What Students Are Saying

4.12 Average Rating
I love the atmosphere here at UNI. The students are amazing and the professors are always there to help. The class sizes are perfect for someone who is looking for a college that has a lot going on but isn't too big.
Christina from Cedar Falls, IA
Small enough to have a community feel, large enough to have plenty of opportunities. Numerous organizations and clubs to get involved in. Great academics.
