4 College Senior

Guys & Girls: Typical students are friendly and helpful during classes and group projects. IUPUI is a commuter campus and it's very obvious. Most of the students are ready to leave right when their classes are finished for the day. I only have interaction with other students in class or group projects, usually.

3 College Senior

Party Scene: There is not very much activity on campus except for the younger students. Parties usually occur off campus at an apartment or house.

3 College Senior

Campus Food: The quality of the food does not match the price.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: It's great there are different restaurants close to campus.

4 College Junior

Campus Food: The campus food is great. There are so many choices of food to eat at the Campus Center. There are a lot of varieties of food to eat there too.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: The housing here at IUPUI is great. It's close to campus and it's also walking distance to campus. The social atmosphere at IUPUI is great.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I have not looked into off campus housing.

3 College Freshman

Administration: I don't really have an opinion on this since there is never any big parties I am at.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Make sure to file the FAFSA on time to be elligible for maximum aid.

1 College Freshman

Party Scene: The social life is practically nonexistant for me at IUPUI. It is a huge commuter school, and it seems like when I meet someone, they are a commuter. I am not a partier, but having social gatherings with other students would be nice. The University Tower is not at all like a dorm atmosphere.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: I am a vegetarian, and I am pleased with the amount of choices I have in University Tower.

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I am not getting the social college experience I was looking for. It is very quiet and no one in my dorm acts like they even know each other. I didn't think it was possible to be bored when away at college, but my roommate and I are.

College Senior

Party Scene: I have never really been interested in the party scene on campus.

4 College Senior

Campus Food: The campus center has a lot of great options! It can get a little expensive if you eat there every day.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: I lived on campus for one year and then moved back home. During my one year, I made some amazing friendships. I really enjoyed my time in campus housing. There were lots of fun free programs for residence. However, I decided that the money I spent on housing would be better spent elsewhere.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food is good but can be expensive.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: It just depends where you live. The cheapest off-campus housing is closest to campus, but that's also the most dangerous. The farther out you go, the safer it becomes, but the cost also increases.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: I only eat at Yats. The food is already cheap and delicious and somewhat exotic for this area.

College Sophomore

Administration: The instructors make most of the policies except for anything regarding plagiarism. Other than being strict about parking with a displayed permit, the campus policies usually don't affect students.

College Sophomore

Scholarships: I am only just starting to apply for it again, as the first time I was not eligible for FAFSA.

College Sophomore

Party Scene: I am a recovering drug addict-- I don't go to parties. I hear about them occasionally, but I have no interest in attending.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: I think the food quality and diversity is really good. I just wish it wasn't marked up as much.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It is expensive and not very spacious, but it allows me to live close to campus and be more involved in non-academic campus activities.

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: It is extremely overpriced and the housing that is closer to being reasonable in price is of poor quality.

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.
