If you'd like to major in binge drinkingQuite BrightEnglish
If you'd like to major in binge drinking then IUP is the place for you. Don't plan on going out for coffee and good conversation... the most conversation you can expect here is the person holding the beer bong chanting, "Chug! Chug! Chug!" I'm currently in the process of transferring to a school that will spend their budget on a student's education rather than rehabilitation classes for the campus alcoholics.

IUP has a lot of very high majors,Super BrilliantComputer Science
IUP has a lot of very high majors, now we even have the NSA (National security agency) helping us with one of the majors (Information Assurance/Cyber Security), The crim department is one of the best in the country, the Comp Sci department is excellent, and it's a very big education school with El. Ed. and secondary education departments, which IUP was built upon.

The university wastes money on building pointless wallsQuite BrightChemistry
The university wastes money on building pointless walls around the campus, re-carpeting and remodeling the president's house and office at least once a year, building a parking garage that commuters still have to pay to use, in addition to many other pointless expenditures. Money is NOT spent on the educational aspect of the school and students are often forced to rely on ancient equipment, less than adequate supplies, and computers that can be traced back to the 1980's. Budget cuts are now reducing the number of professors which is leading to even more overcrowding in many classes as well as inexperienced professors teaching subjects that they have no background in. The key to surviving at IUP is to find one or two of the great faculty members that are still here and stick with them - research, writing grant proposals, etc. You will learn more through outside research and activities than in the actual classes.
