What Students Are Saying

3.46 Average Rating
indiana university-purdue university- fort wayne indiana is the perfect college for me. not only is the price right, it is close to home but also gives me the opportunity to be away from home. with all the educational degrees, it can be the perfect place for everyone!
Kaleigh from Mishawaka, IN
IPFW is a great college choice for those just getting out of high school because of the relationships you may be able to develop with friends, professors, etc. It also allows you to incorporate the knowledge you gained from high school or even in general knowledge since there is so many options and opportunities for just about everyone to take advantage of. I would give IPFW a rating of 5/5.
Joshua from Huntington, IN
This is a place I am proud to say I am attending. With a beautiful campus filled with amazing and talented people who aspire to achieve much in their lives. This university is one that will grow and prosper for years to come.
Michael from Fort Wayne, IN
The best school
Marques from New Castle, IN
First of all, I love IPFW because of the endless free gifts, free academic help, and free food that they are constantly offering us because what college student doesn't love free stuff? Additionally, another important detail of my school is that my classmates are kind, caring, simply decent students. Lastly, while I've had extremely caring professors during my first year, I urge every student search the professor he/she is thinking about having on RateMyProfessor because there are a few difficult teachers at IPFW.
