University of the Virgin Islands Reviews
UVI is a Historically Black College and University (HBCU). You can expect a top-notch education with outstanding instruction. All degree programs on the undergraduate and graduate levels are very rigorous, and prepare you for your career and life! Attending UVI has been a great academic decision for me, on reason being it was very cost effective. In state and out of state tuition and overall costs are much cheaper compared to other colleges and universities nationwide. There are various sport teams, clubs, groups, and other extracurricular activities that an individual can participate in that will enhance your academic career. The school's population is quite diverse as students are of various cultures, ethnicity, religious beliefs, and sexual orientation; this contributes to the type of experience that you will have. However, one major drawback is the scheduling of classes which do not provide much flexibility for individuals who are working full-time and may be single parents.
The University of the Virgin Islands is such a good school. The staff is amazing they welcome students with smiles and they are always ready to assist when they are needed .The advisors make sure students keep on task and they always encourage students to be the best . The teachers are the best. They don't only teach but they show you how to use what they teach in real life situations. Although the teachers may also be strict they try their best to make lectures, labs & etc fun. UVI is also filled with opportunities. UVI has work studies & they have so much programs that can help students be the best at what they want to be. My only complaint is that they don't have much activities for students.
I loved the curriculum, but there needs to be more student activities throughout the week. The campus is very beautiful and filled with lush greenery. The nearest beach is practically minutes away and it is a paradise to behold. The classes are small in size, so that one on one time with professors can be arranged. This is the first HBCU campus that is not in the US mainland. Other than that, this school takes much pride in itself and is filled with school spirit.
