be coddled in the classes because you are here to learn. Turn in your stuff on time and there won't be any problems. If something bad happens, the Professors generally understand and will require a note. The campus center is a fun place to hang out and you can meet so many new people from around the world, with a lot of different backgrounds. Its not so bad, but is getting better as they expand. It is what college should be: where you have the opportunity to open your eyes to knowledge or new experiences, just make sure to pay attention.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Most professors are great and care for their students.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Being located downtown there are many places to get part-time jobs are internships related to various fields.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Overall, IUPUI has a lot to offer to a lot of different people. The diversity of students at IUPUI is an illustration of what the University has to offer. Everyone is catered to in some way, whether it is through ESL learning, studies abroad, 24-hour computer facilities, wireless access, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. service projects, resume assistance, and so much more. IUPUI may not be a traditional campus with frat parties and hookups, but students really seem to appreciate its function and purpose, which is to promote professionalism, diversity, and urban learning.

With praise comes the reality—students shouldn’t go to a college thinking that everything will always be great. As with any university, IUPUI has its major flaws. As far as the physical campus itself is concerned, athletic facilities are not yet to the standard that the students can accept, parking is way below the needs of the students, and campus food is not worth the paper plates that it is served on. Too harsh? Maybe, but through the student reviews, they have shown how much they truly value their school. The professors, overall, seem to be doing a nice job, and computer service is great at IUPUI. As long as you take the bad with the good, IUPUI will be, at least, a beneficial and educational experience for you.
