I started their BSN Program this fall, and I am very satisfied with the campus and the program itself. All the faculty members are extremely helpful and truly want you to succeed in the program. The campus is beautiful and I see a lot of diversity within the students and faculty. Transferring to UIW was pleasantly smooth and everybody went out of their way to ensure I had everything completed before the program started. The local area is awesome regarding places to eat and there is a ton to do if you are not on campus but want to explore the area. The only complaint I have is the parking can be frustrating and constantly have to follow someone that is walking to their car in order to find a place to park. If you have classes very early in the morning, you should not have that problem, but if you come mid-morning or afternoon, it is a different story.

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 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!
