4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I am still living on-campus, but I know that the university offers several fantastic off-campus options.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The off-campus dining options are excellent, but I prefer to eat on-campus with a meal plan.

4 College Freshman

Administration: I believe the adminstration takes care of various issues on the basis of severity.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: The financial aid process is pretty extensive with a low success rate in achieving any financial aid.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: The two different dining centers offer separate perks. For example, Piazza has more custom options for food selection and Rialto has an excellent set up and includes gluten free meals.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus gives students an inside look of what it is truly like to be involved at a university. These students often obtain better grades and participate in positive social environments to enhance their educational experiences.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I have not lived off campus yet but I will next year. The price is not bad for what you will be getting. It depends on where you live but you can find a place pretty close to campus.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are many restaurants to eat at in Cedar Falls, just like any big city.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: For the younger students they mainly go to the bars on the hill where the students who are 21 typically go to the bars on main street or go to house parties.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: The administration can be strict but they are only doing it to help you and it is their job.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Figuring out my finacnical aid every year is a struggle and I believe it could be streamlined. But I received the financial aid I needed and I appreciate that fact.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: I personally loved the dining centers! They had a varitey of food, they were open almost all day, and I didn't have to cook the food. But they best part was they have ice cream at every meal!

Campus Housing: I recommend living in the dorms for at least two years! It's such a great way to meet new people and they are super close to your classes! They also have many activies that you can get involved in that are fun and they are also a way to meet people.

3 College Senior

Local Area: No parking easy to find a place to live.

2 College Senior

Overall Experience: I wouldn't come here again because of the certain things I had to deal with. COPS, PARKING PEOPLE, CLASSMATES THAT WERE RUDE AND UNACCEPTING.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: Class size and professors were great at the school. The classes that were offered were fine.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: The degree I will receive is just a piece of paper that shows I made it through this hell of a school.

5 College Senior

Health & Safety: I think the main reason this university is still here because of the safety on the campus. The campus is in the middle of a very clean and crime less non violent city.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: Nerds and smart kids that don't throw parties at all.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: The housing off-campus is fair and can be close to campus and cheap.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: All the fast food options any big city has.

1 College Senior

Party Scene: There was a party scene the first two years I went here. The cops have busted every party of my senior year and most of the fun is at the bars that are over capacity and hot. The bar scene is okay here at UNI, but it gets very repetitive, if you were from a city like me (Des Moines) you would go home every weekend because this place gets boring. The people seem to have their cliques and people that they only talk to.

1 College Senior

Administration: The police in Cedar Falls and UNI have ruined my experience here and I have a clean record to show for it. I have never been arrested or detained here, but I have seen over 30 parties get busted and 5 friends arrested in-side of bars for minding their own business. UNI is a very crime less city and the cops have to make their paychecks by arresting kids who are trying to make a better life. I think I speak for a majority of the school when I say F**k the police here in Cedar Falls they have ruined my senior year and all the parties I have went to.

2 College Senior

Scholarships: I was told I only had to turn in the dependent information and other tax information for 2 years I was there. They screwed me over and made me show them my information for the 4 years I was there and told me I was informed with the wrong information. They just don't want to hand out any extra grants and money to their students!

4 College Senior

Campus Food: The dining centers are good and have a good amount to choose from. Iowa and ISU have way better options.
