We visited IUPUI yesterday; D17 is interested in Media Arts. We got to meet with people from admissions and advising, as well as a few current students.
Nice campus. Lots of green space for an urban campus. Very close to a vibrant downtown.
The students (who are of course hand picked for this event) were enthusiastic about the Informatics school. They report accessible faculty who work closely with the students.
Lots of good toys in the Informatics building.
Opportunities for internships were represented to be plentiful.
Lots of places to sit and plug in your devices (necessary for a commuter school, obviously)
Only four other Informatics students at this session, allowing for lots of personal interaction.
Flexibility of programs. Can shift emphasis/major without too much problem.
Some organizational SNAFUs, which seems common for IUPUI (they need to have an Informatics student overhaul their website, for one thing!)
Did not get to see inside the dorms - I didn’t really understand why.
Food court gets reeeeeeaaaaaaaly crowded at noon.
At the moment it has held its spot in D’s hierarchy, tied for first with Bradley.
