The University of Northern Iowa was named the second-best regional public university in the region — a ranking it’s consistently held for roughly 20 years — in the recently released 2022-2023 Best Colleges report by U.S. News & World Report.
The University of Northern Iowa welcomed an incoming class of 2,200 freshmen and transfer students this fall. This new student cohort includes 764 transfer students, an increase of 23 percent over last year.
The University of Northern Iowa is once again bustling with life as students return to campus, settle into dorms, houses and apartments and start their first full week of classes. For new students — whether they be freshmen or transferring juniors — so many new people, places and experiences can be a bit overwhelming, but those who have been at UNI for a few years have some great advice to offer.
