Most Helpful Review for University of Northern Iowa

I am learning to be more independent while at the same time gaining a very valuable education in a safe setting. Not only am I learning good study habits, I am also learning about time management. The professors and staff here really care about their students and are willing to go the extra mile if you need help. With all the free tutoring available on campus it would be very hard to fail a class.

    The University of Northern Iowa is a college that has a state university feel, but less than state university cost. This college will make you feel right at home, because even though you could not know anyone when you're walking to class you may be placed in a class with some of your closest peers. This is an excellent university if you're looking for the state university status, more of a private college attendance, but not at a state university cost.

    Small class sizes is a plus, as well as the buildings being close together. It's freezing here no matter how well you bundle up. The small town lacks excitement, but it tries.
