Just like you, I wanted to go to a college that felt like home. But it needed to be far enough away that it didn’t feel like I was staying home.
I wanted to see what was beyond my
home in Philadelphia, to get out of my bubble and take a chance on myself. IUP is only a few hours from where I was raised, but in some ways it’s a world away. It feels like a big university in a small town, with that close-knit community that I hoped to find.
Here at IUP, I’ve been given opportunities to grow, not just as a student, but as an adult. I’ve worked side-by-side with professors who challenge me to grow and reinforce the lessons they’ve passed on. I’ve made a lot of great friends, and I’ve found my niche in a university that has a lot to offer.
I found everything I needed at IUP, and I know you will, too.
