University of Northern Iowa Reviews
The University of Northern Iowa is a great school to go to! I completed my undergraduate degree in education there and absolutely loved it. I have felt more than prepared for my student teaching experiences, as well as my first teaching job. I am now onto my graduate degree and couldn't be happier. I thank UNI for giving me the education I needed to be successful. You get the small town feel on a university campus that is second to none!
I love how many different clubs and activities are offered! I also really like how as an Education major, I got into the classrooms right away my freshman year which really helped me get hand on experience. Cedar Falls is an amazing town and UNI really encourages their students to become involved in the community.
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!
