  • I am a current student here

    The environment is very comfortable because the University is located in such a small town. There are many opportunities for different activities such as mall trips, movie trips, and different sporting events.

    Even though the campus is in a very small and quiet city, there are tons of clubs and organizations you can join. There are also tons of things to do every weekend, on and off campus.

    Although Fayette is a small town, I've grown used to it. It's nice though because everyone pretty much knows everyone. They just opened a new student center which is great. This school will only keep expanding and getting better.

  • I am researching this school and have not visited the campus

    Based off the research I found its a small campus, and its quite. If you do not want to be on a large campus with a ton of students then UIU would be a great choice. If you attend UIU you will have great experience and you will grow closer towards your professors and peers. The class room sizes are small from the research I found, so you can interact with your classmates and professors more then you would at a much larger college. The campus is diverse, if you are a minority student thats looking for a college from from home but one that's fairly diverse then UIU will be great, the percentage of minorities is more then the average minority student that;'s reseaching colleges would think.
