I absolutely love my school! They always have some kind of activities going on where you can expand your social circle and make new friends! The staff, for the most part, is really approachable and fair. I do not live on campus, but I have heard nothing bad about the dorms besides the WiFi, which is probably a given with all those people connected to it at once. They even hold multiple events during finals to help with the stress. The campus is always so clean and the lawn is never less than perfect. The only bad thing is that for commuters, the parking garages and lots fill up very fast and it is basically the Hunger Games getting a parking spot as someone leaves from class. But overall, if I had to pick again, I would not even second guess myself!
Review Indiana University-Purdue University - Fort Wayne
As an exchange student from Puerto Rico studying at IPFW, my experience at the Univ. has been one full of surprises, laughs and great people. I couldn't have picked a better university! The classes are very different from my home town so the professors try and help with the transition as much as they can. The student government always has activities for the students where we can socialize, eat and get free goodies! So overall, #MastodonsRule
IPFW is a college that wants to help their students succeed. They offer many resources for students to help improve their experience at IPFW. There are many clubs and sports to join and activities to participate in. Professor quality is where IPFW slacks in. Many professors hardly speak English, or don't provide good education quality, or even make class a time to speak about politics - yes politics. There are good professors here you just have to know which ones they are and make sure you sign up for their classes before they fill up. Food is alright where they have a wide selection. Parking can be a hassle at the beginning of the semester but usually thins out in the first month.
