University of Northern Iowa Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (16)
I attended the University of Northern Iowa from 1982-1984 and then transferred to Buena Vista College to complete my degree. Both programs were exceptional! I was an Academic Assistant for my education professors, and this was a terrific experience for me. I was also the recipient of the Senior Award in Elementary Education for my class.
UNI made me the teacher I am today! It was great school that prepared me for my career! I had great teachers who cared about their students and gave us the attention needed to succeed. I often reflect back on my learning at UNI when making educational decisions or implementing new strategies.
The University of Northern Iowa is a great school if you want to become an educator. This school got me prepared and made it easy to go off and get an education job without worrying. The size and location of this school makes you feel right at home and everyone up there is there to help you get a great degree. I encourage everyone to take a look at this school!
My time at UNI was an amazing experience. I came into college wanting to teach, but left with a lasting passion for my career! I had amazing professors that taught me not only how to be a great teacher but some valuable life lessons as well. I had never thought about teaching middle school before but left with a degree in teaching middle school and have loved every minute of my middle school teaching job. I got hands on experience in the classroom that other school don't offer, which I believe better prepared me for my career. I got my first teaching job at an Southeast Polk Junior High before I had even completed my student teaching. My job at SEP was my first professional interview and I got the job a few days later! I know that my time at UNI and the lessons my professors taught me have helped me be a successful teacher today. I can't thank UNI enough for the valuable education I received!
Great Program with Great Professors. Would highly recommend anyone who is choosing this career path to go to UNI.
I grew personally, socially, academically and so much more during my time at UNI. I wouldn't trade it for anything.
I absolutely loved my time at UNI. I feel fortunate to have attended a university that began as a teachers college and has maintained its strong program and reputation.
UNI is a great college with a lot of options, but small enough to not make you feel like you are alone
UNI was a wonderful school! It was the perfect size for me and it allowed many opportunities. I was able to participate on intramural sports including rugby and the campus gym was wonderful. I also studied abroad my sophomore year in Ireland, that experience changed my life and I made lifelong friends in the process.
It was a good school because of it's size. It is not too big but still has plenty going on each week. I don't feel that I got the highest quality education with my major or some of my general education classes.
