The professors at this

Jun 27 2014Education
The professors at this university think that they are Harvard educated but in actuality they are no more than community college graduates who could not land a real job at a real university like Harvard or MIT.

DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILD TO THIS SCHOOL

Apr 24 2014PreMed and Medical
DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILD TO THIS SCHOOL. Your pay a lot of money for sub par education. Look at the reviews, half of the teachers the students can not understand, or the professors are horrible. The only cater to freshman. My child will be a sophomore next year, they are not able to take one class that is part of her major as all of the classes are already closed. The school tells you when you can schedule for next year. The few that are open still, the professors are "to be avoided - can not understand" Then when she goes to schedule, the system will not allow you to schedule, they receive an error "need approval"! Mind you ADVISER told her which classes to take! THIS SCHOOL IS A JOKE! They need to focus on education not the suites! Housing is more expensive than tuition! WAKE UP IUP!

Warning do not listen to the bullshit they

Jan 04 2014Education
Warning do not listen to the bullshit they will hand feed you during visit and orientation. They come off and brainwash as IUP is completely perfect and the world is just beautiful. Its not. First I'll strait with the student body.The people here are rude, selfish, and very judgmental. Considering that this school virtually accepts anyone with a plus, the student here care about getting wasted, puking in bushes, and getting on the TV Show Campus PD. In fact if you are not into the drug or drinking scene people WILL Treat you different. Most students skip class Thursday-Friday as they are pre gaming for their night out. And as for the parties, they suck. All the places to party at are in some creeps smelly basement in the bare ass of Indiana. For academics, the classes were unchallenging and simply a waste of time. To make deans list here you simply need a 3.25 which is very easy to obtain (Not for most people at this school though) the school forces you to take crap classes you don't need. For example as an education major I was forced to take a terrible music class, with over 200 students and a crazy professor who loved to force us to salsa dance. The food is shit nothing more to say. The administration DOES NOT CARE ABOUT YOU AT ALL. My advisor was some jerk young kid who bragged about how he flunked out of WVU once before graduating. He made fun of my goals and plans calling them "Stupid" When I decided to transfer, getting this school to do anything for you was like pulling teeth. I had to go to several offices numerous times to argue with people on why my transcripts where not sent out. Their answer was "We didn't feel like it" My personal favorite was when I had a harassing roommate. When I expressed my concerns, the housing office forced ME to move out and into some random other room. Hows that fair. Simply put: DO NOT GO TO THIS "SCHOOL" its basically an over priced playground. You will be miserable. In fact you will do the same as I did and transfer after 1 SEMESTER. Please save yourself years of hell and actually go to a real University
