What Students Are Saying

4.08 Average Rating
Luther students know how to have fun, but they also are held to high expectations by most professors. For example, every freshman must take a course called Paideia, which is basically a mixture of history and English. Within this class, students are expected to read various books and other readings, participate in class discussion, and write formal and informal essays. By having to take Paideia at the beginning of their Luther experience, students are able to jump into the rhythm of college and its complexity rather early in the game.

The professors expect a lot of you throughout campus, but you form such a close bond with them and all your classmates that it is easy to want to work hard and make them proud!

Though I'm not a student there myself (yet?) I know the courses are good quality.

Luther College makes it a point to have every student well rounded in every area of study, rather than just focusing on your intended major. They do this by having all-college requirements that every student has to take in order to graduate. This includes taking Paideia as a first-year student, which focuses on writing, reading, thinking, and discussing topics that are important in the world today.

The teachers truly care about what they're teaching. In each of the classes, you learn so much and are able to apply what you learn to your life.
Jennifer from Saint Paul, MN
There is definitely a class for everyone, no matter your academic level. Counselors and teachers are ready to help you find the class that fits you, whether you need to be moved into a more challenging course, or maybe you need to take a step back.
