What Students Are Saying

3.78 Average Rating
Study, stay busy with constructive activities, get involved in a fraternity that does charity and volunteer work on and off campus. Take advantage off and enjoy the many performances that are available on campus; concert and theatrical performances by students, professors, and professional entertainers alike. Get the most for your money regarding; education and time, and also have fun, but, BE SAFE. don't let things cloud your own better judgment.
Jeremy from Monroeville, PA
for prospective students, i would say organization, time management, and good study skill are all useful when trying to recieve the best grades.
Kianna from Philadelphia, PA
One regret: not utilizing semester abroad that was available. DO IT WHEN YOU ARE IN COLLEGE!!!
T from Indiana, PA
Meet with your professors if you are struggling or having problems, it's like everyone always says it's not like high school they won't always come to you and say hey you aren't doing so well do you need help. They want you to come to them and show that you care and are trying. They won't turn you away they will do the best they can to help you out and get you to understand, you just have to ask and put forward an effort.
Krissy
Challenge yourself to find new and interesting avenues to explore, whether it may be a new class or club.
Christine from Pittsburgh, PA
If you introduce yourself to everyone in your classes and who live around you you will always have a study partner or someone to share interests with. There are also peer mentors and CA's that will be happy to help you out. Do not be afraid to ask questions, including to your professors. If you show your professor that you really care they will help you more.

GO TO INDIANA UNIVERSITY OF PENNSYLVANIA!!
Erin from Pittsburgh, PA
Expect cold weather in October, but mostly expect amazing unity. The IUP campus is big and holds 14,000 students, but you feel so involved when you are here. Whether you join the paper or just play frisbee with friends in the Oak Grove, you will see how unified the students are.
Freshman 09
Come see the campus, do a walking tour with a campus guide, and consider applying over the summer decision day visits offered by the University. That way, you could alleviate the stress of the unknown of the college application process, and enjoy your senior year at high school knowing that you've already been accepted into a great college!
Adam from York, PA
As always, studying and grades are important, but don't forget to have fun, make friends and experience new things. College is what you make it, always remember to study and get the grade that you want, but grades aren't the only reason you're going to college right? Good grades, new experiences, new friends and fun. Those are your keywords.
