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.
Student A: What schools are you applying to?
Student B: I got accepted to all that I applied to...I'm going to IUP.
Student A: You mean I Usually Party?
Student B: Yeah, but I plan to actually go to class, study, and not be a drunken asshat.
