I went into the University of Dubuque as a transfer student and I loved the atmosphere of the school and how welcoming and friendly everybody was. It really made my first year at Dubuque great! I really don't have anything negative to say about the school because the professors were great, athletics, and the campus itself was amazing.

My experiences with the school have been a good one because it is a small school and is easy to meet people. However, sometimes you would get a teacher that is bad at teaching a specific subject or bad overall. Although this happens sometimes, the other teachers within the school make up for the bad ones and actually makes the class more enjoyable.
Professors and staff are very kind and helpful. They’re all very straight to the point and do not waste your time. The food is awesome and the campus is beautiful!
