What Students Are Saying

4.12 Average Rating
From what I heard from the professor I talked with and our tour guides I think their academic rigor is just the level I need to challenge me in the future.
Emma from Sioux Center, IA
Students are academically challenged, but the professors do a WONDERFUL job of helping them when they ask. Many classrooms also have a Peer Mentor or Teacher's Assistant to hold study sessions and work with you on assignments or ideas you do not understand.
Katlyn from Spencer, IA
UNI offers many degrees. Each one has its advantages and disadvantages.

I feel very prepared to go into a high school and teach. My fiend experience teachers have let me teach as they felt I had the skills and abilities to do so. My brother also graduated from UNI and he is in a PHD program at Notre Dame. He said he is as prepared as any other student and better than most.
Kristin from Cedar Rapids, IA
I will admit that I didn't study as much in high school so it is more difficult for me to sit down and study for a test or a quiz, but you will need it. College is, in my opinion, a lot harder than high school and the answers aren't just handed to you.
Christina from Cedar Falls, IA
Every professor knows what they're talking about. Be prepared to learn a lot.

Classes tend to be slow for a couple days at the beginning of a semester, but then they dive right into the coursework. There is more out of class time in college than in high school. Remember that for every hour you are in class, you will probably need to study for three hours out of class.
