3 College Sophomore

Academics: Most of the studying is done in the library, dorms, or study rooms

2 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: There's not much you can do, it's really boring and so constrained

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Nothing ever specifically happened to me or my friends so my concerns are not really major

2 College Sophomore

Facilities: It's really old, needs a lot of renovating

2 College Sophomore

Facilities: It's really old, needs a lot of renovating and the students are taking too much money out of their pockets to pay for their things

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It's really expensive, but good for people who can handle the stress

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: The only good places are McDonald's, Sonic, and Starbucks

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Have not really been in a sorority

4 College Junior

Academics: Personally, I have had trouble signing up for certain classes every semester, but my advisor is great about helping me fix things

4 College Junior

Academics: The teachers in my major are awesome! !! They are great people and they certainly know what they are talking about. They are also very available to the students.

3 College Junior

Facilities: Add college students, we need some down time to relax and hang out with friends. Our game room is a shame to its name. There needs to be more effort to create a more fun filled experience when students are looking to kill some time between classes. I know we have the money to do it, let's get it done.

3 College Junior

Facilities: Our wellness center is decent, but as a school that had moved up in division and is constantly growing, we need a bigger facility. Plus, we don't have many campus events, and if wet do, they are not very well advertised.

3 College Student

Computers: Wireless access is pretty much available everywhere on campus.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: You can make your experience great if you really engage yourself.

3 College Student

Academics: Not a lot of internship opportunities available.

4 College Student

Academics: The professors are extremely personable if you take the time to get to know them.

3 College Student

Campus Housing: The process to get your housing is extremely stressful.

2 College Student

Parking: Its extremely hard to find any kind of parking in the middle of the day.

2 College Student

Guys & Girls: The people here are pretentious, and the few guys that are attractive are usually full of themselves and rude.

4 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: There are a ton of places to choose from, and there are a great variety right on broadway so it is extremely convenient.

2 College Student

Greek Life: No one really pays any attention to it.

2 College Student

Campus Dining: The dining hall closes by 8 each night, and the food itself is extremely bland. Your best bet is to go eat at the ICC.

3 College Student

Athletics: The student body overall is pretty apathetic when it comes to athletics, while administration tries to force it down students throats.

4 College Student

Health & Safety: The campus is relatively small making it very easy to get to and from places quickly and safely, the only problem is when its pitch black and you have to walk to hillside alone because the stadium lights are off without any sign of security.

3 College Student

Scholarships: You can get what you need if you're constantly on top of it, but expect to do most of the work with little help.

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.
