4 College Freshman

Greek Life: I have no interest in joining a sorority.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I have yet to attend any of my school's sporting events.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: What makes my school unique is the fact that is in the heart of downtown Indianapolis. The students and staff who attend come from all over the state, country, and world. I would choose this school again for its diversity and successful programs.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The professors know what they are talking about and they teach efficiently

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It might be hard to get an internship or a job that has to do with one's career choice because employers want experience but no one is willing to give inexperienced applicants a chance.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Students have the option to call state police or campus police. At night, a student can call a campus police officer to be escorted home.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I have lived in two of IUPUI's residence halls. Ball Hall, the oldest residence hall on campus was not very anything; it was not very spacious or clean or convenient in terms of where to get food and distance from campus. River Walk Apartments, on the other hand, is spacious and it has perks such as washers and drivers in every apartment as opposed to them being on every floor. I also like having my own personal bathroom.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I do not know much about Greek life because it is not well-advertised.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: There is soccer for boys and girls, and that is pretty popular because there is no football team. I would enjoy athletics more if there was a football team.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My school is unique because at other colleges/universities, no one cares how well a random person is doing, but I my school there are a lot of communities that keep the students from drowning or becoming to overwhelmed. There are also too many resources on campus for a person to fail.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: It's a school in the heart of downtown, so that attracts a decent amount of crime.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Being downtown housing is very very expensive. The campus housing is a monopoly. They charge more money than other colleges to live in the dorms. The apartments near campus are overpriced.

1 College Sophomore

Greek Life: There are no actual frat or sorority houses due to the location of the campus. Most people think it's pretty lame to be involved in Greek life because they have no actual meeting place.

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: Athletics is not the central focus at IUPUI like other colleges. Barely anyone attends the sporting events. There is not a football or baseball team. The athletic department needs a lot of work in their marketing department.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My school is unique because it's a commuter school in the heart of Downtown Indianapolis. It's a very diverse campus that offers something for everyone. Being centrally located, there are more job or internship opportunities. Most professors have real life experience and offer great insight.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: IUPUI, or Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis, is dedicated to the success and safety of their students, and made that very clear throughout not only their freshman orientation, but their entire application process as well. They have introduced me and other incoming freshman to countless opportunities of work, learning, involvement, and friendship. It is because of this that I do not regret my decision to choose IUPUI, and if I could go back to my decision day, I would not choose anything different.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I don't know much about it.

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: No football team. I think we have a basketball team?

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Great for commuting. Although hard to make friends when not living on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: They have a great sports facility

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It is a pretty good school, but there still need some improvement in teaching styles and they have to be better at helping students succeed

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: There is a wide range of professors and their experience. Some are wonderful some you wish you could avoid at all costs. The class sizes themselves aren't an issue but due to the fact that the campus is growing the class sizes are getting a bit bigger and creates a lack of a one-on-one relation with the professor.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: There are a lot of opportunities for career prospects. There are typically three career fairs each semester on campus but there are also ones off of campus.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: There's been incidents of armed suspects around campus but I don't expect anything less than that because of the fact were are located downtown. There are emergency blue light systems throughout campus and also officers are more than welcome to escort students back to their car or their resident halls at night.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Housing is very expensive. Depending on what you want (social or studious atmosphere) it varies on the residence halls.

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.
