Luther is an outstanding private liberal arts college. The faculty and students are friendly, and the campus is absolutely beautiful. From taking interesting classes to exploring the quaint town of Decorah, Iowa, Luther students certainly enjoy a great college experience; spend four years at Luther, and learn to bleed blue.

luther has an incredible, open, inviting atmosphere that is nothing short of warm and welcoming. the students and staff are ridiculously friendly, and everyone goes out of their way to help others. classes are taught by challenging, engaging professors that truly love to be here as much as the students do.
