Our President, Dr.Agnese, truly cares about our education, and the whole staff makes each student feel like a student, other than a number. Friendly people would love it here because everyone is so courteous to one another. There are plenty of leadership activities and several organizations, including soroities and fraternities. This school is for students who want to attend a well rounded semi-big university and still receive special attention from our teachers.
An individual interested in attending the University of the Incarnate Word should have an almost unique set of characteristics. The person should have Michaelangelo's eye for art and Bach's (not Van Gough's) ear for music. His or her heroes should be Donald Trump and Bill Gates if into business or M. Night Shyamalan and Peter Jackson if into film. A penchant for psychological analysis is helpful, but optional, as is a fanatical love of sports. Finally, late-night study sessions with Mexican food and some sort of saintly devotion of faith is typical.
Someone who excels in a smaller classroom and prefers being apart of a smaller community should attend UIW. There are many events held on campus which make it easy to meet many different people and you get exposed to the different organizations on campus. There are over 70 organizations on campus, so anyone who enjoys being involved with their school has many options to choose from. More importanly, someone who is a strong believer in their faith should attend UIW because it is a Catholic based univeristy, and are also welcoming to all faiths.
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.

He/she should be prepared to feel less like a number and more like a student in the classroom, compared to a large university.
The kind of student who will attend this school will be a serious student who knows exactly in he direction they are heading towards.

Getting the job done and being the best person one can be with a can-do attitude. The student must appreciate Life, Art, and Beauty in the world as well as in one another.
A person that can afford the tuition. Plain and simple money talks loud and clear at Incarnate Word. Get ready to spend 100,000 on your four year education. On a lighter note, a person who aspires for a better life and a successful future. Someone that loves the feel of a small community. The type of person that enjoys study sessions and getting to know their peers, because after all you will most likely see everyone that attends UIW seeing as how small an institution we are.

Also, if you want to attend a school with an array of students from the "upper class".
Someone that is hardworking, that has worked hard to get to where they are now. And they want to be surrounded with only things that support them in whatever comes in their way. Someone who wants to see the good in things, and if something goes wrong, they won't be bashed for it, but pushed to do the right thing or make the right decision to make it all OK again.
