Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

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.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I did attend the first campus game with the tail gating but it didn't seem to have too many people attending. I feel like if more people would attend, the teams would get a lot more recognition.

Greek Life: The Greek life seems like it's a great way for individuals to meet other individuals but I never really hear of any events that go on.

College Freshman

Nightlife: I personally haven't experienced night life on campus because I'm a commuter, but I would imagine it's not too crazy.

5 College Freshman

Computers: The technology is great on campus! there is very reliable wifi available along with just computers and printers in general. The charge rate for printing is very affordable and extremely convenient.

Off-Campus Housing: There are some housing options around school that aren't necessarily the nicest but they are convenient and not too expensive.
