The University of the Incarnate Word is a great university that values its students. The school prepares you for greatness and makes sure its students have everything they need to succeed in life and in their future endeavors. Highly recommended university.
I absolutely love being a student at Incarnate Word. It is family orientated and I met my closest friends at this university. There is a lot of opportunities to grow emotionally and socially! The few things I love about it here is that there is free therapy and I can talk to my professors.
I love it ! It is a beautiful campus. There are so many shops and food places available to the students. You should see the campus during Christmas time it is the most beautiful thing ever! The class sizes are pretty big but you still get that small community feel and that is something I was looking for when applying to college.
It’s a beautiful campus with lots of friendly people! The class sizes are kept pretty small so not only does your professor learn and remember your name and face, they greet and chat with you outide of class if they see you around campus. You also get to know everyone in your major because you take all your classes with them, even the intro classes! General core classes have a wider mix of majors but you still see them around campus and its nice to always see familiar faces. Since UIW is located at the heart of San Antonio, Texas, many of the students are of hispanic heritage. However, a variety of international students also attend the SATX campus, allowing students a unique cultural richness and experience. UIW is a great school that has started to feel like a second home.

If I could go back in time?in all honesty?I would tell myself to first, enjoy and partake in more or most of the senior-bonding activities. I would tell myself to join the exuberant water balloon fight of ?09(?no one got in trouble) and the senior circle during the last football game (?no, your big brother is not going to get mad for making him wait to pick you up). Second, I would tell myself, that even if you choose to stay at home and live with your parents during college, it won?t set you back from having the best, most awesome freshmen year (?or at least first semester). Third, I would tell myself to look back at freshmen year of high school and just trust that your first year of college is so much better (?tons more enthralling, nerve-wracking, and even inspirational). Lastly forth, I would tell myself to get ready, because your real grown-up life hasn?t begun?so as a senior, live-up (to the fullest) your last year.
My school is a wonderful place to be at any time of the day and feels like home.
That it was so liberal
liberals, gay people, non christians, slackers, people who don't like school spirit, people who dont like unresonable rules, people who expect what professors verbal instructions to hold true. poor people. people who dont want to be poor.
My classmates are intelligent, exciting, and dedicated young adults.
The worst thing would be the facilities. The cost to attend this school is very high, and none of the money you fork out shows on campus. The classrooms are mostly old and outdated, some employees are unprofessional, and the shuttle service is very slow and not reliable. I would expect to attend classes in a nicer environment with the high tuition costs.
The professor of UIW of very helpful. It is very rare when you come across a professor that is not well organized and does not know the subject well.
The most frustrating thing about the University of the Incarnate Word is the fellow students learning habits. Many of the students are not achieving academic greatness and this sets others back. The teachers, instead of failing the student tend to push the high achieving students back. The high level of push back and the lack of knowledge that can be obtained is by far the most annoying part of the campus atmosphere. The University of the Incarnate Word could accelerate but, it is being pushed back by the students and the teachers sympathy for the students.
If you are looking for a party type of school, then the University of the Incarnate Word is not for you. At Incarnate Word, students seem to have a higher standard compared to other colleges. There are expectations of integrity, honesty, loyalty, and just living right because it is the right thing to do. I believe that these standards raise the students at my college to a higher bar, and better prepare them for their life after college. So if a student wants to be respected and develop their character, then this is the school for them.
It's small community environment that has a well rounded student body.
For twenty-four years it?s been a tradition for my school to hang millions of lights throughout its campus for the holiday season. It?s called, ?Light the Way,? and it?s a beautiful sight to see when it occurs. Not only does it provide a time for friends and family to congregate, but it also supports a charitable cause. Everyone who attends is given the opportunity to donate toys for needy children of San Antonio. To me my school is best known for trying to give everyone happiness, be it through a superior education or even toys.
i don't usually brag about it but I would say it's a good campus community
Some classes are more difficult than others, but that's just the nature of things and one's particular aptitude.
I'm not involved with any and don't know of any.
I'm not aware of any stereotypes, but that could be because of my small exposure.
