This is my first semester at IUPUI, I transferred from Ivy Tech Community College, where I obtained an Associate of Science in Human Services. My first connection with the IUPUI staff was insightful, made me want to work harder, and allowed me to feel with the proper steps I too can become a Jaguar! During orientation week I felt a sense of pride and togetherness as "established students" gave us incoming students a tour of the campus, everyone seemed connected in one way or the other- this experience made me eager to embark on my journey at IUPUI. As a first time generation college student having to navigate through the system and figure out how to apply for scholarships, grants, and other gifts for my educational funding was extremely overwhelming and can be slightly confusing. I just want to take what I already know and marry it to the knowledge that's to come, so that I can best serve my surrounding communities.

IUPUI is a perfect urban campus surrounded by top hospitals, a peaceful city, and endless opportunities. I enjoyed IUPUI being a smaller campus because I found that it was easier to make relationships with teachers, stay more focused on my studies, and excel to the best of my ability. One factor I would like to see change is parking on campus. Parking was very difficult to find on campus. If there was a way to provide more parking for students, I think it would be very appreciated for all those commuting to campus!
I love it here at IUPUI! There's a lot of classes offered, and there's so much to do and be involved in. The staff and professors here and geared towards your success, and there are so many resources here on campus to help you go farther with your education. The community that is built here on campus is very welcoming and inviting. My only complaint and the main reason I can't give IUPUI and 5-Star rating is the cost. Many colleges provide a lot of resources to students to help them fund their education, but the prices students have to pay for basic needs like meal plans and parking are a bit much.
