Majors: There aren't really many difficulties to enroll into a program, just express your major on your application, and you start that program.

5 College Freshman

Facilities: Walking around campus, you always see different groups hanging out, and because campus is not so big, almost everyone is acquainted. People are always in the Wellness center(rec center), athletes are always on the field or in the weight room, and mostly everyone hangs out at the greek circle.

3 College Freshman

Facilities: The only thing I have recognized as unique is some of the programs we have going at the school around holidays, such as Light the Way, Christmas lights are put on all the trees on main campus and are lite up every night until New Years.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: Everything on campus is within walking distance, but even if a student does not feel like walking, he/she can always catch the shuttle that runs 5 days a week from 7a to 7p.

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Even though it may seem strict, it is logical, and for the better of the students!

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Everything is laid back unless it effects student safety, no one is looking to get people in trouble, but if your caught the school has a no tolerance policy.

3 College Freshman

Weather: It's been rainy, but the library rents out umbrellas,

Drug Safety: If you don't get involved with people that party, or just don't go, while living on campus you will be completely in effected, but if you choose to find parties and drugs, you will easily.

College Freshman

Greek Life: I avoided anything to do with Greek life, my roommates are trying to get in (freshman) it doesn't seem to big of a deal, they frat guys are pretty nice, I don't think there's any bad hazing

Campus Housing: There isn't much of a "community" atmosphere in the dorm building, some of them are old but have a nice homelike feeling to them, the newer buildings feel more like hotels. Everything is really clean, house keepers clean all the bathrooms weekly, there are lounges on most dorm floors with TVs

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.
