University of the Incarnate Word Reviews
I absolutely love attending this university! Professors are fair and responsive to a student's needs, usually responding to a question or concern at all hours of the day. This university also has quality instruction with real challenging material. This is not a run of the mill university where you pay for your degree, you will actually learn something and will be needed to apply yourself in your studies. I am so glad I transferred from my "pay for degree" school to this University.
I am going on my 3rd year at UIW and this experience has been great. The campus is beautiful. I usually go on runs throughout the campus towards the little trials in the back which is wonderful. I realize the cost unfortunately is a fortune but you’re getting what you paid for I believe. There is some specific areas where they can nickle and dime you but also nothing is free. There is access to a gym which can be crowded but it has everything you need. There is a diverse amount of students which can help you connect and see different experiences and point of views. One thing I would change is the parking space it’s a hassile if you don’t have an early class or really late class but you just show up 30-45 mins early before class and you should be fine. The buildings are really old so their can be problems in the dorms. Other than that I’ve had such a great experience and can’t wait until graduation!
So far, my first year at the University of Incarnate Word has been wonderful. It has met my expectations and beyond. One of my favorite things about the university is the class sizes. I love how small the classes are. They are usually made up of 15-20 students! it makes it so easy to focus and learn. You really get that one on one time with your teachers. The teachers are so kind and genuinely care about you as a student and will help you do everything in their power to help you be successful. I would definitely recommend this university to my high school friends.
