5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I only had two professors in 4 years that I gave bad ratings to on an evaluation.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: I generally feel very safe, but I think a lot more can be done to educate incoming students about how to treat others and settle situations that are taking a turn for the worse.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: There are a lot of opportunities, but they are poorly advertised.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: The Suites are beautiful. They are nearly brand new and up to date. The last remaining traditional dorm, Whitmyre, also is beautiful and has the best residents' community on campus.

4 College Senior

Greek Life: I was never involved, so I really cannot give an opinion.

3 College Senior

Athletics: Other than basketball, IUP is rather lacking in the sports department.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: IUP has a great faculty, especially the ones that work in the Cook Honors College. I received my BA Spanish degree there and loved it so much I am returning in the fall for my Masters!

4 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: Overall, our school was safe and secure. No major issues or concerns from student body. Police presence was strong and aware, and safety services was always around.

5 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: At Indiana University of Pennsylvania, I had a great time. It was an excellent experience and I took several lessons from it. My internship was completed by the sophomore year because I had experience in my field before entering college. The alumni of IUP loved our school and always came back to visit and enjoy the festivals and student life. I had work study since the first day of college up until I graduated from college. The career center was not something I visited because I had jobs and opportunities before I graduate college.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: Campus life is okay, nothing special. They host and hold events from time to time for the residents of the buildings. We have suites, but they are expensive in my opinion. Social atmosphere is fine, it defers from person to person. I will say that living on campus is convenient and easy to navigate around campus; that is a plus.

3 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: I am not a fan of Greek Life, but they do community work and events for student life. Housing is accessible to those who are in need.

4 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: Drexel Sports and Athletics' is a plus and are exciting. School spirit is the best and our student body supports our teams. Our facilities spend money to make sure we have the equipment necessary to compete at a high level.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Drexel University is a wonderful school. It gives us an opportunity to grow and develop within our field of choice, and it provides each scholar with the tools and knowledge necessary to compete with other individuals who as also applying for the jobs and careers similar to ours. We are diverse and love our school; the Dragon's will always be in my heart.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Beautiful campus that makes it extremely enjoyable to walk to class, to the gym, or anywhere. Class sizes range from very small and individualized to lecture-sized, depending on how major-specific it is, but I have never been overwhelmed by the number of people in a classroom. I would choose this school again because I have only had good experiences with both academic and extracurricular activities.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: The security could definitely be improved. There have been several problems throughout the last two semesters, a little more police officers around could have,, perhaps, avoided some situations

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: The school offers a lot of help to students, especially if they are undecided. There is a class that will explain the different majors offered, so that the undecided students can find a major they'd like to pursue.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: The dorms are very expensive for what is being offered. It is good for freshmen, but it does not offer much. They are tiny, however they are new buildings

3 College Junior

Greek Life: A lot of Greek students help out in the community, but some of them are good only for parties

4 College Junior

Athletics: There is a lot of support for the football team, not as much for other sports

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Most of the professors seem very helpful, however the best departments are the small ones, because there is a better interaction between the professors and the students

2 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Lots of partying and police do their best, but it's often not enough

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Many housing options to choose from, clean and new buildings

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Decent facilities, but I don't care much about athletics

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: A little too rural, but nice, new facilities

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: The classroom sizes definitely range. I've had classes where there are 5 of us and classes where there are 200 of us. I've had some amazing professors who have helped me tremendously along the way and have shown interest in my education.

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.
