Overall the school is good because it isBrightUndecided
Overall the school is good because it is small and the education is very excellent. More than anything though I love how welcome I feel at the school. I have been able to become really good friends with people I couldn't imagine being friends with in high school. The student body to me atleast feels very inclusive the kid who was a theatre nerd in high school could be best friends with the crafty jock ect..

Question
IWU is an amazing,Quite BrightNursing
IWU is an amazing, small liberal arts school. I feel so comfortable here and I know that a degree from here will set me apart from other job applicants. The school is challenging and intellectual with a surprisingly good social scene.

Question
This school is horrible with communcation and tryingAverageNursing
This school is horrible with communcation and trying to get the classes they tell you you need. They tell you you have to take a certain class, then make it impossible for you to get into that, then proced to say it's the students fault. Also, if need something good luck trying to find someone who will help you. You will be passed from person to person until someone finally says sorry nothing we can do. Lastly the best teacher here are the ones that simply do there jobs. I have had several professors that simply do not care about students. They go teach there two classes then get out of there. They are not willing to work with kids and basically are only there because they have to to get there paycheck. I know plenty of kids who are having these problems. They school seems awesome on the surface, but after several experiences I've had here I would not recomend this school to anyone who is not willing to deal with a bunch of BS for four years. (Thats asumming you get the classes you need and do not have to take a 5th year)
