University of Northern Iowa Top Questions

Describe the students at your school.

Jocelyn

My classmates are not very diverse racially, but for the most part they are all outgoing, polite, hard-working and kind. The students here at UNI seem to be your typical college students, staying up well into the night to study and do homework, but also enjoying hanging out with peers. Overall, I would say my classmates here are welcoming and friendly. I do not think I've met one judgmental or rude person here.

Lucas

The students here on campus are, for the most part, pretty accepting. Since we are a smaller university in northeast Iowa, UNI students are predominantly white, middle class, Christians. However, there are students of several races, ethnic backgrounds, and nationalities. There are safe zone signs posted in several places around campus including many professors' office doors indicating they are safe for the LGBT community. There are some cliques just from people getting together from different activities and stuff, but for the most part everyone is pretty intermingled. For example, my freshman year, my closest group of friends on my floor would have been from completely different high school cliques ranging from the jock to the nerd.

Megan

My classmates are all very down to earth and eager to learn and meet new people.

Most of my classmates are very motivated individuals. The quality of work that they put into everything is so much greater than anything I saw in high school. Its a really self-motivating environment just saying how well everyone around you performs.
