Iowa City, Iowa


Why did you choose to transfer UNI?

  I chose to transfer to UNI because I wanted the feel of a large school but the perks of a small school. I liked how UNI is in one central location and not spread out. I also liked the smaller class sizes.

What was the most memorable thing you remember about the transferring process?

UNI made my transfer process stress free! I used the online service “Transfer Plan-It” to figure out how my classes would transfer and which classes I still needed to obtain while at UNI.

What would you tell someone who is thinking about transferring to UNI?

I would tell them that it is a great school and I wish I would have gone here all four years.

What's the best thing about attending UNI?

Everyone is friendly and inviting.

What was the most difficult thing you had to get used to when you first came here? (and why)

Coming from a smaller school, the crowd of people in between classes scared me at first. It took me a while to get used to it and to realize they are all students just like me.

What kind of on-campus organizations/activities are you involved in? How does that involvement enrich your overall college experience?

For on-campus organizations I joined the psychology club. It is a great way to get involved and meet people in my major. I also joined a sorority. By joining a sorority, I had an instant support system and it was a great way to get involved on campus and in the Cedar Valley community.

How has your academic experience been? Tell us about any great classes or professors that inspired or challenged you. Are you happy with your career choice?

I have had many great classes and professors that have influenced me to be a psychology major. The professors really seem like they want to get to know me as an individual and are always willing to help when the need arises.

What do you like best about your major?

What I like best about being a psychology major is that I have enjoyed all of my classes and professors. The professors make the subject matter fun and interesting to learn about.

What's your favorite place on campus and why?

The Union is my favorite place on campus! I enjoy going there between classes to study, grab a quick snack or meet up with friends.

Has the Financial Aid office helped you with your college education? If so, in what ways?

The Financial Aid Office is always willing to help and assist you.

What do you plan to do with your UNI education?

With my UNI education I hope to obtain a job working with youth.
