Overall, our university is a nice place to study and get your education. I truly believe in the values of the Sister's of Charity--Education, Service, Truth, Innovation, and Faith. Our University is growing and changing rapidly but it still preserving has a small campus feel environment. The people in the community are helpful, caring and engaged in the development of the student outside of the classroom. I love that the university is really close proximity to the airport, downtown and easily accessible to fun venues. I love the university and hope you do well if you choose to attend a Catholic Institution. You will not regret your experience at UIW! Home of the Cardinals!

I really love the environment of this university. Everyone is very friendly and it's a beautiful campus. It is not too big and not too small -- it is just the right size for comfort! I can't explain how amazing the professors are. I've never seen so much passion for teaching like I have seen from these professors. They are extremely educated in their field and their love for their students is very evident. There is always something going on around campus -- clubs looking to recruit, volunteering opportunities, free educational seminars, etc. The students are very nice as well as the campus employees (cafe, police, nuns). I absolutely love this school so much!

I transferred to this university from another local university because of their online program. After being hired by a local company and working full-time hours, I had to find a different school, one that had an online program. Not only did UIW meet this requirement, but they also had classes for working adults, such as night and weekend classes. I am currently in the latter program, which is called ADCAP. It is a program that allows adults to complete full four-year degrees completely with night, weekend, and blended (online and classroom) classes. The educators here are the best and very dedicated to the students. The discounts for veterans are second to none.
