I think IPFW is a great school overall. We have a great amount of diversity and the overall level of maturity and kindness from the student body makes it a great place to further my education. We have great access to wireless internet throughout the campus, computer labs well placed so there is never one out of range, good food at a great price to help me get through a day of 4-5 classes!
Overall IPFW is a really good school. It is a community campus. I commute from home. The housing though is really nice. There are three restaurants on campus. I like IPFW because it is close to home and all the professors are friendly. The students that attend are also really friendly. IPFW has a really good staff. They are all extremely helpful in guiding you for your major as well as other advice. IPFW is growing tremendously because of these traits.
