University of Dubuque Reviews
My University of Dubuque experience has been great, Within just four months of being here I learned more about myself and others. I also learned that paying for college is not easy, this school is great on diversity and helping out their students. Attending university of Dubuque was a great choice for me because I was able to get out of Chicago. Till this day This school is still the right choice for me, but paying for it has been hard but I know now how to budget my money earned and put it towards paying for tutiton.
I have only been attending the University of Dubuque for about a year now, going into my sophomore semester. Thus far, I really enjoy the environment and community that I am around. The city is surrounded with good and very kind people, specifically at our university. The facilities are amazing and to top that there is actually some pretty good food. Although not the largest school, I feel at home and feel welcome. Overall, a great university to attend.
The University of Dubuque is a unique place. It has all the recreation and athletic facilities of a division 1 or 2 school but it’s small. The newer facilities are what first attracted me to campus. Once I got there and started meeting professors and other students it really felt like home. Because it’s a smaller college the professors get to know you on a personal level. Once you get into your program you have classes with the same students so you become very close. The city of Dubuque is very beautiful as well. There is so much to do and see. Since it’s on the Mississippi River you get very pretty views all throughout the year.
