WHAT I LIKED

There are many options for various students depending on their needs. There are many degrees you can get online, more than most schools I know. If you go in person, the classroom can range from very large to medium size. The college is surrounded by many businesses as well. So, if you are done with school a person can just walk a few minutes to the nearest restaurant.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Most of the in-person classes I think are very very large. Normally when I think of an in-person class here, I think a hundred students in one room.

WHAT I LIKED

UNI is the perfect sized campus for me. There are always new faces, but my classes are with the same cohort which makes developing relationships very easy. The buildings are beautiful, but a few are slightly outdated. There are plans to renovate and update a new building every few years. Technology is freely accessible all over campus.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Since the pandemic and lack of on-campus student workers, there aren't as many food options open on campus as there used to be.

4.0

WHAT I LIKED

The amount of fun and eye-opening opportunities and activities to do, academic and health support, and general helpfulness of people. The school really cares about the quality of its student-life

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

$5 sushi day is only for one day of the week.
