Question
Spanish dept is great, UNI as a wholeAverageEducation
Spanish dept is great, UNI as a whole is horrible. They made so many cutbacks (sports, classes, and professors) it seems they are promoting ''money first, students second'., and reaping all the benefits. The town, Cedar Falls, treats the students and campus as secondary shit even though the students support and give life to this low life area. Forget UNI and attend ISU or U of I, save the pain of dealing with their B.S.

Question
DO NOT GO TO UNI.English
DO NOT GO TO UNI. My experience there was actually ok, I appreciate what I learned, however, UNI is having HUGE budget problems and has cut academics 3 years in a row. This week they just cut 70 academic programs. Many students I know are asking what to do. why would you go to a school that has no choice in your "electives"? it's not very elective if you only have one choice to fill the requirement. This school also has a foreign language requirement. which is great if you want to learn spanish. They just cut the other foreign language programs. They have also cut many education minors and eliminated their lab school. It may have once been one of the best teacher education schools, but you wouldnt know it from how they are treating students now. Overall, if you want to go to a school that might cut the very program you went there for before you graduate, UNI is a great choice. Otherwise, pick one of the other schools. There are many other schools that would care more about keeping professors and classes than spending $65,000 to install solar powered trash cans.
