4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Class sizes are awesome; I've never had a professor who did not know my name or make an effort to get to know me personally.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Even without seeking these opportunities out, I have been contacted at least four times personally or through the department head, about opportunities for jobs and internships that I was recommended for and they were interested in me.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Little to no crime occurs on campus, but when it does, students are notified immediately, whether the situation is resolved or is ongoing. UNI Police are accessible and work to keep campus safe and secure, offering services like escorting students across campus at night if they don't feel safe for any reason. I personally have never felt unsafe on campus, even walking across campus alone late at night.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I've lived on campus for two years now and I am coming back next year for sure! Dorm life is great, there's a strong community and so many opportunities to make connections on campus and get involved with residence life!

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I don't have much experience with the greek life on campus. I am part of a band fraternity, Kappa Kappa Psi, but since we are a service-based fraternity we aren't actually a "part" of the greek community. I have never had a negative interaction with any Greek, and they seem to be strong leaders on campus and in the community.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: I have been fortunate enough to attend some huge games, such as when UNI beat #1 ranked UNC at the McLeod center. The atmosphere is incredible and nothing compares to the Dome on a gameday. The facilities are top-notch, even for non-athletes (and band kids) who use them on a regular basis.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have had incredible experiences and so many opportunities offered to me at this university. Through marching band alone I've formed a family, and gotten to travel to London and soon will be travelling to Rome. I have made millions of memories and participated in so many traditions and I feel so at home here. I would not hesitate to do it all again.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel completely safe on campus, even from day one. I walk back home at midnight from work and I don't feel like I need protection. When I do there is police always patrolling and blue lit up stands with help buttons on them.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I had some really great professors. So far my favorite is Doctor Flockstra. She taught my General Chemistry 1 and 2 class and has been a really big help in understanding the material and also helping me make important decisions within my life. All of the professors are easy to talk to and want to help you instead of hinder you.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I feel prepared to go on to medical school from UNI. I had the opportunity to get involved into our Pre-Medical club and have many opportunities to talk to medical school advisers and med students. UNI also provides a lot of opportunities for internships and jobs within my field.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus was pretty great. It was really nice to have utilities and the dining centers attached. It was also really close to campus so I got used to campus quicker. I also made many new friends. The only thing I would complain about in the dorms is that sometimes you'll get in trouble for talking to loudly. I was literally talking in my room with the door shut and they said they could hear me down the hall, I didn't think they could. Intensified quite hours sucked as well, it was way to strict.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I think certain sororities and fraternities are better than others in the sense of community service and sisterhood/brotherhood. I wish they partnered more with UNI to do things and that UNI supported them more.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: UNI has many sports and we do well in them, but that is not one of the things UNI is known for or bases there atmosphere off of. To me UNI has many other things they do, then just sports. If anything I think the students at UNI could be a little more interested and supportive in them.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love UNI. It really feels like my home and I don't want to leave it anytime soon. Not only have I had amazing classes that were not filled with students, but I also made real connections with professors, organizations, and on campus activities. UNI is small enough that it was easy for me to get involved and take on leadership early. It has allowed me to follow my dreams and has aided me along the way.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The school. stay on top of informing their students and providing the services they need.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have had a variety of experiences while attending UNI. The classes are great and offer a variety of information and experiencing.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The student career services helped me get a job and build some study habits.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: living on campus has helped me get more involved with the social surroundings

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: We get a lot of visits from bigger school with bigger school with more diverse sororities and fraternities; we could use more diversity in our Greek life.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I love attending the basketball games and hearing the students cheer.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Since i arrived on campus there has not been a dull moment; there is always something to do on campus.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel very safe and they send out emails

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It was hard to find new friends and adjusting to classes

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It was hard to interact during lectures. I found it very stressful

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I do not get involved
