4 College Student

Off-Campus Housing: Its so much cheaper to live off campus.

3 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: A lot of things are very expensive for a broke college kid.

4 College Student

Party Scene: There is always a place to party

3 College Student

Administration: A lot of things go unnoticed.

3 College Student

Scholarships: Its difficult when you don't get the funds you need. im risking not being able to return.

3 College Student

Campus Food: It gets old after awhile eating the same food over and over again.

4 College Student

Campus Housing: Itcould be better, but I love campus and its secure and makes e feel safe.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I myself have never rented outside campus. But I have friends that have and they said that it was pretty easy all things considered and it IS way cheaper than anything you would get on campus. JUst price check around and start early.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Honestly most of the food is designed to either be quick and easy finger food, or utensils only. Not much in between. There are options if you look but you have to check times. SOme places are more sought after than others and not always for good reasions. SO just try a bunch of places. I personally love the Coney.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: The parties here are okay depending on where you go. You have to be smart. Make sure you have a buddy, that you know where the place is, that you watch what you drink. The parties can be a positive or negative but it's up to the student's actions and expectations

4 College Freshman

Administration: The school can be strict. But one must remember that they are fighting a party rep, so they have to at least look like they are trying. So if you are doing something, i hope it's legal or that you are at least respectful if they catch you, that is a big thing with them.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: It can be easy or difficult. You just have to get good at bureaucracy and deal with the paper work and get it together so they can get you going, you need to help yourself here cause no one else will.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: There's plenty of good food if you figure out where and when to look for it. The facilities are clean and though the menus are repetitive they try to spice it up. THough I wish that the meal swipe covered more as some of it is wasted at my favorite place, grille works. But overall it is not bad, just irritating.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I like the campus housing, there is plenty of space to study and provide places to speak with peers and enjoy yourself. The rooms themselves are of a decent size with good air systems and appliances.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Haven't lived off-campus yet but looking made it seem okay!

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Coming from a city, I'm used to many more options but for a town as small as it is, Indiana offers a lot of restaraunts if you're willing to find them

4 College Freshman

Administration: I live in Stephenson & have had a very positive experience with these kinds of things. No one cares how loud you are or who you have over when. I did get alcohol taken away but I deserved it & got in no trouble. I know people who live at Northern, however, and have quite the opposite experience. Depends on what CA's you end up with, I guess.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: I Usually Party.. Describes it all. Oh and of course IUPatty's!

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Getting in touch with them can be difficult & the way they refuse to talk to parents is very annoying. They are nice & cordial enough to make up for it though.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: There are a lot of options & I've never had anything awful. As long as you like a lot of different foods, you won't get sick of eating here

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I love having my own room, kitchen area, shower, and access to heating/AC. It's much better than all of the college dorms I've seen

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: havent explored but good options

1 College Freshman

Scholarships: I am unable to find scholarships

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The sports games are a very important on and off campus. They are very fun and don't cost that much to attend.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There is plenty of options, and some with very reasonable prices. A lot of the houses have parking permits, but you might have to pay for them. You have to go out on your own to find a good house, because the school wants you to stay on campus so they don't give you a lot of information.

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.
