What Students Are Saying

3.45 Average Rating
If you are unsure of what you want to major in, come to IPFW. You will save money by coming to the satellite campus for Indiana or Purdue University. Once you decide what you want to major in then you may decide to transfer to either of the main campuses. However, the charm of this college may entice you to finish your degree here.
Shelby from Fort Wayne, IN
College is a much different experience than high school and IPFW gives you many opportunities to have fun, study hard, and make memories.
Joshua from Huntington, IN
Do not be embarrassed or afraid to ask for help here. There are always people or resources available for you to use for your benefit.

Do not purchase your books from the bookstore on campus, they are VERY expensive. If you have to, wait until the first day of class, see what the book looks like and then find it online. They will be so much more cheaper. Renting is okay, and if you return your book you will NOT receive as much as you purchased it for, almost guaranteed.
Jennifer from Syracuse, IN
As I noted earlier, I suggest that every student does a little research about the professor they will soon have. That will be a big factor in your grade because it was for mine.

Don't be afraid to take communication classes like I was. I have social anxiety and I dreaded taking a communications class, but when the semester was finally coming to a close, I was extremely sad because I really did enjoy my classmates and all the life lessons my professor taught me.

Take notes for a class before hand! This is advice I wish I followed during the beginning of my freshmen year. I would look at the syllabus before hand, take notes on the chapters, then when I went to class it was a lot easier to understand. Additionally, if you have a science or math class that gives homework online all at once, take advantage of your time and do as much homework ahead of time as you can! This cost me a B in Calculus because I forgot an online quiz and ended with a C+.

come visit the campus and see all that it has to offer. the city life also has a lot to offer.
Kaleigh from Mishawaka, IN
Coming to IPFW saves lots of money as opposed to going to college out of state. They offer a variety of courses and have plenty of majors. If you are undecided, take different courses and I'm sure you will eventually find something that interests you.
