5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It's a wonderful school with great faculty

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love UNI and the way everything's set up! I just finished orientation and I liked the way we were able to stay on campus over night and activities were planned for us. I also liked how smoothly everything went, there was no delays or problems during orientation.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I like UNI. The housing is great. The food is can usually tell when there are going to be people visiting because that's when we have a good variety of food. Parking is kind of hard to find at times and people just walk in the crosswalks without looking to see if any cars are coming no matter what time of the day. I just wish I lived closer because it's a long drive.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love my school, I just wish I chose a college that was more cost friendly.

5 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I came back to UNI to complete my degree after a long absence. They have been wonderful in working with me in order to get my program completed. I am very proud to say that I will graduate this coming December.

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.
