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.

    Two years ago, I never thought I would end up choosing to go to University of Northern Iowa for my undergraduate studies, but I can say I have been pleasantly surprised and continually impressed with the emphasis of inclusivity on campus and easy access to activities, clubs, tutoring, health services, learning and leadership opportunities, and so much more. The professors I have had at UNI have also made it clear that I am valued as a student and as a person, with engaging and challenging material and the eager willingness to answer my questions and even spend one-on-one time with me and the coursework. With only two semesters under my belt, I have already grown so much as a student and world citizen and I am certain that the remainder of my time as a Panther will only bring me more positive experiences.

    After going on a campus visit, the University of Northern Iowa is definitely at the top of my list. The tour guides were great and really showed off their incredible campus and helped me to picture myself being apart of the community there. A meeting I had with a professor there also showed that the University of Northern Iowa has a great background in the major I want to go into.

    The nicest thing about the campus is that everything is within walking distance. The classrooms in the newly renovated Education building all look fantastic. There are plenty of practice rooms for those interested in music!

    I absolutely love the UNI campus! It is so easy to get across, and all of the buildings for specific majors are grouped together. I am definitely going to apply there.

    I've been on campus visits several times and since my first visit, I've fallen in love with the school. I love all the opportunities this school can give me, but it also has a smaller school feel.

    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.
