IUP is an outstanding school for a fantastic price! I would not pick any other school to attend I love it here. They have many majors to choose from, 15000+ people lots of clubs, greek life, parties and many opportunities to help you advance in life and your career. We have beautiful facilities here on campus and the best SUITES! I have ever seen at any college in PA! They are like hotel rooms. BEAUTIFUL!

In terms of tuition value, you can't beat IUP. The professors will take the time to learn your name and get to know you, even in lower-level classes- IUP is not terribly big, so even my freshman lecture classes never exceeded about 100-110 students. However, when I say the student body is diverse, I mean that in every way possible. It does have students that work hard and strive to make the most out of their education, but it also has students that seem to think college is one big fiesta. The latter group, unfortunately, is what seems to be the face of the university. IUP is big enough to have the classes you need, but is small enough for the professors to know you as a person and not just for the work you put out. To succeed at IUP, you not only need to have a strong work ethic, but remember that you get much more face time with profs at IUP than at mega-universities where you are referred to by your ID number more often than your name *coughPennStatecough* and they will develop an opinion of you not only academically, but personally. Consequently, make sure you mind your p's and q's around professors here, because they WILL remember you come time when you need letters of reommendation.

The only real downside to this campus is the parties. I'm here for my education and only my education. I started college at the age of 21 so most of my party phase was dished out between then and high school. I am surprised nobody has asked me to buy them alcohol yet. Living off campus isn't much of an escape from the noise. In fact it gets worse. My neighbors have been arrested on several occasions for noise violations. But as with all things you will get used to it. I learned to just run a fan at night to block out the noise. As far as the school goes my department is amazing. I have really helpful professors and the grad students are always willing to help. This is not true for all departments though. I have heard many horror stories about unhelpful faculty in other departments but I don't know enough first hand about them to give a definitive answer. If my department were anything like the stories I hear I would probably transfer schools.
