UIU President William R. Duffy II says,

"The cost of attending college has reached a point where many students and their families simply do not consider certain schools when they begin to explore college options,". "To us, making sure a student bases their college choice on the best fit for them is what's most important."

Upper Iowa University was founded in 1857.  It has about 4,500 students.
