What Students Are Saying

4.00 Average Rating
Visit campus before deciding on any college.
Cathy from Lansing, IA
Come and visit! If you are wanting to be involved in extracurricular activities stay overnight with someone who is involved in them. This is the best way to see if a school is right for you and your career aspirations.
I encourage looking at small schools because they offer more one-on-one assistance with everything, they are willing to give more scholarship money, and they seem like more of a community.
Markeyta from Chicago, IL
If you are from a big city try not to judge the town when you first get here. Give the town and the school a chance because it will be worth it. Make sure that you make friends with all of the different people here.
Alexandria from Chicago, IL
Wartburg College does an excellent job of transitioning you into the college life with their Orange EXCELeration program that occurs about a week before classes start. It exposes you to the different aspects of campus life, as well as gets you familiar with professors and their expectations. Without it, I don't think I would be as excited as I am for this upcoming year.
Kyle from Waverly, IA
1) Don't let the sticker price scare you!
2) Get involved. . . there is so much to do and time flies! Make it worth while!
3) Actually do your homework. Some teachers will never notice if you don't, but classes will be so much more enjoyable (and your grade will like it too!).
4) Be yourself - college is a place to find people who love you for you!
Alyssa from Marion, IA
Take a visit, sit in on a class. You will see that the professors and other students are great and that Wartburg is a beautiful campus.
