5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I can't say something bad I've never experienced.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I eat off campus because the cafe provides the same food everyday, plus everything on campus is was to costly. I would rather spend money off campus than on because at least I get to choose, but always eat out get expensive.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Everything is so regular, we eat the same thing everyday. The other options outside the cafe is way to costly, especially since the school is expensive itself.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: On java on the hill, the only thing I've had was chili fries and they were pretty delicious. Chikfila is addicting and I love the gold sauce and their lemonade cause it has the pulp, mostly I would just eat chikfila and cafeteria food when I had cash because I like to see what the cafeteria has.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Theres lots of restuarants near by, like Ihop, a sushi place, jamba juice, bill millers is right across the street and so is HEB.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
