My experience overall at IUP, has been great! Since I came here, I have been offered numerous opportunities that I know I would not have had if I attended the community college back home. Some of these opportunities even came with internships for the future. What I love most about IUP is the different organizations that you can get involved in and make many friends.

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!
Indiana University of Pennsylvania (IUP) was very accommodating and adaptable during the transition from face-to-face learning to online learning. All the professors that I had were very easy to contact and would respond in a very timely manner. Zoom sessions were optional, but everyone attended to receive the instruction for the week. Professors provided a modified schedule for the rest of the semester to keep the students on tack. Nothing was sprung on the students. Overall, I hate online learning but IUP adjusted well to the situation and I was able to maintain my grades during the time and continue my learning.
