Welcome Freshmen

College is an exciting time! It will definitely change your life. It's when you discover where you belong. More importantly, the right college will prepare you for life...and your career. 

UNI is the right college and the right fit for new freshmen because of our strong academic tradition, student-friendly size, hands-on academic and research opportunities, not to mention one-on-one attention from faculty and staff. UNI’s welcoming, close-knit campus community means you'll also make friends and find dozens of ways to get involved from your very first day.

When it comes to academics, one of the first people you’ll meet is your adviser who will help you choose classes and meet with you on a regular basis throughout your UNI career. Your adviser will help you keep on track so you can graduate in a timely manner and start your career - which, by the way, you’ll be extremely prepared for because of what you’ve learned both in and out of class.
