The school was really nice. I really liked the campus because of the size, food, and it was active. The buildings were really nice on the inside too. I got to talk to a few students because of the tour and also because there were students promoting their club. Everybody was really friendly. Only thing I wasn’t impressed with was the location. I like the beach but Indianapolis isn’t that kind of city. I would 100% go there if there was a beach near by.
It is a good school. The buildings are nice and there are lots of green spaces. There are a lot of commuters so it gets pretty quiet during the weekends but that can be kind of nice. It's also in a pretty walkable area of Indianapolis so you can find stuff to do if you want to.
IUPUI is the only college I've attended so my review might be a little skewed . I personally feel there is a sense of community at IUPUI, especially with bridge which helps students get accustomed with college life. I've had a lot of great professors here that really want me to succeed.
I don't live on campus so I don't know too much about the dorms and meal plans.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Indiana University-Purdue University-Indianapolis is 73%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
The advice I would give myself as a high school senior would be to learn study habits in high school. It's difficult to jump into college and not know how to study. College profesors don't go that easy on you. When you have two or three tests in one week, and you don't know how to sit down and study, you won't be able to do well on your tests. I would also tell myself to get involved. I wasn't that involved my freshman year of college, so it wasn't that enjoyable. However, now I'm starting to get more involved and it's becoming easy to make new friends. Have the confidence to go out and do things you didn't do in high school, that is the best advice I could give myself. Step outside of the box.
It is like being in highschool with more freedom.
My classmates are young and older, since I got to college online there is a variety. They are friendly but I do not get to know them as well as most college students know their fellow classmates, or only way of communication is through the computer.
The atmosphere, it is so friendly and fun it is hard not to feel at home here. Almost everyone is extremely nice and open to meeting new people. I think this is important because it is great to have friends to hang out with whether it is off campus or on campus between classes. Also just the fact that you can feel comfortable here makes a huge difference with studying and relaxing.
I hate that our school sometimes belittles the Purdue side of campus as being not as important because we have fewer Purdue schools campared to IU schools. The reason this is bad is because it makes all the Purdue students feel like they don't matter to the school or perhaps that they attended the wrong school. To be fair they are usually good about not excluding Purdue, but with our recent logo change to the IU logo it has left Purdue students less than thrilled.
It's extremely diverse.
Before I cam to IUPUI, I wish I would have known/realized how much of a commuter campus it was. I have to leave my house rediculously early just to find a parking spot so I can make it to class on time. Also, I wish I would have known that some of the people around me were going to be rude. When I visit other schools, I walk by a student and they say, "Hi." At IUPUI, everyone is so depressed-looking.

There is not a particular kind of person that shouldn't attend Indiana University-Purdue University, Indianapolis. However, potential students showing poor performance in high school may not be accepted without prior higher education experience. In order to serve these potential students, IUPUI has formed strong relationships with Indianapolis-based community colleges such that several courses taken at these colleges can easily be directly transferred onto an IUPUI transcript.
I think I brag the most about the lower cost and the projects that I have completed.
IUPUI would be a good fit for most people because it provides a very supportive and helpful learning environment. The people who already know what major they want to go into will receive the guidance and education that will make their goals achievable. Also, students who are unsure of what they want to focus have an opportunity to take a variety of classes that may help them decide.

I love the personal interaction between students and professors. If you are sick, your professors are so understanding, which is greatly beneficial when you're not feeling well! The one on one mentoring from faculty helps to enhance your academic career. A lot of many professors are on Facebook and other social networking sites, so you can communicate with them outside of class. So often you hear that college experiences at places like ISU or U of Indy feel like high school: this is not that experience! I am a student at Herron School of Art and Design on the IUPUI campus, and it is one of the finest art schools in the country. The building is newer and absolutely beautiful. There are galleries that are so nice inside that people within the community will stop by to visit them and view student artwork. While I love the interesting classes that I have taken, I do feel that many students (for various reasons) do not graduate from IUPUI within 4 years. The average is more like 5-7 years. People often change majors often.
The stereotype is, because it's a commuter campus, that students who come here are all non-traditional, couldn't afford to go anywhere else, etc. Not all, but some IU students in Bloomington have this attitude that IUPUI is second-rate compared to IUB and easier to get into, and that's just not true. Our students are just as diverse, and many of them chose IUPUI for several reasons that have nothing to do with cost or 'ease of access.'
IUPUI is the best value for your college experience in the state of Indiana. You will pay considerably less than that of a private four year college while obtaining the same degree as students at Indiana or Purdue Universities. Having attended classes at both IU and IUPUI, I actually prefer the smaller classes and personal relationships I have developed with professors and fellow classmates at IUPUI. The location of the buildings are close together, making walks to and from buildings in inclement weather better than the Bloomington location. While parking can be challenging at times, that just becomes more of an incentive to go green and walk, take the free school bus or take advantage of the new downtown Indianapolis bike lanes. If you are interested in law, business or medicine, there are so many internship opportunities available near campus. While the school has a large enrollment (30,000+), the fact that many students take night classes means that the campus never feels overcrowded or overwhelming. I think that people often get the wrong idea of IUPUI: "Why didn't you just go to IU or Purdue?" I LOVE this school, and being downtown Indianapolis provides so many opportunities that one could not have anywhere else.
There are multiple activities and organizations at IUPUI including fraternities and sororities, LGBT groups, multicultural organizations, sports related clubs, and clubs that are related to students majors.
There are sports held at IUPUI. Some are men's and women's soccer, men's and women's tennis, swimming, basketball and flag football. Each sport has times they play and are posted for students to see. I have been to a basketball game for IUPUI and it is free for students to view as long as they have there JagTag (student card) with them.
The best part of the social scene on campus is that everyone is open to saying what they like as long as it doesn't violate campus policies. The worst part is that some students do violate campus policies occasionally and there have been a few thefts on campus over the past year.
The stereotype of students separated by each school within IUPUI is accurate. Each school has its own rules, activities, clubs, and events to follow. Sometimes one school might have the events open to everyone though.
There is a McDonald's within Riley Hospital located on campus. There is a Chick-Fil-A and Starbucks at the Campus Center. There is a Subway, Donatos, Taco Bell, Panda Express, Jimmy Johns and Qdoba located near campus close to the hospitals. If you are looking for something a little more casual, you could possibly go down-town and look there.
