My experience at this fine establishment has been very rewarding I would say. I've got the chance to meet many new and different people that share ideas similar yet different from yours as well. The atmosphere he is welcoming and fun, however the winters here are annoying because it gets really really cold. I like the faculty, well some more than others, when it comes to class and one on one time. They're actually concerned for your well-being and they want you to prosper/succeed in whatever your endeavors may be. The professors are very encourage, they instill in you the willpower and work ethic to accomplish anything.The social life here at this university is by far amazing. Everybody here loves to meet new people, make lifelong friends, an have fun while doing it! I mean what else can you ask for. To conclude I like my school and I enjoy being here. Receiving this scholarship will help further my education and endeavors here at this university.
As of today, my experience at Indiana University of Pennsylvania has been great! All of my professors have been such a please to be in class with. The food availability on campus is absolutely enormous as well. But what is really striking about this University is the students. The students that attend this University are so kind and caring towards one another. We all treat each other like family and that is what really stands out for me at this University. Overall, my experience at Indiana University of Pennsylvania has been excellent thus far and I am looking forward to school here in the future!
If you make the right decisions and focus on your academics, this is a great place to go! The "party school" mentality is overly exaggerated by many people, as any school can be considered a "party school". From my experience, many of the professors I've had were very helpful and provided assistance to students with office hours and others ways they found possible. I love it here and think the whole campus and atmosphere is generally pretty friendly. There are a lot of resources when it comes to academics and other types of assistance, many people just don't make use of them. Overall this is a great place and, like any other college experience, it is what you make of it!
