3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I received one or two scholarships from IUP to go toward my financial aid, but I was never informed how to apply for scholarships on my own through the school.

5 College Freshman

Campus Food: I think that the food on campus is very good. However, I would like to see the quality of the pizza at the Crimson Cafe improve.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Good options for off-campus dining.

5 College Freshman

Administration: I have had pleasant experience with the administration at IUP. The police can be rude when it comes to parking places around the dorms though.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at IUP.

3 College Freshman

Administration: The strictness is real. They are very strict about underage drinking and use of drugs, they don't give any free bees. If you are caught then you have to pay the consequences.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: It helped me out a lot. I had a few troubles in the beginning but I got what I needed and it all worked out.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There is a lot of options but some are very far from campus and I don't like that I like walking distance.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: The party scene at school is great I absolutely love it! It is a great way to meet friends!

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The off campus dinning is nothing great, but I usually don't go anywhere but besides on campus.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food and dinning options get very old after awhile. The café which is foster to me is horrible.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I love living on campus! The dorms are very clean. The social atmosphere is the best, there is many friendly and nice people. The cost of going to college is the only down fall it is very expensive and the prices are raising at my school.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I have yet to fully experience this for myself. I've started looking into houses and I have found that there are a lot of options. Many are not the most beautiful houses or apartments, but they will do.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: There are parties every night of the week. Big parties, like at frats and big houses, are Wednesdays through Saturday. It's crazy here.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I usually prefer to eat off campus because it tastes better. Philadelphia street has a lot to offer for delivery to campus. Even just walking to Philly Street isn't too bad.

2 College Freshman

Administration: IUP does not care about what you do unless you are drinking or doing drugs in the dorm rooms. A lot of parking tickets are given out cause the cops just like to write people up.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Don't rely on just that financial aid because it really is not enough to even put a dent into the tuition help. Plus you have to call multiple times to get an answer to just one question. Many students work in the office answering calls and cannot answer questions thoroughly.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: If Chic fil A wasn't there in the Hub, I don't know what I'd do. The Crimson Cafe makes the best grilled cheese ever. If you need to detox, go to Fosters.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are really nice. I loved my room. However, CA's and RA's are not very willing to take action if you have a roommate situation. I had a bathroom in my own bedroom, and I did not have to share a bedroom with a roommate, just a common area so I loved the privacy. The walls are thin though so you can hear everything. The social atmosphere is rough. There's a lot to do if you're into partying. However if you aren't into the party scene, it's easy to go a year without making any friends like I did.

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.
