This is a great starter college for those unsure as to what the university experience is really like. I stayed there for two years, got my feet wet, and transferred to a bigger, better university. My time there was well spent.
I absolutly love IUP. all of the teachers i have come across are brilliant and incredibly approachable. i think that the facilities are very well maintained and the look of the campus speaks for itself. i dont think i have ever lived in a more beautiful area in my life. the social life speaks for itself. its insane. i read that it is a public ivy as well. so it doesnt get much better than that, i love IUP!!!!!
IUP provides a stong educational background that provides the basic tools to be a productive member of today's business community. Much like any other college you will not have every skill necessary for your first job. That is not the purpose of undergrad. You recieve the information that allows a company to train you quickly to meet there specefic needs. As for the social scene it is truly amazing. I strongly recomend becoming a member of the Greek community, it provided me with the best memories of my life. Also it provided the social and networking skills that are proving very valuable. As for the level of instruction I found it to be excellent. I am currently a law student and my undergrad profs. were every bit as good as those I have in law school. If you choose IUP you will not regret it.
