Founded as a teacher training institution in a former orphanage, the University of Northern Iowa has grown to become one of Iowa’s public universities. UNI hosts colleges of Education, Business Administration, Social Sciences, and Humanities granting bachelor’s degrees in over 90 academic majors. For students looking to explore the performing arts, UNI hosts productions and touring companies at the Gallagher-Bluedorn Performing Arts Center as well as two smaller campus theaters. UNI also fields 15 men’s and women’s athletic teams known as the Panthers.
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.

Small enough to have a community feel, large enough to have plenty of opportunities. Numerous organizations and clubs to get involved in. Great academics.
