University of Northern Iowa Reviews
Review University of Northern Iowa
As soon as I stepped on campus, it felt like my new home. The size is perfect and it is such a beautiful place. The class size is just about right and the professors are some of the best ones around. They take the time to help you and they are incredibly easy to talk to. The sporting events are beyond amazing! If you choose UNI, I guarantee you that you'll find your second home, your significant other and a whole bunch of friends along the way! Highly recommend attending UNI!
UNI is a middle of the road choice when it comes to choosing a college. It has the opportunities that would come with a large university while maintaining the intimacy of a small school atmosphere. Since UNI is an R2 school, the faculty that come here know that their primary responsibility is to teach. As a music major, I am thankful that I have the opportunity to develop meaningful relationships with my professors. I get to learn from them and watch them perform regularly. The faculty in the school of music also get along very well, so the atmosphere is very energizing since everyone is pursuing knowledge. Many departments will collaborate and put together fantastic performances. There are also plenty of opportunities for student leadership. I have been able to put together my own chamber ensembles and have had my music read by Jazz Band One. My experience has been incredible and this is just the beginning of UNI's rise to the top!
UNI is an amazing school! The campus is fairly small, it takes about 10min to walk from one end to the other. Living on campus is great, there everything you possibly need right here. Plus, you get to meet a lot of great people the live in the same building as you. Professors are all nice and easy to get along with. Only thing that suck is walking to class in the winter, but we're in Iowa so what can you expect? I highly recommend UNI to anyone, its a very upbeat and fun school!
