Describes the faculty as:
I was wrong.
Once I got to IUP as an incoming student it did not take long for the facade to crumble. I did not make friends (and still have not over a month into the semester), and someone had the audacity to tell me I would not make friends because I don't go out to parties. Long story short, if you don't drink you'll have a hard time finding people who want to befriend you.
On another level, I've found the academics here to be lacking. I've yet to be intellectually stimulated or challenged by my coursework, even in my 200 level classes which require prerequisites.
I plan to transfer as soon as this semester comes to a close. The advice I offer to anyone considering IUP is if you graduated in the top of your class, are seeking somewhat challenging academics and believe there is more to college life that partying every day of the week, IUP is not for you.
