Student & Graduate Reviews

3.4 out of 5.0
Degree: Library Science
Graduation Year: 2013

I chose this program because it was a hybrid program, mostly in person but some online offerings. I also applied for and received a graduate assistantship, which was huge. Recently they have moved to online only, something which appeals to me much less.
2.2 out of 5.0
Degree: History
Graduation Year: 2011

Overall, I had good professors and learned a lot from the classes. The curriculum was well designed and hands on. I just wish there were some form of job placement / coaching offered to new graduates.

Degree: Architecture
Graduation Year: 2017

Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis is a highly ranked urban university in the heart of downtown Indianapolis. I was accepted into the Urban Principal ship program and began my classes in the summer of 2016. It has been an amazing and enlightening experience. The professors and my fellow students have opened my eyes to many new ideas and the way I view many of the issues affecting our society today. I feel that I will truly be prepared to undertake the enormous task of becoming a principal in an urban setting.

4.58 out of 5.0
Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2018

Pros: I just finished my first semester and the program has great faculty with a solid reputation. They take this program very seriously and it is a rigorous course load. It is affordable for the quality of education. Cons: there is not as much interaction with the professor because it is a hybrid online/in person course.
4.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros - student leaders are making great strides towards making the school better, and the new administration is much more receptive to feedback. Cons - having 9 campuses is always going to be a challenge, no matter how much we try to unify the curriculum and increase opportunities for students to interact.
4.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2018

Great program in an environment that is more collaborative than competitive.
4.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2016

I've had a great time. The course selection is varied, and they offer some excellent programs. The professors and administrators are friendly and accessible. The school is located downtown to a vibrant area and a bustling legal community. Honestly I could get into more detail on each of these positives if need be. The only negatives about this school are the parking situation--if you can walk or shuttle, that's much better than the limited parking, which is understandable given that it's a downtown campus--and the occasional on-campus crime report of an attempted mugging or suspicious character. However, I'm pretty sure these incident rates are on par with other campuses, especially urban ones, and I've never felt the slightest bit unsafe here.
4.17 out of 5.0
Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2017

Cons: Public transportation to the school is not very good. Parking around campus has becoming increasingly harder Pros: Location is excellent. Allows for plenty of networking opportunities with lawyers and judges around town. Faculty is amazing and always willing to help.
