Student & Graduate Reviews

Allison Hedrick - 6/3/2019
Degree: Philosophy
Graduation Year: 2016
"This school was a good fit for me for many reasons. First, they accepted transfer credits from Ivy Tech, where I earned an Associate's Degree. However, the downside was that they only accept a limited number of transfer credits, so keep that in mind if you are looking to transfer. Now, many two-year colleges have specific transfer programs. Second, the Liberal Arts professors were top-rate. It did not matter what class I took, the majority of my professors not only knew the material but had a passion for it that really showed and encourage the students to be engaged. Third, the Philosophy program could be better if they incorporated more logic courses (which they recently cut back even more), however, the professors were incredible and always had the time and willingness to meet with students. They have at least two very well known scholars associated with the Philosophy department. My second issue with the program was a lack of historical context. In the four years that I attended (two for my Masters), I did not see any class offered on the classics like Plato or Aristotle. Much of the classes were based on modern Western analytical philosophy."

"Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) is a diverse educational institution. It offers various programs and is close to the heart of downtown Indianapolis. It also has four hospitals in close proximity to campus which adds to the number of opportunities on-campus or near campus for student employment. The program I participated in was offered by the Kelley School of Business. It not only allowed me to complete a triple major and double minor but diversify my education, build a diverse network and create opportunity for myself whether it was through a fraternity for business professionals or case competitions."

Degree: Psychology

"I graduated from IUPUI in 2016. I liked the academics at IUPUI. They have wide variety of majors to choose from. I transferred from biology major to psychology. The faculty at the school that thought my classes were awesome. Undergraduate research opportunities offered by the university get a one of my stars. Being located in downtown opens up lot of job opportunities as well as provides access to low price apartment rentals to the students ."

"With the high ideals and expectations IUPUI achieves each day, the opportunities offered here can only benefit your future. I can assure you, you will take with you the skills and talents gained on campus to any workforce and fully lead, grow, and serve, but most of all, make a difference. IUPUI offers over 200+ degree programs. You also have to opportunity to take classes from two universities in one place, Indiana University and Purdue University. IUPUI is a culturally rich campus and offers many student body activities year round."

Katelyn - 3/28/2017
Degree: Fitness Trainer
Graduation Year: 2016
"IUPUI provided me with multiple service-learning opportunities to explore different fields in exercise science from the beginning of my education through senior year. These experiences allowed me to figure out if I either wanted to work as soon as I graduated or if I wanted to continue on to graduate school. Besides these opportunities, the faculty was helpful with any questions and advice on the different paths to take. I chose to continue on to grad school, but I felt immensely prepared to enter the work force with the experience and education I received at IUPUI."

Sarah Hanson - 3/12/2017
Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2015
"The Philanthropic Studies program is geared toward teaching students the trends of American philanthropy. While not as applicable as non-profit management is in running a non-profit, the degree is focused on researching giving trends, as well as studying how to fundraise and work with foundations, as well as conduct research into giving sectors. One of the best aspects of this program is the level of networking opportunities that are available to students, as well as the vast array of internship connections."

Janet Wheeler - 3/8/2017
Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2013
"IUPUI is a great school for those wanting to attend school at night! My goal at the end of my undergraduate journey was to obtain a B.A. in political science (of course a degree!) AND also to work while I attended in an attempt to minimize debt. IUPUI was a fantastic choice to help reach those goals. The night courses were well-taught, and well-staffed. I did not feel as if I received a sub-par education because I was a non-traditional student. Also, safety on campus was AMAZING! After all courses, I was able to contact security and have an escort to my vehicle, which was great. I highly recommend IUPUI for the student wishing to take night courses."

"IUPUC is a great school with a small school feel. Everyone from the bursar to the advisors and the finalcial aid office are always happy to see you and welcome your questions. I always felt like their first goal was to serve me and help me in any way they could. They class sizes are smaller than larger campuses which makes for a more relaxed and intimate learning setting."

"It was informative. It is good to have the degree but make sure it is really something you want to do. It is a waste of time and money if you get a degree in something you aren't interested in. I do appreciate the knowledge I gained from college."

"I found the university to be very accessible. I do not agree with the choices the school is making to go all online. I think there is value in the classroom, but I have spoken with many people who say class times and campus is not accessible to them and without an online only option they would be unable to obtain a masters degree."
