Weather: The local weather is not a problem at all.It is either really sunny or slightly cold.The weather isn't all that contrasting.

5 College Junior

Campus Quality: They have the latest technology,and allow hands on.Only a few amount of students are allowed which enhances the learning environment.

5 College Junior

Administration: I believe they are very strict though they may be lenient on positive actions.

5 College Junior

Drug Safety: The drug scene at my school isn't visible at all since there's a profuse amount of security.

4 College Sophomore

Weather: San Antonio weather is usually hot, unless we're having weird periods of rain. Winters here are much appreciated.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: The animation program is tough, but it is necessary. The professors of our program know a lot about the workplace (some of them are still working in animation) so it is easy to trust them with their knowledge.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The San Antonio Police Department is here to make us feel safe and secure. They are willing to escort us to our dorms at night and there is little to no crime on campus.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: The faculty and staff are very helpful and there are many resources for the students to use.

Party Scene: There were no specific nightlife activities I knew of.

5 Recent Alumnus

Majors: I am completely happy with my Philosophy program at UIW. They make you choose a minor and because of it, I am using my skills developed in philosophy in law school.

5 Recent Alumnus

Majors: There was no formal admission process into the program. One simply signs up for the classes in said major and includes the major in the application to the school.

4 Recent Alumnus

Majors: I never participated in an internship but many were available.

4 Recent Alumnus

Majors: I can't say much about other programs but the Philosophy department at Incarnate Word is a gem. Everyone in the department is flexible with students and have a real passion for the subjects they teach. If you don't get it they have no problem trying to explain things to you.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: They are very helpful in helping me get what I need

4 College Junior

Party Scene: There is a lot to do if you're 21+ on the strip. It's near the downtown area so there are a lot of restaurants and social clubs in the area. Most of these establishments are walking distance from the university so it makes it easy for residence on campus.

Off-Campus Housing: Living off campus makes no difference , you make the grade you want with commitment and effort you will most definitely get an A but with low self esteem an laziness you won't do so good.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: All the facilities I have been to have been helpful and informative. The staff are always nice and help you stay on track.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Food: I do not dorm nor have a meal plan, but I get excited whenever I can eat on campus, because they have such a wide variety of breakfast, lunch, dinner, and even dessert.

4 College Junior

Diversity: Great diversity! Coming from a HS and undergrad that was mostly populated by Midwestern Caucasians, this was a refreshing change

1 College Junior

Administration: This is in relation to the off campus grad schools. UIW is strict with their policies. If you are found on social media to be writing anything inappropriate you will be sent to the conduct committee and have various punishments. Also speeding in/out of the parking lot is taken as a serious offense which will also send you to the conduct committee.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: there are so many different places too eat its amazing

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: theres always differnt activities for us too do everyday

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: The guys and girls at my school are all into the same friends and stuff. Everyone is friends with everyone

2 College Sophomore

Parking: The parking is okay if you live on campus. If you don't then more than likely you are forced to park at a parking garage at about 4 blocks from the main building. You can take the bus at least.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I don't really care about it. People in greek life seem cool but a lot feel like they literally own the school

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.
