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.
