I honestly love attending school here. It's local so I am able to commute and save money on rent, but while on campus I have access to the full college experience. The food on campus is overpriced and mostly nasty but I think that is normal for college cafeterias. They used to cater in local chain restaurants such as chik-fil-a and Panda Express, and that was worth it and delicious. If I could change one thing about IPFW that would be it. Bring back the Panda!

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!
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
