I love the university! Yes it is expensive, but it is worth every penny. The professors are understanding, well organzined, and are passionate about their jobs. The open-door policy at the university really helped me through my freshman year, when ever I had a question my professor was there to answer. The class sizes are small so the professor aren't overwhelmed by hundreds of questions from hundreds of students. Also, coming from small high school classes, the transitions from high school classes to college classes isn't a huge shock. The university offers a lot of scholarships, grants, loans, etc. to help students pay tuition. As of 2017 the tuition was about $46,000 but with all my scholarships (not from sports or from outside scholarships) my total tuition went down to $21,000. This is a great university and campus life is amazing as well. Everyday there's an event going on so you'll never get bored. I am proud to be a cardinal and you will be too.
Review University of the Incarnate Word
Overall, our university is a nice place to study and get your education. I truly believe in the values of the Sister's of Charity--Education, Service, Truth, Innovation, and Faith. Our University is growing and changing rapidly but it still preserving has a small campus feel environment. The people in the community are helpful, caring and engaged in the development of the student outside of the classroom. I love that the university is really close proximity to the airport, downtown and easily accessible to fun venues. I love the university and hope you do well if you choose to attend a Catholic Institution. You will not regret your experience at UIW! Home of the Cardinals!
The University of the Incarnate Word is a small, close-knit community. To have fun, get involved in campus life. Academically, most of the professors are wonderful! There are plenty of student resource. The campus is so diverse and accepting. I love it! The food is improving, but there is a lot to do outside and around campus as well, so enjoy the experience by exploring.
