Indiana University of Pennsylvania. Largest school in the PA State
System of Higher Ed, and the only one that confers doctoral degrees. Has a horrible reputation due to extremely low undergrad
admissions standards, giving
it big "party school" image. Eventually, unqualified students are weeded out via one of three paths: a) they
are academically dismissed due to being
a total idiot, b) they
are expelled for behavior violatons (usually alcohol-related), or c) they
withdraw from all their classes and go to trade school. Despite
this, IUP has some very bright
students, and undergrad
classes are taught by top-notch
doctoral-level faculty, almost all of whom have Ph.D's or the equivalent in their fields.
