What Students Are Saying

4.08 Average Rating
luther college is an amazing school. the people who go here are fantastic and the community we add to is a lasting one. i didn't think it would be possible to love a school this much!
Katherine from Inver Grove Heights, MN
It has a great atmosphere, where I feel welcomed and at home. There are so many great activities and programs to be a part of such as, music ensembles, student-lead groups, and the outstanding nursing program. Since it is a smaller campus, you have more opportunity for one-on-one time with a teacher and/or tutor and it is really easy to get to know all sorts of different people.
