"Love this school. It's a private college with small campus and lower student to teacher ratio, which means you can get more one-on-one help than if you went to a huge public school. I really like the opportunities this school presents. Career fairs, job fairs, seminars, tons of clubs, independent studies, internship opportunities. Even just talking to your professors. There are many chances to learn all about your field and even get your foot through the door by taking up all the opportunities advertised all throughout campus. With the amount of connections you can get from the college and people there, there's no excuse to not be able to network and make the most of your time there. As for the biology major itself, it's not the best in the state or nation, but its far from being the worst. I found it fairly rigorous and learned a lot. Get the education your program requires, but definitely take up those internships and networking chances as well. Biology has a lot of those. Lastly, the campus is very cozy. It's surrounded by nature. During the Christmas holidays, things really kick off, with festivals and colorful lights put up everywhere on campus. Overall, I loved my time here. It was great academically and socially. I do not regret a single thing after having graduated from here."

"UIWs School of Professional Studies (SPS) is a great experience. It can be challenging since you are more than likely full-time employed as well as studying full time. It is accelerated in nature with 8 week course. With all that said it is TOTALLY beneficial when you walk away with a private school degree that stands out from the rest.The professors are all highly knowledgeable in their respective field and have a passion to make sure you understand what is going on as well as teaching you what real world application will be. If you are looking for a challenge and a way to make yourself better - UIW is the way to go!"

"The Feik School of Pharmacy at the University of the Incarnate Word offers a great pharmacy program. Despite the high tuition, FSOP is committed to teach and prepare their student pharmacists as leaders in the community of health care educators and practitioners, who are advocates dedicated to the delivery of superior, patient-centered, team care and enhancement of the quality of life for all citizens."

"University of the Incarnate Word offers a quality education with small class sizes and a faculty and staff that genuinely are invested in their students' progress and interests. Their work with active duty military , veterans, and dependents is truly some of the best I have seen in higher education."

"College was a wonderful experience overall. Specifically for me, I lover learning and it was the perfect way for me to experience something new while progressing my knowledge. However, it's expensive and can be a burden if one isn't able to sacrifice for their experiences."

"This was my second master's degree, and from the beginning I found the courses to be more than adequate in preparing me for my future role in the accounting field. Having previously worked as a controller for a multi-million dollar company, I was pleased with the level of instruction, and expertise that I was able to achieve."

"This school is definitely very involved with the community. They are growing so rapidly ! Almost every degree here is highly recognized. From business, to even fashion design. With all of the clubs and organizations that they have you'll be able to fit in somewhere. Even at orientation they encourage new students to attend certain events so they can meet other students. The classes are the perfect size and you really get that one on one with professors. This is also very beneficial when you are looking for letters of recommendation and the professor knows who you are. If I could relive my 4 years again I so would. I highly recommend this school."

"Since I stepped foot on campus I have been treated with the upmost respect by all faculty, staff and students. My voice has been heard when I have requests. I am able to speak my mind and let my opinion be known in class discussions. I am accepted and respected as an adult, as a human and as an equal to my peers and professors. I have had the privilege of learning from our very own Professors who was the recipient of the Moody Award, Dr. Perry. He teaches Research and Writing techniques and was able to help not only I but everyone in my class dust off the cobwebs on our work and improve our writing tremendously. I have learned very valuable information from books and from others. I have been blessed with the knowledge and attitude of the UIW campus when I didn't know what to do, and felt lost. I turned to education and have found my place."

"UIW ADCAP program is perfect for people who work full time and have a family. The classes are small and there are many campus sites you can attend. This was a perfect choice for me, I would recommend ADCAP program for people trying to go back to school."

"The campus is small, which makes hands-on and direct learning much easier. Because a max of 100 students are accepted in the program each year, when you are accepted, you are surrounded by students just as driven as you are. It's a great opportunity to truly get the most out of your school."

"In my graduate program there are not many people in my classes, so we are able to discuss ideas, get to know one another, learn from each other, and get a good one-on-one experience with our professors. It is a beautiful campus, and it is small so there is not too much walking like in big campuses. This is a very expensive program, however. It is a private school, so it comes with a cost."

"A tight-knit community within the program, but sometimes the school forgets it's an academic institution. For example, on Alamo Heights night all parking was closed off for the event with no regards towards students."

"The University of the Incarnate Word: School of Physical Therapy program leaves several more pro's than con's. Apart from the high student to faculty ratio here in San Antonio, the curriculum of Problem Based Learning (PBL) really does make the student learn the body and it's function before progressing to the next level. The con's definitely lie in the tuition. It is a private school so that is somewhat expected!"
