What Students Are Saying

4.00 Average Rating
The Wartburg student body is very close-knit. It is very common for professors and even the president of the college to invite students to have dinner at their house. The academics are stellar, especially in the music and science departments.
Andrea from Waverly, IA
This is a great college for people interested in biology and/or music. I plan to go here for just that! I love the atmosphere and it just seems like home.
