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 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.
