4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I honestly love my experience at Indiana University of Pennsylvania! The campus is absolutely beautiful and, in my opinion, it's just the right size. Its not too big and its not too small. The professors are very helpful and there hasn't been a course or a professor that I haven't liked. This college was actually the last choice on my list of schools, but I wouldn't change my decision for anything.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love my school it was the best decision I could ever make. it was a fresh start with it being five hours away from home. I've met some of the greatest people there and will cherish our friendship for a long time. The teachers were understanding and most willing to work with their students.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I was a little skeptical of IUP when I first arrived, I had a lot of trouble making friends and getting involved. I became really close with my CA, and she told me about things to get involved in. Then, I started making great friends who even enjoyed going to the library with me and that was plus. If I choose all over again I would stick with my choice because I couldn't imagine myself having these experiences anywhere else.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Honestly, if I could choose it a school all over again with my two years of experience under my belt, I would still choose IUP. The courses are challenging but doable, and I don't even have words to express how much participating in The Legend has helped me grow as a person. There is only one Legend; you can't get that anywhere else.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My school is okay, I just wish my advisor was a little more helpful, then I wouldn't be having so much trouble now.

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.

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.
