17 Students rated Upper Iowa University
I genuinely like Upper Iowa, but if I had been allowed to choose to go to another school knowing what this school was like, I wouldn't have chosen to go here.
I came here to play womens soccer and the overall experience is a 6/10. I am very far from home so that is a very big toll.
The cafeteria food isnt bad.. its just the same things every week. They switch it up here and there.
The classes are pretty easy (freshman classes). The teachers are very helpful.
This school is perfect for anyone who likes the small schools and a close community. The school has a lot more to offer then some realize.
Upper Iowa is a great place to learn and grow! Even though the town and school are really small, the school does a great job bringing other things in and offering cheap or free extra things to go to. The people are all nice, and welcoming. The price, however, is a bit expensive.
To someone who has never seen Upper Iowa and was suddenly thrown on campus it would appear that students are always bored in small town Iowa. This is far from the truth, there is always a sporting event to attend or you can go down to the local pizza shop with friends. Students interact with each other daily and this causes the student body to become like a family. Visitors get this family feeling as soon as they step on campus. I did and that's why I chose to attended Upper Iowa University.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Upper Iowa University is 55%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
If I could go back and tell my "high school self," what the transition what like I would tell her not to scared, there are a lot of people on staff that are their to guide you through and on to the right track, you do not have to feel like you are alone just because you're not close to your family. I would say to get involved, there are a lot of great and fun programs to help you meet people and keep you from getting homesick as well as to help with homework if need be. I would also tell myself to go to Upper Iowa University.
I think my school is helpful, well rounded, and dedicated to the students who attend and the prospective students who want to attend.
Somone who likes to focus more on what they are doing. The two-class-a-term program allows for a lot of focus on the specific subject. Also, someone who likes the small town setting will thrive at this school. Classes are small, allowing the student to form bonds with classmates and professors. It is hard to walk around campus and not see someone that you know or recognize.
Anyone who has to have a McDonalds or Wal-Mart nearby should not attempt to come here. Anyone who loves the city should not attend this school. The nearest Wal-Mart is forty minutes away, and there are only a little over 900 students on campus. Our school makes up the majority of the population here in Fayette, Iowa. It may also be hard for someone to come here who isn't okay with different cultures and backgrounds as we have a large group of students from foreign countries such as Nepal.
I really appreciate the student to teachers ratio, it's very convenient.
I think the best things about our school are the Education Program and Art building. Education is the one field on this campus that I believe truly pushes students to go beyond and to try to be the best they can be. The teachers there have really helped to push me to be a better student and be a well organized individual. The Art building is one of the best I've seen compared to others I've visited. The building is new with all new equipment inside and a great senior studio. I wouldn't have last without them.
Well, first of all, I wish I knew the cost of a good education. The tuition for just one class is $975.00! That does not even include text books. In addition, I truly wish that I had made more of an effort to seek scholarships. I have taken out student loans in order to pay for classes, for the most part, because I am married with three children and I have to work. I cannot afford to pay for classes out of pocket. My wife is also working on her Masters degree, so we are streched very thin financially.

The worst thing about this school would be the distance from larger cities and from shopping centers. We have a large variety of things offered either through the school or in town, but some objects you are only able to find in larger areas. In most cases to get to these areas, it is at least a half an hour drive, more in other cases.
All of my classmates are very helpful. Because of the small class size, we get to know each other very well. Also, the university is under 1,000 people, so you get to know those people that you haven't had classes with either. Everyone is friendly and helpful, and Upper Iowa University has the most diverse campus in Iowa.
My school is best known to me for its friendly and helpful attitude, both with the staff and students. I have always found it to be a really cooperative and supportive learning enviroment. The staff make themselves available to the students for extra help and even the students I go to classes with are exetremely helpful with any quesitons I may have.
Upper Iowa University is the best place to get a degree. Ever since the first day I set foot on campus I knew it was the right fit for me this small university is student centered with great staff who cares for each their students.
It is far away from any big area all activities are small
The academics at Upper Iowa University I believe are amazing. I get the help that I need when I need it not only by my professors, but also by other classmates. Our classes are very student interactive that way we are not only getting taught or opinions by professors, but are also learning from our peers. Everyone contributes to a discussion in their own way, and it really helps.
I don't really know any student activities, because I am not in the main campus.
I have yet to hear any stereotype of anyone at UIU. We are all different in our own way. And we are also located in the middle of nowhere in Iowa and many people have yet to even here of Upper Iowa University.
