Student & Graduate Reviews

Carissa Smith - 1/17/2017
Degree: Sports Management
Graduation Year: 2017
"Currently at Indiana University of Pennsylvania, I am majoring in Sports Administration with a minor in Business administration, as well as pursuing my masters in Sport Science and Kinesiology. For my bachelors degree I was required to enroll in classes like Prevention and Care of Injuries, Motor Behavior, and Management Facilities and Events in Sports. I felt that my required courses allowed me to learn about both the financial and physical aspects of the sport industry which will be helpful in any career I may pursue with my degree. Indiana University of Pennsylvania offers a 4 + 1 program for the Sports Administration major which allows students to begin taking graduate classes even before they finish their bachelors degree. In other words, if the student is accepted into the Graduate Program they will be able to receive their Bachelor's and Master's Degree in only five years! This opportunity has led to me to maximize my time as a college student and graduate with two degrees in a short period of time. I am extremely happy with my decision to attend Indiana University of Pennsylvania and pursue dual degrees in Sport Administration/Sport Science."

Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2015
"Indiana University of Pennsylvania is a great place to immerse yourself into a diverse community. Academically: The Political Science department is a small department but has amazing professors. My advisor always took out the time to sit down with me and go over scheduling concerns and talk about future goals. Most of the professors write their own books and regularly attend conferences and seminars related to the coursework. The coursework usually has current events related to the syllabus, making the class engaging. Students have the opportunity to intern with various organizations, such as NextGen climate and the THIS Program in Harrisburg. Overall, the PLSC Department was very resourceful.. Socially: I love to say, "If you're bored on campus, you're sitting in your room doing nothing." There are over 200 (last time I was on campus) organizations that put on events that are both socially and academically beneficially to the student body. If there is an organization that is not on campus, students can create one. With the wide range of fraternities, sororities, clubs, and other organizations, there is a wide range of activities that students can participate in. I truly enjoyed my time at IUP and believe that with following the right resources, prospective students will have the same experience."

"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."
