Most Helpful Review for Indiana University of Pennsylvania-Main Campus
  • Category: Am learning a lot
  • Review by: Laura from PA

All of my professors push me to do my best. They offer help at any time of the day. I never used to enjoy Chemistry, let alone do well in it, I was very scared that I wouldn't be able to make it as a physical therapy major. My Chem 111 Professor made Chemistry fun and easy to learn. I made deans list that semester and am continuing to do well in the subject. My Chemistry Professor is the same as the other professors in that aspect; they care a lot.

    Indiana University is a beautiful school, that sits in a quaint small town surrounding mountains and the great outdoors. This school has a vast array of wonderful majors that range from the Arts, to Sciences, Mathematics, or Health and Safety. IUP is a school that has just the right amount of students not too many that you never see anyone you may have met the fist year or classes that have over 200 students, but the amount that when you walk around campus you'll see a classmate and the size of classes are around 30 to 50 depending on your major.

  • Sep-01-2016 I am researching this school and have not visited the campus

    I applied for this school, and they sent me an invite to come and visit the school and to take a tour, and when someone gets in the mail that they can come and have tour in most countries in means that your a step closer of getting accepted. Next thing I know they haven't accepted me nor sent me an email for not getting in. I put my all to get into this university and now I'm taking a semester off. I did think I was getting accepted. I'm so shocked and angry. I really loved this place and it made me feel like I was home. I hope you guys take a second look at my application and give me a chance.

    iup is an awful school, that does not care about its students or if they succeed. the students are simply a number that generates revenue for the university. the president of iup is clueless on how to run anything relating to academic and he hires faculty whom are known to do the university wrong by stealing university funds. the professor's offer very little help if you're not constantly riding them to do their jobs. the education is 1/5 and campus life is literally nothing but frat parties and drug use. i would strongly recommend avoiding iup if you want to obtain a education that would be worth your time and money.

    IUP was an amazing college experience for the price. I was highly qualified for my first teaching job, and it was in Florida (they sought IUP teachers in that district). The social life was great but so were the classes.

    A campus just big enough to find something to do, but small enough to get to know all of your professors. Generally, staff members are super helpful and a great resource. And the amount of clubs and extracurriculars available can provide everybody with a great college experience.

    I would say that the Indiana University of Pennsylvania is affordable. The campus is large, but I am able to get to know people quickly. The atmosphere is highly enriched with people who want to achieve their dreams.

    Overall, I really enjoy going to Indiana University of Pennsylvania. Classes are taught by real professors, who for the most part, enjoy their jobs and care about their students. However, the quaint and charming town of Indiana is small and located, for the most part, in the middle of nowhere.

    I have completed my freshman year at IUP and I absolutely love my college! The campus is very open and easily walkable with lots of trees and quads in the living areas. I love the feel of being on my own while still living in a semi-structured environment.
