3 College Student

Local Area: Not much to do around campus. The campus police does not make the students feel safe whatsoever.

2 College Senior

Scholarships: There are limited scholarships available from the school for part-time graduate students. For those trying to avoid student loans, please be aware that you will probably have to work full time and use the tuition payment plan.

4 College Senior

Local Area: San Antonio is a pretty conservative place that can be slow to accept change. Apartment and home prices are cheap compared to Austin. If you can find a job, it can be an okay place to live. Please be aware that the salary will probably be way lower than what you would expect.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I have not had any problems with the school as far as the education. Please be aware that the tuition continues to increase every year. Limited scholarships unless you are going online and limited tuition discount program. Appears to be great for military veterans, active duty, and family members. As an online student, tuition increases do not make sense as I am not using the amenities on campus (dining facilities, gym, tutoring, school sports, etc.).

4 College Senior

Majors: Counselors were friendly and application process was not difficult. I did not have any problems. The most important criteria for admissions were GRE scores (if needed) and grades. The most important tip that I can offer is to make sure to give yourself enough time for a decision before your intended enrollment session starts.

4 College Senior

Majors: The teachers know their material and even though I take classes online they expect graduate work to be turned in. The classes are offered on a regular basis so there is no need to wait 2 years for a class to come back into the rotation cycle.

4 Recent Alumnus

Academics: Teachers are very helpful small community. We care about each other.

4 Recent Alumnus

Academics: Tutors all over the place! Couches everywhere too!

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: Cost is pricey but not as bad as large public college. The application needs to be done asap because you may not get a room otherwise.

4 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: The football team is one of the best. Human performance lab hives free checkups and tests and studies for research are always offered.

4 Recent Alumnus

Guys & Girls: Relationships are all over. Usually the people don't go with the status quo on who they're fating and they don't care what people think.

1 College Sophomore

Administration: It's so strict it's like you can't do anything

3 College Sophomore

Academics: It's complex but if you're willing to work

3 College Sophomore

Academics: Most of the studying is done in the library, dorms, or study rooms

2 College Sophomore

Local Area: There's not much you can do, it's really boring and so constrained

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Nothing ever specifically happened to me or my friends so my concerns are not really major

2 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: It's really old, needs a lot of renovating

2 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: It's really old, needs a lot of renovating and the students are taking too much money out of their pockets to pay for their things

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It's really expensive, but good for people who can handle the stress

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: The only good places are McDonald's, Sonic, and Starbucks

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Have not really been in a sorority

4 College Junior

Academics: Personally, I have had trouble signing up for certain classes every semester, but my advisor is great about helping me fix things

4 College Junior

Academics: The teachers in my major are awesome! !! They are great people and they certainly know what they are talking about. They are also very available to the students.

3 College Junior

Campus Quality: Add college students, we need some down time to relax and hang out with friends. Our game room is a shame to its name. There needs to be more effort to create a more fun filled experience when students are looking to kill some time between classes. I know we have the money to do it, let's get it done.

3 College Junior

Campus Quality: Our wellness center is decent, but as a school that had moved up in division and is constantly growing, we need a bigger facility. Plus, we don't have many campus events, and if wet do, they are not very well advertised.

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.
