IUP is a very good school, it is very diversified. It gives you the chance to form lifelong friendship with people from other countries. Also has a very good international department. I love it and I'm glad I made the decision to attend this university.

IUP is a reasonably priced school with reasonable accommodations. I'm not incredibly impressed with it nor am I disappointed. If there is one thing I wish I knew before I came here it is how expensive everything is and how impractical and inconvenient the money system here is for students. You have at least three or four different accounts to use for different things and sometimes it costs money to add to those accounts, laundry for example, which seems a little greedy to charge an extra fee for something you are already paying for. Also, almost everything in the food courts either costs extra or doesn't fit on the meal plan so you are forced to constantly use your flex (auxiliary account) for the remaining costs. All in all my experiences here have been generally mild. I don't hate it or love it. But then again I don't take full advantage of most of the facilities, so I'm just telling you what I know about.
