5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I've had one bad teacher that was part time and didn't really care about his students, but I've had more teacher that care about us passing and knowing what we're doing. teachers offer a lot of their time for us to visit in office hours. the courses we have are an okay variety because most of them are pretty general classes you can go to any college for, there's no uniquely good classes for you unless you wanna be a nurse.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: we did have an incident of a gunman on campus, and night time, so they had lockdowns and locked all of the dorms and police came pretty fast to secure everyone's safety.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: my school is very expensive, but it's worth it because the classes are small making it easier to learn and interact with the teacher.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: What made me return to UIW is the professors. These professors take care of you so well they do everything they can to help you understand the course and pass. The classes are perfect and the style each professor teaches helps a lot.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I don't hear much about students and internships programs but Im sure that your advisor works with you if you're interested.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: You don't hear about people being assaulted but you never hear any support for people that have been either.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I do not live on campus but what I've heard is that its pretty cool

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Since its a small campus Greek Life isn't as active as the others school but they do many things on campus

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: The campus isn't really involve in any of the sports or events.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Made the transition from high school to college easy.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: My campus had multiple safety measure you could use if and when you felt your personal safety was at risk. The big thing for me was how lighting on campus at night. The university made sure the campus was open and lighting was supportive.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: This schools network for career prospects and alumni networks is phenomenal. They is such a huge network of Aggies, post graduation, willing to help you succeed out in the real world.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: The campus housing is always in the process of developing and improving. There are plenty of options on the campus for students to select from, based on personality, preference to living and social scene.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: I think there is always room for improvement in this area. As a whole, the Greek life community participates and immerses itself in philanthropy and community outreach. There is one service project called Big Event, that focuses on community outreach in the Bryan and College Station area. I think the chapters need to be more unified as a whole and come together as one big program, rather than subchapters.

4 College Junior

Athletics: The athletic program at Texas A&M University contributes to part of the name the university holds for itself. It recruits star athletes who compete in women's soccer, baseball, swimming, and football. The bleachers are always filled with both student and alumni supporters. There is an significant amount of tradition and school spirit at each game, from the Aggie War Hymns to the Fighting Texas Aggie Band half time performances.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Texas A&M University is full of tradition and spirit. The students are engaging, well connected, inclusive and excel both inside and outside the classroom. This campus and its staff was design to challenge students, but also prepare them to exceed in daily life challenges.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The University of the Incarnate Word is an amazing school. The professors are amazing and are so helpful. The class sizes are not huge so you are able to get one on one help if needed. Most everyone there wants to be there and learn. Uiw also puts on a lot of event that are free for the students which are always fun.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I really like how the population of the students and professors are very diverse. There were many events that engaged the student body. My favorite experience during college was joining the volleyball intramural. It really helped me to meet new people and to bond with other people, especially with an activity that I enjoy doing.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I absolutely love UIW it's one of the best schools in San Antonio and has a lot to offer.

Campus Housing: Campus housing is a great way to go to a university when you live out of the city. I myself live in a dorm on the university and love the dorms I lived in. There are definitely some dorms that are better than others between upgrades, room styles, location of the dorms, and even different pricing of the dorms. There are different atmospheres for each dorm since some dorms are upperclassmen only or freshman only. The pricing can range from single, double, or triple rooms. To private suites and or suited bathrooms. It seems the more private and the more space you want the dorms become more expensive and the price goes up every year. Most dorms are up on the hill and a little further from classes but there is a shuttle or paths to walk to class. The housing process can be stressful because of the way it is set up and how it is basically first come first serve and you have to be fast at choosing your room. The bad thing is the school is very limited on rooms because the school is getting more attention then it used to and they are having to find more spaces for students.

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.
