    It's very expensive, I think too expensive, but it's a good, safe school in a decent location and pretty new amenities, you can go to many free events and sporting events, but not as many free events as other universities

    As WLC is a private college, it is a very expensive school. Depending on your financial aid and scholarships, the school may or not be worth going to. The meal plan is the one thing that I would say is definately overpriced. But if you are looking for a Christian (particularly Lutheran) school this is a good choice. There are daily chapel services, and Sunday morning services as well as transportation to local churchs on Sunday morning. Christ is also incorporated into every class, which is something really great for people who are very excited about their religion, or who want to avoid being prejudiced against because of their religion.

    As with private schools, WLC looks expensive at a glance. But with help from financial aid, you will find a way through grants and loans.
