3 College Senior

Athletics: The athletics here do take a lot of priority on campus. Recently there has been and increase of fan support and school spirit because the athletic teams are doing better than previous years. Team performance is slowly improving and recently three of our football team members have been signed by major NFL teams. The campus is currently very proud.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Overall, my school is small but I prefer it that way because I gain a lot of one on one attention from my professors. I have grown on this campus the past four years of my undergrad have been amazing. They are very welcoming and they do whatever they can to help you succeed. The only reason someone may not want to attend here would be due to the price. It is very expensive. Also, my campus offers a lot of opportunities to get involved. This is how you meet people who end up becoming like family to you. If I could do it all over again I would most definitely come back to the University of the Incarnate Word.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There was a shooter on campus in the fall semester of 2015 and the school did a very poor job of acting upon it.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Classes are small and the people are nice, but the buildings are outdated.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I feel this school can hold up a good deal of other school.

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Very bad living for freshman boys and the housing process is twisted.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I didn't know we had a Greek life till last month.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I am involved in the athletics at UIW and the students and teacher tend not to care about the sports.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: UIW is small which I like, but there is not much todo, no student live and bad facilities.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: The campus is friendly and small. Teachers are approachable and kind.

3 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: Athletics add to the typical college experience.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The class sizes are small which I like but in some cases too small which makes me a target to call upon every single class. Some of the rooms are high-tech and awesome with comfortable furniture, but others are super old and I feel like I'm in elementary school again.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I haven't graduated yet so I really don't know but I would image it's easy to find a job after least in my degree field, whereas I've heard from alumni that their degree didn't really do much for them. I believe it's all in the eye of the beholder and the student is still responsible for seeking a great career; the degree alone is not going to land a student a job - they still need to put in some effort.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I am very happy with my choice of coming to this University, most professors are easy to get a hold of, and classes are moderate when it comes to difficulty.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Career services and job opportunities are always having events, and most majors require an internship or practicum.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Those that I know are in sorority's love the greek life.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: This University is not known for it's athletic department, it is mostly known for it's academics. Saying that this university does try very hard to incorporate sports into campus life.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: This University is very inviting. There are always many different events going on here, and we have many international students and places to study abroad. Student employment and work study pay pretty well here. I don't get home sick, because this school feels like my second home.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I don't know too much about Greek life because I have not been interested in it, but the members are very friendly and open to new people. Being a non-Greek, I don't feel negative or anything of that sort towards the Greeks, I see them as regular students here on campus.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The athletics at UIW are great. Non athletes are completely welcome to use the athletic facilities all the time. The athletes have outstanding team performance and a huge fan support. The football and basketball teams have the full support of the band, who attend all home games and play music in the stands for everyone to enjoy. The band also cheers on the teams and supports them, and in return a lot of the athletes support the band by attending their concerts.

5 College Freshman

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I always feel safe here, I never really worried.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

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.
