“At IPFW, teachers know students by name and the student-teacher communication is phenomenal,” says current student Kirston Warfield. “We all look out for one another and the staff genuinely cares about the students.”


While IPFW continues to expand, it still holds to its small-campus feel. “IPFW is forever growing,” says Warfield. “But no matter how big IPFW gets, it will always maintain a sense of community.”
