What is your overall opinion of this school?

I could not have chosen a better University to attend. Aside from the diverse student and faculty, intimate class sizes, resources, tuition costs, campus life, campus safety, and beautiful campus, IUPUI is located in heart of downtown in a rich, urban, developing city. There is so much to do, so many people to network with, and a vast amount of opportunities. IUPUI birth the city's most accredited and trusted professionals. There is no place else I would rather study than at IUPUI!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I was just a visitor at IUPUI. I could tell everyone was having fun and living life. The vibe was wonderful. I am so excited to continue my education at IUPUI. The food was delicious, and the housing was top notch. The people were very friendly. A few of my friends go to IUPUI, and they said it was the best decision of their lives.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

IUPUI is a commuter school, but with all the best amenities of downtown Indianapolis. If you're looking for a traditional college experience, this is probably not the school for you. But with that being said, IUPUI does offer a number of extracurriculars for students who choose to be involved in their college experience. For the most part, academics here are what you make of them- there are plenty of opportunities for students to excel, but they are usually sought after on an individual basis. IUPUI doesn't have the same amount of research opportunities in the social sciences, but in the hard sciences and the engineering department they are readily accessible. The liberal arts department is probably the weakest portion of the school, but not due to the enthusiasm of the professors. Many are top-notch and incredibly involved in their students success; most are easily accessible via e-mail or office hours. As a Liberal Arts and School of Science student, I can say that in both areas I've met incredibly successful students on a state and national level... as I said before, IUPUI is truly what you make of it. As IUPUI is a commuter school, most of the students form a few close friendships, but are mostly busy in between their classes and don't have as much time for personal relationships as they would at a larger state school. However, much can be said about IUPUI students' work ethic- most have full or part-time jobs and still manage to dedicate themselves to their studies. Many are also involved in several of IUPUI's clubs- there are countless opportunities to be involved in one's passions and hobbies on campus. I can't say much on campus housing as I didn't live on campus, but food opportunities are plentiful at the campus center, and there are a few cafeterias in the dorms that can be described as typical college food. Indy is also a really fun city to go to school in- being downtown, there are a plethora of internship experiences and nightlife for those who wish to partake. Overall, if you're up for a non-traditional college experience with the opportunity to work in the the nation's 14th largest city, IUPUI is a good school for you.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

IUPUI is a great college academically wise. There are not a lot of extracurricular activities around campus unless you are involved with a particular club or organization. IUPUI is located downtown so there are many other things to do for fun. The college is great if you are looking to focus on school and have fun every now and then.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

IUPUI is certainly one of the biggest schools I love going to. The atmosphere of the school is really fantastic, with people who are ready to help others when needed, social clubs on and active in being part of life, bringing the school closer for all students and the experiences we can get from those opportunities. A wide range of classes to take would make the journey not so much difficult, but interesting to learn from, and I say this because in different schools, not too many professors are willing to spend time and energy to help students to become successful, which really leads them (students) to not really talk about their struggles. At IUPUI, all the help is there in getting closer to success. I also love the diversity of the school with so many different backgrounds from all locations being at one huge place. It makes it a rich place where all different cultures meet, sharing their life to all in the school. Words are difficult to explain the greatness of the school, but my thoughts are this: If you have anything like IUPUI has, then you are not alone, for one shares the same footsteps as this school gives out.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

IUPUI was not my primary choice, nor do I believe was it a primary choice for a majority of its currently enrolled students. Although I cannot scrutinize the academic provisions of this university, I can certainly degrade its political atmosphere and social life. IUPUI's faculty and student body portray an extremely biased political agenda, that exudes support for liberal ideologies, but is highly intolerant of other perspectives. They take pride in their open minded culture; however, they are not nearly as open minded as they claim. If a student were to advocate any type of conservative agenda, or even vocalize an opinion that acts in opposition to popular liberal values, they are not only scrutinized heavily by students, but almost harrassed. I've learned already, from witnessing various confrontations around campus, that it is better to keep my mouth shut regarding social and political topics. It's disheartening that I feel that uncomforatbilility, as I know there are a great abundance of students who feel a similar way. Tolerance and compassion goes both ways, and that is a philosophy this University does not publicly preach enough. Another issues I have with this university is its overly strict regulations and social restrictions. Not only is IUPUI a dry campus, but the On-Campus police are prone to ticketing students despite VERY limited parking, pulling students over for speeding in areas that don't effectively present speed limit signs, busting parties within minutes, and confronting students for vaping and smoking. The university is in Indianapolis, which is one of the country's most crime ridden locations... Why is their focus on students doing such harmless and minute things and not the homeless people who can commonly be found sleeping around campus, or the increased gun-violence in surrounding areas. Due to this strict supervision, there is virtually no social atmosphere or culture associated with this university. It's all work no play. That's a very boring and tedious atmosphere that I had hoped to avoid in college. There are no Fraternity or Serority houses, the dorms are bland and uneventful, and off-campus housing is a hot-bed for law enforcement desperately attempting to bust parties. There is no where to have fun on this campus. Commuting students never spend their weekends on campus, and neither do the dorm and housing residents. It's become common knowledge that the only way for IUPUI students to have a good time is to travel to IU, Purdue, or Ball State for the weekend, where the administration actually allows its students to have a little fun indulging in their college experience. Sheltering your students prevents them from learning the healthy balance of discipline and socializing; furthermore, I do not believe IUPUI is preparing its students for life after college nearly as much as they claim. I did not expect much coming into this semester, which is why I'm neither disappointed nor surprised with how uneventful this semester has been. I appreciate the education they have provided me thus far, but I also cannot wait to transfer to a more cultured and unbiased school next summer. This school is not prestigious enough to posses boast such an enjoyable and opportunistic culture. This is the most cultureless university I have ever experienced. Not a college for students wanting to enjoy their college experience. Making memories is just as important as making a future. I am very upset I allowed myself to attend this university.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

IUPUI is an okay college overall. It just really depends on your area of study and whether or not you stay on campus for housing (dorms). Things tend to be expensive and parking is scarce. You'll spend around an hour and a half trying to find a parking spot, so make sure you get there on time if you commute.
