There is a wide range of personality and looks at UIW. The great thing about this diversity is that everyone knows everyone and gets along. There are countless social opportunities to take part in and meet new people. The athletics are a big social part, but even to non-athletes participate and mingle with everyone. For the most part, everyone dresses at their comfort level and no one is ever judged for wearing anything.
The academics offered at UIW are fantastic! They prepare you for the real life field and provide you with the knowledge needed for your future. Registration is very easy. Your advisor walks you through the process step by step and maps out the best route for you to take in order to graduate with your degree. The work load is fairly manageable. As long as you manage your time well and keep up with studies and class work, the work isn't so bad. Professors are willing to work with you, provide you with great resources and will meet you at your convenience if you just talk to them and set something up.
Ironically, from what I've noticed at Incarnate Word, is that the biggest drug scene is within the athletes. Alcohol is a major factor is all the social gatherings, but drug use is at a bare minimum. Drugs are definitely offered to students at these social gatherings, but it is often turned down. Peer pressure is always going to be there, but it is nothing extreme or to the point of making someone uncomfortable. For the most part, if you say "No," it will be respected. Policy enforcement is effective as strong as it could be. Students/athletes are always going to drink and some will do drugs, its inevitable. However, the random drug testing and punishment when caught with these substances does seem effective and prevent some from putting themselves in such a position.
All the professors in this department have a ph degree and are willing to work with you and your crazy college schedule. They provide many effective hands on projects and assignments that prepare you for your future in this specific field. There are limitless resources and staff to help you through whatever it is you need and they do it with a smile. As graduation comes near, the professors and staff are willing to provide outstanding recommendations as well as help you find an internship and/or job.
