UIW is great if you want to dedicate yourself to academics. Very welcoming to everybody. However, sometimes athletes get a sense of priority. Small classes make the learning environment great as well as the friendliness of professors and students.

I like it better than the other school I attended but I feel advisors just say yes to classes.
