Launching point for successful careers
An amazing launching point for my professional career. The small classroom size, dedicated professors, and well-rounded curriculum allowed me to explore my individual interests while always feeling supported by knowledgeable and compassionate faculty. The program gave me a pathway to getting into the physical therapy program of my choice.

Finding a home that fits
It was a school visit that made me realize that UNI has a lot of opportunities for a student like me to able to reach their dream goal. The size of the classrooms are very reasonable allowing the one-on-one connection with any of your professors. The buildings are not too far apart from each other. I am going to be the first generation of my family to graduate from a university and I truly wouldn’t want to do it anywhere else but at UNI.
