I was a student athlete here at IUP, and am going to miss it when I graduate in a month. I studied natural science & mathematics and will be graduating in May and pursuing my dream of being a physical therapist at Thomas Jefferson University this summer. The professors at IUP are very helpful and their number one priority is to see you succeed. I guarantee that if you come here you will make a connection with at least one of your professors throughout your four years here. The campus is very pretty, but can get cold in the winter time. As a student athlete I had all the resources I needed to succeed here and I am sure non-student athletes feel the same way. Overall my four years here have been some of the best years of my life and I can't believe it will be over in just a couple of weeks. GO HAWKS!

IUP is a very big and clean campus. You can meet all types of different people there and experience new things. There are a lot of places to dine I would prefer the crimson cafe or the hub only because not everything in the dining hall is the best. Living on campus is nice but not for everybody you have to deal with rules, staff having access to your room unannounced, unscheduled fire drills but the dorms are nice but expensive. Most classes are not far walking distance so it should be easy to get from and to your next class there are many professors that truly care about their students education you just have to communicate with them and go to office hours TRUST ME! IT HELPS! ALOT! be careful what classes you pick some are just extremely hard and probably a lot easier and cheaper to complete at your nearest community college because once you take a class there you can’t transfer it and take it at another school to pass.
I love how friendly and helpful everyone on campus is. The campus itself is also beautiful, surrounded by rolling hills and big green trees. The blue light system is always present to make sure you feel safe and comfortable. Philadelphia street gives a lovely city vibe to the campus, and there's always student activities going on!
