Why I love UNI:  I think one of the reasons I loved my time at UNI is the size of the school - big enough to get the whole college experience and small enough to get to know people and feel a part of the community.

Why I love UNI:  I loved my time at UNI, and wouldn't change that experience for the world. Even when I was cramming for tough exams or feeling a little homesick that first semester, my college years were preparing me for things to come that I would never have been able to imagine at the time.
