3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: It is difficult to get more money and is a very expensive university. Reasons for my intrest in scholarships elsewhere.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Not apart of Greek life so I would not know for sure.

5 College Junior

Academics: My major is Graphic Design. Our program is very small. With each senior class around maybe fifteen students. The program is quite small as far as number of students and faculty, however this is a plus as each of us gains a lot of attention and critiques for our projects. We also get to know each other very well. The small size doesn't affect the quality. Students from our tiny program enter local, regional, and national design shows and competitions and win many times. The workload is strenuous though. Be prepared to work, a lot.

5 College Junior

Academics: I have had wonderful experiences with all the professors I've had. They have been knowledgeable, and take an interest in their students' educations. The small classes also have something to do with that. ;)

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: The cafeteria is a tad expensive. I've never paid myself, but I have eaten there. I generally like the food. However it's rarely better than average, and sometimes worse than. The "Chick-Fil-A" Express on campus is quite good, although their prices are also a little high. I usually prefer to go across the street to Bill Miller's.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: The Greek life here is noticeable, as there are many Greek events and almost always some Greek presence in the circle. Almost everyone has at least one friend who is Greek or associates with them. Some have better reps than others.

4 College Student

Greek Life: as a greek student, we do not single out other students based on being greek or not. we do community service hours which help with the requirements for graduation.

The University of the Incarnate Word has so much to offer. From the academics and excellent professors to the life-long friendships, you will not look back and regret coming to UIW. Most of the students really enjoy their experience at UIW. The friendships formed here usually last through college and beyond. There are also more genuine friendships since UIW is a small school, and keeping in contact with fellow classmates is very easy because you see the same people almost daily. UIW is a very diverse school, so it is like a "small world." The memories formed at UIW are endless.

The education is top-of-the-line, as it thoroughly prepares each student to excel in his or her desired field of study. The smaller atmosphere allows for more personal attention for each student. The relationships between students and teachers is very strong, and professors know students by their names because of the low student-to-teacher ratio. Sure, you will hear complaints here and there, whether it be about residence life or the cafeteria food, but keep in mind that everyone has different tastes, and nothing is perfect. Overall, students are very satisfied with their education at UIW and all that it brings them not only while they are in school but after they graduate as well. Professors and advisers make sure that their students are more than prepared for their careers and for whatever life may bring in the future.
