Amazing Degrees in Your Own Backyard

Tiffany LaPierre, current student

You don’t have to go far to go farther. IPFW combines the international recognition of Indiana University and Purdue University degrees with the comfort and convenience of staying close to home. This allows working families and returning adults to continue their education without major disruptions to their everyday life—something many IPFW students celebrate.

“For those of us from northern Indiana, IPFW offers a wonderful quality education and degrees from two of the best universities in the state,” says current student Tiffany LaPierre. “But it still allows us to stay close to our families. And when you’re a single mother, that is important.”

Students don’t have to go far away to get the college experience they’ve always dreamed of. An active student life, apartment-style student housing, and get-you-noticed internationally recognized degrees are all right here in our own backyard. For many students like LaPierre who don’t want to sacrifice a great education, IPFW was the right choice.
