Current student here

<p>Hello to anybody who might come across this. I'm currently an IUP student and would be more than happy to answer any questions you might have. I'll try and check back here, but you can expect a quicker reply by e-mailing me at wpgrsz11 @ gmail (dot) com. Hope to hear from you!</p>

<p>S is thinking of applying here. He has a 3.0 GPA. He is very interested in a school with great school spirit and a football or basketball team where lots of students come to cheer on the team. We are OOS - do you know if there are many OOS students. Thanks for your help.</p>

<p>While school spirit wouldn't be the first thing that came to my mind, the students certainly get out to support the teams. All sporting events are free for students. Most football games draw good crowd sizes - especially against rivals and Homecoming. OOS students are about 7%. The 93% in-state aren't overwhelming local or Western Pennsylvania residents, as the university has a large Eastern PA population</p>

<p>Does IUP give undergraduates a substantial amount of financial aid and student aid to pay for their education since the institute is ONE OF PA INSTITUTES OF HIGHER EDUCATION?</p>
