4 College Student

Overall Experience: IUP is very diverse and never boring. I love the small class sizes.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I took three courses this semester, but only one course is satisfying. the other two professors always cannot make assignments clear.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I just heard there is a student career, but never got help from them, it seems they don't make advertisement at all.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: most of the time it's safe I think. but I got an email before that said one of my schoolmates was robbed. so I am very careful now.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It is really expensive to live on campus! And we don't have a big personal space even for private shared suits. T

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: There are not so many Greek students at my university, so they affect little the social atmosphere of the campus. And since our university has a huge population of international students, Greeks are viewed as common as other international students.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: This is my first semester here, I was a little bit overwhelmed at the beginning of the semester. But now I am totally fine. I learned a lot. I like one of my professors very much, she made everything clear and organized. And she cares students' variety.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: The Greek life here is highly active and non Greeks are sometimes biased in their opinions about Greeks.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The faculty is great and the community is great for learning.

4 College Junior

Athletics: Students are actively involved and there are always a large turnout during games

4 College Freshman

Athletics: school spirit is high, lots of teams to watch and cheer for, intramurals are offered

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I would definitely choose this school again. The classes offered are diverse, the professors I have had are great teachers and the school helps you in any way they can

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It is a very beautiful school. Always something to do. Dorms are very nice and somewhat new. I feel very secure here as the police presence is high and safety precautions are always taken very seriously. The class sizes are decent. Some classes only have about 30 students, which gives for more one-on-one time with your professor.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Our campus police has emergency poles about every so many feet around the campus for incase of an emergency, you just press a button and the police will be on their way in a few minutes. Security is a big thing, thats why they have us fill out forms for when guests are here and allow us with one iCard.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There is a great amount of classes to take, with plenty of great professors. The classrooms are up to date and very nice with different sizes to go along with them. New technologies make it great to use laptops and iPads.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are always career fairs and job opportunities. I have a great advisor who emails us daily about job openings in our career field which is great.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Being that you have to live on campus your freshman year is a good and bad rule. Living with a total stranger can really open your eyes to a lot of things. My dorm building is in the middle of everything so it is very convenient when walking everywhere. The only down fall is the parking lot for on campus housing is very far.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life on campus is a big thing, but only if your in one. They throw parties but only for people in the fraternities or sororities which I don't think is very fun. Opening it up to the public would really widen peoples thoughts and visions on their opinions about them and maybe even make them want to join.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: My college is a D2 school, and we are very into our sports. Our basketball and football teams being some of the best. I enjoy visiting all the sporting events and watching my friends cheer and play softball. Really a great way to meet new people and spend time with friends.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: College is definitely an eye opener. The grading, teaching and class sizes are very different from the high school I went to. Everyone is super friendly and welcoming. And there are so many new and fun opportunities at college. It very much teach you to sort of live on your own and be independent.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There are a lot of police officers driving around campus throughout the day and night. It makes me feel safe. We also have blue lights around campus for if you feel like you are being followed or there is something wrong a police officer will come and help you.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are a lot of courses offered here. Professors are very nice and know what they are talking about.

Picking the right college often leaves students stranded between two choices: sacrificing a well-rounded education for a cheaper school, or ponying up the cash for a private education with a lot of extras. In a way that many other public schools simply aren't, Indiana University of Pennsylvania is honestly the best of both worlds. IUP students get a quality education that rivals many smaller private colleges at the public university price. Although Indiana isn’t a major city, and the small-town atmosphere is something that students have to take into consideration, the town is picturesque and fun if you know where to look. Be sure to come visit before you commit to IUP, and keep an open mind when you come. Indiana has a way of growing on you.

The student body at IUP is fairly diverse, but every student can find his niche. Although 15,000 seems like a lot of students, the campus itself doesn’t feel that large. Because it draws students from across the nation and around the world, there’s something for everyone, whether that’s a student organization, a club, a sport, a Greek organization, or an extracurricular activity. You’ll find people and things at IUP that will expand your perspective on the world and challenge your expectations. As far as academics, IUP offers more than 100 majors and is the only public university in Pennsylvania to offer a doctoral program as well. Even for freshmen, classes aren't unmanageable. The professors know what they’re talking about and make class as interesting as they can, and most classes have no more than 100 students in them (even gen-eds). There’s a reason that alumni are proud to call IUP their alma mater. Few universities offer what Indiana University of Pennsylvania does for such a fair price.
