Success in life is all a reflection of how a person enjoys his college life.

My experience here is great. Every student gets full rights and a lot of choices that he or she can make for themselves. Life is not hard but rather fun if you make take some effort in making it more exciting. Friends are always around you to make you feel like home.

UNI-a hidden gem in the Midwest

UNI is truly a hidden gem in the Midwest. For a school of 12,000 students, the student to faculty ratio of 19:1 is impressive. The faculty and instructors are committed to students' success.

UNI is truly a hidden gem in the Midwest. For a school of 12,000 students, the student to faculty ratio of 19:1 is impressive. The faculty and instructors are committed to students' success. My professors all know me by my first name. Class sizes are small, and many are discussion-based. Almost all of the classes are taught by professors instead of graduate students, which is normally the case in large institutions. Most importantly, UNI is the place where anyone can feel at home. The resident halls are staffed by friendly and helpful resident assistants. International students have plenty of opportunities to interact with one another and American students. UNI is committed to promoting diversity on campus. There are wonderful events on campus for international students to promote their cultures and cuisine. I have made so many friends during my time here. Transitioning to college can be difficult, but at UNI, you will truly be at home. show less
