    The University of the Incarnate Word is a wonderful accredited school with students from all different backgrounds and experiences that blend together to become a family. Not only can students walk around the gorgeous campus grounds but the academics and athletics are incredible. At this school, the courses are detailed and thorough. Not only do students really enjoy and learn from their studies, but we are a small community in itself where everyone on campus feels welcome and wants to be a Cardinal. GO CARDS!

    This past semester, I took 4 online courses. Three of them were synchronous, and one was asynchronous. The professors of the three synchronous courses used Zoom to give lectures and our school email for asking questions and turning in some assignments. Other assignments were turned in on Blackboard and messages were through there as well. The professor for the asynchronous course filmed herself giving lectures and sent them through Blackboard every week and we also turned in all assignments through there as well.
    When people ask me what incarnate word is like all I respond to them is that I am so glad I chose to go here. The professors are like friends, I’m where I’m at today because of how amazing the professors are. They push you and help you to be the best you can possibly be. The size of the classes and student size is incredibly important to me, you are never left out due to the size of the classes. Overall I’m so blessed to be at UIW!
