4 College Freshman

Academics: I really love attending school here. All the professors I have interacted with are smart and love to teach. The curriculum is neat because it varies from prof to prof. The registration process is fairly easy and can be done from home. The workload varies depending on who you get and what major you are in, but it is manageable (I have 17 cr. hrs and I am in the nursing school). You have TONS of different people who will help you if you need tutoring, math assistance, writing assistance, speech assistance, help in biology, and so on. People generally study in the library, which is awesome, but I have studied all over campus.

5 College Freshman

Academics: I love the nursing program. It is a tough program to get into, one of the top 20 in the country, but it is worth it. The workload is hard, and many of my nursing friends are up late and wake up early. It is a world-class program and it is treated as such, I hope to have the honor of being involved next year.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: My classes are great. The professors in my program are some of the most caring on campus.

3 College Freshman

Academics: They are all amazing and I love it. I just wish I were at IU.

4 College Freshman

Academics: IUPUI has a wide range of degree opportunities conveniently available within the Indianapolis area. They make IU and Purdue degrees more easily available without the commune.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

IUPUI includes two very well known universities: Indiana University and Purdue University. Bringing those two big names to one city makes for urban learning at its best. On the Boilermaker side there are the engineers and scientists weaving mathematics, visual learning, and experimental knowledge into the tapestry of urban society. On the Hoosier side there are sociologists, philosophers, and business professionals walking through the city and calculating the many ways to bring out the human in humanity. The academic opportunities seem endless at IUPUI. Unfortunately, in this environment not every student can decipher what is best for her or himself. Best advice: Utilize the academic advising system!

In addition to the various educational programs, the student-teacher ratio is as attractive as that of a private institution. Students at IUPUI have more access to professors than do their fellow students in Bloomington or Lafayette (where IU and Purdue are based). There are times when it will seem like you’re getting a private education for the cost of a public one. However, there aren’t as many students involved in the learning process at IUPUI as there are at larger universities. Few students become heavily involved in the true academic process because they have work or children to prioritize—but this is not true for every student. There are many who put in a tremendous amount of work in their studies, and they are quickly recognized for their efforts. Some, more advanced, students have stated that classes are too easy at IUPUI.
