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!

When everyone need's to use the campus network for something important, say registering for next semester's courses, it's horrible to be one campus. Stay far away! The screens will freeze, the computers will take forever to load your content, and you will be left frustrated and angry. Other than that, the amount of time it takes for campus computers to log someone into the network, takes 5 minutes maybe. Most students are used to maybe 1-2 minutes, and they don't like the wait. Internet Explorer is an annoyance, honestly. I prefer Google Chrome to any of the software. On any regular day, the computers work fairly well.

Incarnate Word boasts an incredible variety of races, ethnic groups, and religion affiliations throughout campus. Because of the wide variety of the aforementioned tennants of diversity, there is no shortage of learning opportunities for students who have little to no experience of living outside of their culture. Do not be afraid to ask someone why they do things differently; as long as you are genuine, serious, and considerate about your inquiries, you will learn much about different cultures throughout campus!
