Why I love UNI: UNI is the perfect size. You have the opportunity to get to know many different classmates to get the feeling that it is a small school, while at the same time allowing yourself some anonymity that would make it feel too small.

Why I love UNI: When I first toured the beautiful UNI campus, I knew it was the right place for me. UNI is a good sized school with a small school feel to it. And who doesn't love Purple and Gold!

UNI is a wonderful place to learn and grow. It's large enough to provide a multitude of opportunities, yet small enough to allow you to make life long connections. It's a world-class organization, located in the heartland.

I grew up in Cedar Falls and going to Panther games. I always knew I wanted to go to UNI.

At an early age, I knew I wanted to become a teacher.  When the thought of finding an in state school to pursue my BA in education, there was nothing else that compared to UNI. Small class sizes with leading research being taught to future teachers, and building rapport with my professors was priceless.  Being a Panther is the only way to be!!
