I love Dordt College because of the friendships and the community I have experienced here. As a student wanting to grow in my education as well as my Christian faith, this place has helped me become the person that God has created me to be. I am going into my sophomore year of college, and I was so excited to come back! It is home to me. The small class sizes allow me to get to know more students and my professors on a first-name basis. There is not much that I would recommend they change. This school is a great choice!

I LOVE it at Dordt. The education is great, professors are friendly, and campus is so fun! The community here is amazing and I've made so many friends in the past two years. If you're looking for a great Christian college, check Dordt out!
You'll find a community of like-minded people, 90% of which comes from a Reformed Christian, Dutch-American background. The saying goes, "if you're not Dutch, you ain't much." You'll fit right in if you're one of them. If not, then you'll find yourself a minority here. Overall people are generally friendly and helpful, through not necessarily open-minded.
