Overall Experience: I never have a bad time

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: the Pod bagged lunch is good

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: the dorms are updated and feel like mini apartments

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: There are many options for on-campus living based on personal preference. I'm a transfer student from a private school, and IUP's housing is actually much better. The housing options here have been updated, and are therefore more comfortable and practical. If you want the cheapest route, join the Cook Honors College here and live in their designated building. The other cheapest route is the Elkin building. It's not as nice as the other options, though. Relatively speaking, the value here is excellent for what you get. It's clean, it's nice, it's new. Every dorm building has it's own computer room, which is great in the winter when you don't want to walk across campus to the Library.

4 College Student

Off-Campus Housing: Off-campus housing would have been a great option for my freshman year of college because I feel as though it would have been cheaper than purchasing a dorm. Obviously there is many pros and cons to housing on and off of campus. Overall, both options are pretty good!

3 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: I've been to Indiana a lot, and I would have food from places that are located rather close to the actual campus. The food isn't too expensive, and i find them to be convenient especially if there are students that work somewhere off campus--they can grab a bite to eat easily.

4 College Student

Administration: When I have been on campus tours, I was told about the schools rules and policies. I feel as though they have a very good hand on things. IUP is a really good and respectable school. I feel as though with the schools policies, it makes students' social lives on the campus safer.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

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.
