Upper Iowa University Reviews
I like the 8 week terms I have at the distance education center, as well as online. The classes are pretty pricey but that is expected for a private college. There are many classes offered. So far I have enjoyed the business courses and the teachers. The teachers really know what they are teaching and all of them work in the field they are teaching about which is really nice!
I love going to this school, but get frustrated at a few internal things occasionally. I have to first say that I'm an online student, which is the source of the most frustrations. There is a definite rift in the difference between traditional and online students. The easiest examples of this is that traditional students have 16 week semester long courses, pretty much the normal. Online students however have 8 week long condensed courses with no choice to take 16 week options. Both have their advantages but some consistency there would be nice. Another inconsistency is that traditional students have a spring break and online students do not receive one, they just transfer from term 3 to term 4 overnight with no break. Those minor things aside the classes are great and teachers understand the difficulties associated with online courses.
Upper Iowa University, although it is a small college, the professors are so nice and the small class sizes mean for better learning. The students are really nice and all care about you as a person no matter who you are. Even though the school is in the middle of nowhere the night life is great! I love the women's soccer team and I'm so excited to start in the fall.
