What Students Are Saying

3.49 Average Rating
At the University of Valley Forge, you'll experience a close-knit, fun Christian environment that focuses on building you up educationally as well as spiritually. There are many opportunities available and resources that can help you develop outside of the classroom in real-world settings, and it is easy to find people with similar interests as you. Student-led clubs are another awesome way to get plugged in and do something you love with people just like you; with a smaller campus setting, it is much easier to make friends that will stick with you.
Ryan F.
The University of Valley Forge will not only offer you a great education from professors who truly care about you and your wellbeing as much as your academic performance, but will also offer you an atmosphere of family, fellowship, and fun. You will be accepted and loved from your first moments at the Forge. Not only will you meet a new community of people who will become life-long friends, but you will be in a community of people who share, respect, and encourage your beliefs and relationship with Christ.

You shouldn't come here if you are specifically looking for someone to marry or if you enjoy to have a few drinks now and then etc. This is a great school for people who's main focus is to live their lives for God. This has to be your main priority though, and if it is you'll love it here.
