Indiana University of Pennsylvania-Main Campus Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (9)
I really enjoyed the whole experience. My Masters degree was all online so I didn't have much class room experience there.
Phenomenal college. Provides the opportunities for anyone to succeed at a high level.
IUP is a beautiful, mid-sized school with a multitude of quality professors. The campus is close to Pittsburgh, but still rural enough to avoid the large crowds and traffic that comes with the city. The dining options are excellent, with a variety of choices and locations. Recently, IUP added a number of brand-new dorm buildings.
Iup was a great college. The advisors did their best to get you out in 4 years. The college spends money to keep buildings clean and up to date. The campus and town provide affordable living options.
The business college was a fantastic place to learn. It was cutting edge and the student life was fantastic. The school offered many scholastic clubs and amateur sports activities to keep everyone busy and involved in student life.
I loved going to IUP. I learned so much from my professors and was able to take courses that interested me. Some great perks was the long hours of the library and new dorm rooms.
I loved going to IUP because of the professors, especially in the history department. I was in the honors track and was able to conduct original research and contribute to my field. I was involved in many clubs, for sports and for academics. I love the campus and the people. It was a great experience!
As a high school senior getting ready to start my collegial journey, I never thought I would end up at IUP, until I toured. I toured around a few colleges I thought I would like, but it wasn’t until I came to IUP that I felt like I could see myself going to this college. The campus is absolutely beautiful, with new buildings going up, and old ones being renovated everything has a stunning modern feel. Academics 5/5 I am enrolled in the nursing program at IUP, and it has been the best learning experiences of my life. For my anatomy lab we are one of few colleges that are able to study a human cadaver. It is an amazing learning opportunity that’s not available to most students. Also, I am able go up to 6 different hospitals/homes around the area for my clinical rotations, which really helps me for my future job career. Overall, IUP has an 18:1 student to faculty ratio, really making the opportunity to excel quite easily. Every professor I have had in the past two semesters are more than willing to help you in your classes and genuinely want to see you pass. Student Life 4/5 Now that Indiana is my new home I really like going out to explore and to see what it has to offer. Indiana is a college town so most of the town is geared to accommodate the students. With roughly 15,000 students enrolled at IUP there are groups and activities for everyone, you would have to try to not make friends. My favorite thing about the town is that it is a perfect combination of town and rural life all in one. I can be in town on Philadelphia Street and feel like I’m in a mini city, but a ten minute car ride later I can be going on a hike through the woods or fishing at Yellowcreek. One thing that I wish IUP offered would be a bigger sports scene. Sports are taken seriously but I would much rather have a D1 sports class. Living arrangements 5/5 Out of every dorm I have scene, IUP by far has the nicest, and biggest. Every room comes with its own bathroom, which is my favorite feature. My roommate transferred after the first semester so now I get to have the whole room to myself, which is pretty awesome. Most of the dorms have been built in the past decade so you know that you are getting what you are paying for. After freshmen year you can choose to live on or off campus, there are plenty places to live either route you go, but the dorms are almost twice the cost of what I'm paying for off campus living next year. Price 3/5 IUP is definitely one of the cheaper schools out there, but not the cheapest. On the bright side, at Iup you get to pay one flat tuition price, not by credit. It all depends on if you want to get more credits for your price. There are tons of scholarship opportunities for both academics and sports you just have to find them. Also, like I said earlier, the dorms are expensive, but you can always live off campus after your first year. Overall Recommendation All in all, I love the school that I choose, and wouldn’t want to transfer to anywhere else. IUP offers everything that I wanted in a university, and I’m sure it can cater to your preferences too. In a final overall assessment, I would give IUP a 5/5 star rating and recommend it to anyone, because it has so much to offer while still being a smaller sized university.
It was a great fit for me. I received a scholarship for all four years while I was enrolled, the people were great and I made life lasting bonds.
I would have chosen the same degree because it has set me apart from most individuals just majoring in business and allows me to be more marketable in a field where not many African Americans are.
Go to a school where you'll pay the least coming out of in student loan debt and don't get discouraged with the job application process. The right fitting career will come with time and experience.
