The Andres School of Education

Alisha Kilburg

"I loved Upper Iowa University because it was not just a school to me. It was a new home – a place where I felt comfortable and could experience so many new things. I graduated from UIU with two study abroad experiences, a trip biking across Iowa with Team Peacock, and a new job on top of so many other things. I created life long relationships with people all over the world and I still have support from faculty and staff. At UIU you are treated like a person instead of a number. One of the reasons why I chose UIU was because of the small class sizes. Throughout my college career, I grew as an educator and as a person. The education program is outstanding as they give you many opportunities to work with different schools and classrooms. Looking back, I would not choose a different path to go down because no matter who you are, UIU has something special for you."
