I like IUP a lot academically, I feel challenged every semester and the professors here take their jobs seriously. The local area is much different than I am accustomed to, but being a city dweller all of my life makes me appreciate this kind of different that IUP has to offer. The dorms are quite luxurious compared to that of many schools I've visited, and I never experienced much of a problem with the cleanliness of the dorms either. I would highly recommend this school if you are looking for genuine diversity, a nicer country-side area, and tons of fun activity in student life on campus!

The Indiana University of Pennsylvania (IUP) is a wonderful institution for higher education. IUP has a strong network of professors from a variety of backgrounds and experiences, which allows for a multitude of learning opportunities. The campus is absolutely stunning with its mixture of up-to-date academic buildings, alongside historic buildings that have been standing since the incorporation of the university. The university aims to have a very diverse community of faculty and students, which it successfully accomplishes through its various academic programs and events. The university is nestled in the small city of Indiana, Pennsylvania. There are plenty of restaurants, shops, and bars along Philadelphia Street to keep students entertained in the evenings and on the weekends. Overall, I have received a quality education at IUP, and I would certainly recommend the university to others!
I am going into my sophomore year and had experiences with IUP. I feel as though it is more to experience but so far and overall, I enjoy being at IUP. The campus is beautiful and huge. It makes you feel at home. The campus is diverse in some ways but could use improvements. The food could be better but there are many options but of course, it is college and you'll eventually get tired of the food. Academics are very good! Depending on which classes you take, you actually learn something. Online people say that the professors do not care about you and your work but that is false information. You have to be sure you let your professor know who you are. IUP isn't a party school like everyone portrays it as.
