Why I love UNI:  I love UNI because it was a perfect fit for me. It was large enough to offer multiple opportunities to get involved, but was small enough that I did not get lost in the shuffle. In addition to a great education, I made many lifelong friends. While we don’t get to see each as much as we would like, whenever we do, we pick up right where we left off.

Why I love UNI:  It was big enough to get all kinds of great college experiences but small enough to find my classes!  I was able to get a wonderful education, meet lifelong friends and attend fun athletic events.  The UNI community is also one of a kind.  It is amazing how people you are only connected to because you went to the same college are willing to help/do things for others because they are a fellow Panther.  I loved my time at UNI and wouldn’t change it for the world!

Why I love UNI:  UNI provided the best college experience I could have imagined. It gave me a well-rounded education and many memories to last a lifetime. It had the close-knit community of a small school, but exciting opportunities of a larger school. Easy to say, I'm proud to be a Panther!
