Loveneet - 03/18/2021

Even though I'm a commuter student now, I still lived on campus for about a week or so, and it was a great time. Although I found on and off-campus living both comfortable, it doesn't mean others will too. However being on campus helps with being around the campus more, getting to know others, more opportunities, and engaging in activities. I didn't get to experience much of college life, because I live off-campus and I can't do almost an hour of a drive back and forth every day, and my classes were all online. Teachers are also very approachable, and the university has many resources to help students with anything they need.

Tyler - 09/17/2020

I have visited this campus twice and love everything about it. Everyone is so welcoming and make you feel welcomed. This college is my number one pick of all the colleges I have been accepted too. I was just there yesterday for a special nurses day visit.

My overall opinion of the University of Indianapolis is that if you like a small, close-knit campus, this is the college for you! There are great opportunities for on-campus jobs, as well as off-campus jobs as the Greenwood Mall is 15 minutes away. If you're a partier, the party scene can be dead, so you may want to look around downtown Indy for something to do with your friends. Academically, I would say UIndy is excelling in that area! Of course, there are some downsides, but especially as a Criminal Justice major, I feel we have some of the best professors on campus! I really love this school and everything it has to offer.

Lizbeth

The University of Indianapolis is a university I am looking forward to for a bright future. From the moment I found out about the opportunities if offers and how it can impact my future, I knew it was the one. One of my favorite features of it is the small class size. It's a private University which means that the smaller the class size, the better for my education and to make connections with my professors. It's a campus where you can make relationships with new people and with faculty members. The moment I went to visit, it caught my eye and I am now proud to say that I will be a future student at Uindy.

University of Indianapolis FAQS

  1. What is the Acceptance Rate at University of Indianapolis?

    The fall 2020 acceptance rate for University of Indianapolis is 86%. 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 _____.

  2. What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

    First, I would advise the parents to provide support to their children while making a choice on a college. Sometimes teenagers need a little push in the right direction. Help the teenagers set up college visits and go with them. Showing interest in their schooling and helping them fill out forms will make the process less stressful. For all students, I recommend finding a college that best suits them. Try not to worry about how far away it is and how much their parents will miss them. Listen to others suggestions, but in the end make a decision based on what the student wants and needs to be successful and have fun. Begin early searching for the school best suited for the the student. While in college, I recommend the parents to continue showing support and be ready for many break downs. I suggest that all students do not procrastinate and balance their time between fun and school work. School work is important, but it is also very important to not be depressed by so much work that one forgets the importance of being in college.

  9. What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

    The most frustrating thing about my school is how difficult the general education courses are. I feel like I can't concentrate on my classes required for my major because the general education courses take up alot of credit hours and the school puts so much emphasis on these courses. Despite how small my school is, many of the professors are difficult to reach outside of class and do not look to make the learning experience more personable.

  10. What's unique about your campus?

    The best thing about my school is the fact that it is a smaller campus. A normal class has no more than 25 students, which is very helpful for students who need more help in certain subjects. The professors are all very good at what they do and are always very open to helping if a student needs help. The fact that the campus is small also helps in the social aspect, it is much easier to form closer friendships when you see certain people all of the time.
